Description

This is a guide to the walks, scrambles, via ferratas and treks in the tiny Pyrenean country of Andorra. Hidden away in the mountains between France and Spain, Andorra has only 468 square kilometres, but they include excellent Pyrenean potential. This guide includes 58 walk and scramble routes throughout the country, as well as 9 via ferrata routes and the 6-stage Andorra Circuit - a trek around the Principality.

With 80 mountain lakes and a host of elegant peaks Andorra offers a breathtaking range of walks in a compact area. This is a country of high, rocky passes, snow-speckled summits, flower-strewn mountain meadows and grassy scoops of valleys. 

The guide is a perfect companion to making the most of mountain adventures in Andorra. It provides practical information on language and transport to and around the country, as well as details on accommodation, mountain huts, maps, history and places of interest along the way. Sketch maps accompany each route, along with breathtaking photography throughout the guide.

  • Andorra is trilingual, with Catalan as the main language. The guide includes a Catalan-English-Spanish-French glossary of useful words and phrases.
  • Walks range from gentle valley walks to tough mountain days, and are graded accordingly, so there is potential to explore Andorra for walkers of all abilities.
  • The guide includes information on the best times to go, safety in the mountains and key information on making the most out of your walking.
  • Seasons
    Summer weather usually excellent from May to September. Snow may have melted in May; sometimes persists until well into June.
  • Centres
    Encamp and towns on the main valley road, but the real delight of Andorra is the higher mountain villages such as Arinsal and Ordino.
  • Difficulty
    Everything from easy walks, long walks and a trek, to scrambles and (if this is your bag) the excitement of via ferratas.
  • Must See
    The scrambly walking on the frontier ridges, mountain villages, an outstanding refuge network. NOT the valley, but this is soon left behind.
