Andorra snowshoe and culture week

5 Days


Day 1 :

You have the option of booking the Andbus from Toulouse or Barcelona to Andorra or booking a pickup with us and transfer to Chez Arran apartments or a family hotel in Ax les Thermes from Toulouse Blagnac.

Pessons Frozen lakes
The path climbs through a mountain pine forest after which we cross a ski slope to descend to our first lake Estany de Primer and enjoy a fantastic mountain restaurant. We then climb through granite boulders and more pine towards the impressive cirque de Pessons and several beautiful lakes before returning to Grau Roig.
Time 5-6 hours Distance 10.5km Ascent/Descent 300m Hotel Soldeu 4*

Val d’incles
One of Andorra’s most pristine valleys with typical Bordas (local barns) and One of the main valleys where the French Resistance passed during the 2nd World War guiding refugees. During the walk our local guide will hopefully be able to point tracks left in the snow from hares, foxes, squirrels, pine martins and many other animals.
TOUGHER We extend the journey to the panoramic Cabane Sorda and lake with +440m height gain or up towards the port de Fontargente (Incles) and the border with France if conditions allow. Hotel Soldeu 4*

In the morning we transfer to El Serrat above La Massana and Ordino which takes just under an hour. Today we climb up through beautiful woodland to break out into a remote open valley with a babbling stream. Ascending for approximately 2 hours we will have the choice to continue, passing the refuge de Rialb (1990m) to a "port" on the border with France or loop around depending on the snow conditions. Again this area was frequently used for escapes from France to Andorra and there is a small museum to refugees close to where our route starts which may be visited. 4* Hotel with spa in El Serrat or La Massana.

From El Serrat or Massana we depart and can drop people in Andorra la Vella who would like to depart to Barcelona and continue back to Ax les Thermes train station in France. It is also possible to book transport all the way back to Toulouse.
