Andorra Crown of Lakes | Half Circuit

5 Days

A captivating trek that encircles the picturesque Principality of Andorra. The trail traverses through diverse terrain, from lush forests to high alpine meadows and rocky terrain. It crosses cols close to the border with France.

We offer this trek from May – end of September.


Embark on an unforgettable journey as you explore the Coronollacs Trail, a picturesque loop around the Principality of Andorra. This trail offers mesmerising vistas of rugged landscapes, picturesque valleys, lakes, and high peaks – inviting you to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.

As you traverse the trail, you’ll find yourself straddling the borders of Andorra and France, soaking in the rich ecosystem and admiring the timeless Romanesque architecture that dots the landscape. Spanning approximately 100 kilometres, the Full Coronollacs Trail Challenge typically spans 5 to 7 days, offering a glimpse into the intriguing history of this unique principality.

Our Coronollacs experience promises a special immersion into Andorra’s vibrant culture, multicultural community, delicious cuisine, tax-free shopping, and fascinating stories of wartime escapes.


Kick off your adventure with a warm welcome in Andorra La Vella, accessible via regular bus links from Barcelona. Alternatively, we can arrange pickup from Ax les Thermes if you're arriving in Toulouse. Gather for a briefing at 19:00 hours followed by dinner at a local restaurant. We’ll rest for the night at 4 star Hotel Carlemany, Andorra La Vella.

Embark on foot via the Tosca Bridge, tracing the GR7 to the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Trek steeply to Entremesaigües, passing Sassanat Bridge and reaching Pla de l’Ingla, where the majestic Refuge de l’Illa awaits with its wooden deck overlooking breathtaking sunset views. Enjoy dinner and rest in shared dorms at the refuge.

After ascending to the Col de Pessons (2810m), we're greeted with a breathtaking vista of the stunning lacs del Pessons. Descending past these, we reach the Pla de les Pedres Refuge (2150m), nestled in a ski area near the quaint town of Les Bordes d’Envalira. Our next ascent takes us to Port Dret, offering panoramic views of Andorra, France, and the picturesque valleys of Soldeu and Siscaró. We then descend to Siscaró Refuge, where the terrain becomes rougher and more technical. Tonight, we find rest and warmth at Juclà Refuge (2310m), tucked amidst imposing peaks. After a hearty meal, we retire early in shared dorms, preparing for the next day's sunrise spectacle at Coll de l’Alba. Journey: 19.4km | +1350m | -1527m.
