Trekking en Andorra

What is Trekking?

 

Trekking or hiking, is a mountaineering specialty which consists in walking foot trails in the countryside or in the mountains. It is a unique way to stay in touch with nature and enjoy it as much as possible.

 

Why Andorra?

 

Andorra has a lot of mountains with beautiful valleys with heights that nearly reach 3,000 metres of altitude. So it is one of the most important tourist destinations in the Pyrenees. By making these walking routes between the Andorran nature, you can learn more about this small country located between France and Catalonia.
 

How does the activity work?

 

In your confirmation voucher you will find the day and time of the assigned activity as well as a contact number and an email in case you want to modify your selected timetable. As a normal walking activity, it will take place the day after the first night of your booking, at 9am. If the first hour is full, the following time is 11.15am.

If you have hired different hiking excursions, these will be held on consecutive days to the first one.

 

Where is the starting point?
 

There are 7 routes available, one for each day of the week. The organising company has the right to change the route depending on the number of participants and weather conditions.

Note that the starting point is different depending on which day you make the trip:
