SORTENY NATURE PARK

SORTENY NATURE PARK

Ordino


Sorteny Nature Park is a botanical paradise with more than 800 species of flowers and plants, some unique to the Pyrenees. 

Ordino


In an area of 1,080 ha. there are chamois, roe deer, marmots, martas and wild boars. The Sorteny Valley nature park is very rich in flora, with more than 700 phanerogam species. More than 50 species are endemic in the Pyrenees. Guided thematic excursions are organised throughout the year (eco tourist routes): birds, butterflies and wetlands, glacial circus countryside and ancient forests.

Most of the inhabitants of the nature park are of community interest, such as the wildflower meadow, the plains, the forests of mountain pine and the alpine meadows, some of which are priority such as the marshes with moss hillocks. 

The Sorteny River is the backbone to the Sorteny Valley hydrographic network, rising at 2,082m, where the Serrera and Cebollera rivers, which rise respectively at 2,680m (the highest river source in Andorra) and 2,485 m come together.

The presence of iron and copper minerals meant that in the 17th and 18th century mining operations were set up, particularly in the area of la Serrera (clots dels Meners) at 2,510m. 

To reach this park, take the CG3 heading towards Ordino Arcalis and turn onto the CS370 once you have passed the village of Serrat.

The park also boasts a warden-protected lodge that is open in both winter and summer, with restaurant services available.
