The Coronallacs allows you to discover the country's four mountain shelters with wardens as you complete a circular route.

It is designed to be done in five long stages. It covers 90 km in total and is ideal for spending the night in shelters, carrying little weight on your back.

The Coronallacs allows you to enjoy amazing panoramic views throughout, as the route crosses high mountain terrain. It is divided into five stages ranging between 13 and 22 km each, with an average of 18.4 km/day. It follows hiking trails that vary in difficulty and length, and nights are spent in Andorra's four high-mountain shelters.

The route departs from the town of Escaldes-Engordany and passes through Encamp, Canillo, Ordino and La Massana, ending at the starting point in Escaldes.

Stages:

1: Escaldes-Engordany town center – L'Illa shelter
Depart from Escaldes-Engordany (Tourist Office) crossing La Tosca bridge. Follow the GR7 path to directly enter the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, declared a UNESCO Cultural Landscape World Heritage Site in 2004. Continue on to Entremesaigües, the stone farm buildings ('bordes') at Ràmio (site of cultural interest), Fontverd and La Farga (site of cultural interest due to its iron working past).

This is the lowest and most forested part of the trail, where you will find mountain pines and deciduous trees.

Between Fontverd and the River Els Orris, there are chamois, wild boar, mouflon and marmots.
