Ordino


This itinerary is in the north of the Principality of Andorra, near the Ordino-Arcalís ski resort.

Although the route passes through high-mountain terrain, it’s an easy walk and a perfect outing for the whole family. During the entire length of the route you’ll have spectacular views of the peaks of Font Blanca (2,903 m), La Serrera (2,913 m), La Cabaneta (2,864 m) and L’Estanyó (2,915 m).

The area that this route passes through, nonetheless, is mostly earth-coloured. At first glance it appears devoid of life, but in reality, it’s full of all kinds of more subtle biological wonders. Siliceous Pyrenean grasslands such as Festuca eskia, Festuca supina and Carex curvula are a common sight all along the route. There are also several species of small flowers including Pyrenean gentians (Gentiana pirenaica) and Iberian sheep’s bit (Jasione crispa).

Starting point: Take the CG-3 towards Ordino. When you get to Ordino, stay on the CG-3 in the direction of Arcalís-Vallnord. When you reach the base of the ski resort, keep ascending along CS-380, towards La Coma. Before you reach the restaurant in La Coma, you’ll find a sign with a map of the ponds of Tristaina. That’s where this excursion begins. (42°38'21.7", 1°30'52.5")

For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1700 metres between the end of June and the end of September.

You will find further details of this and other routes in the Hiking guide Trails of Andorra.
