Encamp


An easy and interesting hiking trail. Here's all you need to know on this itinerary that begins in Encamp and ends at Lake Engolasters, in Andorra.

The Engolasters route is an interesting options for anyone who fancies an easy hike in Andorra. It's a short, linear and fairly flat route with an elevation of only 408 metres over the course of 2 km. This route is approximately 2 hours long: 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach the end and 45 minutes back (the return journey is downhill). The area that it passes through belongs to the parish of Encamp. The best time of year to take this hike is from June to September.

Brief description of the route

This route begins in the town of Encamp, in the homonymous parish, or more specifically, in front of the Automobile Museum, where you'll easily spot the sign that indicates the beginning of the route, which sets off towards Lake Engolasters and the Blanc river. The pathway heads southward, passing over waterways and a few roads, which should always be crossed with utmost caution. The route eventually merges with the GR-11, which is one of the long-distance trails that pass through Andorra. From here on, hikers need only follow the red and white marks.

On either side of the path you'll find some of the region's most common species of flora, particularly the dianthus hyssopifolius, commonly known as the fringed pink. You'll also find plenty of traditional Andorran buildings scattered along the itinerary, such as the Cresper “borda” (mountain cabin).
