The hiking route is of medium difficulty and will take us to the Pic del Port Vell peak, which is nearly 2.700m high. It gives us impressive views of the mountains of Arcalis.

The route starts at the viewpoint with the interesting sculpture of the “Tempesta en una Tassa de Te” (“Storm in a Teacup”), by American artist Dennis Oppenheim (42º 33' 7.3296", 1º 27' 15.699"), at the ski station Coll de la Botella Vallnord – Pal Arinsal.

The fauna and flora you’ll find along the route is typically alpine. In the highest areas there is still a large variety of plant species, including the typical blueflowered Phyteuma hemisphaericum, the white flowered lady of the snows (Phulsatilla vernalis) and the Ranunculus pyrenaeus, the pinkflowered cushion pink (Silene acaulis) and the purple-flowered Viola cenisia.

The fauna that inhabits this high-altitude setting includes stoats (Mustela erminea) and rock ptarmigans (Lagopus muta), which change colour and turn entirely white in winter. You might also be able to spot red squirrels (Sciurus vulgaris), Eurasian jays (Garrulus glandarius), or even Pyrenean chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra).

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.
