Different popular “castanyades” are held in Andorra for All Saints.
The route of the Estany de les Abelletes lake is in Pas de la Casa.
It is 800 metres long and you can get there in little over an hour. This is an easy outing ideal for the whole family.
The les Abelletes Lake, which is very popular amongst fishermen for its trout and salmon population, is at the head of the Pas de la Casa river basin that forms a natural frontier with France. For this reason, part of the lake is in France and the other part in Andorra. We start our walk at the base of the Coll dels Isards chairlift in Grandvalira following the river banks to a water tank. From this point we continue along a forest path that climbs up to the right of the river to the lake.
The route starts at the base of the Coll dels Isards chairlift in Grandvalira - Pas de la Casa (42° 32' 27",1° 43' 59").
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.
