The excursion to the Tristaina lakes is one of the most popular in Andorra.
This is a series of three high mountain lakes, the first of which is just 45 minutes from the start.
To get to the Tristaina lakes, we follow the CG-3 at the top of Arcalís (Ordino). We park our car at the La Coma restaurant and start to walk. The path of the first lake, which is called ‘estany primer’, is very easy and not very steep. The route continues to the second ‘estany del mig’, crossing a small wooden bridge, and if we want to complete the circuit, we can go to the lake further up, which is the largest of the three. The path is very busy and well marked, so there is no risk of getting lost.
The route starts at the La Coma restaurant in Arcalís (42° 37' 54",1° 28' 56").
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.
