It is in the south-east of the Principality of Andorra and occupies 10% of the country’s territory

The Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley stretches through the parishes of Andorra la Vella, Escaldes-Engordany, Encamp and Sant Julià de Lòria. One of the most popular accesses to the valley is on the road to Engolasters (42.517536, 1.571087). This valley is the most important secondary river basin in the country and is 12 km long from end to end and drops 1,855m. Its highest point is the Pic de la Portelleta (alt. 2,905). Its network of hiking routes and high mountain huts allows for a large number of excursions to contemplate the local fauna and flora.

Guided thematic excursions organised in summer (eco tourist routes).

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.
