Circular route that ascends to one of the highest peaks of the Principality, the Pic de l'Estanyó, of 2915m.
Circuit with strong climbing slope. To download, we can do it without loss until the end of the track, making it difficult to find a smoother slope that will allow us to go down to the Montaup Plans easily, and connect again with the track to return.
Route with many stretches you can run, which will allow you to keep up a good constant pace. Exercise caution when descending the cobbled road from Coll Jovell to Escaldes on rainy days or when there’s a lot of humidity.
A route that is not technically difficult and will allow you to enter the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. There is a short technical section on the descent from Monturull peak to Coll de Claror.
A route that is not technically difficult and will allow you to discover the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Once at the Ponds of l'Olla meadows, you can go off the track slightly if you would like to visit the Claror shelter, which will be to your right.
A short but very scenic route that will allow you to enjoy the Comapedrosa shelter, with spectacular views of the highlands.
A very alpine circular route that reaches the summit of the country’s highest peak. It’s possible to see snow in the highlands and the descent from Malhivern until well into summer. Without going through the door itself, it’s possible to access the Comapedrosa shelter by deviating just 5 minutes from the itinerary.
Circular route where we will meet the towns of Llorts and Arans, and different borders that will be transported to the past farmer of the country. Virtually all of the route follows GR for well-milled and obvious paths.
Circular route around Sant Julià de Lòria, without climbing high, where we will run along the obaga slope and the valley's solarium. This route can be practiced practically throughout the year.
Route where you can enjoy the fantastic views of the Estanys de Tristaina lakes from the peak of the same name, one of the most emblematic in the country. Short ridge stretch with some technical sectors where you will have to help yourself using your hands.
Alpine route with sections of an air ridge where we will discover the Natural Park of the Valley of Sorteny and ascend to Pic de l'Estanyó, one of the highest peaks in the principality.
Circular route where we crown one of the most emblematic peaks in Andorra, the Pico de Casamanya, with 360º views.
Great views from the summits and the entire limestone stretch, from where we can see the valley that we have overcome, and the parallel valleys.
Circular route via forest, protected from possible wind, with a flat start and finish.
A route that passes through a number of the parish’s key points, ideal for almost all year round as it avoids very high elevations.
A short route, ideal for quick casual training with a bit of everything, good views, fast stretches, steep ascents and even a short stretch with ropes.
Circuit with a first half faster, and a second part with a strong slope. The descent can be done in the direction of Coll d'Ordino, on the classic climbing path, and from this point we will follow the GR in descent to return to the starting point.

Accommodation adapted for hikers
In Andorra, we take care of the hikers that plan their routes in Andorra.
That's why hotels adapt their offer to travellers' needs. If you are going to do a stage on foot, you can choose the mountain accommodation that suits your requirements.
There are manned refuges, which essentially are rural houses or mountain constructions that offer all the services you could possibly need: breakfast, lunch and dinner in their restaurant café, Wi-Fi, satellite TV, heating and all facilities provided by quality accommodation. If you're talking about a high-mountain route and long-distance trail, you may need to use our unmanned refuges. These are located in privileged natural environments, although with very difficult access. That's why they have no reception and don't offer regular hotel services.
And if you are a cyclist, you should know that many of our accommodations can be considered bike-friendly, as they adapt their offer and facilities to guests just like you. In this sense, meal varieties and times are more extensive, and spaces are provided for storing your bike overnight, washing it during the day and even making some small adjustments and repairs.
