Cultural hiking: el camí

It is a route through the culture, the history, the scenery and the spirit of Catalan culture that unites all of the places along the route. 

The Camí a Andorra forms part of a longer route that starts in Formigueres, in French Catalonia, then passes through Els Angles and Porté-Puymorens to Andorra, which it enters through el Pas de la Casa. It crosses the Country of the Pyrenees and enters Catalonia through Bescaran, Estamariu and ends at la Seu d’Urgell.

Inside Andorra, El Camí runs 87.89km starting at the village of el Pas de la Casa, climbing towards the Incles Valley and reaching Soldeu and el Tarter. It follows the Valira d’Orient river to Canillo, Prats and to the Sanctuary of Our Lady Mare de Déu de Meritxell before going on to the Bordes de Mereig houses and the Coll d’Ordino mountain pass to reach the village of Segudet and Ordino. Following the Valira del Nord river it comes to El Pui and La Massana and goes on to Sispony and Anyós. From here it climbs back up to the Collada de Beixalís pass and follows the Solà d’Encamp to the parish of Encamp, and from here it goes to the Engolasters lake and the Madriu Valley and on to Escaldes-Engordany and Andorra la Vella. Following the Valira River it comes to Santa Coloma, Aixovall and Sant Julià de Lòria. It then climbs back up to the little village of Aixirivall and Aubinyà until it reaches the border with the Alt Urgell region through the Coll de Pardaló pass and the Font dels Traginers.

The information on the section that crosses Andorra is published in the guide “The Path to the Capcir, Andorra and the Alt Urgell. Valleys and Villages of the Pyrenees”, in bookshops and tourist offices of the principality.
