A circular route that combines stretches of metalled road with others of mountain track and runs through the parishes of Canillo and Encamp.

We start the route from Canillo, taking the turnoff from the road that leads to Coll d'Ordino. A gentle and easy ascent on which we enjoy views of Canillo as we gain height. Depending on which way we are walking on the hillside, we will be able to see panoramic views of the Forn de Canillo, the valley of l'Armiana, or a little further up, the Montaup valley, with the peak of Casamanya as a backdrop. As a reference point, we can always see Roc del Quer to the left of the road; this is a tourist point of interest where we can visit the suspended platform and photograph the impressive views, at about km 7 of the route.

Then, we climb the last 2 km up to the Coll d'Ordino, passing through the Mereig meadows, where we can see the views over the Nord, La Massana and Ordino valleys, with the slopes of Pal and Arinsal, and the peak of Comapedrosa, among others, in the background. From this point, we pedal downwards, for about 2km, until we find the turnoff to the left, which is the path that leads us to Font del Mallol. A slightly physically demanding section a few km in length, but the E-bikes make it easier.

Once at the Font de Mallol meadows, we take the wide track downhill until we reach the road from Beixalís to Anyós. We climb up this road to the Collada de Beixalís and then make our last descent to Encamp, passing through the small village of Vila.

From Encamp, we return to Canillo, passing through Meritxell. According to the signals on the track we can follow the track, or the general road that goes up to the sanctuary of the Virgin of Meritxell, and from there follow the path to Prats. From here, we go on until we reach Canillo.
