The les Abelletes Lake, which is very popular amongst fishermen for its trout and salmon population, is at the head of the Pas de la Casa river basin that forms a natural frontier with France. For this reason, part of the lake is in France and the other part in Andorra. We start our walk at the base of the Coll dels Isards chairlift in Grandvalira following the river banks to a water tank. From this point we continue along a forest path that climbs up to the right of the river to the lake.

The route starts at the base of the Coll dels Isards chairlift in Grandvalira - Pas de la Casa (42º 32' 12.6168", 1º 44' 0.852").

For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1,700 metres between the end of June and the end of September. However, if the weather and terrain conditions allow it, the season may extend from May to October.

You will find further details of this and other routes in the Hiking guide Trails of Andorra.
