The route begins at the Grandvalira Grau Roig car park. Specifically, in the Cubil car park (42° 31' 54",01° 41' 51"). Leaving the chairlift behind you, head west towards the forest until you get to the Vodkabar hut.  Here you'll find directions leading you through the middle of the forest to Estany Primer de Pessons. The uphill walk doesn’t involve any technical difficulty and thus allows you to observe the animal species and the surrounding forest vegetation.

Once you come through the forest, Estany Primer de Pessons opens up before you.   On the other side, going around the edge of the lake, you can reach the Borda de Pessons restaurant.

The Cercle de Pessons is one of the most spectacular and well-known glacial spots of Andorra.

The return can be done by either going back down the way you came, or you also have the option to go back through the forest path. In both cases, the paths lead back to your departure point.

For your safety, we recommend doing all routes above 1700 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’ll find more details about this and other routes in the Trails of Andorra Hiking Guide.
