“Tracks and footprints” is one of the Macarulla little magical trails located in Els Cortals d’Encamp, a unique natural area in Encamp parish.

The route introduces kids to hiking through different games and activities, so they can become explorers and discover the principality's native fauna.

The Forest, a being of great wisdom and a protector of many animal and plant species, is the perfect host for learning about the animals that live there. Ingenuity, skill and sharp eyes are what helps good explorers recognize their tracks.

The trail starts from the Cortals d’Encamp road at the intersection that leads to the Pleta dels Orris picnic area. The route is designed for kids and families to have fun learning about the most well-known animal species in Andorra: their habitat, their diet, how they move around, their tracks and prints. A guide will be there to play and help with the activities.

At the end of the trail is the Pleta dels Orris picnic area where you can take a break before finishing the route and visit Enko the Tamarro. This area provides access to the hiking trails around the Ensagents lakes and the spectacular Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. 

After finishing the route, you can download the diploma accrediting boys and girls as “Macarullas” from the Visitandorra website.

At the tourist offices you’ll find pamphlets for exploring “Tracks and prints” and other trails as a family. An added value of the Macarulla little magical trails is that the play equipment and “hidden” surprises are conceived and designed by local artists and artisans using high-quality materials that are environmentally friendly, so they perfectly integrate into the landscape.
