This circular 18 km mountain bike route, with 600 m in elevation difference, is of very high difficulty.

The starting point is the Coll de la Botella restaurant, a bike friendly establishment where you will find, among other things, a space to store your bikes and charging points in case you're using electric bikes. The route is classified as a black route (very difficult) not because of its technical difficulty, as it has a descent with some of the best views of Andorra, but because it is a route that crosses into Spanish territory via a 50 m walkway that is classified as dangerous, which we advise should not be done alone.

The route leaves Coll de la Botella at an altitude of 2,145 m along one of the e-bike routes of the Vallnord bike park, crossing it laterally, and from there continues the descent towards the village of Os de Civís (Spain) via Collada de Montane. As we said earlier, this descent offers some of the best views of Andorra, and runs along a single track with a couple of technical sections that remain totally accessible with any type of bike. After this part of the descent, the route continues down until it reaches Os de Civís; we recommend you take a little time to visit the town and get your strength back before starting the ascent back up to Coll de la Botella through the Setúria area.

The ascent follows a wide path at the end of which it enters the forest. This is where you will find the DANGEROUS WALKWAY! This stretch, some 50m long, is where you will have to dismount and where you have to climb a rocky step where the help of a companion will come in handy. This is the reason why we recommend not doing this route alone.

Once past this point, you will reach the Setúria area, a valley with spectacular scenery and where you can see some typical Andorran bordes nearby. Once you've passed these traditional rural buildings, on your right you will be able to see an ascent that will lead you to the Setúria dirt track, which will take you to the end of the route, returning to Coll de la Botella, from where the route first set out.

The route will take 3h to complete. Suitable for mountain bikes and e-bikes.
