The Fonts d’Engolasters circuit is Andorra’s first universally accessible hiking trail. This extremely beautiful area of nature has allowed intervention to make it accessible to people with visual impairment and/or reduced mobility. This equipment was started up with the technical advice of the ONCE Spanish national organisation for the blind.
Specific materials and techniques were used to set up the path (texture, colours, etc.) for the blind or visually disabled to be able to perceive and anticipate possible obstacles by following the rail that runs along the entire path or with the help of a stick.
The spring trail starts in the car park on the Engolasters road and continues to the Corralets picnic area. The trail takes a little over 1.5 hours to walk and has a total length of 2.8 kilometres, of which the adapted Engolasters section comprises some 1.2 kilometres.
As the name of the trail suggests, throughout the route you will come across stunning natural springs beauty, such as Font de les Ordigues, Font de les Molleres, Font dels Corralets, and last but not least, Font de la Closa.
