One of the most popular accesses to the valley is on the road to Engolasters (42.517536, 1.571087).

Its network of hiking routes and high mountain huts allows for a large number of excursions to contemplate the home to animal and plant species that are very rare or in danger of extinction.
Discover dry stone
Whatever route you choose through the Madriu-Perafita-Claror valley, you’ll find old shepherd cabins recently restored in a traditional way, plots of land enclosed by walls that once contained vegetable gardens, huts and grazing areas for livestock, etc. In summer, don’t miss out on spending a night in any of the five refuges to be found in the valley. The stone-paved pathway of the Madriu-Perafita-Claror valley, which corresponds to some sections of the GR7 (GR footpath) and GR11 (GR footpath), constitutes one of the more eminently characteristic aspects of this cultural landscape.
The Coronallacs trail
This valley also offers you the chance to hike along one of its most attractive trails, The Coronallacs Trail: a circular hiking trail that is about 90 km long, connecting the 4 refuges in Andorra. This route will take you about 5 days to complete and starts at the parish of Escaldes.
