CClose your eyes, breathe and imagine you’re surrounded by nature… if you come to spend the summer holidays in Andorra, you won’t have to imagine it. Today we tell you where to find the best sites to get lost and discover new spots.
Natural park of the Sorteny Valley
This jewel of nature is located in the parish of Ordino at an altitude of 1,880 metres, towards the Arcalís ski slopes. Its beauty makes it a unique place to enjoy the landscape and the local fauna and flora.
In the park you will find different tracks of different levels, accessible for families with children as well as for mountain lovers. There is also the possibility of booking them with professional guides.
If you feel like taking a walk in the mountains, we recommend you to go to the Estret de l’Estanyó viewpoint, which is 1 hour away, to watch the different types of birds. For the more adventurous who want to crown a peak, do not miss the climb to the Peak of Estanyó (2,915 m) or the Pic of la Serrera (2,913 m). Both are ascents of about 1000 meters and about 3 hours, approximately.
Comapedrosa Natural Park
It is located in the parish of La Massana, coming from the village of Arinsal. The park has a total protected area of about 15 km2 and also offers a number of mountain routes, of different levels. From here you can reach the highest peak in Andorra: the Comapedrosa at 2,942 metres. One of its attractions is to discover its rich biodiversity around the park, while crossing forests, lakes and waterfalls. On the way you will also find several guarded refuges. In addition, you can also make excursions on horseback, if you prefer. From the Comapedrosa interpretation centre, you can get information about the park and hire guided tours if you wish.
