Touring the viewpoints of Andorra

We suggest an itinerary around some of Andorra’s viewpoints to get to know the country through its most beautiful landscapes. You can visit them in summer, but also the rest of the year to see the contrasting colours of the mountains and enjoy the views!

The Roc del Quer

Let’s start with the most famous viewpoint in Andorra and the most popular on Instagram. It is located in Canillo, in the same parish where the hotel del Tarter is located and is easily accessible by car or bike (if you are a cycling enthusiast, we strongly recommend this route). The last stretch on foot is easy and at the end you will find a 20-metre footbridge, 12 metres of which fly over the mountain. The final climax is a sculpture of a thinker who seems to be floating in the air.

The path of Les Pardines
This unpaved track goes from Els Cortals d’Encamp to the lake of Engolasters. It is very easy to do with the whole family and has a distance of 3 km. from where you can enjoy the views over the parish of Encamp. The path runs through a botanical garden integrated into the vegetation, waterfalls and several observation points from where you can take beautiful photos.
The new Mirador Solar viewpoint
We continue to the Ordino-Arcalís ski resort to go up to the newest viewpoint in Andorra. Opened last summer, you can reach it on foot or by cable car and chairlift (although in both cases, the last stretch must be done on foot). This viewpoint is located at an altitude of 2,700 metres above the Peyreguils peak. It is a sundial with a 25-metre-diameter round sphere in suspension, from where you can admire the peaks of the Tristaina cirque and see the geographical border between Andorra and France.

The viewpoint of the Les Fonts circuit
This route is in Engolasters, in the parish of Escaldes. It is an easily accessible path through the forest. Along the way you can enjoy the local flora and fauna and it is also suitable for the whole family. The viewpoint is halfway along the path, from where you will have a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding peaks and the Romanesque church of Sant Miquel d’Engolasters. The route is also the starting point for high mountain excursions and there is also a climbing point.

These are just some of Andorra’s viewpoints, but there are many more. You just have to come and discover them.
