Hiking has never been more civilised! Stay in a serviced mountain refuge under the stars…
Posted on July 6th, 2018
Glamping it is not but staying in a fully serviced mountain refuge sure does beat hiking with a heavy backpack full of tent equipment and food. Hiking to one of the lovely far flung peaks of Andorra secure in the knowledge that you can stay in a traditional mountain hut and be fed, watered and provided with a bed for the night is a great feeling. The sense of being in the mountains is never more apparent than when sleeping in them also, taking in the night shows on offer and feeling closer than ever to the stars. A great family experience for a night or two or why not try a longer 3 or 4 night route mountain hopping around the principality.

Posted on May 17th, 2018
With the warmer weather starting to show itself this late Spring/early Summer why not head off and get away from it all with some mountain adventure coupled with the culture and backdrop of the great city of Barcelona. Fly to Barcelona from the many UK airport hubs and travel the short distance to Andorra for a few days hiking or biking in the fresh mountain air. Stay in a great hotel for some home comforts, enjoy fabulous food and then when you are refreshed and energised head back to Barcelona for a few days of culture and relaxation in the renowned and bustling city. Barcelona has so much to offer also of course, from the art of Gaudi and Sagrada Familia, to the atmospheric La Rambla, the superb Gothic Quarter, Camp Nou for sports lovers and not to mention the idyllic beach. If you love the mountains or want to try something different, you’ll love the diversity that Andorra and Barcelona can both provide together.

Some Great Andorra Mountain Hikes
Posted on April 26th, 2018
Whether you like to hike high mountain peaks, trek to remote turquoise lakes, take in the views of magnificent ranges, sleep under the stars or to scramble your way to the top, Andorra really does have it all. Climb to the peak of Coma Pedrosa at 2,943m, the highest peak in Andorra in the Valls del Comspedrosa protected Nature Park to get amazing views. Or hike your way to the central massive area high above Encamp and Canillo to tackle the upper boulders of Alt de Griu above the lower forest. Earn great 360 degree views and then find remote lakes to dip a toe or jump right in to cool yourself from the hot and dusty trails. Alternatively, trek to one of several high mountain huts to sample the delights of a table service restaurant and lodging. Visit the Huts at Sorteny Nature Park or Jucla, Andorra’s largest lake, to break up a few days hiking whether on the borders or central mountain areas. You will be spoilt for choice, wish you had more days and then settle for your favourite hiking before vowing to return to the ones that got away!
