Description

Located on the southern slope of the Pyrenees, Andorra experiences fantastic snow during winters. Join me to discover the stunning beauty of these Andorran mountains on this 6-day snowshoeing trip. We will walk inches deep in powder snow under the bright sun on this fun trip!

The tour can be enjoyed with your complete family and we can further customize it based on your preferences. And, did you know Caldea, the largest spa in Europe is also there in the area? What a perfect way would it be to unwind after a long day!

To warm-up, we will start from the Ordino pass and advance towards the mountain of Bony de les Neres (2211m). The trail leads through a forest offering stunning views. And if you are lucky, you might as well spot a few mouflons or capercaillies on the way!

The next day, we will set out towards the plateaus of Rabassa. The landscape will become softer and the snowy expanses would seem neverending. It will be a sight like no other!

Thereafter, we will explore the Incles Valley and the spectacular Llac dels Pessons. It will be a delight to cross so many streams and hamlets on the way in so scenic a setting. The trail will lead onto the Port of Incles from where you will get to appreciate the frozen lakes of Fontargent. The lakes at Pessons, also frozen are surrounded by needle-like peaks which look simply outstanding.

Finally, we will spend the last morning visiting the Sorteny Nature Reserve. It will be such an enriching experience to explore the wildlife along with enjoying snowy vistas.

So, what are you waiting for? Book now to go on this enjoyable snowshoeing trip in the Andorran mountains with me. You sure won’t regret it. Also, check out my guided hiking tour in Andorra if looking for some more adventures.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
