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.
