Description

Madriu-Perafita-Claror is a glacial valley in southeastern Andorra. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004 under the category of “cultural landscape”. Join me on this fun half day hiking trip and explore this beautiful place with me!

This glacial valley, which covers an area of 4,247 ha, features high open pastures, imposing cliffs and leafy forests. It is surrounded by huge mountain peaks and can only be reached through hiking trails.  Additionally, it is also popular for its rare wildlife including chamois, roe deer, wild boars and foxes, among others. Furthermore, the Madriu offers a perspective of how local inhabitants have used its natural resources for over 700 years. We will find dwellings, field terraces, tracks, and ironwork remains. Moreover, its old communal land-ownership system reflects the persistence of pastoralism and a strong mountain culture. 

This tour is suitable for family groups. Prior hiking experience is not necessary. Although we usually walk 10km (2 or 3 hours), we will adapt the outing depending on your wishes. Therefore, we will make sure that everyone enjoys the excursion!

So, if you are up for a stunning hike around the Madriu Valley in Andorra, please contact me. Let me guide you through this unique natural and cultural spot!

I also have other family hiking adventures in the area. Take a look at my trips in Pessons Glacier Circus and Sorteny National Park.

Please bring mountain shoes, 20/35 l. backpack, water, snacks and warm and waterproof clothing. We also recommend poles, sunglasses, hat and sunscreen.
