Description

I have the wonderful privilege of introducing the spectacular Andorran Pyrenees mountains. This often overlooked region provides some of the best ski touring conditions anywhere!

I am offering you 5 days of flexible ski touring in deep powder snow and wild terrain that is just begging for exploration.

This country is full of hooked pines, expansive fields, frozen lakes and endless peaks to access. This Pyrenees adventure will not disappoint!

I am happy to tailor the trip to your ski touring skills, experience and preferences. I know the region intimately and can also adapt the route to the local weather conditions as they arise.

Our rough itinerary will look like this; Day 1 we’ll meet, go over safety and avalanche awarness and then summit Cap dels Isards at 2469m.

The next two days we will ascend Mount Forn at 2701m and Serrera peak at 2914m, which is one of the highest in Andorra. Both days will provide wonderful skiing and stunning views over the expansive landscape.

Day 4 will see us climb to the peak of the majestic Font Blanca at 2908m, whilst on day 5 we will have the pleasure of summiting the Coume de Varilhes peak at 2758m. There are stunning views from here that overlook the seperation of two valleys.

It’s best that you have some ski touring experience to join this trip, however I can adapt the trip to your physical and technical level.

If these 5 days of ski touring in the breathtaking beauty of the Andorran Pyrenees in virgin powder snows has you excited, then sign up now and I’ll be waiting to share this natural wonder with you!
