Description

Andorra is an independent municipality located between France and Spain. It is a beautiful place, with incomparable landscapes and fantastic places such as Vall del Riu and Cap d’Entor. However, it is during winter, that this incredible place gets covered with a fresh layer of snow, turning it into a winter paradise.

We will dedicate the first day of our trip to explore the dazzling Vall del Riu. Visiting this mesmerizing valley will give us the opportunity to stay away from the ski crowds. So we’ll get to enjoy a truly unique peaceful moment of contemplation, hard to get otherwise.

Once we take in all the beauty of Vall del Riu, we will venture across black pine forests, to later head to the village of Rasol. It is here that we will arrive at our shelter. And by the end of this day, we would have crossed more than 9 kilometers of distance.

Then, on our second and final day, we’ll explore the valley of Ranson and reach the summit of Cap d’Entor. This majestic peak offers the best environment to practice with our snowshoes. So by the end of the day and the more than 7 kilometers that we’ll cover, you will feel like an expert.

Please note that due to the distances we’ll cover both days, participants must have a good fitness level. Nonetheless, you don’t need to have any previous experience. I’ll teach you how to use the snowshoes, and we’ll have plenty of time to practice with them.

So don’t miss out on any of the fun. Request to book this trip today, and get ready to live an unforgettable winter adventure in Andorra.

High Mountain Sports technician (certification from La Pobla de Segur IES) and member of AGAMA (Andorra Mountain Guides Association).

I have been a mountain guide since 2004. I started out as a mountain leader and now I am a mountain guide.
I love the mountain in general, but what I prefer is climbing. I have traveled to many countries around the world to climb: Morocco, Jordan, United States and Greece.
With customers, I really like mountain skiing, climbing peaks and skiing in good snow!
I hope to share the mountain with you, convey my passion and have fun with your company!
