With the help of leading mountain specialists you’ll have the opportunity to get a closer and more entertaining look at the country’s flora and fauna.  Whether you’re with family, friends or your partner, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of excursions at different levels of difficulty and see nature from a fresh perspective.

This safe yet unforgettable experience will enable you to observe a variety of birds, ranging from larger, threatened animals such as the bearded vulture, to the goldcrest, Europe’s smallest bird.  You’ll discover the habitats of mammals such as chamois and marmots, and learn about hundreds of different species of plant, many of which are native to Andorra.  You’ll even be able to try wild fruits such as blackberries, strawberries and raspberries, and a wide variety of mushrooms in autumn.

For all the family:

Family-friendly routes include the Vall de Sorteny route, which features over 800 different types of flower, some of which are exclusive to the Pyrenees; the Ancient Crafts route in Sant Julia de Lòria, where you can observe at first hand the crafts that were practised in the parish’s mountains and forests in times past; and the Madriu-Perafita-Claror route, where you can discover the beauty of a valley that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Additionally, if you’d like to see more wildlife, don’t miss the Circ de Pessons or Vall d’Incles routes or the Vall d’Enclar, where you can observe Andorran chamois in their natural habitat.

Alternatively, if you enjoy a challenge, and if you’re in good shape, try climbing Comapedrosa, the Principality’s highest peak. At a height of 2,942 metres, you’re sure to enjoy spectacular views over the valley!
