Mirador del Roc del Quer

Reviewed By AlpineOwls - Wiltshire, United Kingdom

We saw this from Canillo so had to get to the top and walk out to this viewing platform. Plenty of parking (free as we found most of Andorra to be) and then we walked out to this amazing viewing point and discovered this was also totally free! A must if you ate in the area. You will find it if you drive along the pass from Ordino to Canillo.

Tristaina Lake Trail

Reviewed By hongching - Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

We decided to drive to another city, Ordino from Soldeu (where we checked in) in order to avoid the Tour de France that took place on that day. There are two options to get onto the lakes, one from the ski station area, and another one which is about 100m down the road. We took the latter option to avoid the 'crowd' but ended up this is the much steeper trail despite shorter, which I would not recommend for those with children. Nonetheless, the views on the top which 3 lakes with cascading streams are just amazing. Highly recommended!

Lagos de Tristania

Reviewed By scottplume - Perth, Australia

We crossed the pass from France into Andorre and passed these lakes on our way down to El Serrat. These lakes are a great place to relax on a hot day and for the adventurous it's a great place for a swim. To make a circle from Arcalis it might take a good few hours but certainly worth it. All the trails are marked with sign posts and its very easy to find your way around.

Soldeu - El Tarter

A popular ski resort with basic accommodations and an excellent ski school.

Reviewed By Andy M - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Our sixth year in a row to this fantastic resort. The ski area which is known as Grandvilara is superb, the conditions we have just had Jan 2018, were brilliant. I would recommend Soldeu to anyone thinking of a ski holiday there is ample levels for everyone, beginners through to advanced. A great place.

Grandvalira Ski Resort

The largest ski area in the Pyrenees (210km of runs)

Reviewed By jt2703 - Manchester, United Kingdom

Just back from Soldeu & the pistes here are fantastic, long & wide..perfect for us snowboarders but also for our friends that are skiers.
There are ski lockers here just before you get the gondola so no need for carrying all your kit. They cost 55 euros for 6 days but hold up to 5 lots of boards/skis/boots.
I would definitely recommend this resort, don't let the 3 hour transfer from Barcelona put you off!

Valle de Incles

Reviewed By scottplume - Perth, Australia

Incles Valley is an amazing spot to take a hike. Once you leave the valley the views are incredible. There is no need to take much water as the path follows along the river and you can easily drink the water without worrying as it is from snow melt. Take your camera and just enjoy the nature.

Sant Joan de Caselles

The building dates from the 11th-12th century and follows the architectural style of other Andorran Romanesque churches: it has a rectangular single nave with wooden ceiling, a semi-circular apse andLombard-style belfry. It conserves two archways probably built in the16th and 17th centuries.The interior has remains of a 12th century Romanesque stucco crucifix surrounded by a mural showing the crucifixion with Longinus andStephanon accompanied by the Sun and Moon. Behind the altar grillis a highly artistic 16th century altarpiece showing Italian and German Renaissance influence with scenes from the life and martyrdomof Saint John, author of the book of Revelations and patron saint ofthe church.

Reviewed By Diana B - Iasi, Romania

I definitely recommend visiting this 12th century church, which is a precious little gem on the way to Andorra la Vella, in Canillo (Andorra). It was closed when we stopped by, but still we could see it from outside, and we stayed a while on the porch, feeling the quietness and the intimacy of this ancient place.

Engolasters Lake-Les Pardines Path

Reviewed By VeryHungryWalker - Faringdon, United Kingdom

An easy walk for those of most abilities. Walked with a very determined and fit 82 year old who made it up, beyond and back down. Nice and shady in the heat but you lose the views. Several restaurants around the lake make a lovely welcome respite.

Tobotronc

Reviewed By DarrenHenman - Bedfordshire, England

We visited the Naturlandia park in Andorra, just to visit this Alpine Coaster after hearing it was one of the longest in the world, and it was well worth it.
Everything about this alpine coaster is impressive.
At 5.30 km long (including the climb) it is the longest in the world, takes around 12 minutes to climb up using 4 lift hills!, and so long as you don't break or have to slow down because of slower riders in front of you then it is 5 minutes of excellent downhill speed. An average speed of close to 40Km/Hr.
Although the ride has been open since 2007, it is still reported amongst a lot of websites that the alpine coaster in Imst is the longest at 3.50 Km. Perhaps the authors of online articles haven't heard of Andorra, or perhaps its because the Andorrans don't like to brag about these things since they come from the 17th smallest country in the world by land area? Even the person operating the ride wasn't sure if this was the longest or not!
Either way if you like coasters and alpine coasters in particular then you will want to go on this.
And if you want to go as fast as possible make sure you tell the man at the top who releases the car, so that you can have the maximum amount of time between you and the car in front so you don't get slowed down.
Stay safe and enjoy the ride.
(I am not sure if you can ride Tobotronc on its own or have to buy a ticket for the Naturlandia park as we brought our ticket to include Naturlandia. Either way its worth it.

Santuario de Meritxell

Reviewed By Doctorfancy - Kingston-upon-Hull, United Kingdom

Interesting history about the church. Although I couldn't understand it because it was written in Catalan. Lovely place but not much there. It's not easy to get to on public transport, however it's free to look around. You can walk from here to Canillo from the back of the church, in understand its a lovely 2-3 hour walk. There's no direct walk on the main road.
