Routes afoot for Encamp
Under the snow that covers the slopes and mountains of Grandvalira in winter, lies dormant Andorra’s incredible scenery and rich fauna and flora: an all-involving natural milieu that will make you feel alive and full of energy, surrounded by landscapes so beautiful that they can hardly even be conjured up in dreams.
Many of Andorra’s landscapes have been declared Natural World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, and they are indeed genuinely magnificent enclaves that awaken one’s senses and become forever engraved in your memory, whether you’re accompanied or alone. These remote areas, which cannot be accessed by car, are the perfect place to lose yourself, explore, contemplate the scenery and meditate in silence.
In Encamp we offer a premium mountain guide service for customers who want to arrive on foot and go on outings to discover and get to know the most emblematic landscapes of the Principality of Andorra.
There are outings for beginners and others requiring a more advanced level of physical fitness, as well as the option to climb via ferrata in the Los Isards area in Pas de la Casa or in Grau Roig.
We offer mountain trips of about 3 hours that include the menu of mountain rice in the Refugi Llac dels Pessons restaurant.
Outing to the Estanys de Pessons (Pessons Lakes) (3 hours) + lunch in the Llac dels Pessons restaurant: These outings are adapted to all the different levels of fitness of the customers. They start from the first lake (access by vehicle) and last approximately 3 hours. The excursions end at the Llac dels Pessons restaurant where you can enjoy the mountain rice menu along with the spectacular views of the Pessons Circle.
Price: 1 person: €80 (Supplement of €20 for the second person).
Via ferrata + lunch in the Llac dels Pessons restaurant: Via ferratas are climbing routes located in rocky walls equipped with specific elements (cables, ladders, etc.) to guarantee the safety of the users. It is a different way of getting to know the mountains, with special sensations and more adrenaline given the verticality of the routes that we may encounter. The via ferrata in the area are: Via ferrata dels Isards, Pic Negre and Bony d’Envalira. However, they do require a more advanced technical level. You can also round these off with the mountain rice menu at the Refugi Llac dels Pessons restaurant.
Price: 1 person: €100 (Supplement of €50 for the second person).
