Description of the Private Andorra Hiking Tour:
Andorra is a country that offers a great variety of tourism activities, where hiking is the most practiced sport in the principality, impregnating us with nature, discovering incredible places and all the secrets hidden in the mountains. Barcelona Private Tours offers you a wide range of options for hiking tours in Andorra, as there are three natural parks in the country, one in the Sorteny Valley, another in the Comapedrosa Valleys and finally one in the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valleys, a park that obtained the designation of World Heritage Site by Unesco in 2004.
The tour contains high mountain hiking routes that you can choose according to the tastes or needs of your trip. Although it is not necessary to be a great mountaineer to do the mountain routes in Andorra that we are going to recommend below, they do require some experience in the mountains and an adequate physical shape. These proposals are for people who practice sport regularly. And remember: in the high mountains the weather can change suddenly, so it is advisable to always carry something warm and waterproof clothing.
Our private tour starts very early in the morning (time agreed upon in the reservation), you will be picked up by one of our driver guides, who will be in charge of directing you and describing each and every one of the most relevant instances of our tour.
The transfer to our first point will be done in one of our comfortable vehicles or the one you have previously chosen in your reservation.
