Almost 40% of the territory of Andorra is forest. Make the most of this unique opportunity which our little country offers you.
Enjoy Nature, either with recreational activities or by discovering our flora and fauna.
In summer, the ski stations are converted to offer you many open-air leisure activities, as well as guided itineraries around the locality, enabling you to enjoy the natural landscapes.
Andorra also has three Nature Parks which are well worth visiting, especially in spring, summer and autumn. Each season is tinted with different colours, creating landscapes worthy of being portrayed by the best artists in the history of art. You will take home with you memories of postcard scenery which is difficult to forget.
Vall del Madriu – Perafita – Claror
Since 2004 it has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in the cultural landscape category. This privileged area of Andorra, of glacial origin, occupies 10% of the country’s territory and includes the parishes of Andorra la Vella, Encamp, Escaldes-Engordany and Sant Julià de Lòria.
But, before touring the trails of this valley, we recommend you visit the water interpretation center and the Madriu located in Escaldes-Engordany, where you can learn everything about this area.
