“Varied walking but steep”

Percanela-Les Fonts-Pla de l'Estany Trail
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Like nearly all the walks around Arinsal, lots of steep climbing in store for you, but lots of variety and plenty of lovely views.

Thank Mouxsie

This walk takes you into high mountain scenery, culminating in the flat grassy floorof an immense corrie, surrounded by spectacular crags.
The lake itself is almost dried up in August, but makes a perfect natural stop for a peaceful picnic lunch while you take in the grandeur of the surrounding peaks, and wallow in the loneliness.
The climb to the lake area begins in the village of Arinsal, and climbs steeply through the forest for almost 600m ascent, the feeling of achievement is quite something when you reach the corrie on a hot summers day.
Return to Arinsal via the Bordes dels Prats Nous for some excellent views of Coma Pedrosa, and Arinsal.
The round trip took us five and a half hours, was done on our first day in Arinsal, and set us up for a wonderful weeks holiday.
On your return to the village I would recommend relaxing with a refreshing drink at Status Quo, where you can generally find more like minded people to swap tales with, and get tips for your stay in Arinsal.
This walk is one of many based on Arinsal, and has just about everything you could hope for, if there is a down side it is the climbing at the beginning, but once you reach the Corrie you know it is all downhill. We had the services of a local guide, through Inghams, and she really made the walk worthwhile with her local knowledge, although British, she has lived in Andorra over 20 years.
Good walking boots, plenty of water, a picnic lunch, and waterproofs (just in case ) are necessary on this walk, and a camera is a must have.
Definitely an all day event !
