Andorra is a destination you can enjoy every day of the year. With the arrival of spring, the snow melts, leaving the mountains of Andorra uncovered. This allows us to enjoy them by hiking, trail running, climbing or even via ferrata.
If you are a nature lover, keep reading our Kabano blog and you will discover the highest points and mountains in Grandvalira and Andorra so you can prepare for your next adventure.
Which are the Highest Mountains and Points in Andorra?
Pic de Coma Pedrosa
The mountain of Coma Pedrosa is the highest mountain in Andorra and one of the most spectacular. It has an altitude of 2,946 metres. It is considered a Natural Park and its lakes and ponds make it an idyllic place.
Arinsal is the nearest village from where several hiking routes start. If we pass Arinsal, we arrive at Prats Sobirans where we will find the free Comapedrosa car park.
In July the Skyrace and the Ultra de Comapedrosa are held on this mountain. The Skyrace is a 21km race with almost 2300m of vertical drop, while the Ultra is a 50km race with 3800m of vertical drop.
Pic de l’Estanyó
The mountain of l’Estanyó is the sixth highest mountain in Andorra with an altitude of 2,912 metres. On this mountain, we can also find lakes of glacial origin and discover the many species of flora and fauna that live at such an altitude.
El Serrat is the closest village to the peak and lake of l’Estanyó. In Canya de la Rabassa there is a free parking area as well as an area equipped with barbecues and picnic tables to enjoy an outdoor meal.
As a highlight, on any of the hiking routes, we will find a Botanical Garden that we can visit and learn about more than 700 species of plants and flowers that only find in the Pyrenees!
The peak of Medacorba is the fifth highest mountain in Andorra with an altitude of 2,913 metres. It is also known as the mountain of the three frontiers due to its location on the border between France, Andorra and Spain.
It is one of the most spectacular peaks in the Pyrenees. From the highest point we have unique panoramic views and can even clearly see the Pica d’Estats.
Its proximity to the Comapedrosa peak means that the more adventurous can do a circular Medacorba – Comapedrosa hiking route, and visit two of the most emblematic mountains with the best views in Andorra on the same route.
This excursion can be done in one day, but if you have more time we recommend you stay overnight at the Estanys Forcats hut and enjoy the route for longer.
As with Comapedrosa, the nearest town is Arinsal, so you can park in the same free car park mentioned in the first section.
