VIDEO: Hiking in the Pyrenees

OK, a truth with some modifications. Andorra la Vella is in the Pyrenees. Rec del Solà is a nature trail on the hillside above the city. Ergo, I’ve hiked the Pyrenees 😉 In wanting to find a spot that would provide an excellent view of the city and the mountains around, I thought this would be the solution. And it was. Getting to this a little over 2 km long pathway, entails a steep climb, up some staircases, unless you call a taxi. But when you get to the top, it is all flat, cobblestoned, with benches here and there to take a load off. Even though you’re pretty high up, you are passing houses and apartment complexes both below and above. It is impressive how buildings have been built up in the mountainsides. Still there are sections were you get the amazing views you came for. If you want to explore more, you can cross the valley to the other side and do Rec de l’Obac, which apparently is more “in the woods”. Both trails are part of Anella Verda, the Green Ring.

  1. Great read!!! Love the hiking tale 🙂 I gave ya a follow. I have a few hiking tales myself you might enjoy, would appreciate the follow back. But otherwise thanks for the tips and story 🙂

  2. I was recently travelling close to the Pyrenees in Aragon but didn’t get to hike the mountains. Would like to visit Andorra one day! #citytripping

    • Andorra is tiny, but there is a good number of small villages outside the capital Andorra la Vella. Post on one of them coming up 🙂 Nice hike considering it’s kind of in the city.

Love to hear your comment :)
