Walk! Andorra Specification & Contents
Heres something special for people with ambitions to high altitude walking; Andorra. Spectacular in the extreme was our thought when looking through Charles digital images taken en-route as he and Jeanette trek all over this Pyrenean Principality. If youre up for high mountain adventures during the summer then Andorra is your first choice.
Just read through Charles Davis introduction and inspirational walk descriptions, and youll be hooked. Routes include over-nighting in high altitude refuges (a first in a DWG guide book), as well as more conventional day walking. When you see these mountains, you immediately understand the reluctance to return to the valley floor, only to climb back up the next morning! Sufficient to say this is the high altitude, high energy end of walking adventure. If high mountain tops stir the challenge in you, now you know where to head for this summer.
Surprisingly, given this Pyrenean Principality's mountainous nature, there are some easy and moderately rated walks; some taking advantage of 'luxury ascents' using the ski-lifts.
In addition to Charles usual high standard of inspirational walk descriptions, Walk! Andorra contains extensive background information for the independent traveler.
