Normally La Purito is celebrated on the first Sunday of August, but in 2020 and 2021, it has unfortunately been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
La Purito follows the same route as the legendary mountain queen stage of La Vuelta 2015 (spanish professional cycling tour), the eleventh stage, considered by many to be the toughest stage of La Vuelta. That year Purito finished it, but the victory of the stage was taken by Mikel Landa.

Hiking Trails in Andorra, sorted by difficulty and time

From Mountain Hostel Tarter we recommend you our favorite hikes. Hiking trails in Andorra by difficulty and by time, near Mountain Hostel Tarter, which start and end at Mountain Hostel Tarter.

Easy hiking trails in Andorra, Incles Valley and Gall de Bosc trail:

Ideal to walk with kids, or for a light run, stroll for a while with no excess. We recommend 2 walks.

The first one is the easy Incles Valley walk, with a trail which includes explanatory signs about flora, fauna, and the Incles Valley’s biodiversity, but also about the typical mountain constructions you may find around the area.

The second one is the Gall de Bosc path (aka the Chicken Run), which goes from Soldeu to Canillo. A very entertaining path, with a Tibet style bridge, and you may even be lucky to see the Gall de Bosc, as wild and protected species of bird, in danger of extinction, which not many get to see.

Incles Valley is only 10 minutes away from Mountain Hostel Tarter, and you can join into the Gall de Bosc path in Tarter, 5 minutes away from Mountain Hostel Tarter.

Medium hiking trails in Andorra, half a day, or a mellow all day out on the Andorra’s mountains:

  • The 5 lakes route, in Incles Valley (Andorra): A Circular hike, starting from Mountain Hostel Tarter towards Entor, continuing to Querol Lake, then the Salamander Lakes, Cabana Sorda Lake, Anrodat Lake, and finally Isla Lake. If anyone wants more (Quite a lot more!!), you can carry on to Fontargent Lake (France), go up the Collada de Juclar and down to Juclar Lakes, and then back down to Incles valley and back to Mountain Hostel Tarter.
  • For the bravest, and if you haven’t got vertigo, why not hike up to Escobes Peak, above the Juclar Lakes, also accessible from the end of Incles Valley.
  • For more aerial views, start from the Port d’Envalira towards Maia Peak, and hike the crests down to Siscaró Lakes, and Incles Valley.
