ANDORRA & the SOUTHERN PYRENEES - 2 days biking

These tours are suitable for those wanting a less competitive style of riding, more green-laning; having time to stop and look at the amazing scenery; and enjoy wonderful long lazy lunches in one of the many small restaurants we have found hidden in mountain valleys and small villages.

From Monday to Friday we are offering 2, 3 or 5 day biking tours, and YOU CAN NOW PICK WHICH DAYS OF THE WEEK YOU WOULD LIKE TO BIKE. 

Non-biker friends and family are very welcome as there are many activities to do during the day in and around Ordino. At least twice during the week, we will arrange to meet up with the bikers for lunch.

Just 6 bikers per tour plus John guiding, so don’t take too long to make your decision!

We are now offering you the chance to BRING YOUR OWN BIKE for the tour. Suitable for large trailies and off-road bikes.

 As usual, prompt answers to any of your questions are just a click away!


,,Day #1
 



Arrival at Barcelona airport you will then take the transfer service to our hotel in Ordino. (Service every 2 hours until 22.00 hours.)

ANDORRA and the SOUTHERN PYRENEES
,,Day #2

 


Leave Andorra through the old village of Pal, with it’s 11th century Romanic church.  Passing the pretty ski slopes of Pal Ski Resort cut through the trees, we drive on over the Port de Cabus at 2300m into Spain. Offroad for the next 20 kms from the Port down to Alins where we stop for a mid morning coffee and snack in a local café. En route we pass through the ancient village of Tor and then follow the river through a very picturesque gorge area. This was a notorious area in the past for being a major smuggler’s route for tobacco from Andorra to Spain.

After our coffee stop, we have a few kms on asphalt and then we turn offroad again and wind our way up through forests, across streams until we get to the popular area of St Joan de l’Erm, both for cross country ski-ing in the winter and summer activities. Slow down here as people come for BBQs and to walk around.


From here we make a loop offroad for about 50kms which takes us all the way up to Port Aine ski area at over 2000m with fantastic views across the surrounding mountains. We will stop half-way and have lunch in an old “Refugi” restaurant built over 100 years ago down in a valley by a stream.

This is the restaurant where after eating a substantial starter of soup, sauteed peas with ham, lentils or salad, we are then presented with our selection of grilled meat done on local slates accompanied by home made crisps! After lunch we sit outside in the sun eating our desserts and drinking coffees enjoying the total peace and quiet before jumping on our bikes and setting off for the afternoon’s 80kms of biking – winding our way through the National forests again. We drive back into Andorra via Os de Civis, another very pretty old village built up a hill with the unusual situation of being in Spain but only accessible by road through Andorra. The final 20kms back to Ordino will take us through Andorra la Vella’s town center.
