With a stage that crosses the 3 valleys of Andorra we enter the Central Pyrenees, surrounded by peaks that exceed 3000 m.
We climb the highest mountain in Andorra, Comapedrosa (2950 m) and continue our journey through the Pyrenees of Lleida passing the first large lake area and the ridges of Roca Cigalera and Campirme.
We arrive at the Aigüestortes National Park which protects the most important alpine lake area in Europe and we cross from east to west to reach the Vall de Boi. Here we can visit the Romanesque church Sant Climent (a world heritage site), before touring the two highest massifs in the Pyrenees, Maladeta and Posets. We climb the Pic de Vallhiberna (3050) with a fantastic view of the Aneto (3404 m).
Our crossing ends at the Ordesa National Park. We spend the night at the Góriz refuge at the foot of Mont Perdut. The last stage takes us through the Ordesa Canyon, the most important in Europe.
