It’s time to park your car and get on your bike to make the most of the good weather and ride along mountain paths and mountain passes. If you love two wheels, you’ve come to the right place! Cycling in Andorra has a lot to offer you whether you like cycling on tarmac or on dirt.
Enjoy cycling in Andorra
Summer is for enjoying outdoor activities, nature and the mountains. And what better way to do it than practising sport and cycling in the company of the whole family.
– Road cycling in Andorra
The Principality has no less than 21 mountain passes of different levels with countless routes spread throughout the country. When the good weather arrives, it is very common to see other enthusiasts emulating the riders of the great cycling events by cycling up the mountain passes on road bikes. Els Llacs Mountain Apartments is located in the perfect place to start super interesting routes and just a short distance from the Envalira Pass (2,409 m), the highest pass in the Pyrenees and the stage for the 2021 Tour de France. And best of all, with a bit of luck it won’t be difficult to come across one of the professional cyclists who train regularly in the country. Can you imagine?
– Mountain biking brings you closer to nature
In Andorra you can practise all mountain biking disciplines with your mountain bike on more than 200 kilometres of mountain trails. But also in the Vallnord Bike Park, which hosts the MBT world championships. Enjoy with the whole family, even with small children, as you can choose the route depending on the level of difficulty you are looking for. From spectacular descents to easier and quieter routes that will allow you to get deep into nature.
– Cycle touring with an electric bicycle
For some time now, e-bikes have also been a permanent fixture in Andorra. It’s a fun and enjoyable way to discover Andorra’s most beautiful landscapes and take mountain trails at your own pace. And all this without being extremely demanding, allowing you to enjoy every minute of your cycling trip, even if the gradient is steep.
