Full description
Your trek to the Vinciguerra Glaciar begins with a morning transfer from your hotel to the Valley of Andorra. Leave the vehicle behind and challenge the wet and slippery ground as you follow a meandering river that cuts across peat bogs that line the valley.    Arrive at the forest and prepare for an initially demanding ascent that becomes easier once reaching the treeline some 600-meters above sea level. Once above the treeline have views of the surrounding mountain range's craggy peaks that enclose the valley. Continue along a stream that feeds from a glacial lagoon and arrive at the Vinciguerra Glaciar only a few dozen meters ahead.  During your trek enjoy a boxed lunch with drinks. Your arrival time back at your hotel is approximately 4:30 PM.

The tour was great, hicking, trecking, it was awesome all the way. The walk starts with a great landscape, the forest is also amazing but the very best part is getting to the top. The view, together with the feeling you made it is worth the effort. Our guide, Lucia, was an awesome walking companion, she explained us a lot about the mountain and it’s history, about flora and about the glacier. She was funny and helped us completely. A huge thank to her, without her contribute it might not be as great as it has been!

the place is spectacular, but we did not walk through the glacier. We only reached the edge of the lagoon of the icebergs. there is a lot of mud and it is a difficult trail without the proper shoes.
