We recommend an ascent up the Coll D’Ordino. This climb sits at 1980m and was featured on Stage 11 of the 2015 Vuelta a España. Descend 10km down to the small village or Ordino for a drink before riding the La Coma D’Arcalis at 2240m). Tom Dumoulin won Stage 9 of the 2016 Tour de France on this climb so you will be riding on famous roads. Pass through the village of Cortinada before descending back to La Massana where you can rest up and enjoy a meal in the hotel or at one of the local restaurants.
Today offers a long climb with 17km of ascent up the Coll de la Rabassa at 2037m.
Head down to Juberri before taking on the Beixalis pass for 8.7km at 600m. You’ll then end the day with a decent ton the road from Aldosa back to your hotel in La Massana.
We recommend a punchy day today where you can climb 1800m over just 60km. Ride through the village of Erts before climbing to the Arinsal Ski Station at 1900m for 7km. Near the top of the hill is the Comapedrosa peak of 2942m, the highest in Andorra. The climb is short but very demanding.
Head back into Erts where you will begin the ascent to Coll de Cabus at 2302m. This 15km climb is one of the most scenic routes in Andorra. Today’s ride will be one of the most picturesque so enjoy the views.
Today is one of the most impressive cycling routes in Andorra. The Tour de France has passed over Port D’Envalira a total of 9 times since 1964, the most recent coming in 2016 where Peter Sagan was narrowly beaten to the finish by Michael Matthews.
Enjoy a relaxed morning and a leisurely breakfast in the hotel before transferring back to the airport for your journey home.
Famous cols, idyllic valley rides as well and beautiful scenery everywhere you turn, the Pyrenees offers the perfect playground for a cycling holiday. Andorran resident and BMC Racing Team member, Simon Gerrans, moved here from Monaco and said: “it’s a fantastic place to live quietly with a family and train with a lot of mountains”.
The principality between Spain and France boasts a unique, tranquil lifestyle. This, contrasted with the magnificence of the climbs, makes Andorra the perfect cycling holiday destination.
