We crossed the pass from France into Andorre and passed these lakes on our way down to El Serrat. These lakes are a great place to relax on a hot day and for the adventurous it's a great place for a swim. To make a circle from Arcalis it might take a good few hours but certainly worth it. All the trails are marked with sign posts and its very easy to find your way around.

We decided to drive to another city, Ordino from Soldeu (where we checked in) in order to avoid the Tour de France that took place on that day. There are two options to get onto the lakes, one from the ski station area, and another one which is about 100m down the road. We took the latter option to avoid the 'crowd' but ended up this is the much steeper trail despite shorter, which I would not recommend for those with children. Nonetheless, the views on the top which 3 lakes with cascading streams are just amazing. Highly recommended!

We saw this from Canillo so had to get to the top and walk out to this viewing platform. Plenty of parking (free as we found most of Andorra to be) and then we walked out to this amazing viewing point and discovered this was also totally free! A must if you ate in the area. You will find it if you drive along the pass from Ordino to Canillo.

The building dates from the 11th-12th century and follows the architectural style of other Andorran Romanesque churches: it has a rectangular single nave with wooden ceiling, a semi-circular apse andLombard-style belfry. It conserves two archways probably built in the16th and 17th centuries.The interior has remains of a 12th century Romanesque stucco crucifix surrounded by a mural showing the crucifixion with Longinus andStephanon accompanied by the Sun and Moon. Behind the altar grillis a highly artistic 16th century altarpiece showing Italian and German Renaissance influence with scenes from the life and martyrdomof Saint John, author of the book of Revelations and patron saint ofthe church.
I definitely recommend visiting this 12th century church, which is a precious little gem on the way to Andorra la Vella, in Canillo (Andorra). It was closed when we stopped by, but still we could see it from outside, and we stayed a while on the porch, feeling the quietness and the intimacy of this ancient place.

Interesting history about the church. Although I couldn't understand it because it was written in Catalan. Lovely place but not much there. It's not easy to get to on public transport, however it's free to look around. You can walk from here to Canillo from the back of the church, in understand its a lovely 2-3 hour walk. There's no direct walk on the main road.

Open from 15 July to 15 September. A 12th century Romanesque church with additions from the 17th and18th centuries. It preserves mural paintings by the masterartist of La Cortinada from the end of the 12th century.The church was extended in the Baroque period: the direction of thenave was changed and the new high altar was decorated with a 17thcentury polychrome wood altarpiece dedicated to the church's patronsaint. The side chapels also house Baroque altarpieces dedicated tothe Virgin Mary, Saint Anthony the Great and Our Lady of the Roses.The wrought iron rails, 17th century wooden furniture and the carillonor confessional box are other important features of the church. Othercivil architecture features to be seen near the church include the CalPal millstone and sawmill - an example of small traditional industry and the ancestral seat of Cal Pal with its unique white dovecot.
This church combines history and scenery. The valley in which it is located is very scenic, but its best asset is its history and significance. It dates back to the thirteenth century and in fact a portion of the old church is still intact. The rest was built in later eras. It is so revered by Andorrans that many weddings are held in it to this date.

An easy walk for those of most abilities. Walked with a very determined and fit 82 year old who made it up, beyond and back down. Nice and shady in the heat but you lose the views. Several restaurants around the lake make a lovely welcome respite.

A popular ski resort with basic accommodations and an excellent ski school.
Our sixth year in a row to this fantastic resort. The ski area which is known as Grandvilara is superb, the conditions we have just had Jan 2018, were brilliant. I would recommend Soldeu to anyone thinking of a ski holiday there is ample levels for everyone, beginners through to advanced. A great place.

The largest ski area in the Pyrenees (210km of runs)
Just back from Soldeu & the pistes here are fantastic, long & wide..perfect for us snowboarders but also for our friends that are skiers.
There are ski lockers here just before you get the gondola so no need for carrying all your kit. They cost 55 euros for 6 days but hold up to 5 lots of boards/skis/boots.
I would definitely recommend this resort, don't let the 3 hour transfer from Barcelona put you off!

Having read about this attraction it became a must visit place. Just to walk out, from the safety of the mountain side into a projecting platform and looking through the glass floor (in parts) to the village below, was quite an experience. A must visit place.
