Daytripping from Barcelona: Hiking Rec del Solà in Andorra

Andorra la Vella, Rec del Solà 1

Contrary to a few negative reviews on daytripping to Andorra, more specifically Andorra la Vella, capital of the Principality of Andorra, I personally felt that it was totally worth it. The highlights for me were the view enroute from Barcelona, hiking Rec del Solà and getting a super cheap percolator there (in comparison to prices in Asia).

We started the hike from the entrance along Carrer Les Canals which can be easily located with the help of Google Maps.

Slight elevation at the start and thereafter, mostly flat on a very well establish path.

Seriously awesome views on a sunny day.

There are a number of paths and exits along the way. Unfortunately due to the time constraint of a day trip and being irrationally afraid of the dark, we ended our walk where the established path ended and headed back down to the city.
