- Trekking in Andorra “When it comes to flora and fauna, the valleys in the Coma Pedrosa park are considered to be in the most natural part of Andorra. The park boasts exceptional nature. One can make many treks in the valleys and one also finds the only kept mountain hut in Andorra (2h20 from Arinsal, climb: 692 m). The two other huts are not kept but are open all the year and are free. The objective of the park which is entirely in the parish of la Massana, is to preserve the ecological wealth of the flora and typical fauna all whilst upkeeping the traditional activities of the area. The park is located in the Western part of the Principality and surrounds the peak of Coma Pedrosa, the highest mountain of the country (2? 942m, 4h30 from Arinsal, climb: 1?370m!). The principal interest of the park is the diversity of the mountain ecosystems. One can find a great quantity of animals and endemic flowers of the area. In spite of his reduced size, one can find 77% of the species of Andorran fauna and 48% of the flora even though the park only covers 4% of the country. Human acitivity, such as farming, hunting, fishing, the gathering of mushrooms or plants in the park is strictly controlled.” A number of walks are available
