A pleasant short walk easily accessible with nice views over the city. Ask at the tourist information if you can't find it. By no means a "Must do" but if you are looking for a break from skiing or shopping a good way to spend some time

Only being in Andorra for a few hours, this looked like the best walk available and it was excellent. There is a stiff climb out of the city, up steps and then a steep road until you gain the irrigation canal, but from there it is a most pleasant, flat walk until you decide to descend to the historic city....

After a hike up several flights of stone stairs, we got to the canal trail. The trail itself is a nice walk and it is interesting to see that the canal is in use today by residents to water their vegetables. There were a number of runners, people walking their dogs, and tourists on the trail but it was not... More

Pleasant walk offering impressive views over Andorra La Vella that follows the narrow irrigation channel (it's not a canal in the conventional sense of the word) used by residents living higher up to water their plants/vegetables etc. I was expecting a longer walk to be honest but you can do it easily in 30 minutes or so, ending up in...

Apart from drinking and eating, this is by far the best thing to do in Andorra la Vella. It's a lovely walk and the hardest bit about it is actually finding it. There are various pathways up to the Rec del Sola, but let me give you the one that we took. Using your free hotel or Tourist Info Centre... More

Great trail well put together with stunning views over Andorra. Do as much of it as you can. Some bits closed off for us when we went which was unfortunate. It's VERY steep in places....fitness required really.

Andorra la Vella is a cute little mountain town, and hiking the irrigation canal was a great way to see it. Like any mountain town, the streets aren't exactly on a grid, so we had to print out a map to find our way there. Once there, it was a pleasant walk (though it is a bit narrow, and lots... More

The Tourist Information Centre gave us direction to this trail. At my age I was not sure I could do it. However, the climb via the rustic step trails to the top was worth it. Not just glorious views over the city, but the mountain view are breathtaking. The walk along the trail once on the top is really worth... More
