Andorra: Hiking from Soldeu to Candillo
Get there: If you’ve got a car, Soldeu is the next major settlement past Candillo and isn’t hard to Google maps. Clear maps are also available from the tourist information centre in Placa Sant Anna, Escaldes-Engordany. For those without wheels, The Escaldes-Engordany (EE) public bus services runs through Candillo and Soldeu from Placa Sant Anna in Escaldes-Engordany. Look for the L3 Line. A one-way trip sets you back €1.80.
Cost: The track is open free of charge.
The walking track between Canillo and Soldeu is an excellent trail for amateurs who want all of the views with only moderate strain. Our tip? Catch the bus to Soldeu (line L3, €1.80) and start the track from there, as you’ll have less of an incline to deal with coming from this direction. The beginning of the track is a couple of minutes down the road from the tourist information centre in Soldeu and the lovely staff there will be happy to point you in the right direction. Once you find it, follow the red coqs and horse shit and you’ll know you’re on the right track. The track is a loop so you’ll pop out back in the centre of Candillo (convenient). From Candillo, it’s easy to catch a bus back to whichever little Andorran town you came from.
