What will we find in this excursion?
Today all three levels will start and finish in Soldeu village, on foot. We won't need any further transport.
Incles valley has become the most visited valley in Andorra, above all in summertime. Of glacier origin, its spaciousness, its aesthetic and its beauty, together with the easy access, drove the authorities to regulate the access during summertime.
The guides will explain different uses and customs, traditionally carried out by men in the valley: cattle, agriculture, fishing, smuggling, etc ...
Surrounding the valley, we will find 10 ponds, 3 mountain refuges different summits, making this area an ideal place for hiking at any level.
Departing from Soldeu village and going across the Obaga Incles forest, all three levels will enjoy the valley with their corresponding programme.
Soldeu - Siscaró Pond - Pas de les Vaques - Soldeu
This mountain circular walk will take us from Soldeu village (1.830m) up to the Pas de les Vaques (2.573m), returning back down to Soldeu. The first part goes across the Incles obaga forest, wich we'll entirely cross, in order to arrive up to the Siscaró pond. This is a subalpine land, where some protected species live, like the wood grouse. At this stage, we'll enjoy a spectacular view over the Incles valley. From the pond, once we've reached the alpine stage, we'll climb a strong slope in order to get to the Pas de les Vaques. After enjoying the viewpoint, we'll get to Soldeu, going down an easy but long descent.
Soldeu - Siscaró Pond - Incles Valley - Soldeu
The first part of the route, up to Siscaró pond, follows the same path as High level does. From the pond onwards, we'll start the descent down to the end of the Incles valley. First, passing by Siscaró mountain refuge, and finally, following a spectacular route, with several waterfalls, along the riverside. Once we get to the end of the valley, the Obac Way, a flat 3 km path, will allow us to go across this beautiful place. We'll finish our day with a short climb up to Soldeu village.
Soldeu - Planell Gran (Great plain) - Incles Valley - Soldeu
We'll leave from Soldeu following a path that goes across the Incles Obaga forest, and, going up circa 200m gradient, we'll get to the Planell Gran (“Big plain”), a place traditionally used for stockbreeding. From this point onwards, always inside a black pines and firs forest, we'll get down to the end of the Incles valley.
