Panoramic Tour in Ordino Arcalís

The Tristaina cable car is one of the attractions of Ordino Arcalís in summer. The arrival area of the gondola, called "Coma d'Arcalís", is the starting point for one of the most emblematic excursions, the Tristaina Lakes. From the same point you can also access the new Tristaina Sundial Lookout. All you have to do is follow the route with the Creussans chairlift and walk a few metres to the Peyreguils Peak. We assure you that the reward is extraordinary.

With an investment costing around 6 million euros, this state-of-the-art installation can carry up to 1,000 people an hour. It has 20 cars, which can be increased to 31, raising the capacity to 1,600 people an hour. Each car seats 10 people.

Although the cable car is named after the Tristaina peak and glacial cirque, it doesn't actually reach this zone, which remains an unspoilt mountain area, and instead goes to La Coma de Arcalís.

The Tristaina glaciar

The Tristania glacier is a natural marvel formed by three lakes, Estany Primer, Estany del Mig and Estany de Més Amunt, watched over by El Pic de Tristania mountain which reaches a height of 2,878 metres. This is one of Andorra's must-do trips, not only because of its beauty but also because it is suitable for all levels and all the family.

The Tristaina glacial cirque hiking trail is a mountain route that takes around three hours, covering a distance of 4.5 km, with a total climb of 210 m.

The route starts in the La Coma sector, which can be reached by the Tristaina cable car. It is ideal for families with kids aged over 4 and is a great way for them to discover the mountain and its setting. Comfortable clothing and footwear are recommended.

On the trail you'll find descriptive panels with information on the geographical features, vegetation, flora and fauna in the area.
