The parish of Canillo wants to help you to get to know and understand our mountains. We invite you to discover our natural heritage through two eco-tourism routes with qualified professional guides. 

These two routes are in the Vall d’Incles, the most impressive glacier valley in the Principality of Andorra, and in the Ransol Valley, also known as the Ransol pass.


This route is dominated by woods of black pine with patches of birch, poplar and salt marsh. Before reaching the hut at Siscaró (2,145 m.), the woods disappear and the environment becomes rocky and herbaceous. 

In the first part of the route, the woods of black pine give a good opportunity to hear or see the goldcrest, Europe’s smallest bird. Among mammals, there are squirrels and roe-deer. From the pools at Siscaró you may glimpse a marmot on the scree.

Difficulty: easy


This valley is dominated by woods of black pine and juniper. Ling, dwarf rhododendron and bilberries form part of the undergrowth cover. In the sunnier spots, brooms are growing. Among the flowers, there are all kinds of alpine species, such as gentians, yellow Turk’s cap lily, yarrow and yellow bedstraw, and many others. 

Various mammal species can be found at the Ransol pass, such as wild boar, roe-deer, chamois, sable, hare and, of course, the marmot. There are also many birds; the goshawk, coal tit, crested tit, goldcrest, chaffinch, etc.
