The Giants of the 3 Nations takes in 4 of the highest peaks in Andorra, France and Catalonia and is considered one of the more difficult trails in this area of the Pyrenees. The route summits the Comapedrosa peak (2,942m), Pica d'Estats (3,143m), Tristaina peak (2,878m) and the Medacorba (2,914m) which lies at the point Andorra, France and Spain meet.

There are 5 mountain shelters along the route and you will travel through 3 separate national parks along your way. Typically this route begins in El Serrat, Andorra and is carried out over 6 days with a night stay in each of the shelters.

The following links include further information on what makes this such a rewarding challenge:


Planning on making a self-supported attempt on this route this weekend (11/06/2022). Weather is looking questionable so may be done across 2 days while I hunker down in one of the shelter's to let the rain pass.
