General

  • Spectacular mountain site within easy reach of Andorra's ski resorts
  • A short drive from the ancient spa town of Ax-les-Thermes
  • Surrounded by lots of waymarked hiking trails

Andorra skiing, you say? Or sinking into the steamy waters of an ancient spa town? Or having heaps of mountain hiking, possibly a spot of ziplining or – just possibly – pitching up and staying put among these spectacular Pyrenees views?

Oui to all these at Camping Municipal Porte Des Cimes, a remote wildlife haven site set 1,400 metres above sea level between Andorra, the Pyrénées-Orientales and the Haute-Ariège.

You'll find not a jot of noisy activity or entertainment here: this spacious and mighty scenic mountain site is a place of peace for maximum relaxation – well, you'll need to be fully rested to tackle all those ski runs, ziplines and mountain hikes…

A tennis court is to hand for guests who might care to get a little active; if that's very much not your agenda on site-based days, mosey along to the cosy and communal reception area where there are board games and a TV for idle times, and postcards and a postbox so you can keep in touch with those back home. (If you're a modern sort who says Pah to the idea of snail mail, free wifi is around reception too.

So you can sort your eats and drinks, the site has a microwave and coffee machine in reception, and a picnic area and communal barbecues for meals alfresco: the latter option will probably be the one you plump for when you see these splendid mountain views.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely quiet site with good facilities. We only stayed one night as used as a stopover on route to Spain.
    Fairly small and compact and just off the main highway, but suitably distanced so road noise was very minimal.
    Pitches are spacious and level. The Electric Points require the Euro 2 pin adaptor for the UK 3 Pin System.
    Site is heavily into conservation so water is used in a controlled way, which is better for the environment. Staff spoke passable English which was a lot better than our passable French

    Disliked: 

    Pitch area has a slope to negate, this will warm the Clutch on Hill Starts.

    My son and I absolutely loved the location and we had the tent site all to ourselves because the high tourist season had not yet started. The campsite is very clean and well-maintained, and the staff are friendly, welcoming, helpful, accommodating and very knowledgeable about the local history and the numerous hiking trails in the area. The views of the surrounding mountains, some with patches of snow, were spectacular. We tackled one of the medium difficulty hiking trails up to a lake fed by melting snow. The campsite is at an altitude of 1,400 metres (4593 feet), and the lake is at 2,100 metres (6890 feet). The return hike takes about six hours and it is totally worth it! The water is so fantastically good (I've never tasted better) that you can just take an empty bottle and fill it up from one of the numerous streamlets as you go. Good hiking shoes are a must!

    Altogether our stay our stay at Camping Municipal Porte des Cimes was exceptional. No "dislikes" whatsoever!

    Price, very cheap. Also 12 kms from the border with Andorra. Stunning scenery, surrounded by great mountains. I’m sure the hiking must be excellent but for me it rained almost the whole time so didn’t get to do any walks.
    Visited Andorra from here, absolutely delightful.
    The lady running it was lovely, couldn’t have been more helpful. Thanks

Directions


Local attractions

Hiking first? Several Pyrenees hiking routes run from the park, including the Sisca lake, Pédourès lake and Etangs des Bésines trails to keep you ambling for quite some time. After that, make for the ziplining centre 10 kilometres away in Porté-Puymorens, where you can also zip down the slopes on skis around 50 kilometres of skiing area and 35 runs.

Ski resorts as well as mountain bike trails, via ferrata, fishing, hiking and horse riding are all around at Andorra, about 50 minutes' drive from La Porte des Cimes, or you could tackle the tree climbing park, bouldering, and hiking and cycling trails of Vallée d'Orlu, less than half an hour from the site.

Too much? Wander the Orlu National Reserve instead to spy critters like bearded vultures and marmots, or take your eagle eyes along to the falconry displays at Château de Lordat.

On the way to Lordat at about 25 minutes' drive north is Ax-les-Thermes, the famed spa resort soothing bods since the 12th century. Those yearning for pampering have the vast Roman-style spa of Les Bains du Couloubret to assist; those still seeking action should come here for the leisure centre with outdoor pool and the town's three ski resorts.
