Note concerning the excursions that that at the Ribal cascade (1'600m). Following an avalanche, the Andorran Government decided to build a protection wall cutting off the upper part of the valley of Arinsal from the rest of the world. The locals call it the "great wall of China". In order to get to the Ribal cascade, walk through the tunnel. To your great surprise, you will see apartment buildings on the other side of the wall !!! (Mind you, they are for sale!). Take the first right after the tunnel. The Ribal cascade is above the second tunnel. The Ribal cascade is about at a 15 minute walk from your apartment or chalet.
