Tristaina Lakes

Tristaina Lakes are three lakes found high above the ski resort of Arcalis. A cable car from the main car park to La Coma makes a perfect start to this adventure. These high mountain lakes are a relatively easy walk for all the family and offer somewhere to swim on a hot day in Andorra
