Andorra is a mountainous country. Here you will find valleys, rugged peaks and 65 peaks over 2.000 m, with the Comapedrosa the highest peak at 2.942 m, and the lowest valley in Sant Julià de Lòria, at 900 m. This difference in altitude between the country’s lowest valley and highest peak makes possible to plan a “living up, training down” training program: training at moderate elevation and living in high elevation, between 1.000 and 2.000 m above sea level.
