Coll d'Ordino

The Coll d'Ordino is a Pyrenean climb in Andorra, Starting just outside our favourite place to stay, La Massana, this climb is at the easier end of the scale for Andorran climbs. Home to a handful of professional riders such as Dan Martin and Jack Haig, Andorra is a playground for cyclists with over 21 cols.

The Climb in Detail

“The climb gives stunning views.” - Thomas Richards, Bikecation Bike Guide


The Ascents

You can climb the Coll de Ordino from Ordino or from Canilo.

From Ordino it is 10km long at an average gradient of 7%. The top of the Col is at 1979m and so you may feel start to feel the effects of the altitude as you approach the summit. The climb feels difficult for the first 4km. The climb rises from 6% to 8% over the first 4km, and then settles down to a steady 6% after this. The shock of the first ramp and the increasing steepness make the beginning of the climb feel harder than the top.

From the Canillo side the climb is easier. Never getting above 6% untill the last push to the top and being a nice steady climb. 

Both sides provide great views! 


Its place at the Vuelta

The Coll d'Ordino has been used six times at the Vuelta and with its most recent appearance being last year. As one of the few through roads in Andorra you will be hard pressed to ride in Andorra and not take on this climb from one side or the other!
