Arcalis (Andorra) Arcalis is a fairly gentle climb for the most part. The first 6km are little more than false flat. From here, there are a few steeper gradients, but it is mostly steady and easy to settle into a comfortable rhythm.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL HERE

This climb is not specifically hard apart from couple of switch backs and will allow you to look around and contemplate some Pyrenees around you.

The road surface is in excellent condition throughout.

There is some traffic on the climb, but it is never a real nuissance. The amount reduces considerably after passing through the village of El Serrat.
