Pic dels Aspres is a mountain in the northwest of the principality of Andorra, close to the border with Spain. The nearest town is Arinsal, La Massana. Some 250 metres below the summit is a round cirque, approximately 100 metres in diameter, which was formed by glacial erosion during the Last Glacial Maximum and which is now a lake, Estany de les Truites (the trout lake).

The valley to the south of the mountain is used as a ski area.
