Discover a beautiful mountain hideaway with a holiday to Andorra...
Nestled among the picturesque peaks of the PyrÃšnÃšes mountains, the charming landlocked nation of Andorra is primarily known for its outstanding skiing. Concealed between the borders of Spain and France, Andorra may be small but it punches well above its weight in terms of tourism - attracting an estimated ten million people a year.
Summer in Andorra...
Famed for its winter sport resorts, tiny Andorra is actually a wonderful all year round destination. As the snow melts, a spectacular, beautifully lush landscape is revealed, perfect for exploration. If you're a rugged outdoorsy type then a summer holiday in Andorra will be paradise. Sunny although not stiflingly hot due to its altitude, the rolling hills and valleys provide rich and memorable trekking and hiking trails. And if you fancy something a little more adrenalized, quad biking, downhill mountain biking, horse riding and archery are popular summer activities.
One thing you should not miss on a summer holiday to Andorra is the cable car journey that leads to the nation's highest peak, Coma Pedrosa. The views are stupendous.
Winter in Andorra...
Of course skiing and snowboarding are the most popular activities on a holiday to Andorra and come winter the PyrÃšnÃšes slopes are cloaked in fine powdered snow. Ideal for beginners and experts alike, the modern resorts offer pistes of varying difficulty, with lively aprÃšs-ski scenes, ski schools and excellent facilities.
Another benefit of a holiday to Andorra is that shopping is duty-free. So if you want to combine a little retail therapy with your skiing, Andorra is the place for you!
The huge Grandvalira ski region is home to the popular resorts of Arinsal and Soldeu, both of which are well-suited to families, beginner and intermediate skiiers and boarders. Lively Pas de la Casa is famous for its post-piste parties, and a top choice for group ski holidays.
