Are skis rotting away in your closet? Then head to Andorra on these flights. There is no airport here, but it is not difficult to get a ride from the many buses that travel from France and Spain. Barcelona International Airport is the closest, and the shuttles stops at various ski resorts in Andorra.
Air fare isn’t high, with loads of budget airlines travelling from the UK to Barcelona; so don’t think twice about splurging in the tax haven that is Andorra.
