Andorra is a small mountain kingdom between Spain and France. This tiny place is packed with dainty ski resorts, and offers dramatic scenery and duty-free shopping for visitors on Andorra holidays.
Whatever the season, Andorra holidays offer tourists a host of exciting activities. Winter season is the country’s heyday, with ski resorts enticing travellers with incredible landscapes and a variety of snow sports. The largest ski area in the Pyrenees, Grandvalira Ski Resort covers 1,900 hectares of mountain terrain, offering captivating views of snow-capped mountains and breathtaking adventure activities. Drive snowmobiles at night, build igloos, or enjoy paragliding and helicopter flights above the glistening snow. Kids can join in the snow fun at the snow garden and nursery. Chill out and enjoy Catalan and Pyrenean cuisine at Grandvalira’s “restaurants on the slopes.”
For picturesque views, head to Vall D’Ordino, a ski valley in northwest Andorra. Children’s snowmobiles, free-ride and freestyle areas, helicopter flights, ski bikes, and races are some of the activities to be enjoyed here. If the temperature gets too low, visitors can warm up with a few drinks at the bars, visit the museums, play golf, or de-stress at Anyos Park, a mountain and wellness resort.
Next to skiing, the most popular activity in Andorra is shopping. Its tax-haven status makes Andorra a very affordable shopping paradise. Andorra offers a wide range of products including electronic goods, cosmetics, clothing, and household items.
Besides snow-related facilities, Andorra also offers other attractions in its capital, Andorra la Vella. Visit treasures such as the Santa Coloma Church, one of the country’s oldest churches. A stunning display of pre-Romanesque style, it features a 12th century bell tower and a 17th century porch. Other must-sees are the striking Esglesia de Sant Esteve Church, Barri Antic (the old town), and the Government Exhibition Hall, which serves as a theatre and museum.
