What to do in Andorra?
During the winter, some of us only think about our Andorra skiing holidays, but there are many things to do. In this article we will give you some of the best ideas of what to do in the small country of the Pyrenees (BTW! skiing is on our list):
So, as a starter we will give you a skiing option. That’s if you want to continue skiing during nighttime, even if you’ve skied during the day, you can go to the Sunset Park Peretol by Henrik Harlaut, that is the only night snowpark in the Pyrenees. You will be able to access to this park located in Andorra, Bordes d’Envalira if you have your Grandvalira Ski Pass. There, you will probably get to see some well known riders.
As a second option, if you can go down to Escaldes d’Engordany you can access the Caldea Spa Centre or Inuu Wellness Attitude Centre. Book the your Spa tickets with Esquiades during your booking. There’s no need to book a time! In Andorra, there’s public transport but it will be easier for you to drive down the main road.
The capital, Andorra La Vella, is well known for its shopping. Take into account that it’s a tax free country and things are cheaper than in Spain or France. You will also find lots and lots of chocolate and tobacco, apart from ski shops and shopping centres.
Other outdoor activities can be done in the mountains. For example, book a Jet Ski for an hour and have a great time going up and down the trails. Visiting the Naturlandia Park where you will be able to do many other activities; hiking, the Animal Park and many more.
Oh! And remember that this March (10-17/3), Andorra is holding the Skiing World Cup. This event has certainly put Andorra on the map and recognises the country as a great skiing destination for all kinds of skiers.
On the other hand, what can you do in Andorra during the Summer?
Apart from some of the activities already mentioned above, that can also be done during the summer months, we can add to the list activities that can be done as from May/June. Some of the options are road cycling, trail running or hiking and relaxing at a hotel enjoying the views from an outdorr swimming pool. It does get hot up there during the summer!
Andorra is also relying on other outdoor summer sports and holds every summer the trail running World Cup (last weekend of July) apart from other competitions. La Vuelta also passes through some of the hardest climbs in the country and spectators can chear for Chris Froome, among others.
