Andorra Things to Do

  • Snow

    For the ski lovers, Andorra allows adding the pleasure of sport with a great shopping activity. Ski is not exactly my family's sport (neither shopping! - Fernanda apart), so Andorra was only a quick and nice curiosity for a couple of times

  • Historical museum - see the old Andorra

    Areny-Plandolit Museum - this is a lovely little place I first visited about 10 years ago and ended spending the evening with the rather attractive curator who introduced me to real Andorran nightlife. I suspect she has moved on since !This somewhat flowery prose is not mine (I've not gone soft) but comes from the Museum's websit :This museum...

  • What to do in Andorra

    Although Andorra is a very small country there are a lot of things to do. It's a touristic place and in the height of the season it is crowded. I visited Andorra La Vella and Pas de la Casa in winter and I liked both places.Andorra la Vella is a good city to go to with your family, your friends or your partner. It isn't very cold, it's full of...

  • Stop in Pas de la Casa

    Driving from France I passed through the highest pass in the Pyreneen Mountains (see my off the beaten path tip) I drove down to the first community in Andorra called Pas de la Casa which was full of numerous concrete hotels and pensions and didn't look especially great at first sight.However, the Pic Blanc (2705 m; 8875 ft) mountain covered by...

    I stopped in a little (pop. 13,000) town of Encamp in geographical center of Andorra about 6 km from Andorra la Vella.

Among narrow streets and passages I have found numerous - typical for the Pyrenees - old houses with walls made of natural...

  • Andorra la Vella

    I surelly stopped in the capital city of Andorra called Andorra la Vella.

    Andorra has many old villages and buildings, but none date back past the Roman times.There are two (if not more) Roman foot bridges that still exist in Andorra, but most people will go right past them without knowing.

  • Have a walk by the country side

    There's hundreds of romanic small churches spread along the Pyrenees; Andorra is a place with many that still keep all the walls and roofs standing up.

    Leaving the capital called Andorra La Vella, the road leading north forks either towards France and Pas de la Casa, or to the ski resort of Arcalis in the country´s far north. If you´re holding a map of Andorra in your hands, it might look far, but actually nothing is far in Andorra since it is so small. The drive to Arcalis takes you through the...

    We didnt do this, but another couple we met went into the town centre to buy some duty free spirits, they came back with local vodka for only £2 for a large bottle and other international brands from £4 to £6.

    Caldea, to be honest, is a gaping eyesore, the kind that gives you nightmares and makes you question the value of humanity as a whole. HOWEVER: despite being the ugliest, most out of place building in the world (keep in mind there are live goats in a field not 50m from this place) it IS the ýberspa to end all spas. There are multi-level swimming...
