Things to do
  • Touring Andorra starts with the vibrant capital of Andorra La Vella. Perched at a height of 1023m, this tiny city is full of life (and lots of traffic)! Visit destinations like Casa de la Vall, Barri Antic, Church of Sant Esteve and Noblesse du Temps. Most importantly, the city is the basecamp for the mountainous trails and skiing destinations located at altitudes.
  • The Andorran parish of Escaldes-Engordany has Caldea, Europe’s largest spa complex. A must-visit, it gives you the chance to experience luxurious baths in hot springs and amidst grapefruits. Nature lovers must find time for the breathtaking walking trail known as the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley. Andorra has more than 54 recognized hiking trails but this is the most popular one. The path is challenging but the stunning scenic beauty makes it equally rewarding!
  • For those looking forward to an adventurous holiday, Canillo is the ideal Andorran parish. Spread across Canillo and Encamp is Grandavalira, the largest skiing and snowboarding resort in the Pyrenees and Southern Europe. Their extensive ski track covers seven sectors that can be accessed through different points between Encamp and Pas De La Casa. This is one of the flagship experiences of travelling in Andorra.
How to spend time / how long will it take?

In the majority of the cases, tourists travelling in Spain or France take a detour of 2 to 3 days to visit Andorra. But if you are interested in a longer trip, 7 days will be sufficient. You can set camp in either Andorra La Vella or Canillo and then explore the ski villages, hiking trails and spas. Based on your preferred activity, decide on how many nights you’ll spend in different locations. If you’re there for winter sports, allot more days to a place like Soldeu or Arinsal which are skiing villages. If you wish to relax, you would like to stay in Escaldes-Engordany and enjoy the wellness options and easy accessibility to leisure walking paths. 


Important: Andorra does not have an international airport. The closest airports are El Prat (Barcelona, Spain) and Toulouse-Blagnac (Blagnac, France). Once you land, take a bus or taxi to Andorra. From Barcelona and Blagnac, it takes roughly 3.5 hours and 4 hours respectively.
