Andorra is much more than skiing - throughout the year there are plenty of options to enjoy this country where nature, gastronomy and culture are its fundamental pillars. In winter, try snowmobiling or snowshoeing tours and the rest of the year enjoy the spectacular Natural Parks, the activity centers of Vallnord, Grandvalira and Naturlandia, the Ice Palace of Canillo, horseback riding or quad-biking and a thousand other ideas which along with the cuisine of the typical borda mountain restaurant, visiting museums, the Romanesque route or the charming mountain villages - they will all combine to make your stay in Andorra unforgettable.
Andorra is a country of hot springs as the Romans well knew. The name Escaldes refers precisely to this fact. The spa center of Caldea-Inúu is famous as the largest centre of its kind in southern Europe. We recommend planning a visit to this centre, dive into the waters and take your time to enjoy a relaxing treatment. Our customer service department will advise and can book your visit to the Caldea-Inúu centre, providing you with preferential rates and saving precious time.
Hiking and other mountain activities such as climbing, canyoning, exploring the via ferratas and the adventure parks are the stars of Andorra, outside the winter months when skiing takes precedence. Excursions to lakes, walking beautiful valleys and reaching the most beautiful peaks of some of the country's national parks are really unique activities. We can provide maps and advice so you can organize your own activities, but if you prefer, we will take the time to arrange a professional mountain guide who will help you further enjoy the incredible mountain scenery.
