Andorra, a tiny country in the Pyrenees, is well known for being one of the most suitable places for skiing, snowboarding and all other kinds of winter sports. But this is not all that this country offers to its visitors. Here you can see the incredible landscapes of untouched mountain peaks, churches of the times of the Roman conquerors, visit restaurants with excellent cuisine, participate in various recreational activities and relax in the largest spa in Europe.
In this article we offer you 5 options for your vacation in Andorra. Even if you don´t ski, Andorra offers many excellent recreation opportunities.
- Enjoy some of the most beautiful mountain scenery of Europe
The nature of Andorra amazes with its beauty. The valleys, mountain rivers and snow-capped hills are a real paradise for photographers. We recommend visiting such places as Pic de Casamanya, la Coll d’Ordino, Arcalis or forests de la Rabassa.
- Take a ride on a dog sled
Riding around Andorra in a dog sled will be an unforgettable experience for the whole family. Pal-Arinsal, as well as Pas de la Casa are famous resorts where you can practice this exotic sport and feel yourself in harmony with nature.
- Feel the adrenaline while driving a snowmobile
The speed of a snowmobile cruising the mountain trails in the Pyrenees will definitely make your heart beat faster. This is one of the most popular types of entertainment for fans of extreme leisure.
- Relax in the spa center La Caldea
After a busy day, sledding or skiing, it’s time for relaxation. For this purpose you will find a well-known thermal complex Caldea which offers its visitors opportunities to spend time in hot waters while enjoying beautiful views of Andorra. Bathing in hot springs, sauna, jacuzzi, Turkish bath – this is the best you can imagine when the thermometer shows the temperature below zero outside.
- Follow the route through the Romanesque churches
One of the reasons for traveling to Andorra at any time of the year is to visit amazing Romanesque churches situated along the valleys and gorges of the country. A feature of the Romanesque heritage in the Pyrenees is that their long spiers and tiny holes instead of windows let light through only at certain times of the day.
You will be amazed by the simplicity of decoration and impeccable harmony with the nature of the ancient churches of Andorra, many of which date back to the 11th-12th century.
