Top Things to Do in Andorra
Culture in Andorra
Discover Andorra’s Diverse Museums
If you enjoy visiting museums on your travels, then you’ll love Andorra’s eclectic mix of exhibits. Andorra has a wide range of museums, each offering a peek into different aspects of its rich history. From museums dedicated to culture, motoring, industry and the countryside, there’s a world of discovery at your feet.
Visit Sky-High Cities
Andorra’s capital, Andorra la Vella, invites you to explore its Romanesque stone churches, unique open-air geology museum, and the serene riverside Parc Central.
Journey Through Timeless Villages
Meander through enchanting villages that seem plucked from a storybook, with their old houses, cobblestone paths, and beautiful landscapes. In Andorra, every walk through its picturesque villages is a step back in time.
Eating in Andorra
Digging into the local food scene is one of the best ways to experience Andorra’s rich Catalan culture. Feast on local favourites like cannelloni, salted cod, and lake trout, or try something adventurous like charcoal-grilled snails called caracoles a la llauna.
If you’re looking for comfort food, then try Andorra’s national dish: Escudella. It’s a hearty stew loaded with meats like chicken, veal, and sausage mixed with potatoes and beans.
Shopping in Andorra
If you’re longing for retail therapy, then Andorra’s lower tax rates are like a dream come true. Visit ‘The Shopping Mile’ in Andorra la Vella, your go-to for everything from fashion and fragrances to sports gear and gadgets.
This shopping paradise begins in Avinguda Meritxell and stretches all the way to Vivand. And if you need to recharge, there’s plenty of cosy cafés and restaurants in the area. Perfect for putting those shopping bags down and treating yourself to a spot of lunch.
Relaxing in Andorra
Dive into Luxury at Caldea Spa
We love Caldea Spa. It is one of the largest thermal spas in Southern Europe and only a 30-minute bus ride from Arinsal.
You can’t miss its standout 80-metre tall tower - the highest tower in Andorra. Once you’re inside, be prepared for some architectural gems.
And more importantly, sensational spa facilities that make use of the local hot springs. There are many different areas to uncover, with plenty of pools with hydro massage jets, whirlpools, and even waterfalls.
And if you’re hungry from all the relaxation, there’s even a restaurant on site.
Walking in Andorra
Take a walk through Andorra’s diverse landscapes, where you’ll find a range of walking routes for all skill levels.
The country is home to three major nature parks, including the famed UNESCO World Heritage Site, Madriu-Perafita-Claro.
Choose your own adventure, be it a peaceful walk amid glacial valleys, a leisurely walk by serene lakes, an exploration of mountain villages, or an adventurous trek through lush pine forests.
Ever wanted to be in two places at once? On some trails in Andorra you can. Play a game of country hopscotch and have one foot in Andorra and the other in France.
Don’t forget to capture those moments. It’s not everyday you take on two countries in just one step.
Walk Across The Tibetan Bridge
The Tibetan Bridge, an architectural gem, is perched 158 metres above the captivating Vall del Rui, stretching a whopping 603 metres wide. If you’re a thrill seeker looking to reach new heights, then walking this bridge should be at the top of your Andorra Itinerary.
Comapedrosa Valley National Park
A stone’s throw away from Arinsal is the Comapedrosa Valley National Park, crowned by Andorra’s tallest peak, Pic de Comapedrosa. This protected area is a sanctuary of wildlife, including sparkling lakes, cascading waterfalls, and lush forests. Numerous hiking paths are to be found in the park, with three mountain refuges offering a refreshing stopover.
Cycling in Andorra
Got that pedal power? Andorra’s smooth roads and exhilarating backcountry trails are a cyclist's dream. Imagine weaving through mountain roads and taking on backcountry tracks that have the seal of approval from the MTB World Championships each summer.
In Andorra’s three natural parks, you could find yourself sharing trails with semi-wild horses and horned ibex. Look up, and you might just spot golden eagles and bearded vultures soaring gracefully above you.
