Andorra is unique
Much more than you had imagined
Andorra is a small state where you can find great day-outs anywhere. A country that surprises the visitor with it’s variety of proposals on offer. Throughout the year, you will find a broad range of activities for all ages. A place where it is impossible to get bored!
The essence of snow lasts into night
The fun atmosphere that you find in the snow moves on to the après ski offering. Once the ski resorts close for the day, they start preparing for the next skiing day.
Right on the slopes, there are many after-ski lounges with an atmosphere that extends to the rest of the country. Once the sun goes down, the nightlife venues take centre stage and take over from the slopes. The good vibes transfer to these clubs offering a multitude of music styles. If you decide to continue the fun after a day of skiing, you will find plenty of leisure options everywhere!
Also, the ski resorts have opted for this alternative, and increasingly they offer skiers the opportunity to extend their daily activities without having to leave the area! Some of the proposals for this season are sleeping in an igloo and/or an airstream caravan, a high-altitude supper, healthy dinners with yoga classes or night outings with snowshoes or snowmobiles.
You’ll be short of hands!
Andorra is the place for great shopping. It’s shops have become an identifying feature of the Principality and are distributed throughout the country. There’s up to 1,400 stores. Sports shops with ample stock to complete your ski equipment, fashion, jewellery, electronics, fragrances and pharmacy and healthcare products are the items most visitors want to buy. Also, there are large pedestrianised commercial avenues like Vivand which runs through Charlemagne Avenue in Escaldes-Engordany and Meritxell in Andorra la Vella.
