Nestled between France and Spain, Andorra is the jewel of the Pyrenees. This tiny principality boasts a sky-high capital, Andorra la Vella, surrounded on both sides by steep, majestic mountains. Andorra la Vella has several charming old stone buildings like the Sant Esteve Church, but it's also the top choice for shopping with its modern, tax-free shopping centres. The pearl of the city, the luxurious hot springs and spa of Caldea, sits right in the city centre in a stunning geometric glass building. When winter rolls around and snow paints Andorra white, skiers flock to the resorts of Grandvalira and Vallnord to schuss down the world-famous slopes. If you're visiting in warmer weather, there are plenty of alpine hiking trails winding through the forests, or racing down the toboggan track at Naturlandia before heading back to curl up by the fireplace at one of our stellar hotels in Andorra.
Food & drink:
All about fortifying you for your active pursuit of choice, mountain food is both flavourful and filling. A few traditional dishes include “trinxat,” a type of potato pancake made with cabbage, onion, and thick pancetta or pork, creamy “canelons” filled with minced lamb and topped with bechamel sauce, and “escudella,” a savoury broth with meatballs, vegetables, and pasta. Try a plate of the local charcuterie and cheese to sample the quality of Andorra's local products, and you can't go wrong with ordering anything featuring the earthy wild mushroom varieties found in the Andorran forest.
