Andorra, mainly known for its fantastic ski slopes, swaps white for green in the spring and summer months, making it the perfect setting for outdoor sports combined with shopping, wellness treatments and good food and drink. A wide range of leisure and wellness options make Andorra a real delight for the whole family.

Natural pleasures

Summer sports are so much easier in Andorra. Swap asphalt for the mountains and forests. We can offer mountain bike and hiking routes, adapted to all levels, allowing you to enjoy your favourite activity in the great outdoors.

Still, what would a holiday be without time to relax? Once the hard part's done, it's time to indulge yourself. Enjoy fine local cuisine made from fresh, seasonal produce — the perfect way to get your strength back. Or pamper yourself in the spas and discover an extensive range of treatments that allow you to disconnect from the world and enjoy a few hours of total relaxation.

Guaranteed fun

In July, your visit might coincide with a performance by the Cirque du Soleil acrobats, who entertain young and old alike with their free event Scalada: VISION. For each of the past four years, the Canadian theatre company has enthralled spectators with a new event, every one a must-see for Cirque du Soleil fans.

If your idea of fun is a day of shopping for the latest trends from leading brands, then Andorra is the perfect place, with pleasant broad avenues lined with shops. Over a thousand of them start the season by offering irresistible discounts to tempt you into treating yourself.
