With 65 summits over 2,000m high, this tiny jewel of the Pyrenees is a popular winter choice for skiers drawn to its breathtaking slopes, yet the rugged landscape and sub-Mediterranean climate make Andorra an ideal summer destination for active travellers.
Europe’s 6th smallest country at just 182 square miles, it’s a nature-lover’s paradise with forest covering 90 per cent of the terrain and three protected areas, threaded by some of Europe’s most beautiful and less-travelled trails. Walkers of all levels will delight in stunning mountain views, rare plants and wildlife, and historic Romanesque ruins that reﬂ ect 1,000 years of rich cultural heritage.
For mountain bike lovers from beginner to pro rider, there’s an abundance of dedicated cycle circuits and thrilling downhill routes, plus two bike parks. Adrenalin seekers can also make the most of other blood-pumping mountain sports, such as via ferrata, climbing, canyoning, zip wires and horse riding.
