Andorra

DESTINATION OF THE MONTH ALPS

With its 468 sq km of tumbling valleys, Romanesque churches and sky-reaching peaks wedged between France and Spain, Andorra offers by far the best ski slopes and resort facilities in the entire Pyrenees. Once the snow melts, there’s outstanding walking, ranging from easy strolls to demanding day hikes in the Principality’s higher, more remote reaches, where you can wander for hours, almost alone.

Bustling capital Andorra la Vella is crammed with traffic and duty-free day trippers, retaining just a sprinkle of character in its centuries-old Barri Antic. That’s all soon forgotten, though, once you strike out above the tight valleys.

According to local legend, Andorra was founded by Charlemagne in the 9th century. Until the 1993 proclamation of its constitution, this Catalan-speaking minicountry was jointly governed for over 700 years by two co-princes: Spain’s bishop of Urgell, and the French president, who remain honorary heads of state.

DESTINATIONS IN Andorra

RENT A PLANE TO Andorra

Due mainly to the mountainous nature of Andorra, there is only one road entering Andorra from France, and only one widely-used road entering Andorra from Spain. Almost all entry into the country happens at one of these two points.

Visitors from outside the EU should note that Andorra is not a Schengen member, and exiting France or Spain into Andorra would terminate a single-entry visa. In practice, though, immigration does not enforce this. Non-EU citizens with a residence permit in a country that is a member of the EU do not require a separate visa to enter.
