Share your adventures and experiences of Andorra.
Im new to this forum, and wanted to introduce myself. Ive been reading some posts on this site and can see there are some great people here. So, hello everyone 😊
I wanted to start a discussion on Andorra, as it too often seems to be the country that people tend not to bother with. I recently returned from a trip around Europe, and found this country to be both beautiful and fun. Great for skiing in the winter, and perfect for hiking in the summer, which is what i did, and loved it.
If you have been, what sort of things did you do? Where did you stay?
Im interested to see what other people think about this place.
Thanks guys 😊
Hello Dan and welcome to the Forum!
I briefly visited Andorra last year, having heard good things from a co-worker. He also hiked and made use of the giant spas on offer. My experience was a bit different, because I wanted to stay in a quiet place with no noise. After looking around for a while, I saw rows of bright shops filled with designer brands, and a modern little city which wasn't matching my mood at the time. Thus I headed back to Spain and stayed in the small village of Martinet which I had seen an hour earlier on the journey in, and it struck me as the most picturesque place I drove through that day.
However, the scenery was lovely in and around the area, and I really should have explored other places away from the capital to look for more peaceful areas, but it was not to be.
Admittedly, the capital is a frantic place. it took me an hour to drive from the border to my campsite, 5 minutes away, due to the heavy traffic. I can understand why you would want to move on 😊
Other areas were quieter, but the whole area around the Pyrenees is quite special as im sure you will agree. I wonder what Andorra would be like in the winter, probably many times more busy due to all the skiiers.
Thanks for your kind welcome 😊
