Enjoy a new country close to Barcelona in just one day
Located in the eastern Pyrenees Mountains and between Spain and France, Andorra is the sixth smallest country in Europe, having an area of 468 km2 and an estimated population of 85,000.
Andorra la Vella, the capital, is the highest capital city in Europe, at an elevation of 1,023 meters above sea level.
The official language is Catalan but also Spanish and French are spoken there.
If you go to Barcelona and then to Andorra as a day trip in the winter months you should really enjoy the ski resort in Andorra.
Most of these resorts were once small mountain villages which have grown in recent years due to skiing.
Now all these small villages are joined together so that your ski pass covers neighboring areas.
As a result there are now two large alpine skiing areas known as Vallnord and Grandvalira.
When you come in the summer time to Andorra you should enjoy the beautiful nature in the mountains with its trekking and hiking routes.
The highest mountain to climb is the Pic de Coma Pedrosa with 2,942 meters.
In Addition Andorra la Vella is a good destination to buy all kinds of cheap goods because of its advantage as tax paradise.
Especially new luxury product can be net cheaper in your own country.
But still do not be surprised that even without taxes the prices can be higher or the same like in your own country.
It depends which product you are searching. But usually you will be surprised positively by the prices.
If you do not want to plan the trip on your own you can take a special tour from Barcelona called "Three countries in one day: France, Andorra and Spain.
