What to do in Andorra after the ski season?

When someone says "I've been to Andorra", we immediately associate it with skiing, and we do so because without a doubt, Andorra is a country of snow... But is Andorra really just a country of snow?

The answer is absolutely NO, Andorra is a snowy paradise in winter, but when there is no snow, it is still a paradise, a paradise where we can do countless activities, and today we are going to show you some of those activities.

 

Skiing is over, what can we do?

The variety of activities in Andorra in summer is enormous and varied, and above all, suitable for all types of public:

  • Hiking: Andorra has a large number of trails for walking and hiking, which can be enjoyed in spring, summer and autumn. There are routes for all levels and ages, from easy walks through the valley to more challenging ascents to the mountains. If we are in the Encamp area we can do a walk of approx. 3?h. to l'Estany de Pessons, in the Canillo area we have easy walks such as Llac d'El forn, medium difficulty such as Font del Ferro or if you are an expert hiker climb Pic d'Encampanada, in the Ordino area we can take the Tristaina cable car.

 

  • Cycling: Andorra is a popular place for cyclists, with roads with impressive views and numerous mountain routes. There are options for cyclists of all levels, from beginners to professionals. Shopping: Andorra is known as a shopping paradise, with a wide variety of duty-free shops.

 

  • Enjoying the local gastronomy, knowing where to eat in Andorra is important, in general we will always be right, since the local gastronomy is amazing, a Trinxat, an escudella, some llauna snails, game meat, some Andorran cannelloni, a quince aioli, some good local sausages (such as donja, bisbe or briguera), a masegada coke will take our taste buds to another level (and our belts... to unfasten).

 

  • Visit the Romanesque churches: Andorra has a rich Romanesque heritage, with many ancient churches in the region. The churches are a great place to visit and explore the history and architecture of the region, if your option is to visit the Romanesque in the area, be sure to go to the church of Sant Joan de Caselles, or Sant Miquel d' engolasters.

 

  • Spa and relaxation: Andorra has several spa and wellness centers, where visitors can relax and enjoy massages, facials, and other spa services.

 

  • Outdoor activities: In addition to hiking and cycling, there are also many other outdoor activities that can be enjoyed in Andorra, such as horseback riding, paragliding, rafting (these last two activities require special permits), and much more.

 

  • Visit to the museums: Andorra has several interesting museums, which address topics such as the history of the region, culture and nature. The Contemporary Art Center and the National Automobile Museum are some of the most popular museums, but there are more options, such as the Casa de la Vall or the Escaldes-Engordany Art Center.

 

In summary, Andorra is not only a paradise for skiers, Andorra offers its visitors a huge variety of activities to enjoy after the ski season. From walking and hiking to shopping and museums, there is something for everyone, and if you don't come... you're missing out.
