In about 2 hours and 45 minutes from Barcelona, on the top of the Pyrenees , sandwiched between France and Spain is the lovely small and cozy Principality situated. Surrounded by nature , mountain , lakes and rivers Andorra still distinguished itself as a huge shopping center due to its low taxation rate. Don't forget your Passport because Andorra is not a member of the European Union. During the winter time its a famous ski resort and during summer the ideal place for hiking. The glacier lake Engolasters on one of the Pyrenees peak invites for its amazing nature . A treat should be also besides the Caldera hot springs Spa, a ride with the cable car of La Massana village to one of the peaks Pal-Arinsal which is a ski station ! This tour can also include France and can be extended from 2 to 3 days !

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Lydia was great! She has a tremendous knowledge of Catalonia and European history and culture in general, and as a former teacher did a great job of conveying that knowledge. She held the attention of our entire group, ages 11 to 75, which isn't easy! We highly recommend her and would love to do another tour with her in the future.
