Excursion to the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley
In 2004 the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley was declared World Heritage in the cultural landscapes category. There are currently only 88 landscapes in the whole world that have been declared World Heritage. That’s why you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to visit it.
It is an area with no roads where nature reigns supreme over the dominion of humankind (you’ll see a few shepherds’ huts, but little more than that). You can hike the different itineraries, stay in one of the nine refuges and enjoy the magnificent scenery and nature in all its plenitude. A true gift for the senses!
Shopping in Andorra
One of the unmissable itineraries in the Principality is the shopping route. If you love shopping, you’ve reached an oasis! We recommend a stroll along Meritxell Avenue, the main artery that crosses Andorra from west to east. You’ll love it’s many boutiques of all types. Another option is the Illa Carlemany shopping centre.
Les Escaldes and the thermal spas
Another of Andorra’s well known attractions is its hot springs. Stroll through the town of Les Escaldes and you’ll come across numerous hot springs and many spa hotels, including Caldea, the large hot springs spa in Europe.
A day of adventure in Naturlandia
In the parish of Sant Julià de Loira, in the heart of the La Rabassa forest, this adventure park has more than 800 hectares of fun-filled attractions hidden among its natural surroundings. You’ll find the Tobotronk, the largest alpine slide in the world, and Airtekk, an aerial circuit almost 13.5 metres high, among many other attractions. It’s a place that’s sure to raise your adrenaline levels.
Enjoy the authentic local gastronomy
If you’re a gourmet, you’ll love Andorra. Andorran cuisine takes the best of French and Catalan gastronomy. It’s a cuisine based on the self-sufficiency of the local society and native mountain produce. Mushrooms, vegetables, pulses, sausages, game and freshwater fish are the basis of its dishes, most of which are slow cooked. Enjoy them in a “borde”, one of the traditional mountain houses that have been converted into restaurants serving the best of the local gastronomy.
