Sports camps: train with your team at altitude

Are you a coach or part of a sports team and looking for the perfect place for altitude training? Andorra offers you everything you need to make your pre-season training a success in terms of sports facilities, sports accommodation and even sports tourism activities. Its unique environment pushes you to perform at your best during your pre-season preparation, as it lets you train at altitude with a climate that’s perfect for different elite sports.

The weather conditions (pleasant temperatures and sunny days) and altitude above sea level provide the perfect setting for training from spring to autumn. In addition, there’s a wide range of complementary sports activities on offer, including hiking, trekking, mountain biking and cycling trails to complement training, recovery and relaxation at thermal centres, and a wide range of leisure and shopping options.

Performance and team cohesion at an altitude of 2,000 m

If you decide to train at altitude with your team, you’ll face additional physical and physiological challenges due to Andorra's location in a high mountain environment. For sports such as football, basketball, futsal, handball, volleyball, rugby and martial arts, there are so many options for organising a high performance pre-season training camp in the country.

Sports played indoors or in open fields undoubtedly require endurance. Thus, training at altitude will let the body adapt better, increasing the production of red blood cells and improving the efficiency of oxygen transport. This enables players to sustain their physical performance for longer periods.

It can also be mentally challenging, which fosters cohesion and camaraderie among players. Teamwork is essential in these disciplines, and facing the difficulties of training at altitude together can strengthen bonds within the team and boost communication and trust among players.

You’ll maximise your team’s performance by getting them ready to face the rigours of competition at both national and international levels.

Throughout the year, several friendly events among local clubs, youth competitions and international invitational tournaments are held, providing the opportunity to play at the elite level in this discipline.
