Andorra, close to home
Many tourists visit us for a two to three day weekend break.
Winter really suits Andorra. If you and your preferred travel companion would like to come see it for yourselves then just take note of some of these details. You’ll have a blast!
Andorra is a perfect destination for weekend breaks and for long weekends. Two or three days is not enough time to see all the country's attractions, but you can fit a lot in by choosing from Andorra's long and interesting list of things to do. This is why many visitors come here over the Christmas period , for New Year's Eve, the All Saints Day holiday and at other times during the winter season.
Andorra is a particularly attractive choice for those living in the northeast of Spain or in the south of France. Cities like Barcelona, Lleida or Toulouse have very good road connections with the Principality and in many cases you can get from one city to the other in two to three hours. You can get here by private car or by bus with many companies offering an intercity service from the cities mentioned above and others closer (Seu d’Urgel) and further away (Salamanca, Girona, etc.).
Travelling by train or aeroplane is an interesting option for those visiting Andorra from other big cities in Spain or France such as Madrid, Zaragoza, Paris or Montpellier. In all these cases you have to change your mode of transport to continue by road from any of the cities mentioned above. If you want more information on how to get to Andorra , please visit our web page for full details on the available options in each case.
Before heading off on your break in Andorra, we recommend that you do your homework. It is important at the very least to make sure visas and passports are in order. This is a very simple process in most cases as Andorra has an agreement with the European Union allowing EU citizens and those travelling from Schengen countries free movement across our borders. You can get more details about this on our web page before travelling . Here you will also find information on exchange rate, currency, duty-free etc.
