Are you planning a 48 hour summer getaway to Andorra? Visit the Principality and discover the wide range of offerings it has in store for you. Enjoy the warmest days of the year in the best destination!
There’s no better way to start the day than by going to Grandvalira, the largest ski resort in the Pyrenees with a grandiosity that can be best appreciated in summer. Pure white gives way to a green backdrop that sets the stage for a wide range of activities. You can bike, play golf, practice archery, go horseback riding and much more. Another interesting plan is Funicamp, a funicular with bird’s-eye views of the Cortals Valley.
Of course you also have the possibility of taking in exceptional landscapes like the Pessons Lakes, the largest lake system in the Principality of Andorra. To finish up the morning, how would you feel about doing a route with 4x4 vehicles?
You’ll have built up an appetite by now, and we encourage you to have lunch at a traditional mountain cabin in Encamp parish. You’ll love the aesthetics of these restaurants, not to mention the food. Now with a full stomach, take the opportunity to visit Casa Cristo, an ethnographic museum where you’ll learn about life in Andorra in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Mon(t) Magic Family Park in Canillo is a park for experiences and adventures with the whole family. Find out about all their activities here

In the middle of the mountain villages, The Borda del Tremat is Ideal for finding the tastes of yesteryear.
Visiting Casa Cristo in Andorra means travelling back in time to discover what the home of humble family of day labourers was like in the past
The second day starts strong, specifically with a hike on the Fontverd trail. This route crosses the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is 13 km long, and takes around 4 hours walking through breathtaking landscapes. The Fontverd tail begins at km 6.2 of the Engolasters road, very close to the extraordinary Engolasters Lake in Encamp parish.
In the afternoon, get ready for the Engolasters Adventure Forest, with several routes through the trees where you’ll have to get through different types of obstacles: wooden bridges, swinging vines, rope bridges, etc. There are four levels of difficulty, so you just have to choose the one that’s best for you and your partner. If you still have energy left, you can’t leave Andorra without doing a thrilling mountain bike route on the Camí de les Pardines. We guarantee it’ll be worth the effort!
The Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley was declared in 2004, UNESCO Heritage of Mankind in the category of Cultural Landscape.
Adventura Forest in Engolasters is located next to Engolasters Lake in Escaldes-Engordany.
The Camí de les Pardines is an MTB route that is almost flat .
