2.  It doesn’t have to be what everyone else is staring at.

Discover Europe's hidden Gem - Andorra

Why Andorra is a perfect destination for families

Andorra is a playground for activity holidays; with peaks of up to 2900m and valleys dropping to 700m, it’s the perfect place for exciting walks, white-water rafting, skiing, snowshoeing and mountain biking. In winter, snow usually arrives at the end of November and stays put until April. As Andorra has some of the highest peaks in the Pyrenees, there’s always a decent depth of snow under many blue skies to give Soldeu its name – ‘Sun God’.
