Andorra and the Pyrenees
The principality of Andorra is found in the heart of the Pyrenees. It borders both France and Spain, and offers a mix of both cultures. In addition to the stunning landscape, Andorra contains many historic towns and villages as well as one of Europe's oldest parliaments. Our base is in charming Soldeu. We include local guides for two excursions in addition to a trip on a scenic rack railway.
