Andorra is a tiny landlocked country nestled on the border between France and Spain. The history of Andorra is very interesting and varied; it has its own government but also remains a co-principality with France and Spain. Andorra does not have its own airport and most tourists arrive by flying to either Toulouse, Girona or Barcelona, with average transfer times varying between 3 to 4 hours depending on which airport you fly to and to which resort you are travelling.
Soldeu is home to the Sport Hermitage Spa if you want to relax and unwind, or if you fancy going shopping then it isn't far to either Pas de la Casa or Andorra la Vella where there are plenty of bargains to be found. Andorra la Vella also has Caldea thermal spa which is Europe's largest thermal spa. There are also plenty of snow related activities which don't involve skiing or snowboarding such as dog sledding, igloo building, paintballing and groomer rides, as well as an ice rink down the road in nearby Canillo.

It is difficult to predict the weather conditions for a given week or month, so it is best to keep checking our weather forecast & snow report which is updated regularly by our resort team.
As the weather can be unpredictable you should bring a selection of clothes and accessories that will keep you warm. Layers are advisable so that you can adjust your clothing as the weather changes, and don't forget sun cream and sunglasses for those sunny blue sky days.
