Andorra is a tiny landlocked country nestled on the border between France and Spain. The history of Andorra is very interesting and varied and, although it has its own government, it 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 transfer times varying between 3 to 4 hours depending on which airport you fly to and which to resort you are travelling, however on rare occasions when the weather is very bad transfers can be a lot longer!
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 and 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.

The weather in the mountains can change very quickly, and you should be prepared for very cold temperatures as well as hot sunny days on the slopes! Andorra has a very good snow record and recent years have seen have seen some major snowfalls and great conditions on the slopes. It is difficult to predict the weather conditions for a given week or month, so it is best to keep checking the weather forecast & snow report.
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 suncream and sunglasses for those sunny blue sky days.

Andorra uses the standard two-pin European socket. Adaptor plugs can be purchased from supermarkets around the resort, but it is best to bring your own with you so that you are already prepared.
This comes down to personal preference and the amount of money you have to spend on lessons. With group school you will meet new people and it is much more social, whereas with private lessons you usually progress faster.
Yes you can! It depends on how many people are in your group, but this can be organised either paying group prices if your group is large enough or for smaller groups a private instructor can be booked to look after just your group.
No you don't.
