The Pyrenees is the mountain range that divides Spain and France. Nestled amongst those mountains is Andorra.

  • How to Get There from Barcelona: Andorra is a three-hour drive from Barcelona or a four hour bus journey (with Alsina Graells) Andorra might look closer to Girona than to Barcelona, but the roads from Girona to Andorra aren't great and it actually takes longer than going via Barcelona.
  • What to See: Andorra is actually a separate country (the only country in the world where Catalan is the first language, although Spanish & French are widely spoken). Excellent for skiing and buying cheap electrical goods and jewelry due to the tax-free status of the country.

    There are several points of interest outside of Andorra too. The mountain town of Vic, the stone-built village of Queralbs and of course all the lovely scenery.

    To see all of this in day would be quite an effort if you were to organize it all yourself. Much easier to book a tour such as one of these:

  • Three Countries in One Day - Spain, France and Andorra
