Attractions and Things to See and Do




Unfortunately the cities in Andorra, especially the capital are not very beautiful... They have the potential - great mountains and some charming old churches, but apart from that, it's just a great shop with cheap alcohol and cigarettes... So, if you look for some sightseeing and getting to know the culture of the country, then maybe it's better to stay outside the cities... (haven't tried, but seems possible) But if you enjoy drinking and smoking, then Andorra is a perfect place! It is reeeeeally cheap!!! malzie

Transport

Me and my boyfriend were hitchhiking there - it is possible but requires a lot of patience!!! ;) Luckily it's just 50 km or something to go through the whole country (if you don't want to get out of the main road)!

Accommodation

If you do not want to stay with other HC members, or noone is available, here is what other members suggest. Hostels Hotels Camping Other Options


Well, if you have a tent and don't like to pay for the accommodation, there is a perfect place in the capital (or just outside it if you walk in the direction of Spain :)) It's an abandoned camping place, no toilets, but a lot of space and nobody to check you. We stayed there one night and it was ok! First get a map in the Tourist Office and then walk a bit... I don't really remember where it was, but I think it's outside the town in St Colona (or something like that), there you walk the main road, pass four gas stations and on a rondo, there will be a sign telling you where to go... ;))) Hope you can use the info... If you have questions, ask me
