Andorra is full of landscapes, history and tradition. Although the country is known for its snow and its endless ski slopes, the Andorran summer offers a multitude of activities and plans that will surprise you.


Tristaina Solar Viewpoint

On your visit to Andorra you cannot miss a visit to this viewpoint in the shape of a sundial. It is located on the Peyreguils peak, at an altitude of no less than 2,701 metres, and to be able to enjoy it it is necessary to take the both the Tristaina and the Creussans chairlift, where the views of the valley will leave you speechless. After the last ascent by chairlift, what follows is a pleasant mountain path of about 20 minutes to finally reach the viewpoint. Undoubtedly a must if what you are looking for is to enjoy the impressive landscapes that the country offers.



Roc del Quer and Canillo Tibetan Bridge

If you are looking for the sensation of being on a cloud contemplating the Pyrenees, the Roc del Quer is your place. This viewpoint located in Canillo offers spectacular views of the parish. Getting to it is very simple: after taking the Ordino pass road (CS-240), the viewpoint is at km 6.5. As soon as you arrive you will find an area where you can park and a few steps away you will find the viewpoint. Of the 20 meters that its structure measures, 12 are suspended in the air, which gives the sensation of levitating while you observe the impressive view of Canillo and the mountains that surround it. In addition, at the end of the viewpoint you will find a large sculpture where you can see a thinker in a calm and observant attitude, work of the artist Miguel Ángel González.

To continue with breathtaking panoramic views, we recommend that you visit the Canillo Tibetan Bridge. An infrastructure located 1875 meters high and 158 meters above the Vall del Riu. Its 603 meters in length will allow you to contemplate the impressive views offered by the valley while you cross this Tibetan bridge.

A visit to the town of Aubinyà

There are numerous rural towns that are worth visiting in Andorra. On this occasion, we suggest that you take a walk through the town of Aubinyà, a privately owned but fully accessible town that dates back to the 9th century. Lose yourself in its cobbled streets and immerse yourself in the infinity of curious details that you can find on the facades of their houses. You will also be able to see medieval towers, Romanesque bridges and huge iron signs explaining the history of Andorra, as well as a sculpture of the Dama Blanca, which will welcome you at your arrival to the town.

The town has a car park and is completely pedestrian.



A day of adventures in Naturland

Andorra is an ideal country to visit with the family, as it has many activities for the little ones. Something that should not be missing from your list of plans is to spend a day in Naturland, a theme park in the middle of nature and surrounded by forest in Sant Julià de Loria. At this park is located the well-known attraction Tobotronc, which is the longest alpine slide in the world with an ascent and descent of 20 minutes and at an altitude of 1,600 meters. In addition, you can do the Route of the Tamarros, some mythological beings who are in charge of protecting the forest. There are seven Tamarros located in different areas of the route and if the children find them all, they will be awarded a gift for having achieved it!



Practice sports in Grandvalira

It is clear that sports take center stage in Andorra. The famous Grandvalira ski resort also opens its doors in summer to enjoy numerous adventures in the high mountains. There, you can go hiking with guided routes, tour the Llac del Forn by canoe or water scooter, practice archery or slide down the second longest zip line in the Pyrenees with an exciting 550-meter route that goes from Planells del Forn to the llac of the Forn.

As you can see, there are countless plans to do in Andorra in summer. Its rugged mountains are perfect for hiking or climbing. However, if you prefer quieter activities, it has a great cultural and entertainment offer, both for adults and children. Without a doubt, an exciting summer awaits you in Andorra!
