Cycling in Andorra

Andorra In A Nutshell

There are many, many easier ways to cross the Pyrenees. In fact, to travel between France and Spain via Andorra is the most difficult but it's worth it for the views. The capital, Andorra la Vella, is a pleasant little city of 22,000 that's worth exploring.

When I Went To Andorra

10th - 11th August 2011. As with all the tiny states I wasn't there long.

Where I Went

Andorra's Scenery

As you'd expect for a tiny state high in the Pyrenees the rugged mountain scenery is superb.

Andorra's Road Quality

Excellent. The traffic up the hill on either side can be heavy as people come to fill their boots with duty-free booze although it's usually slow moving. The easiest way to see Europe's highest capital, Andorra la Vella, is to approach from Spain and go back the same way. If you want to cross from France to Spain or vice versa, be prepared for the Envalira Pass at over 2,400 metres.

Andorra's Accommodation & Costs

Sorry, no information. My only night there was in a private home.


The official language is Catalan, but Spanish and French are widely understood.

Reasons To Go To Andorra

The challenge of the climb, the scenery, the joy of the freewheel out of the place.
