Enjoy Easter in Andorra, even if you don’t know how to ski
Andorra is much more than a paradise for ski lovers. The small country of the Pyrenees has a wide range of activities for all tastes, and is an ideal destination for couples, friends or family.
Without a doubt, the most coveted attraction is its spectacular high mountain landscape surrounded by nature, one of the most beautiful in Europe. However, its rich culture, enviable gastronomy, shopping in the streets of the capital or the tranquility it conveys to the visitor, are just other of its most precious treasures.
Spending Easter in Andorra is a perfect plan that you can’t miss. Spring temperatures are more pleasant, there are fewer tourists than in the middle of the winter high season and you can still take advantage of the last days of snow on the spectacular ski slopes of the Principality.
If you like to playing sports, but you are not into skiing, don't worry, the alternative options are multiple. You can climb the mountain and glide through the snow on a sled, whether dragged by dogs or freely, enjoy the hiking trails (on foot or snowshoe) adapted for the most experienced and for all members of the family, riding a snowmobile or walking around the many lakes of the region.
If the weather accompanies, and also if it doesn’t, the Andorran cultural offer will not disappoint you. Taking the route of Romanesque churches (with more than 40 temples) or visiting the sanctuary of Meritxell, is always a unique and highly recommended experience. You can’t also miss visiting some of the most picturesque charming villages in the area such as Ordino, Pal or Llorts, among others.
As we mentioned, enjoying nature is one of the greatest incentives, but when you discover Andorra la Vella, the coquettish capital of the Principality, you will know first hand why it’s known worldwide as a heaven for those who like shopping. Its streets are full of shops and shopping centers where you can find anything you are looking for, from the latest trends in technology, fashion, design or perfumery, to, of course, all the accessories and sports products you can imagine.
Likewise, you can’t leave Andorra la Vella without trying one of the circuits in the famous hot springs of Caldea, located in capital, or tasting some of the exquisite dishes of the Andorran cuisine in one of its many restaurants around town.
The Holiday Inn Andorra hotel is an excellent choice to stay during Easter in Andorra. Located in the city center, this 5-star hotel is as good as it gets to spend an unforgettable holiday with your family or couple. Modern, cozy and with impeccable services, here you can rest peacefully after a long day outdoors.
Its rooms are a guarantee of comfort and have everything you need to enjoy a memorable stay. The property offers free WiFi in all areas and its facilities include private parking, bar-cafeteria, restaurant and ski equipment storage room.
