Camping Andorra

by Guest

Many will have not have heard about Andorra, a tiny country nestled in the Pyrenees mountains between France and Spain. The mountainous region is popular for skiing and snowboarding, as well as hiking and biking in the summer months. It's also known for being a tax haven which brings in tourists for duty free shopping. The capital of the same name is as small as the country is, but charming with Romanesque churches, an old quarter and a circular bell tower. While most stay in the hotels and guest houses in the city centre, the tiny country has a wealth of gorgeous campsites and huts which help visitors immerse themselves into mountain life. While most countries it would simply be impossible to list all the sites, Andorra is so small we can accommodate every campsite and hut in the tiny independent state.
