What's included in this trip
Andorra Family - Active Pyrenees SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Arrive in Andorra and take in the beautiful mountain scenery that will be the backdrop for the week ahead. Unpack your bags in Soldeu, settle in and explore this charming town that sits on the southern slopes of the Pyrenees.
Stretch those legs on a wonderfully scenic walk to this serene spot. Return to Soldeu along meadows and rugged terrain which turn into the area’s famous ski slopes during winter.
Grab a bike and cycle the Iron Route, a scenic cycling adventure through the Ordino Valley. Iron was Andorra’s first and biggest industry. Along the route, ride past old iron mines, mills and forges while gaining a better understanding of the history of this craft in Andorra. Later in the day, get those pulses racing with a bike ride down an 8 km track before returning to Soldeu for a bit of R&R.
Today’s pace is entirely up to each family to decide. Why not stay close to home and spend the day ambling around the countryside, or visiting Caldea’s thermal baths. Adrenaline junkies may prefer to get active and go horse riding, quad biking, canyoning, or treetop zip-lining.
Cross one of Europe’s last great areas of wilderness, jump in a 4WD and head off-road, following an old smuggler’s route into Spain. Grab a bike and pedal through some spectacular scenery. And in the afternoon, swap the bike for a raft and take to the river for an exhilarating white-water adventure. Dry off by a big fire in Andorra and get in a big meal before tomorrow’s exciting activities.
Swing like Tarzan through the forest canopy, flying safely along on a series of exciting zip lines and getting great close-up views of the natural surrounds. Later in the day, unwind by the lake, and then take a short, relaxed downhill bike ride. After another full day of activities, be transported by car back to Soldeu for a good night’s rest.
Enjoy a scenic hike through the Incles Valley, one of Andorra’s most unspoiled valleys. Enjoy the mountain scenery while walking through flower meadows and past wild roaming animals to reach Sorda Lake. Brave the glacial waters and take a refreshing dip before returning to the hotel. Share a farewell dinner with the group and raise a toast to new friends and fantastic new experiences.
