Squished into the eastern Pyrenees between France and Spain, this tiny little country is best known for its skiing, smuggling and lax tax laws. Even if you’re not much of a skier though (or smuggler for that matter), there’s still plenty to like about this Lilliputian land. The shopping is top-notch (and duty-free), the cuisine – drawing on the best of French and Spanish gastronomy – is predictably delish, and the scenery stunning. Plus, if for some crazy reason you decide you don’t like Andorra, it’s not like you’ll need to go far to escape it – at only 290 square miles in size, a foreign border is never too far away.

Intrepid is committed to traveling in a way that is respectful of local people, their culture, local economies and the environment. It's important to remember that what may be acceptable behavior, dress and language in your own country, may not be appropriate in another. Please keep this in mind while traveling.
In Andorra, we stay in locally run accommodation including guesthouses, smaller-scale hotels and homestays in an effort to support the local economies.
