If you like your countries monarchic, your cities few and your mountains snowy, Andorra is the place for you.

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 468 square kilometres in size, a foreign border is never too far away.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.
