Sandwiched in between Spain and France, Andorra is a small and mountainous country that offers plenty in the way of excellent mountain climbing.
With a large variety of fairly tall mountains, mostly ranging between 2.500 and 2.800 meters in elevation, there are plenty of single-day trips of which to take advantage. Among the most popular are Pic de les Abelletes (2.600 meters), Pic Negre d’Envalira (2.822 meters), Bony d’Envalira (2.664 meters), Pic dels Pessons (2.864 meters) and Pic d’Arcalís (2.734 meters).
Each offers stunning views down into Andorra’s numerous valleys and presents its own challenges. While they are all mostly simple enough for novice mountaineers to climb, they also still excellent options for more advanced climbers as well.
The summers in Andorra are cool and dry with average daily temperatures of about 24ºC. At higher elevations storms can form quickly, but are not common. Overall, the country doesn’t get much rain in the summer.
Flying into Andorra–La Seu d'Urgell (LEU) is the best way to get to Andorra. The airport offers connections from Madrid and Marseille. From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive to your final destination.
May to September, but some guides offer trips from February until October.
