Introducing Caving to Adventure Andorra
Posted on April 5th, 2018
At Adventure Andorra we are always looking for new ways to help our guests get the best experiences from their holidays and we are very excited to add Caving or Potholing as it is sometimes known to our multitude of adventure activities. Just over the border with France in the small hidden valley of Ariege are some special caving areas carved intro the limestone around the Tarascon region. Our private family group guides will equip you with all necessary safety equipment to explore the amazing caves and provide an unforgettable experience for all the family. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to explore, have fun and share memories.
May half-term in Andorra
Posted on March 30th, 2018
As the ski season draws to a close in coming weeks, the true beauty of Andorra is gradually revealed as the snow melts and the mountains transition into their summer glory.
The late May half-term is a perfect time to visit Andorra for a family adventure holiday. The weather is ideal with cool morning temperatures gradually increasing to 20 degrees C in the afternoon. The skies can be crystal clear giving more spectacular blue-sky scenery than is possible in the peak of summer and the very tops of the mountains will still have snow.
For walkers and nature lovers the colourful alpine meadows will be buzzing with life and if you’re lucky you’ll see marmots emerging from their winter hibernation.
Late May and early June are quiet seasons for Andorra so prices are competitive. We highlight a example package on our home-page staying half-board at the Princesa Parc Hotel for 6 nights from 27th May. For a family of four with a full itinerary of privately guided activities including hiking, cycling and water rafting, the price is £592 per person.
Why not contact us to discuss how we can build a bespoke family adventure holiday for you.

Majestic Andorra in the Winter Sun
Posted on February 16th, 2018
There are few summer activities that continue through the winters in Andorra as the fun turns to skiing and snowboarding. The mountains are simply stunning through all seasons and winter brings a sereneness to the landscape. Our Andorran hosts are as hospitable as always during our stay to play on the slopes of Grandvalira and relax in our comfortable hotel with great food and wine. Returning to Andorra is always a great adventure.
October – a great month to visit Andorra
Posted on November 3rd, 2017
While October is considered a ‘low’ season in Andorra, the superb weather and attractive prices make a it a great destination for half term. We were there the week before half term and the weather was amazing. Clearer skies than in the summer. Warm like a good British summer day in the valleys and fresh at higher levels. This picture was taken during the hike around Tristaina lakes – an awesome day !
Via Ferrata – an amazing experience which, as a family, we will always remember
Posted on August 28th, 2017
We took the half day via ferrata activity in Ordino. None of us have every climbed before. The route at Ordino is sufficiently exhilarating that we were all pushed towards the edge of our comfort zone. The feeling of elation and achievement once we had reached the top was immense and to achieve this together as a family of five was an incredible bonding experience for us.
Canyoning in the Boixols Valley – a fantastic experience
Posted on July 27th, 2017
We had travelled to Andorra through France and were enjoying some great high mountain hikes when our youngest son decided he would like to try the adventure activity canyoning. Being a sporty 12 year old we opted for a Level 2 canyon in a small group of 4. He was first to all the jumps, slides and abseils in a truly remarkable canyon. Our guide was fantastic and made the whole experience so safe, seamless and enjoyable. We will definitely be coming back to experience this again!
