It will take you anywhere between 2.5 and 3.5 hours to reach Andorra by bus or by car.

    The exact meeting point will vary depending on your accommodation. Andorra offers a wide range of lodging options for all budgets. You will stay in comfortable lodgings and each day move to a different area. It’s important to note that Andorra is a small country and all starting points are located close to one another, typically within an hour’s drive from the hotel.

  • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance. With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.

    Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans.

    We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to.

    If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!
