Andorra, The Perfect Ski Destination
The Principality of Andorra, nestled comfortably in the eastern Pyrenees Mountains, is bordered by Spain and France. Its location is what makes Andorra a perfect getaway for anyone who loves to ski or snowboard. It's also the perfect holiday spot for someone who is interested in learning to ski or snow board. Skiing in the UK has become a very popular sport in recent years, with a growth rate of over 3 per cent in recent years.
It is relatively easy to book a great ski holiday in Andorra. Of course it is always advisable to book in advance to guarantee great rates and rooms. Many of Andorra's ski resort packages include ski lessons for beginners or intermediate skiers. Ski packages also include accommodations at the area's finest resorts, duty-free shopping inside the resorts, chef-prepared meals and many other relaxing activities.
Many Andorra ski holidays also cater to families. They offer special programs for kids, or even full families, just learning to ski or snow board. Families around the globe enjoy yearly Andorra ski getaways. Some of the most popular family ski packages include ski lessons and kids club options. Parents usually enjoy the health and beauty treatments available at the resorts.
Andorra also offers a wide array of ski schools. Not everyone who visits the beautiful scenic country can ski upon arrival. Many visitors are interested in learning to ski or snow board.
Snow boarding has a large following in Andorra because of the number of gently flowing, well-groomed slopes. The slopes are busy enough to make even the least experienced skier feel comfortable; yet not so busy they are too intimidated to take the plunge.
Much more than skiing and snow boarding is available. Skiing or snow boarding in Andorra is only one of the many ways its citizens and visitors relax. Because it is such a small country, a look at an Andorra map shows plenty of small villages to help you get away from the stresses of everyday life. Aside from some of the best ski areas, there is an active night life. Many of the small villages have lively pubs and clubs if you enjoy an active night life.
Andorra's local economy thrives on its ski tourism and banking sector. Only two per cent of Andorra's land is arable, so agricultural production is limited. Most food is imported from other areas. Most farmers in Andorra raise sheep in lieu of crops, though some grow tobacco.
Andorra offers a great combination of natural snow and each major resort has extensive snowmaking ability. It has a great altitude and strong southern sunshine. With a stress free environment like this, it's no surprise that the average human life expectancy in Andorra is almost 84 years.
The main ski areas for Andorra skiing holidays are Soldeu, El Tarter, Pas de la Casa, Ordino, La Massana and Arinsal.
