Pyrenees family holiday, Andorra
Description of Pyrenees family holiday, Andorra
Nestling between Catalonia and France, the tiny principality of Andorra makes the perfect location for an active family holiday. The Pyrenees are your playground as you raft, hike and bike. Explore beautiful Andorra and dip into Spain, too, trying new activities but also stopping off in pretty hamlets or just soaking up the mountain scenery.
You’ll be based in Soldeu at a friendly, family run hotel that’s only occupied by like-minded families and individuals who are travelling with us, so the atmosphere is extremely welcoming. Our experienced guides help every member of your family get the most from each adventure. There are activities to suit all ages, including scenic valley hikes and mountain biking. There is also the chance for some adrenaline-fuelled fun white water rafting down the Noguera River. This is considered one of the five best rivers in Europe for rafting, because it has plenty of safe exit points and long stretches of steady rapids. A free day gives you the chance to choose from lots of optional activities, including zip lining, horse riding, canyoning and fishing.
The activity schedule is really flexible, so if you’d rather relax in the fresh air for an afternoon, that’s no problem – it’s always possible to opt out – and activities such as biking are backed up by a support vehicle. Group sizes of up to 16 people are fine and we can split groups up based on fitness and ability, so everyone is completely comfortable with each activity and the level it’s pitched at.
