Andorra is a small country which is situated in the southwest of Europe, sharing its borders with Spain and France high up in the eastern Pyrenees.
It is estimated that somewhere in the region of ten million people visit Andorra each year and tourism currently accounts for approximately eighty percent of the country's gross annual income. International banking also plays a major role in providing income for the state as the country serves as a highly lucrative tax haven.

Other popular activities which are enjoyed by those visiting Andorra on vacation include hiking, trekking and mountaineering. The Caldea Thermal Spa Centre is also well worth a mention as it offers a fantastic means to relax, unwind and indulge yourself in a huge selection of Turkish baths, indoor and outdoor pools, saunas, waterfalls and fountains.
Owing to the fact that Andorra is located in a somewhat restricted mountainous area, the primary means of entry is through the use of a single road which enters the country from France and another road which enters the region from Spain. This journey takes approximately three hours by car from airports situated in Barcelona and Toulouse, although you can also travel to the capital city by means of a helicopter flight which takes around thirty five minutes depending on which airport you choose to depart from.
Although the official national language in Andorra is Catalonian, the vast majority of the population also speak English, Spanish and French which means there should be little difficulty in ordering food and drinks at the local bars and restaurants in the various mountain resorts.
