MountainsAndorra is a very mountainous country, situated in the heart of the Pyrenees. There is a variety of climbs here, with some steep gradients and some very long and gradual climbs. It is almost impossible to do a flat route in Andorra, so riders that love to climb will certainly enjoy cycling in the country.
SceneryThe scenery is generally stunning throughout the country. As soon as you leave the valley which runs through the heart of the country you are immediately amidst typical mountain scenery: high peaks, beautiful lakes and charming forests.
The main road running through the valley between the two main border crossings is very busy and best avoided on a bike. Elsewhere, there are a few long tunnels which are no good for cycling, but pretty much everywhere else is quiet for cycling. The exception to this is during the main ski season in winter; but why would you be cycling in Andorra at that time of year anyway?
Getting ThereAndorra is not very accessible. There are no commercial flights here and the french and spanish trains drop you a fair way from the border. By car it is about three hours from both Barcelona and Toulouse - the two nearest big cities.
It is also important to bear in mind that Andorra is not part of the European Union, nor the Schengen free movement zone. Take your passport but don't worry about whether or not you will get in; anyone legally in France or Spain can travel to Andorra without problems.
