Andorra is a small country located in the heart of the Pyrenees. 92% of it consists of mountains, lakes and rivers.
Andorra's idyllic landscapes are covered in winter by a thick blanket of snow that attracts visitors from the most remote places on Earth. Many return in the summer to go trekking through the mountains, which reach up to 3000 m high. The country also has the world's second-longest life expectancy and ranks fourth in terms of quality of life. Fibre optic coverage reaches throughout the country.
Andorra is not only a natural paradise, but also an area of the world that draws sports enthusiasts (we have the largest ski area in southern Europe and we host major world events) and lovers of culture (we have top-quality Romanesque heritage and the world's second highest number of museums per head).
