Located in the Pyrenees Mountains between France and Spain, Andorra is a small country that is almost entirely mountains, forests, rivers, lakes and meadows. With over 60 mountain trails in Andorra, you can cross the entire country on foot without touching tarmac. Along the Gran Recorrido País trail there are 29 mountain refuges where you can spend the night surrounded by nature.
Andorra is the only country in the world that has Catalan as an official language. Because of its geographic location, Andorrans are also fluent in French and Spanish.
Ten percent of Andorra is declared World Heritage sites by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Summer solstice fire festivals take place on St. John’s Eve (June 23) in various locations, a tradition that is included in UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Andorra's economic activities are mostly centered on services, tourism and the financial sector. Tourism brings in about 8 million visitors per year.
