Action-Packed Activity Holiday in Beautiful 4-Star Family Hotel in Andorra’s Stunning Pyrenees

All hotel rooms are traditionally furnished, and come with en-suite bathroom with hairdryer, satellite TV, telephone, safe and minibar.
The hotel offers a kids club for children from the age of 4, open mornings and afternoons and featuring a fun kids’ programme packed with organised play and daily activities, allowing our parents to relax by the pool or in the hotel’s spa after an active day out.
For adults and older children who still feel full of energy after a day in the mountains, the hotel offers fitness classes such as yoga, Zumba and aqua aerobics, and has a modern gym. There is also a bike park nearby, where teenagers in particular can practice their biking skills.

The Principality of Andorra is located in the eastern Pyrenees and bordered by Spain and France. The capital, Andorra la Vella, is the highest capital city in Europe at over 1,000 metres above sea level and popular with tourists for its many great value designer shops, due to the low rates of taxation. Andorra is the 6th smallest country in Europe and the official language is Catalan, although Spanish and French are also widely spoken. The country is only 468 square miles in size and has 84,000 inhabitants, who can however enjoy the 3rd highest life expectancy in the world.
Andorra is a hugely popular holiday destination all year round. The summers are dry, with lots of sunshine and a fresh mountain breeze, making it ideal for hikes through the stunning countryside, and there is an abundance of summer activities on offer.
The mountains are predominantly rugged, and the highest mountain in Andorra is Coma Pedrosa at 2,943 metres. We will be staying in Soldeu, a lovely small village in the heart of the Pyrenees located at 1,700 m and the ideal base for exploring the diverse beauty of the Pyrenees.

"This was my second summer holiday in the mountains with SPOH and it did not disappoint. Andorra is stunning and there were loads of fun activities to do, both for children and adults. The hotel was cosy and comfortable with an excellent buffet and affordable wine. Our guide Thomas was helpful and good natured, and he and the parents on the trip all bonded well - it felt like one really big, happy dysfunctional family. Looking forward to the next trip with SPOH :o)"− Katrine & Marius (5) – Andorra holiday, August 2016
