Andorra

A climbing paradise and cycling's best-kept secret. Andorra is a popular choice for pro cyclist teams, so why not add it to your list? Andorra sits in the heart of the Pyrenees. So it’s just perfect to go col hunting here. Many mountain passes have some big names and famed by the Grand Tours. Le Tour is known to have ‘queen stages’ here and the fate of the yellow jersey has been defined here too many times!

Weather

Andorra has a typical mountainous climate: cold winters and mild summers. It's very dry and boasts countless days of sunshine. Autumn is the wetter season and winter offers snow, popular for skiers yet challenging for cyclists. Pack your bags according to the season you travel.

Terrain

Mountains. Rough, rugged, and plenty of climbs. It's no coincidence why this tour is called the Legendary Climbs Cycling Tour! Pass through narrow gorges and have views across breathtaking valleys – the Andorra terrain is mystical and enchanting, perfect for climb lovers.

Culture

Roman influences run deep through the Andorra region. The Catalonian culture is different to the most of Spain and you will definitely be able to spot the differences. The mountains play an important role in the way of life. And lucky for us, cycling is a popular sport here.
