Accessible Travel

Despite its mountainous terrain, Andorra's facilities for travellers with disabilities are steadily improving, with wheelchair access and adapted bathrooms now available at many shops, restaurants and hotels (in the capital, main towns and, to a lesser extent, the ski resorts), as well as dedicated parking spots. Andorra Turisme (http://visitandorra.com) publishes lists of wheelchair-accessible restaurants and hotels, and the tourist office in Andorra la Vella can also provide advice. The eastern ski resort of Grand Valira is particularly accessible, with dedicated skiing classes and discounted prices for those with disabilities; see www.grandvalira.com/en/skiing-disabled.

Andorra-based travel agency Travel Xperience (www.travel-xperience.com) specialises in accessible travel and offers several multi-day trips within the principality, including wellness and winter-activity itineraries.
