Travel with Children

With efficient transport, quality accommodation choices, a low crime rate and bucketloads of activities (for all seasons) crammed into a compact nation, Andorra makes a wonderful family-friendly destination, particularly for anyone with kids keen on adventure sports. Ski resorts tend to offer both winter and summer activities, so it's a great spot for year-round family fun.

Baby-changing facilities Available in some, but certainly not all, restaurants and public spaces. Department stores are usually a good bet for clean facilities.

Hotels Andorran hotels often have good-value triple, quadruple or even bigger rooms aimed at families, and at the very least can usually provide an extra bed or cot; you'll need to request these when booking, and there may be an extra charge.

Lifts & Pavements Generally plentiful and in good condition for pram-users in the capital.

Dinner time Many restaurants have dedicated, sensibly priced, kids' set menus, with a drink, dessert and straightforward main (like grilled chicken and chips). Shopping centres are good for hunting down snacks between traditional local mealtimes (which might take some adjusting to for hungry little ones unaccustomed to Andorran eating hours).

Transport If hiring a car, request car seats for children well in advance, and note that kids under 10 are not allowed to sit in the front. Children often get discounts on tickets for buses (and also museums).

What to bring You should be able to find everything you need in Andorra, though it's worth packing supplies of particular brands/items you use regularly at home.
