For a tiny country wedged in between France and Spain in the eastern Pyrenees, Andorra packs a huge adventure punch. Known mostly as a tax haven, its reputation is getting an upgrade — Andorra is finally being recognized for having some of the best skiing in the world. Grandvalira is the best ski resort in Andorra, with over 5,000 acres of terrain for all levels to enjoy.

But don’t sleep on Andorra in the summer, either. Those treacherous slopes transform into rollicking mountain-biking courses, ideal for an adrenaline-fueled stop on a trek across the continent. Life here is pretty easy too, which is why, combined with its undeniable tax advantages, Andorra has also become a popular place to retire.
