2500 meters above sea level, nestled in between the high mountains of the Pyrenees. Andorra is one of the smallest countries of Europe, and home to Mountain Hostel Tarter. The majestic mountains are your playground for hiking and cycling in summer. And together with the numerous cable cares and ski lifts, Andorra is your best friend in winter.
Hostelgeeks visited Andorra. We stayed at the countries first 5 Star Hostel, a design-conscious hostel accommodation in an old farm house.
We dedicated a full article to our stay at Mountain Hostel: Our review of Mountain Hostel Tarter.

Our Andorra Photo Gallery
Hike with us between the clouds of the Pyrenees Mountains, and enjoy the company of cows, hiking-enthusiasts, and birds. There are many beautiful and different trails all over Andorra and nearby France and Spain. There is a slight difference between hiking and trekking though.
As an alternative, you can also enjoy mountain biking in the Pyrenees. There is many different bike rentals dotted over Andorra.
Here is the Andorra Photo Gallery by Hostelgeeks.
Mountain Hostel Tarter
The days started with a cup of coffee along with a magazine and a mountains view. Mar, the owner of Mountain Hostel Tarter, is an expert of the area.
She knows every mountain, trail, and things to do in Andorra.
We listened. Carefully. And we slowed down to the Mountains rhythm.
