Andorra has an ample variety of outdoor activities to enjoy. The surrounding nature, and abundant snow gives it character hard to find elsewhere. In Andorra, you can practice extreme sports such as cliff hanging, bungee-jumping, or you can go for something a bit more tame, like hiking and sight seeing among the vast number of trails and routes. Cycling is another idea, horseback riding, skiing, taking a stroll with the little ones… you can even take a tour in a helicopter!
Fishing in Andorra is both relaxing and idyllic. With over 60 mountain lakes, sprinkled between the mountain valleys, and meadows with cows and semi wild horses, and where 4 fishermen in the same place is considered over crowded, could their be a better place to fish?
Some rivers can be reached by car, however the best ones are above 2,000 metres high, which mean a good 1-2 hours walk from the nearest road. This makes fishing a full day out or even a few days out, allowing you to relax and fish even in the starlight of the beautiful warm evenings.
Season license (rivers and lakes): 57,30 E
8-day license (rivers and lakes): 36,00 E
Daily license (rivers and lakes): 10,80 E
Licenses can be bought in all fishing shops, tourist informations and in all the department stores that have a fishing section.

Cycling or Bicycling as it is less known is a form of transport, recreation and sport which has had a significant resurgence in recent years due to rising fuel costs, traffic congestion as well as a means of keeping fit. Depending on the kind of cycling you wish to do, there is a bike suitable to your needs. From mountain bikes, Tourers, Road Bikes to racing bikes, there is a cycle to fit all.
In areas in which cycling is popular and encouraged, cycle-parking facilities using bicycle stands, lockable mini-garages, and patrolled cycle parks are used in order to reduce theft. Local governments promote cycling by permitting bicycles to be carried on public transport or by providing external attachment devices on public transport vehicles. Conversely, an absence of secure cycle-parking is a recurring complaint by cyclists from cities with low modal share of cycling.
The European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) is coordinating the development of a network of high-quality cycling routes that connect the whole continent. The routes can be used by long-distance cycle tourists, as well as by local people making daily journeys.
