Summer plans for a rainy day in Andorra with the whole family

In this blog we tell you about the countless outdoor activities you can do in Andorra related to the mountains and nature in summer, but what happens when it rains? Well, the fun continues!
In summer, the weather is often unpredictable and sometimes the rains also make their appearance, especially in the afternoons. But don’t worry.
Andorra offers a wide variety of alternative proposals for a rainy summer day. Here are some options you can do with your children.

Museum itinerary for rainy days

You’ve probably heard that Andorra is one of the countries with the highest density of museums per square metre. But perhaps you don’t know all the themes they cover. Here we leave you with a route of 3 museums that are sure to appeal to both young and old alike. And they will also allow you to explore the whole country.

– The Automobile Museum

We begin with the museum dedicated to the world of automobiles, located in Encamp. It is a journey through the evolution of the car, where you will find some real gems. From the steam engine of the late 19th century to emblematic sports cars of the 1980s.

– The Areny-Plandolit House Museum

On this occasion, you will have to go to the centre of Ordino to visit an Andorran manor house from the 18th century. The rooms, furniture and items from this period have been preserved. In addition, Don Guillem d’Areny Plandolit himself, resident in the house a very influential character, will tell you first-hand about aspects of his life linked to the history of Andorra. The experience is presented with a montage that fuses holograms and physical objects from the house.

– The Bici Lab Museum

The bicycle is the star of this recently created museum, which houses one of the most important collections in Europe. Here you can also see a permanent exhibition of antique pieces and see how they have evolved. The most advanced technologies are also present in this museum, where you can experience the sensations of descending on a mountain bike thanks to a simulator or try other virtual reality experiences.

Exploring Andorra on the tourist bus

It’s always an excellent option to take the tourist bus around the country. You can choose from seven different circuits, each with a tour guide who will reveal the secrets of each itinerary. The tourist bus operates from 1 July to 15 September, every day of the week, offering half-day excursions in the morning. Each itinerary is themed, covering aspects such as art, traditions, Romanesque and traditional crafts, and all will allow you to discover Andorra’s breathtaking landscapes and panoramic views.

Swap the rain for thermal water

One of the best ways to enjoy a rainy day in Andorra is to visit Caldea with its thermal waters, jacuzzis, saunas and Turkish baths. If you have children over 5 years old, choose the Classic ticket (with children aged 3 and 4, the Classic ticket will allow them access to Likids, a thermal experience just for children with monitors who will be supervising them and preparing activities while those over 5 years old enjoy Caldea’s facilities). It is the perfect plan for hot rainy days.
Check our offer with hotel and entrance to Caldea.

Shopping in Andorra

A rainy day is the perfect excuse to go shopping and take advantage of the summer sales. The centre of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany is known for its shops, where you can find everything. From electronics and technology to clothes, fashion and perfumes. The shops are concentrated in the Meritxell and Carlemany avenues or the Riberaygua area and crossings. In addition, of course, to Pas de la Casa, offering a comfortable and pleasant shopping experience.

Rain in summer doesn’t have to ruin your holidays in Andorra. You’ll find a wide variety of alternative B plans that won’t be affected by the weather. So next time you see clouds on the horizon, remember that every day is an opportunity to create unforgettable memories.
We are waiting for you to enjoy a perfect holiday, rain or shine!
