Skiing is the major tourist activity, and the main resorts are Grandvalira and Vallnord. If you don't fancy swooping down the slopes, the country has several other interesting attractions on offer.

La Vella is the mini-state's main town, and is home to several museums and monuments, including the Miniature Museum and the Perfume Museum. Or chill out at Caldea, Europe's largest health spa. There are 6,000 square metres of pools, lagoons, jacuzzis and saunas. The Comapedrosa National Park, Sorteny Valley National Park and Madriu Valley offer the outdoor person many activities, such as hiking and rock climbing. The Naturalanda Park on La Rabassa Mountain claims to have the world's largest alpine coaster.
