@96 pence per litre :D

We drove through from Spain this morning, stopped in Andorra La Vella for food supplies then up the mountain pass for a walk at the top and some diesel. The views were fantastic! We walked up to a peak just above all the ski lifts at a smidgeon under 9000ft above sea level...... awesome!

Then down the hill and out the French side.

Andorra in a day! Haha

For anyone who loves mountains and dramatic scenery and is touring either side of the Pyranees Andorra is well placed to flip from Spain to France or vice versa.

True, it is not the prettiest of countries but the mountains are lovely.

I would certainly not make Andorra a ‘destination’ but handy to drive through.

We did 18 mpg getting to the top and off the scale 100+ mpg on the way down so it all pans out in the end :D2

Also my cunning plan was not to fill up in Encamp and carry all that extra weight up to the top as there are 3 fuel stations right on top of the pass ! (Which is the highest paved road pass in the Pyrenees at nearly 8000 ft).

The tunnel would of course save the high drive but then I would not have enjoyed those views from the top :)
