Under $100 / Europe

Nestled in the Pyrenees mountain range between France and Spain is a tiny principality called Andorra. In the center of Andorra, the tiny mountain town of Andorra la Vella is known for its tax-free shopping, stunning mountain views and easy access to winter mountain sports like skiing and snowboarding. Regardless of what time of year you visit Andorra la Vella, it’s easy to stick to a reasonable budget but still enjoy what the town has to offer.


Coffee and cakes at Aussie-inspired Odei will fuel you for a morning of wandering the streets of the central shopping district. Popping in and out of outlet stores of big brands like Mango and Zara can soak up hours of your time but not necessarily all of your cash.


After shopping, take in a cozy mountain lunch at Restaurant Mama Maria, a sort-of cabin-inspired venue with rustic wood adornments that serves everything from pizza to grilled salmon to Catalan favorites like patatas bravas.


Get a bit of exercise after lunch with a hike along the Rec de Solà walking trail. After making it up an initial incline, the path is completely flat and takes walkers along a tiny waterway, passing local Andorran farms. Breathe in the mountain air as you enjoy views of the peaks that surround the valley town on all sides.
