Unwind, relax and build deep connections at our inaugural Summer Networking event in the stunning mountain setting of Andorra.

You’ll be joining a select group of business owners whom we’ve got to know over the years and who share similar life and business values. We’ll come together for 3 intense days of exciting activity in an exceptional location. The objective: Build deeper connections and mutual trust in a relaxed and stimulating environment, ultimately leading to support and help for each other. Oh, and we’re going to climb the highest mountain in Andorra, eat at a secret smugglers cafe, jump in the river, drive some cool buggies, checkout amazing scenery and loads more…

Why?

To explain, have a quick read of Our Why.

When, Where & How Much?

Arrive in Andorra on Thursday July 12th. Event starts officially on Friday morning. Leave on Sunday 15th July. You are welcome to stay on after the Sunday if you’d like – just let us know and we’ll be happy to help arrange it at cost. Loads to do and see here in Andorra and also Barcelona.

Our primary base will be the Hotel Palarine, in Erts located in the Principality of Andorra.

What’s not included:

Thursday Evening in Barcelona (Optional meal)

We’re hoping you’ll be able to arrive a little earlier to join us at 8pm for a meal in central Barcelona at one of our favourite restaurants. If you do, we’ll arrange transport back to Andorra using the hotel mini bus. If there’s more than the bus can accommodate, we’ll look into hiring a second bus and split the costs with you. The cost of the meal will be about €60 to €120 per head, depending where we go and how much we drink… The food will be exceptional, I promise!

Transport

You can fly to Barcelona and also Toulouse, Girona, Carcasonne and other smaller airports. Barcelona usually has the best choice of airlines and flight times and also offers the most transfer options.

The fastest way to get to Andorra from Barcelona is by helicopter to the Andorra-La Seu d’Urgell Airport (LEU). There are private helicopter flights from Barcelona which take 25 minutes, then it’s about 45 minutes into Andorra by taxi. Currently LEU is a private airport in the process of opening up to commercial transport – presumably this will finally happen once Spain and Catalonia reconcile their differences…

The nearest train station is in France, in L’Hospitalet-près-l’Andorre, located just 7 miles by road from the border. You can get a fast train to Toulouse, then change onto a district line for L’Hospitalet. After this you can arrange a taxi or catch a bus – https://www.mobilitat.ad/ca/linies-regulars-internacionals for more details about buses.

In winter, the road between Andorra and France can be closed due to avalanche risk in which case you can get out at the end of the line in Latour-de-Carol, although you may find it harder to arrange a taxi from there. The advantage is that you are not far from the Spanish road entrance into Andorra which is not subject to the same avalanche risks as the French border road.

Buses leave Barcelona airport roughly every hour and take about 3 to 3.5 hours. There are two companies:

 

Driving from Spain is very straightforward and an enjoyable drive. It takes about 2.5 hours. Lots of hire car possibilities at Barcelona airport.
