Getting around Andorra
There's a regular bus service from Pas de la Casa to Andorra la Vella, passing through Soldeu, Canillo and Encamp. The bus stop for la Vella is by the small car park next to the Aspen, and for Pas outside the Post Supermarket. It runs from 8am till 8pm on the hour, every hour.
In winter you can use the Gel-Ski bus which is free when you show your lift pass. It runs from the Hotel Peretol (just outside of Soldeu) to Canillo, stopping in Soldeu at about half-past every hour and returns stopping in Soldeu at about 5 past every hour. Runs from 9am till 11:30pm except for siesta (1pm-3pm).
You can also stick you thumb out and hitch a ride - it's very common here in the winter time and good for those on a budget or seeking adventure!

You will need travel insurance for your trip to Andorra - your E1/11 will not cover you! As Andorra is outside of the E.U., it is down to you to arrange suitable cover. Make sure it includes the activities you're gonna be taking part in. When you buy your lift pass you will have the option of insurance for a few € more.
