Geography, Weather, & Wildlife of Andorra
Andorra is one of Europe's smallest
countries. The landlocked country sits between France (north)
and Spain (south) on the edge of the Iberian Peninsula.
Geographically, Andorra is a mountainous country in the
Pyrenees Mountains, with most people living in these mountain valleys. The elevation
is fairly high and transportation is difficult, leading to a small country both
in size and population.
Andorra is a small country so weather variations are based
more on elevation than on region. It is also a country that experiences drastic
temperature variations from day to night due to this geography.
Winters in Andorra tend to dip below freezing (32° F (0°
C)) at night, while day time temperatures generally get into the 40s (5-6° C). Summers
actually see a wider temperature range as daily highs can get up to 80° F (26° C)
on a regular basis, but nights fall to the mid-50s (12-13° C).
