A special date is approaching as is Valentine's Day and there is no better gift to enjoy love as a couple than to enjoy skiing and be complicit in endless snow experiences in the idyllic surroundings offered by Grandvalira. The Andorran Snow Domain continues at full capacity and is presented as the ideal setting to live a romantic, fun and original getaway on Friday, February 14. In addition to having open all its skiing domain, the largest resort in southern Europe has a wide variety of activities and unique experiences in the heart of the Pyrenees, to enjoy alone or in groups, which go beyond skiing. There is no better plan than to share snow with who you love, from morning to night! A romantic sleigh ride with dogs, a relaxing toast with champagne on the exclusive terrace of the Clicquot Snow Club, a crazy descent to the Màgic Gliss, an intimate dinner under a sea of stars or sleeping in the middle of nature with all the comforts are some of the Grandvalira proposals to live a Valentine's Day of the most intense and special that, like the weekend, is expected to be accompanied by favorable weather conditions.
Start the day sharing the passion for skiing
There are schools in all of the areas and they are the first to try the snow, great if you want to be one of the first to go down a slope. And for the more adventurous couples there are mountain skiing routes with guides to crown the most emblematic peaks of Andorra, as well as helieskiing or private off-piste skiing and freestyle lessons for those in love with adrenaline.
A popular competition open to all audiences is added to this weekend's agenda on Sunday 16 at SnowPark El Tarter. The Banked Slalom is the perfect excuse to bite with the couple in a circuit full of fun obstacles. The day before, on Saturday, you can also enjoy as a spectator the FIS Memorial Arnaud Cordonnier competition, in the SnowPark Xavi Sunrise. And from 3pm to 9pm the SnowPark Peretol will be operational for another week, the only night in southern Europe.
A delicious picnic surrounded by nature
One of the best kept secrets of the two centers that manage the activities at the resort, the Grandvalira Mountain Park and the Adventure Center, is the possibility of making a surprise stop to impress the couple with a delicious picnic in the middle of nature.
Beyond skiing, the two centers have an endless list of activities. One of the big claims for Valentine's Day is to enjoy a romantic sleigh ride with dogs in the Grandvalira-Grau Roig sector, snowshoes and the liveliest can enjoy snowmobiling in the Pas de la Casa.
The Mon (t) Magic of Canillo is presented as the ideal point to live countless sensations and moments of maximum fun in company, with a crazy descent in the longest zip line in Europe or the alpine slide Màgic Gliss. To spend a few moments of complicity, Grau Roig offers an entertaining igloo construction.
A toast to the Clicquot Snow Club and Amélie oysters Lake Pessons
Noon is the ideal time for a break. Two of the ideal places in Grandvalira with unparalleled panoramic views to celebrate such a special date are the exclusive Clicquot Snow Club of Soldeu, to toast with French champagne outdoors, and the Llac de Pessons Refuge with a tasting of the famous oysters of high-end Amélie. The resort also has more lively terraces for a vermouth, such as Cala Bassa Costa Rodona from Pas de la Casa that transports you to Ibiza and IQOS Terrace and its lounge space and an extensive cocktail menu.
Tribute to the great lady of champagne Madame Clicquot at the Snow Club Gourmet
One of the weekend experiences that can be enjoyed most in Grandvalira is the tribute to the great lady of the French Champagne, Madame Clicquot, scheduled for the third day of the Gourmet Snow Club. This club from the Soldeu and El Tarter sectors, open to snow and gastronomy lovers, will receive the visit of the prestigious chef who owns the restaurant Les Cols de Olot, Fina Puigdevall, awarded 2 Michelin stars, which with its cuisine will pay tribute to the feminine leadership and entrepreneurial, passionate and innovative spirit of Madame Clicquot.
Gastronomic delights at 2,000 meters high
Grandvalira has more than 60 restoration points, all operational and with a wide gastronomic offer adapted to all tastes and needs. Restaurants such as the Wine & Meat Bar by Jean Leon (Soldeu sector), the Arrosseria Pi del Migdia and La Trattoria (El Tarter), the Brasería Piolet, the 3 Estanys Restaurant and the Llac de Pessons Refuge (Grau Roig), the Corner from Solanelles and the AndBurguer (Encamp) or Roc de les Bruixes (Canillo) guarantee that eating at 2,000 meters of altitude is unforgettable to enjoy as a couple the most romantic day of the year. This experience can be lived at night with intimate evenings under a sea of stars that can be accompanied by experiences such as snowshoes, snowshoeing or snowmobiling.
The afternoon is ideal to enjoy the best après-ski in two of the Pyrenees landmarks. The Après Amélie del Funicamp will celebrate Valentine's Day with the performance of DJ Mario J in the El Tonteo session and the next day, Saturday 15, will be the turn of Caal Kurt Heisz in House of Madness. L'Abarset, meanwhile, also has a fun session and the best music with Gonçalo ready for Saturday.
