Ski resorts in Andorra
The small country of Andorra is located between Spain and France and despite its size, it offers a large number of shops and shopping centers, hotel complexes and, above all, kilometers of quality ski slopes.
And it is that in Andorra we can find 3 ski resorts, Grandvalira, Vallnord Pal - Arinsal and Ordino - Arcalís, considered among the best ski destinations in Europe and that offer more than 300 km of ski slopes for all levels. Whether you ski with children, or if you have decided to spend a ski holiday with friends, you will be able to find your corner among the domains of Andorra.
Grandvalira stands out as the biggest ski resort in Andorra
Skiing in Grandvalira
The Grandvalira ski resort is one of the largest in Europe, with 210 kilometers and a total of 128 slopes for all levels. Its 64 lifts and gondola lifts will take you to a height of up to 2,640 meters and with a single Ski Pass you will enjoy the entire ski area that makes up Grandvalira like never before.
In addition to skiing, in Grandvalira you can practice many other activities related to snow. So, if you want to spend more days in the snow, you can fill them with fun, snowshoeing, going on a snowmobile, or enjoying an exciting ride on a dog sled while mushing. There is even a park for adventure activities!
The Vallnord Pal - Arinsal ski area is an excellent option for a ski holiday with the family.
Skiing in Vallnord Pal - Arinsal
The Vallnord - Pal Arinsal ski resort has 7 green slopes and 17 blue ones for those who are skiing for the first time or have just started their adventures in the snow, and 17 red slopes and 4 black ski slopes, ideal for experienced skiers. There are a total of 31 mechanical lifts that allow you to climb to peaks of a maximum altitude of 2,560 meters, to later enjoy skiing down to the start of the ski slopes.
In Vallnord Pal Arinsal you will find different services directly on the slopes, such as bars and cafés, where you can take a break between descent and descent, or restaurants that are ideal for eating at midday or after your day of skiing. The resort has 2 ski and snowboard schools with 200 qualified instructors, ready to help you learn the correct skiing technique. And if you go skiing with children, you can leave them in the snow gardens that you will find directly on the slopes, where they will learn while playing with the snow.
Ordino-Arcalís is perhaps the most versatile ski area in Andorra
Skiing in Ordino - Arcalís
The Ordino Arcalís ski resort is located in the Ordino Valley, in Andorra. Thanks to its orientation towards the northeast, the snow quality is very good during the winter and allows good skiing even at the end of the season. Another reason for booking a ski break on its 30 kilometers of slopes, is that it is at a considerable height, between 1,940 m and 2,625 m.
Ordino Arcalís is a very versatile resort. It has slopes for all levels and offers a wide variety of areas to practice different types of skiing and snowboarding. It has 9 green slopes and 6 blue ones for skiers who have just started in the white sport. Furthermore, it is important to underline that Ordino Arcalís is home to the longest ski slope for beginners in the Pyrenees, the Megaverde, with a length of 8 kilometres.
There are many alternatives to get to Andorra. You can do it by car, by bus or by combining plane with transfer, thanks to its proximity to Barcelona and Toulouse airports.

The Caldea Thermal Centre is the place to relax after a ski holiday in Andorra
Relax in the thermal baths
Do you fancy a relaxing bath in hot springs? An ideal plan for both families and couples after a few days on the snow is a visit to the largest spa in Southern Europe - Caldea.
The center was built in 1994 and has been designed so that you can enjoy a wellness experience in hot springs full of contrasts. Likewise, its building is very characteristic and reminds us of the silhouette of the mountains.
The thermal waters that you will find in Caldea emerge at 70ºC, and are special for their properties; rich in sulfides and minerals, as well as sodium and oily as thermal plankton. These waters produce anti-allergic, healing and decongestant effects. Sounds good, doesn't it?
