The Principality of Andorra is undoubtedly a snow country. An important part of the country’s economy revolves around this activity during the season. That is why the largest investments by mountain Ski Resorts companies are destined for these purposes. To surprise the clients or work on aspects that improve the quality of the experience, this is undoubtedly the greatest effort undertaken year after year.
Andorra has an almost unique ski, shopping, leisure and cultural offer in the Pyrenees. There is an important variety of tourist accommodation and hotels, near the slopes, to satisfy all snow and mountain lovers.
In the valley of La Massana are the Vallnord Pal-Arinsal stations, whose offer grows every year thanks to the combination of its varied summer activities – the station has recently been recognized by RedBull as one of the best Bike Parks in the world – and its skiable domain, accessible to all levels, in winter.
On the other valley, Grandvalira, one of the largest ski resorts in southern Europe, recognized for its number of ski kilometers. It has different entrances, Encamp, Canillo, El Tarter, Soldeu, Peretol, Grau Roig and the Pas de la Casa – border with France – This year it incorporates the merger with the Ordino Arcalís station, this merger allows them to increase the skiable kilometers within of the same skipass. Finally, Naturlandia, which more than a ski resort, is an adventure park, also offers incredible cross-country ski circuits, snowmobiles, snow slides and attractions with circuits through the snowy forests, or its mythical slide “Tobotronc ”One of the longest mountain slides in Europe with more than 5 kilometers in length.
