There’s no time to waste, so feel the magic of skiing on your first morning at the iconic Grandvalira resort. With 210 kilometres spread over a total of 138 trails for all levels, it is the largest ski resort in the Pyrenees. It is divided into seven sectors, so you have lots to choose from! If you’re still not an expert at this sport, go to the Ski & Mountain Academy where you can learn to ski like a true professional.

After a day's skiing, an exclusive experience awaits you without having to leave the resort. With Grandvalira Epic Experiences, you have the option to go for a night out, whether it's snowshoeing, snowcat or cross-country skiing. Why not combine it with the option to spend the night in an igloo, the Domo Lodge, a treehouse or a typical Andorran borda refuge?

This sector is undoubtedly the most virgin of the entire resort and is notable for its landscapes of wild natural beauty. You will be engrossed in the scenery as you ski down the slopes! It has trails for all levels as well as a space for practising freeriding, and you can even try other activities like snowshoes and snowmobiles.

In the afternoon you can book one of the most special plans of your Andorra holidays. Have you ever tried mushing? If the answer is no, this idyllic setting is the perfect place to do so! Sign up for a dog sled excursion and fall even more in love with the Principality. The adventure continues with tubing. The only thing you have to do is sit on an inflatable tube and ride down the alpine slide. You’ll want to do it again and again!

The Vallnord-Pal Arinsal ski resort is an endless source of activities, so for your firth day you can continue enjoying everything the ski resort has to offer. At this point you’re sure to know the trails like a pure-bred Andorran. You can also take the funicular that connects Pal with Arinsal and spend the morning practising your favourite sport there.

The adventure continues in the afternoon, but this time it’s in the air. In Andorra you’ll find loads of circuits in the trees.
