Family skiing: Grandvalira


Sky and Mountain Ski Academy

Grandvalira has 6 Snow Gardens for children aged between 3 and 6 years old, spread across the Encamp, Canillo, El Tarter, Soldeu, Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa sectors. They’re designed to help children take their first steps in the world of skiing and fun in the snow. Each centre has all kinds of inflatable objects, mats, and a massive range of modules to help make sure they have a great time. In addition to Els Cortals Snow Garden in the Encamp sector, younger children will be able to take advantage of GymSki, an indoor gym where they will learn to take their first steps on skis, keep their balance and 'fall'. Everything needed to learn in a safe, comfortable setting!

Each snow garden also has a ski and snowboard school—the Sky and Mountain Academy—where qualified monitors offer private or group classes, depending on your child’s level, to help them perfect their style and ensure they progress as skiers.
Likewise, children under the age of 4 will take part in a snow familiarisation session, with games and activities to get them used to the snow.


Children between the ages of 1 and 4 can also enjoy the snow in Andorra at the 4 nurseries open in Grandvalira. Qualified carers will ensure the young ones play and have a fun time whilst you do too. All the facilities are located in heated, comfortable premises that are fully adapted to their needs.

Those in Canillo, El Tarter and Soldeu are especially suitable for children over the age of 2 whilst the nursery in Grau-Roig is aimed at children between the age of 12 to 24 months.  

Activities in the snow

Apart from the schools, Grandvalira also has 5 themed children’s areas, located in different sectors and parks:

The first one can be found in the Mon(t) Magic adventure park, in Canillo. This park is a new family area where children can enjoy not only skiing, but also activities such as sliding down the longest themed slope in southern Europe, or going down one of the longest zip lines in the Pyrenees, with 550 metres long and 40 metres high, among many others.

In the El Tarter sector, you’ll find the "Bababoom Circus", a 500-metres circuit that is decorated with fun, playful elements, taken from the world of circus, to make sure your little ones have as much fun as possible. This circuit is designed for children under the age of 12.

At Soldeu, little ones will enjoy the new "Yokai Circuit", a 646-metre circuit full of fun, where they will have adventures alongside Yokai, a character inspired by the wood grouse that lives in the forests of Soldeu! This circuit is designed for children of all ages.

Finally, you’ll find the last 3 children’s areas located at different sectors of the resort (Encamp, Pas de la Casa and Grau-Roig), in the Encamp parish.

In the Encamp sector, you’ll find the "Imaginarium d'Encamp" circuit. Located in the Cortals area, this activity lets children enjoy a 10-metre long tunnel surrounded by characters from Imaginarium!

Next to the Pas de la Casa area, children can enjoy the "Imaginarium Forest", where they can go on an exploring adventure amidst trees in a magical forest, surrounded by the Imaginarium characters! There, you will also enjoy a fun super tunnel around 50 metres long that crosses the forest – a world of fun for the youngest ones!

Finally, your children will also enjoy the "Imaginarium Park" children’s area, located in the Grau-Roig sector. Bring them to this activity park and they’ll discover a world full of fantasy and fun, with various obstacle courses to be completed, including the "Imaginarium Circuit", as well as enjoying activities that will get their adrenaline pumping, such as driving snowmobiles, snow tubbing, going down zip lines and doing jumps and tricks on the different ski slopes.

As these circuits are all themed, your young ones will be accompanied at all times by the Imaginarium characters, who will al make sure your children have a truly unforgettable experience.

Apart from our adventure circuits, Grandvalira also offers fun winter activities for the whole family: igloo building, snowmobiling, mushing and snowshoeing, among many others.
