From beginners to professionals and fast alpine skiers to the most resolute cross-country skiers, there's a spot for every skill level in Andorra. We're talking a choice of four snazzy resorts where you can hit the slopes (but hopefully not the deck): Grandvalira, Vallnord Pal-Arinsal and Vallnord Ordino- Arcalís and Naturlandia.
First up, Grandvalira, which isn't just the largest ski resort in the county, but also in the entire Pyrenees. (Impressive, huh?). Yep, there are more than 200 kilometres of slopes here, so new skiers have space to practice and regular skiers can avoid the rookies. The sectors are divided throughout several towns in two villages (Canillo and Encamp): Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig, Soldeu, El Tarter, Canillo and Encamp. Plus, it has all of the services that you might need: restaurants, equipment rental shops, Wi-Fi zone and even a funky igloo hotel.
If you're travelling with any non-skiers, then Vallnord might fit your holiday a little better. Sure, it's got an extensive skiable area, with close to 100 kilometres in ski slopes spread across two resorts (Vallnord Pal-Arinsal and Vallnord Ordino-Arcalís), but there's also an intense activity schedule for non-skiers, too. Plus, there's plenty of places to rent equipment (in case you forgot your lucky goggles) as well as nearby hotels.
Naturlandia offers something slightly different than the other ski resorts because it's the only option in the Principality of Andorra for Nordic skiing. The 15 kilometres of tracks are in the upper sector of this adventure eco-park, so expect sport and unmissable scenery. It also has equipment rental and dining services (for when you've worked up a big ol' appetite), and as if that wasn't enough, you can round out a day of skiing with other attractions in the area. To experience the longest alpine toboggan run in the world head to Tobotronc or for airborne adventure give Airtrekk a go. Its wooden structure is 13.5 metres high and you can attempt to overcome 54 trials grouped in three levels of difficulty.
