Andorra

Andorra is a destination to visit all year round

Andorra is a country to be experienced 365 days a year, and each season has its own special charm! In spring, nature awakens, in summer the sun and the good weather invite you to extend your days in the mountains, and autumn is ideal to escape from routine after your holidays. And the first snowfalls are the first sign that winter is approaching, marking the start of the ski season.
Each season offers different experiences to enjoy in your own way and with whoever you want, whether you are travelling as a couple, with your family or with friends.
Here we tell you all about it!

Spring bursts out in all its splendour

It is the favourite time of the year for many. Temperatures are more pleasant when it comes to taking advantage of the last of the snow to go skiing before the resorts close, ski touring or snowshoeing. But it is also a perfect time for cycling without getting cold or going for a walk or run in the city or the mountains when the snow is gone.
In May and June, the first sporting events and open-air music festivals begin in Andorra and continue until the beginning of autumn.

The quietest season

Another reason to be a fan of this season is that it is less crowded compared to summer or winter. After Easter and before July, there are fewer visitors to Andorra. You’ll be able to stroll and go shopping at your leisure, and you won’t have to stress about booking a table in one of the country’s busiest restaurants. But what’s more, if you get away in spring, you’ll enjoy better prices 😉. Book your spring break on our website and benefit from an extra 10% discount.

In summer you won’t stop!

Parties, festivals and outdoor activities, as well as trail running, road cycling and mountain biking competitions are always on the agenda – check out the events calendar to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
The word that best defines summer in Andorra is: active. These are the days to pack your backpack and go hiking. It doesn’t matter if you climb a peak or reach a lake: nothing compares to having breakfast or lunch surrounded by the sounds of nature. In Andorra, you’ll find hiking trails available for all levels and with durations that are affordable for everyone.

Much more than hiking

You can also set aside a day for the endless activities in the heart of nature offered by the ski resorts during the summer months, perfect for children, without forgetting to make time for culture! Summer gives you the chance to visit the Romanesque churches that are only open at this time of year, or to attend museum nights with small concerts, performances and cultural routes.
And to round off the summer season: an essential part of your visit is a sunset over the mountains from one of Andorra’s viewpoints, an impressive souvenir to take home with you!

Autumn is all about colours, flavours and lots of shopping

During this time of year, getaways to make the most of the weekends and long weekends in autumn are commonplace. Temperatures are still pleasant and there are enough daylight hours to stroll through the streets of the country and have a drink on the terraces.
At the end of September, nature begins its transformation and changes its colour palette from green to ochre, orange and reddish tones. Undoubtedly, a visual spectacle that captivates everyone who sees it.

The shopping festival

In November, the Andorra Shopping Festival is held, a festival for shopping lovers. During the weekends, in the country’s shopping centre you can attend live performances, travelling shows, as well as take advantage of discounts and special promotions. This is the time to get ready for the coming winter season and renew your ski equipment.
For foodies, Andorra Taula is also here, the country’s culinary days whose proposals will delight you 😉.

And then comes the star season of the year: winter.

Skiing, snowboarding and snow activities are the things to look forward to in December in Andorra. This season is synonymous not only with snow sports, but also with celebrations. Christmas, New Year and Epiphany festivities fill the streets with a festive spirit. Lights, Christmas markets and decorations create a magical atmosphere, ideal for enjoying with family or friends. In winter Andorra also celebrates Carnival, a great opportunity to discover local traditions and the much-desired Valentine’s Day.

The après-ski in Andorra

Of course, no snow day is complete without après-ski. A tradition that turns afternoons and evenings into moments of relaxation and entertainment. Andorra offers a wide variety of options.

Plans to do 365 days a year

In Andorra you’ll find activities to enjoy all year round. From shopping in its commercial hubs, to visiting museums that tell the story of the country’s history and culture, to relaxing or having fun in Caldea. Ice skating is an option at any time of year, while visiting the picturesque Andorran villages allows you to discover the rustic charm of the Pyrenees. Each activity offers a unique experience, making Andorra the perfect place for those looking for variety and charm all year round.

Year-round accommodation

Els Llacs Mountain Apartments are also for year-round enjoyment and the pace of the plans Andorra has to offer. They are located in Bordes de Envalira, just 2 minutes from Soldeu by car and opposite the Grandvalira ski resort.

What do you need to enjoy the snow with your children?

Organising a snow holiday in Andorra with the whole family is an activity you can’t miss in winter. However, there are some points to bear in mind, apart from accommodation, planning the trip and meals. One of them is how to dress the little ones properly to protect them from the cold and damp when skiing or doing activities in the snow. In this article we tell you about the ski equipment you will need so that you have everything ready.

What clothing does your child need for the snow?

The important thing is that you travel with what you need so that you don’t lack anything, but that you don’t carry unnecessary clothes either. As you will see, one of the basic premises is to dress them in layers, protecting them from the cold and at the same time being able to take clothes off when they are hot and prevent them from sweating.

– Thermal clothing

Start with a T-shirt and thermal tights. They need to fit snug but not tight, otherwise they won’t be able to move freely. Make sure they are breathable so that the garment stays dry at all times. There are tops with high collars, but if they have a neckwear, you won’t need them.

– Anorak and ski trousers

The jacket and trousers should be waterproof so that water doesn’t get through when they fall or play in the snow. If you feel they are not warm enough, you can add a middle layer, such as a polar fleece, between the thermal T-shirt and the anorak. It is very practical that the wrist of the anorak has velcro so that you can adjust the jacket to the arm and keep out the cold. For younger children, you can dress them in ski overalls, which are easier to put on as they have fewer zips and buttons.

– Ski socks

It is essential that their feet are well protected and with the right material to avoid the cold and chafing from the boots.

– Gloves

It’s best to play it safe and have two pairs. Children love to play in the snow, they end up getting them wet, even if they are waterproof. Always carry a second pair with you so they don’t get their little hands wet.

– Goggles

Check that they fit and hold their face well and that they have good visibility for both cloudy and sunny days.

Boards, boots and poles for the little ones

As they are still growing, consider whether you prefer to buy the equipment or rent it, which is also a good solution. Boards, bindings and poles depend on their weight and height and may not be suitable for them from one year to the next.
You can rent or buy ski equipment in the shop of Park Piolets Mountain Hotel&Spa, the 5* hotel that belongs to the same group as the apartaments.

Sun protection

You probably already know this, but it’s worth remembering the importance of applying sun cream and lipstick to protect yourself from the sun. At the chemist’s they will help you find the one that best suits your child’s skin.

Skiing with children in Grandvalira

And now that you’ve got everything ready, all you need to do is put your suitcase in the car and come! In Andorra there are many options for enjoying the snow.
Obviously, the first is skiing. In the ski resorts you’ll find endless possibilities for your children to learn to ski. From schools and classes adapted to their age and level, so that they can get started in this sport or improve their technique. In this article you will find information about skiing with children. But you can also choose from a wide range of activities, we’ll tell you all about them here, so you’ll have a great time!

Don’t wait any longer and book Els Llacs Mountain Apartments with accommodation and ski pass in Grandvalira to enjoy a family ski holiday.

The last skiing moments of the season: ski in spring in Andorra

The ski season isn’t over yet! This year it runs until 16 April, so there’s still time to come skiing in spring. The last months of the season are characterised by higher temperatures, longer and sunnier days, so you’ll have to adapt to the conditions. To continue enjoying the slopes until the last day we give you some tips that we hope you will find useful. It is also important that you plan your getaway well and check the weather before leaving home.

How to ski in spring

To enjoy the snow in April and March you have to bear in mind that the temperatures are higher and the sunshine is more intense than in the first months of the season. As the spring season begins, the snow melt increases and the snow becomes softer. So you will have to adapt to the weather for spring skiing. The watchword is to get up early and take advantage of the early hours of the day when the snow is in the best condition. In the morning the snow is firmer and as the day progresses it becomes softer. Start on the lower slopes and those that are sunnier, and leave the higher slopes and those that get less sun for later in the day, as the snow is better preserved there.

Dress in layers for spring skiing

Even though it’s getting warmer, don’t get overconfident… remember you’re in the mountains. The weather changes frequently, the temperature varies during the day and you’re at a higher altitude. If you want to ski in spring or enjoy snow activities, it’s best to dress in layers. In the morning it is much colder, but by midday the sun is warmer. So ideally you should be able to take off pieces of clothing to avoid sweating.

– On the body

Choose a lighter outer jacket as well as a mid-layer. Zipped clothes help to ventilate and help you to last longer in them. For the close-to-body area, wear a moisture-wicking garment to avoid sweating.

– On the head and neck

Wearing a helmet is compulsory, but a hat or ski straps may not be necessary. For the neck you can wear a lighter garment that will still protect you from the cold in the early hours of the morning and that you can keep in your pocket when it gets warmer.

– Goggles

Of course, goggles are essential all season and even more so in these months when the sun reflects much more on the snow.

– Gloves

Although the thermometer starts to rise, don’t leave them at home, because they also protect you from the sun. If you prefer, you can choose thinner gloves that will make you sweat less.

Els Llacs and ski pass offer

You’ll love coming skiing in spring, and you’ll see that you’ll get a better price than at other times of the season… And even more if you take advantage of our offer with accommodation and ski pass in Grandvalira 😉. You are guaranteed a 10% discount if you book through our website.

So now that you know what it’s like to ski in spring in Andorra, all you need to do is choose your flat and book with the ski pass.

The slogan “What winter do you want to experience?” launches Grandvalira Resorts’ new winter season. In today’s post, we tell you all the news so that you’ll have everything ready for 2 December. 

Grandvalira Resorts and the unique Andorra Pass ski pass

Grandvalira Resorts is born, a new brand that brings together all the resorts in the country: Grandvalira, Pal Arinsal and Ordino Arcalís. However, each of them retains its own features and distinguishing characteristics. With the new union, from this season onwards you will be able to ski all the slopes with a single ski pass. The Andorra Pass is the season ski pass to ski the more than 300 kilometres of Andorran slopes, and you can also do so with the multi-day ski pass. 

New snow activities coming up

Grandvalira is planning new activities, one of which will be the creation of a giant ice and snow slide down which large doughnuts will slide. For the moment, the opening date has not been confirmed, although we already know the location, which will be in the Les Abelletes area in the Pas de la Casa sector. It will surely be a very fun activity, as we are used to from the resort. 

Sports competitions calendar 

Make a note of these dates and experience first-hand the great sporting events that will take place in Grandvalira during the 2022-23 winter season.  

– Alpine skiing World Cup Finals

The Avet slopes in the Soldeu sector and Àliga in the El Tarter sector will host the finals of the men’s and women’s alpine skiing World Cup for the second time in their history. It will take place from 13 to 19 March 2022, just 5 minutes by car from the flats. 

– KTM Cup Finals

The fastest skiers in the world will meet on the Riberal de Grau Roig piste on 29 and 30 March. Grandvalira has already hosted several competitions of this type and in 2017 the piste record was reached with 199.56 kilometres per hour.

– Freeride World Tour

Ordino Arcalís will once again host a Freeride competition from 30 January to 5 February in both men’s and women’s skiing and snowboarding. The junior competition will take place on the 5th and 6th.  

Electronic music festival 

Another event that could take place this winter on the Grandvalira snowfields is an electronic music festival coinciding with the dates of the Alpine skiing World Cup finals. We are awaiting confirmation of the event, but if there is a rumor there must be something to it.

The management company of the Soldeu and El Tarter sectors has been the first in the country to receive the “Llum Verda” (green light) seal awarded by the Andorran electricity company FEDA (Forces Electriques d’Andorra). With this certificate, the Soldeu and El Tarter sectors guarantee that the energy they consume is 100% of renewable origin.

cirque-du-soleil

In July 2022, Cirque du Soleil is back in Andorra with a new show

By now, you’ve probably heard that Cirque du Soleil is coming back this summer with a new show. It’s called MŪV and it will only be available in Andorra. It’s one of the most eagerly awaited big events of the season, especially because we haven’t been able to enjoy it for two years. So we are already counting the days to see the new production of the Canadian company.

In this article we tell you everything we know about MŪV.

 

Relive the magic of Cirque du Soleil

Music is the storyline of the new show created by the Canadian company through the adaptation of great pop and rock hits. The story revolves around two worlds that are separated from each other, until one of their citizens decides to bring them all together by using music as a link. The audience will be an important part of the show and will be involved in the plot.

Of course, MŪVwill offer the great performances of acrobatics and impossible pirouettes we are used to from Cirque du Soleil. In this edition we will be able to see break dance and hip hop choreographies combined with skateboarding, aerial pole dance, bungee with ropes, slackline and parallel bars.

And that’s all we can say for the moment!

 

MŪV’s incredible staging

To make us relive its magic, Cirque du Soleil has an incredible set design that will make you part of the action. The set is inspired by the atmosphere of big cities. The two worlds will be separated and placed one on each side of the audience to end up linked by a circular walkway, on the central stage, creating the sensation that the audience is part of the story.

The lighting is also a very important element of the show’s scenography and will feature lighting reminiscent of nightclubs. The changes of light will follow the rhythms of the songs, adapting the colour, intensity and energy.

The costumes will be in keeping with the staging, with an urban and eccentric style. Each world will be dressed in a different one, with different colours. 

 

When will Cirque du Soleil take place?

As usual, July is the month chosen to enjoy Cirque du Soleil in Andorra. A total of 22 performances will take place from Tuesday to Saturday, from 2 to 30 July, with a special show on Sunday 31 July.

MŪV starts at 10pm and lasts one hour, although you can arrive early to avoid last-minute queues, as the venue will open earlier and there will be a 1-hour pre-show.

 

Where can you see MŪV in Andorra?

This year a new covered space has been set up, close to the old one. Specifically in the Prada Casadet car park, in front of the Government building in Andorra la Vella. The venue has a capacity for 5,000 people, both seated and standing. It also has a restaurant area where you can buy drinks and food.

 

Els Llacs Mountain Apartments with Cirque du Soleil offer

To see MŪV you only have to book our offer with the night in one of our mountain apartaments and the ticket with reserved and numbered seat. In addition to the show, you can also enjoy beautiful views from the balcony of the accommodation. As well as the spa which is included in the price.

Combine your visit to Andorra to see Cirque du Soleil with excursions to the mountains or with the activities of the summer adventure parks. At Els Llacs Mountain Apartments we manage and process your bookings so that you don’t have to worry about anything.

 

This summer will be very special, because the most awaited show is coming back.

Don’t miss it!

And if you want more: we suggest the mountain spa at the Park Piolets Mountain&Spa Hotel, located in Soldeu and from our same chain. Discover its water circuit, the outdoor jacuzzi surrounded by nature and an extensive menu of massages and duo massage treatments.

Valentine’s Day plans for foodies

For gastrolovers, any occasion is a good time to try new flavours.

So we suggest you discover the Kao Soldeu restaurant at the Park Piolets Mountain&Spa Hotel. Its setting, location and exotic flavours make it ideal for an occasion like Valentine’s Day. And afterwards, there’s nothing more chic than a drink in front of the fire on the outdoor terrace of the Moët Terrace.

Another great plan to match the occasion is a high-end dinner in a restaurant on the slopes. The experience alone is worth the effort just to go up and down the slopes on ratraks, mountain skis or snowshoes under the moonlight and accompanied by the stars. Tip: take advantage of a full moon to make it even more spectacular.

For ski lovers

The highlight of winter is skiing and it’s a must for snow lovers. Make the most of Valentine’s Day to enjoy your passion as a couple. Els Llacs Mountain Apartments are located in front of Grandvalira, which you can reach with our transfer and start skiing through the newest access to the resort, the Peretol, inaugurated for the 2019-2020 season. Don’t worry if you leave anything at home, in our ski shop you can buy or rent ski equipment.
