Discover what’s new in Grandvalira for the 2022-23 season

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.

Green light label: a commitment to renewable energies 

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.

December is one of the most eagerly awaited time for most pleople, and Andorra is the ideal destination for many reasons. The main one is that it”s when the ski season starts.
This year the resorts are scheduled to open on 3 December, but there is much more! Whether your thing is snow sports or you prefer to invest your time in other activities, you won’t be bored this December. Here’s everything you can do in Andorra.  

Skiing in Grandvalira

If the weather conditions are fine, it looks like you’ll be skiing since the beginning of December. Take note: this season Grandvalira Resorts is launching a unique ski pass, the Andorra Pass. It allows you to ski on a total of 303 kilometres of slopes in Grandvalira, Pal Arinsal and Ordino Arcalís, with the multi-day ski pass.
This is a good opportunity to improve your skiing technique or get started in a new modality such as snowboarding or freeriding, depending on your level, with individual or group classes. You can also enrol your little ones in ski schools so that they can get started in this sport and you can practise your hobby as a family.  

December is also a time to relax 

Whether you ski or you prefer to spend the whole day taking time for yourself, it is always a good option to find a moment to relax. We suggest several spa alternatives so that you can choose the one you like best: 

– The spa at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments

Our flats are unique for many reasons and one of them is because it has a free spa with two jacuzzis, one of which is outdoors with views of the mountains, hammam and sauna. It also has a gym and massage area (with charge) to finish a day of skiing and snow activities as it deserves.  

– The Park Spa Mountain Wellness Club

If you feel like extending your wellness experience, we suggest the mountain spa of the Park Piolets hotel, which belongs to our same chain and is located at the foot of the Soldeu slopes. 
Enjoy it as an après-ski activity or as a full day activity combining the water circuit with some beauty treatments and relaxing massages. 

– Bathe in the thermal waters of Caldea

If you are travelling as a family with children aged 5 and over, choose the Thermoludic entrance ticket; the youngest, aged 3 and 4, have exclusive access to the Likids children’s spa. If you are travelling as a couple, we recommend that you book at Inúu, the spa for over 16s, whose ticket will also give you access to the Thermoludic and Origins spas. 

Snow activities for the whole family

If you love skiing but you also want to have fun with your family, complement your skiing with snow activities or dedicate a whole day to it. 
Choose among the different proposals that Grandvalira offers you, among which you will find excursions with dog sleds or snowmobiles in the forests near our flats. Another option is to spend a fun time building igloos or sledging down the slopes of Soldeu when they close for skiers. 
Ask about these activities and many more when you book your getaway for the long weekend. 

The first Christmas shopping

Make the most of your break in december! Take the opportunity to do your first Christmas shopping in the commercial centres of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes or in Pas de la Casa, which is closer to our flats. 
While you go shopping and help Santa Claus to choose the presents for the whole family, stroll through the streets decorated with Christmas motifs and stop to recover your strength in the restaurants in downtown.

Discover Andorra on two wheels this summer

It’s time to park your car and get on your bike to make the most of the good weather and ride along mountain paths and mountain passes. If you love two wheels, you’ve come to the right place! Cycling in Andorra has a lot to offer you whether you like cycling on tarmac or on dirt.

Enjoy cycling in Andorra

Summer is for enjoying outdoor activities, nature and the mountains. And what better way to do it than practising sport and cycling in the company of the whole family.

– Road cycling in Andorra

The Principality has no less than 21 mountain passes of different levels with countless routes spread throughout the country. When the good weather arrives, it is very common to see other enthusiasts emulating the riders of the great cycling events by cycling up the mountain passes on road bikes. Els Llacs Mountain Apartments is located in the perfect place to start super interesting routes and just a short distance from the Envalira Pass (2,409 m), the highest pass in the Pyrenees and the stage for the 2021 Tour de France. And best of all, with a bit of luck it won’t be difficult to come across one of the professional cyclists who train regularly in the country. Can you imagine?

– Mountain biking brings you closer to nature

In Andorra you can practise all mountain biking disciplines with your mountain bike on more than 200 kilometres of mountain trails. But also in the Vallnord Bike Park, which hosts the MBT world championships. Enjoy with the whole family, even with small children, as you can choose the route depending on the level of difficulty you are looking for. From spectacular descents to easier and quieter routes that will allow you to get deep into nature. 

– Cycle touring with an electric bicycle

For some time now, e-bikes have also been a permanent fixture in Andorra. It’s a fun and enjoyable way to discover Andorra’s most beautiful landscapes and take mountain trails at your own pace. And all this without being extremely demanding, allowing you to enjoy every minute of your cycling trip, even if the gradient is steep.

 

Accommodation with cycling offers in Andorra

Make the most of your summer holidays to cycle along mountain trails or test yourself on the mountain passes that have seen the fastest cyclists in the Tour de France or the Vuelta a España.

At Els Llacs Mountain Apartments you can book the flat with the bike included in your stay. Choose from our offers if you prefer road bike, MTB or e-bike. Of course, your bike won’t sleep with you, because although our flats are spacious, we also have a cycling room where you can store it in total comfort.

Cycling events in Andorra

In summer the country hosts a multitude of competitions and races, and many of them feature cycling as the protagonist. Here are some of the most important events:

The Andorra 21 Ports by Ironman: from 24 to 26 June 2022, a road bike race takes place through the most important mountain passes in Andorra.

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!

Romantic Valentine’s Day in our mountain apartments

Valentine’s Day can also be romantic in our flats.

February is the month to plan a romantic getaway with your partner and come and see for yourself. We’ll provide you with accommodation and a host of things to do in Andorra. Choose the one you like best and make your own Valentine’s Day.

For the most romantic

If you love Valentine’s Day plans that include the classics: accommodation and spa, this is the place for you. The services we offer are unusual for holiday apartaments.

Relax in the indoor or outdoor jacuzzi spa or spend some time in the sauna and hammam after a day in the snow while enjoying the views of the snowy mountains. You can also book a massage in the apartment.

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.

Skiing with children in Andorra

Ski resorts offer numerous options for skiing with children. At the same time as they learn, they have a great time with other children under the expert guidance of professional instructors. In Grandvalira you’ll find ski schools and snow gardens adapted to their level in almost all sectors, so that they can get started in this world or improve their technique.

 

First contact with the snow

For children from 3 to 6 years old, you will find snow gardens in the sectors of Grau Roig, Soldeu, Pas de la Casa, Canillo, El Tarter and Encamp. Here they will be able to discover the world of skiing or snowboarding, the latter only available in Pas de la Casa.

They start with an adaptation to the environment class and the course usually lasts about two hours in the snow garden itself. The rest of the time is spent playing in the snow or indoors. You can choose between a full day or half day.

 

Ski circuits for skiing with children

Grandvalira has the Kid Program, programmes and circuits for children from 3 to 11 years old with different themes. They combine skiing with other activities such as snowshoeing, igloo building, mini tobogganing or mini snowmobiles, among others, depending on the sector where the classes are held.

Your children will learn skiing techniques with specialised instructors together with other children of their level and age. They last all day and you can choose from 1 to 5 days (you will have to take into account the starting days of the classes as each sector has a different programme).

The resort also offers Top Class Kids from 3 years old, a totally personalised and adapted programme. 

 

Group classes for children

Group ski lessons for 6 to 11 year olds are divided by level and can be either skiing or snowboarding. The classes are 3 hours long and the minimum is 2 days and up to 5 days. They can be booked in all sectors, except for snow lessons for children, which are only available in the Soldeu, El Tarter and Canillo sectors. Please note that this season Grandvalira has introduced a one-day course for beginners: this is a 3-hour course exclusively for children who are just starting out in the world of skiing and is available in the Soldeu and El Tarter sectors.

 

Please note that the ski pass and equipment are not included in the price of the ski schools.

 

Childcare on the slopes for children from 1 year old

If you come with children from 1 year old, you can continue to enjoy your favourite sport while they stay in the Grandvalira kindergartens. They are open every day of the season from 9am to 4.30pm. In the nurseries, children do not have lessons. They are indoors or playing in the snow with monitors. In Grau Roig the nursery welcomes children from 1 to 5 years old and in Canillo, El Tarter and Soldeu, there are kindergartens for children from 2 to 5 years old. Pas de la Casa, Encamp and Peretol do not have kindergartens.

 

Els Llacs Mountain Apartments are perfect for families.

Staying in apartaments when travelling as a family with children is ideal for everyone to have their own space and not be so tied to restaurant or breakfast buffet schedules. If you are travelling with small children it is much more convenient as they need to follow their own routines. At Els LLacs Mountain Apartments you will find many options to suit your family, with different arrangements and with capacity for up to 11 people and even connected flats. In addition, to make your arrival more comfortable, we provide you with a welcome pack with everything you need for the first breakfast and if you wish, you can make the purchase online beforehand. All advantages!

 

This winter come to Grandvalira to ski with your children and if you want them to improve their technique or start skiing or snowboarding you can enrol them in the schools. We can help you with the paperwork, don’t hesitate to contact us.

puente-de-diciembre

Make the most of the opening of the season to ski in Grandvalira

This season is going to be very special: the slopes will be full of skiers once again. Don’t get left behind and be among the first to hit the snow for the December long weekend. Start preparing your equipment and mark the days until the 3rd of December, the date announced by Grandvalira for its opening.

 

Back to skiing in Grandvalira in December

The start of the season is here and the most eagerly awaited for snow lovers who, like you, were unable to ski last year as a precautionary measure against COVID-19. However, this year will be different and if the situation does not worsen, everything points to the fact that we will be able to ski again with more or less normality.

Discover our offers with ski pass in Grandvalira and accommodation in Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. The ski pass gives you access to all the Grandvalira sectors that are connected by ski lifts and chairlifts, and you will be able to access from any of them.

New for the 2021-22 season, with the same pass, you can also ski the Ordino-Arcalís slopes, located in the northern valley of the country.

 

Closer access to the slopes

For the last two seasons, Grandvalira has had a new sector giving access to the domain: the Peretol, located just opposite Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. For skiers’ convenience, the resort has a free shuttle service from 9am to 5pm for all skiers staying at Bordes d’Envalira.

From Peretol you will get to the slopes more quickly and you won’t have to go to Grau Roig or Soldeu if you don’t want to. The Pla de les Pedres chairlift, which has become the longest in Andorra, will take you straight to Funicamp!

Also, if you are a freerider, you can’t miss the snowpark located in this sector, which you can enjoy under the stars as it is open from 15h to 21h.

 

We look forward to seeing you again for the long weekend in December!

Our flats are known to be very spacious (as well as comfortable), but you don’t need to take all your ski equipment with you. To make it easier for you and to avoid you having to carry everything to the flat, we have a ski storage room with camera surveillance, where you can leave your equipment until the next day. You can also use our transfer service to take you to and from the slopes, so that you don’t have to touch the car once it’s parked in the car park. If you prefer, you can also travel light and let experts advise you on how to rent and buy what you need in the Shusski ski equipment shop located in our hotel Park Piolets in Soldeu.

 

This December, we are waiting for you with everything ready for you to enjoy a winter like in the past.

Enjoy the snow with your pet in Andorra

This winter, don’t leave anyone at home and enjoy the holidays with all the members of the family. During the ski season, one of the most fun activities you can do in Andorra with your dog is to go for a walk in the snow. He’ll be super happy jumping and running around in the snowy meadows and forests. What’s more, if you’re travelling with children, it’s an excellent outdoor après-ski activity to enjoy with the whole family when you stay at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments.

 

An ideal location and environment for pets

“Els Llacs” holiday flats are surrounded by mountains and nature, in Bordes de Envarlia, far from the centre and just 2 km from the access to the Soldeu sector of Grandvalira.

The location is perfect for skiing and for coming to Andorra with your dog. At the foot of the building you will find a large meadow where you can go for a quiet walk with your pet or go for a run. In winter, when it’s snowy, it’s great for him to discover the snow and play with it, he’ll have a great time! And you can take lots of funny photos of him too. Dogs generally like snow experiences as it’s something different and out of the ordinary.

Near the appartments, there is a very easy snowshoeing path that goes from El Peretol to the entrance of Soldeu, which you can also take the opportunity to do with your four-legged friend. Along the way, you will discover the impressive landscape that surrounds our accommodation, you will pass through a stretch of forest and follow the course of the river. An ideal occasion to exercise and enjoy it together with your pet. 

 

Recommendations for taking your dog to the snow

Here are a few tips to make your dog’s experience in the snow an incredible one and to ensure he has a great time.

– Protect him from the cold: you will have to keep your dog warm if he is a small breed or short-haired, or if he is still a puppy. If necessary, shorten the walks so that he doesn’t get so cold.

– Take care of their paws: their paw pads are a sensitive part of the body and it is advisable to protect them when they are not used to contact with snow to avoid burns.

– Take water with you so that he drinks and does not eat snow.

– Keep an eye on him at all times: don’t let him go too far away from you, as he can get confused and lost in new terrain.

 

With these tips, going out in the snow with your four-legged friend will be even safer.

 

Your pet-friendly accommodation in Andorra 

After a time out in the snow, there’s nothing better than coming back to one of our flats and warming up with a hot chocolate while you continue to watch the mountain scenery from your window. Moreover, in our comfortable and spacious flats equipped with everything you need, you will find the comfort you need to accommodate the whole family, including your pet. We only ask you to comply with a few small rules of coexistence that you will find here. Also, in this article you can see what requirements you need to come to Andorra with your pet.

The most eagerly awaited dates of the autumn have arrived to enjoy a well-deserved 3-day getaway. The Bank Holiday in November is the ideal time to switch off from your daily routine and relax in Andorra.

 

The Andorra Shopping Festival is back

The All Saints’ Day bank holiday also brings the Andorra Shopping Festival, with entertainment and concerts in the streets. Shops join in the festivities with discounts, special promotions and raffles. The whole family is welcome to come and have a great time in the main shopping areas of the capital and Escaldes. From 29 October to 14 November, and especially at weekends when there are more people, as you stroll through the shopping streets you’ll find concerts, travelling shows, activities for children and much more. It’s the ideal place to do your first Christmas shopping, to renew your wardrobe or to find the latest in technology at the best prices.

The festival is also accompanied by the most eagerly awaited gastronomic days in the country: the Andorra Taula.  The restaurants create special menus based on a theme or an ingredient, usually a local product.

The events usually last until the end of November, so foodies have yet another reason to come this long weekend.

 

Make the most of the long weekend to renew your ski equipment

Grandvalira has announced that it will open the slopes on 3 December. So the All Saints’ Day long weekend is a good time to get ready to start the winter season in style. Before leaving home, check your ski equipment: try on your clothes (including thermals), check your boots, boards, poles, ski goggles, helmet and gloves. So when you come to Andorra you will know exactly what you need to replace or in case you feel like treating yourself. In autumn, the brands start to bring their new products, which you can buy in sports and specialised shops. If you are looking for cheaper options you will find them in the outlets. Remember that apart from going down to the centre, you can also shop in Pas de la Casa, which is closer to Els Llacs Moutain Apartments.

In addition, we prepare a welcome with breakfast on the first day so you can arrive comfortably and have nothing to worry about when you arrive.

 

This November long weekend we are waiting for you with everything ready for you to enjoy a 3-day getaway at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments, your accommodation in Bordes de Envalira.
