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.

Andorra Shopping Festival

The Andorra Shopping Festival is back

Once again this year the most eagerly awaited event of the autumn is back: the Andorra Shopping Festival. Itinerant shows, open-air concerts and activities for young and not so young are waiting for you as you go shopping in downtown Andorra from the 4th to the 20th of November. 
Today we tell you about all the activities you’ll find at the shopping festival. 

The Andorra Shopping Festival takes to the streets 

Over three weekends a variety of concerts and shows will be held on the main shopping streets. 
On Saturdays from 7 p.m. onwards, after-shopping sessions are scheduled with Andorran groups and singers. Take the opportunity to get to know the country’s music scene while you enjoy a drink in one of the bars in the capital’s old town.
You can also attend concerts held in different venues in the centre of Escaldes and Andorra la Vella on Fridays and Saturdays. There are a wide variety of proposals such as 80s covers, a tribute to Raffaella Carra or British rock covers, among others, as well as DJ sessions. 
The street entertainment will be completed by parades of original travelling shows that will liven up the afternoons and mornings of the weekends. 

Kids at home will have a great time

The Andorra Shopping Festival is for the whole family. So the little ones will also take part in the shopping festival with a host of children’s activities. Families can’t miss the shows aimed at the little ones, such as the Cinderella and Coco musicals. They will also be able to create their own puppets, key rings, snow globes or decorate pencils in the workshops that have been organised especially for them. 

And there are also workshops for adults!

Put yourself in the hands of experts in the express make-up areas where they will advise you with tips and tricks for you to apply yourself in your day-to-day life. Personalise your totebag and give it a new life by changing its appearance thanks to stamping, sewing or trimming techniques. Or create your own bracelet with the help of a jeweller who will guide you and help you to make the most of the artist in you.
And while you stroll and shop, you can stop at the stand of Café el Conseller to have one of their coffee and tea drinks or try their new products, or visit the Andorran producers’ stand to sample some of the products of the Andorran land. 

The gastronomic days also return

The dates of the Andorra Shopping Festival match those of the culinary days where you can sample the dishes selected for the occasion. Andorra’s restaurants offer menus ranging from €30 to €45 which usually have a common local ingredient. Andorra a Taula” starts at the same time as the Andorra Shopping Festival, but in this case it is extended for another week, until 27 November. A new feature this year is the chance to try the dishes in the form of tapas for just €5, accompanied by a beer. 

Art is represented at the Andorra Shopping Festival

As in other editions, this year there is also a place for the performing arts. This time they enter some of Andorra’s museums to perform “De Ferro i Fang” (of Iron and Mud), a work of music and dance that will show you that the natural world and modernity are two pillars that make up the identity of the Principality of Andorra.
This piece can be enjoyed at the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the CAEE, the Motorcycle and Electricity Museum and the Casa Cristo. Admission is free but you will have to book as seating is limited. 

Come and celebrate autumn at the Andorra Shopping Festival and have fun with all the activities programmed while you go shopping.
The guarantee that you will enjoy a good rest surrounded by mountains in a quiet area is on us in our flats Els Llacs
See you there?

Traditional autumn gastronomy 

In Andorra you can eat well all year round, but autumn is one of the seasons that gives us the most fruits of the earth with which to prepare delicious recipes. If you are a super foodie, don’t miss any of the succulent seasonal dishes based on mushrooms (such as chanterelles, boletus or perrechicos), stews based on game such as wild boar or chamois, or grilled meat or trout. The best way to enjoy traditional Andorran cuisine is in a Borda. Many of Andorra’s typical restaurants are located in these unique buildings where livestock used to be kept, and which have been exquisitely refurbished to become the perfect place to enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner. Combine these culinary delights with a hiking route, or you can even go mushroom hunting in the forest. 

Made in Andorra

Delight yourself with Andorra’s products with designation of origin. Taste the cured meats made in the country, the different varieties of cheese, the 100% natural jams that do not lose their fruity flavour, honey harvested 100% in the country or the chocolate produced in Andorra’s only factory. You can also enjoy different varieties of beers and traditional liqueurs, among others. In addition, some local producers also offer the chance to visit the place where they produce these local delicacies. So don’t miss out on a visit as soon as possible.  

An experience for all the senses

Andorra also boasts the production of high altitude wine. There are currently 4 wineries between 1,000 and 1,200 metres above sea level: Borda Sabaté, Casa Auvinyà, Casa Beal and Celler Mas Berenguer. Almost all the wineries offer guided tours of their facilities, which are very popular with wine lovers. 

Restaurants in Andorra to suit all tastes

As we said at the beginning, in Andorra you will find a good number of restaurants, with the option of a daily menu or à la carte, market cuisine, international cuisine, tapas… And also options to suit all tastes, with vegan or gluten-free menus. Eating in Andorra is easy and you won’t have to travel far to find a good place to eat, whether you’re going to enjoy a day in the mountains, going shopping or going to one of the monuments you’re visiting.  

So now you know… this autumn, liven up your getaway with culinary stops and try all kinds of dishes in Andorra’s restaurants. 

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!

Catering for lunches and dinners

If you don’t want to depend on timetables for your meals, the best thing to do is to sleep in flats on your holidays in Andorra, as you have more freedom, but that doesn’t mean you have to cook every day! For this reason you can order the catering dishes, which we prepare at the Park Piolets hotel and bring them to you so that you don’t have to travel.

 

Spa with mountain views

Take a moment to bathe in the Park Spa Mountain Wellness Club, ideal for relaxing while you contemplate the views. Accompany the water circuit with a relaxing massage to get rid of the stress of everyday life or to recover from a day of mountain activities.

The hotel is located in Soldeu, just 2 minutes by car from the mountain flats, and in addition to the spa, it also has a hairdressing and beauty centre. At the Green Salon you can change your look or get a pedicure to show off your feet in summer.
