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!

During the day you will have time to visit the country, explore the nature around the flats, discover its wonderful gastronomy, go shopping or take a bath in the spa. And from 18h onwards, you can go to the festival, which is only a 2-minute drive away from the flats.

So that you can enjoy a complete festival getaway, we suggest you an offer that includes entrance to Andorra Mountain Music and the night at Els LLacs Moutain Apartments. All you have to do is choose the date and make your reservation! But make up your mind soon because places are limited 😉.

Health and safety measures are still in place

We want you to have a good time, but we are also concerned about your safety. That’s why at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments we have up-to-date anti-virus measures that we have adopted following the recommendations of the country’s health authorities.

The Andorra Mountain Music will also implement a series of health and safety regulations to prevent covid-19 infections. You can read them here.

This summer is coming full of emotions and great experiences. You are just one click away from living them again.

Book now your offer with Els Llacs flats and entrance to the festival.

The best spas in Andorra for your Easter getaway

Easter is just around the corner. So that you can make the most of your 4-day getaway, we have prepared a list of the spas in Andorra that you can’t miss.

Can you think of a better plan to relax during these 4 days?

 

Park Spa Mountain Wellness Club

In Soldeu, very close to our apartaments, you will find the 4-star Park Piolets hotel, which is part of our group of properties. It has a spa with spectacular views of the mountains, which you can access to enjoy its water area and treatments.

The facilities, unbeatable and brand new in 2019, have a water circuit with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, hammam, multiple water jets and an outdoor jacuzzi from where you can watch breathtaking sunsets. Both the gym and the hairdressing and beauty centre are also public and you can make an appointment to change your look or get a manicure. To complete the experience and get away from it all, we suggest you to book a massage or treatment from the menu – you won’t regret it!

If you are travelling with children, this is also the perfect plan. The hotel has arranged a special timetable so that families can enjoy the spa with children from birth onwards. 

The good weather and the longer days are the perfect excuse to go to the spa. Are you in?

 

Caldea: one of Andorra’s must-visit spas

Of course, a visit to the thermal centre is a must on your getaway. This Easter, we recommend that you get a ticket to Inúu, the Caldea spa for over 16s. Choose the time of day you want to visit the centre from morning, afternoon or evening and disconnect in the thermal water baths and jacuzzis. You’ve been waiting for your dose of wellness as a couple! Combine it with a massage or beauty treatment and make the most of the experience.

For families there is the Thermoludic, which you can enter with children from 5 years old. A good time to discover the world of thermalism with them (but you’ll have to wait a little longer to visit, as it will be closed at Easter due to the pandemic).

Although Caldea is one of the spas in Andorra that is located right in the centre, it is also surrounded by mountains and the views are still a real attraction.

 

Appartments with spa

And if that wasn’t enough, at Els Llacs you have the chance to relax without leaving our facilities. Our appartments have a spa overlooking the mountain, super quiet, ideal to include in the route of the spas of Andorra and rest after a day of outdoor activities. There is also a gym so you can keep up with your daily exercise routines – just take the lift to get there!

 

Enjoy Easter in the open air

Our tour of Andorra’s best spas is 100% compatible with other outdoor activities. With the anti-covid regulations in place, Andorra is a destination you can come to this Easter holiday. Get out of your routine during these 4 days, when the rising temperatures remind us that spring has arrived and invites us to take a walk and enjoy the mountains.

Remember, there is no curfew here and the shops and restaurants are open, of course, complying with all safety regulations to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
