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.

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.

Book our flat offer with ski pass.

For those who want to live new experiences

If you want to take advantage of any getaway to try new activities, you are also in the right place, because here you can find unique Valentine’s Day plans. Book a night in one of our holiday flats Els Llacs with a snowshoeing excursion to discover the snowy forests of Grandvalira. Or go mushing, dog sledding or snowmobiling and get your adrenaline pumping.

Check our offers with activities here.

For those who don’t miss a festival

The Andorra Mountain Music Winter Edition will be held on Saturdays from 5 February to 5 March. A live electronic music festival that brings together the best names on the electronic music scene with Tiësto, Don Diablo, Timmy Trumpet, Martin Garrix and Afrojack.

Buy your ticket and come and sleep in a unique setting.

For those who love shopping

In Andorra you can also enjoy the best shopping and take advantage of the winter sales where you’ll find the best prices on top brands. You can go to the centre in Andorra la Vella and Escaldes or go up to Pas de la Casa, which is closer, and you’ll also find everything you need.

Snow activities to enjoy the winter in Grandvalira

Write down the following snow activities you can do in Grandvalira in winter on your wish list. Some of them are very close to Els Llacs Mountain Apartments and in the other sectors of the ski resort. One thing is for sure: you’ll have just as much fun as skiing and you’ll be able to combine them with your favourite sport. What’s more, most of them can be done with your family, friends or partner… and all season long.  

You’ll love them!

 

Mushing: one of the most popular snow activities of the year

If you haven’t yet had the experience, make the most of this season to do it. Rediscover spectacular landscapes in Grandvalira through routes through the forest while comfortably seated on a sled pulled by dogs. The sledge is for two people and you can choose from 2, 3 or 5 kilometre excursions. And you can even end up driving along with the musher (the sledge guide). You can choose the adventure circuits in Grau Roig, the sector of Grandvalira that is closest to the flats, or more family itineraries to do with children from 3 years old in El Tarter (here the sledges are for up to 4 people).

Book mushing with Els Llacs Mountain Apartments on our website and get a 10% early booking discount and 10% discount for booking on the website.

 

Explore the forests of Grandvalira on snowshoes

There are a large number of signposted snowshoe itineraries outside the traditional ski slope circuits. You will go through the woods on these routes, which this year have been completed with 5 routes that allow you to do a circular route of 23 kilometres and 850 metres of vertical drop. In the Grau Roig, Encamp and Pas de la Casa sectors of Grandvalira, you’ll find routes for all levels.

Take advantage of our offer of accommodation and 2-hour snowshoeing excursion and get a 10% discount for early booking and another 10% discount for booking through our website.

 

Snowmobiling: also at night

Explore the snowy landscapes on a snowmobile in the snowy forests of Grau Roig, together with a guide. The excursions are from 30 minutes to 1 hour. This is one of the snow activities that you can do with children from 6 years old, but they must be on a two-seater motorbike and accompanied by an adult.

From this winter onwards, experience a snowmobile excursion at night in Grau Roig or a change of scenery in the Pas de la Casa sector. You’ll have a great time!

 

Skiing before the rest is a real pleasure

Grandvalira offers you the “First Snow”, an activity that will allow you to experience first-hand the sensation of skiing before anyone else. You’ll have the slopes all to yourself. You’ll just have to get up a little earlier, as the meeting point is at 8am, in the El Tarter sector. As a reward, it also includes breakfast.  It takes place on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the season, conditions permitting. You’ll want to come again!

 

Après-ski… skiing

And if you start the day skiing before the others, you can also end it skiing until the last minute. The only slope that is open for skiing when the rest are closed is La Solana /Tubs, in the Pas de la Casa sector. You can ski from 17h30 to 20h00 under the lights of the slope that opens on Thursdays and Saturdays. Moreover, it is included in the price of the ski pass, whether it is a day, multi-day or season ski pass.

 

On our website you will find offers with ski pass to Grandvalira, snowshoeing or mushing excursion and nights in the holiday flats Els Llacs. For the rest of the snow activities we can inform you about prices and availability and make the booking when you contact us. You just worry about coming, we’ll take care of the rest 😉.

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.

 

Now you know!

Now you can book through our website with a 15% discount for advance sales and 10% web exclusive. See you this winter?

Llacs

An alternative autumn getaway in Andorra

Autumn is here! Still no plans to enjoy a well-deserved getaway? We suggest an alternative route around Andorra, ideal for getting away from the crowds and discovering the lesser-known corners of our 7 parishes.

  1. The hidden secrets of Canillo

The parish of Canillo is where the Els Llacs tourist flats are located. The first route is to discover the Toll Bullidor, a natural waterfall near Meritxell, along an easily accessible hiking route.

Another interesting place to discover during an autumn long weekend is the motorbike museum, located in the Canillo cable car. It has a permanent exhibition of more than 120 pieces, some of which are unique and the oldest is from 1896. Without a doubt, two activities you can do with your children.

  1. Shopping in Encamp

We continue on to the next parish: Encamp. Here we suggest you go shopping in Pas de la Casa. If you don’t know it because you always stay in the centre, the location of our holiday flats is a good excuse to visit this village on the border with France. It is closer than Escaldes and Andorra la Vella and it is an open-air shopping centre with all the products you can imagine at the foot of the slopes.

What’s more, if you access Pas de la Casa via the Envalira pass, you’ll enjoy incredible views and landscapes.

  1. Ordino in autumn is even more beautiful

You probably already know the Ordino iron route, but we can’t fail to recommend it because it is especially beautiful in autumn. In addition to the sculptures, the borda and the Romanesque bridge along the route, it’s worth it for the scenery, from where you can admire the changing colours of the season to perfection. The itinerary is very accessible, so set aside an afternoon to visit it.

  1. A very sweet visit to La Massana

In La Massana you will find the only chocolate factory in Andorra: Xocland, where this delicious food is produced and processed in the factory located in the centre of the village. This is a visit not to be missed for lovers of chocolate in all its forms, as you’ll see the entire production process from bean to finished product up close. Of course, it is also a great place to go with the little ones in the house.

  1. Autumn is ideal for rediscovering the capital city

We are now heading down towards the central parishes of the Principality. We suggest a very simple panoramic route on the Rec del Solà, an itinerary at the foot of the Carroi peak from where you can see the whole of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany. At the end of the route you can go down to the historic centre of the capital to have a drink and get your strength back.

  1. Sant Julià de Lòria, the lesser-known one

In this parish you will find the Juberri gardens, a peculiar space where you will see a multitude of giant sculptures. Mostly of animals, but you will also see fountains and miniature models of Romanesque churches in the country. It is very well kept and the views over the valley are spectacular.

  1. The Escaldes hot springs

We’re sure you’ve heard of Caldea many times: but do you know about its Private Spa? It is a space for private use with a maximum capacity for 4 people with a jacuzzi, sauna, contrast showers and relaxation areas, where you can also enjoy a couple’s massage. This plan is only for couples and we recommend that you make a reservation beforehand.

These different and original things to do in Andorra in autumn are ideal to combine with the peace and quiet of staying at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. Check the flat you like the most and book it with the 3×2 offer, which is also available for the long weekends in October, you stay 3 nights and only pay for 2!

Discover 3 hiking routes in Andorra

Make the most of your summer holidays in Andorra. Very close to the Els Llacs Mountain Apartments you have an endless number of routes to enjoy hiking. Some are easier and others not so easy… but there are options for all levels, to do with children or for the more experienced hikers.  One thing is clear, you will discover the exuberant nature of the Andorran mountains and breathe fresh air while you exercise. So, for you to have a great time this summer, here are 3 hiking routes in Andorra. And as an extra, 1 cycling route, for those of you who love cycling.

A fun route for the whole family

We start with a very picturesque hiking track in Andorra, close to the flats and ideal to do with children: the Gall path. You can start in Canillo, at the Telecabina car park, or in the opposite direction from Soldeu. The itinerary is signposted and there are signs explaining the fauna and flora that you will come across, as well as the views. The path runs parallel to main road 2, so you can take it or leave it at various points. It also has several bridges (one of them Tibetan), a tunnel and a group of bordas (typical Andorran houses), elements that enrich the route. It owes its name to the fact that it is the habitat of capercaillies; in fact, the signposts are made of wood and marked with a red cockerel. It is a fun and accessible route for children.

Discovering the new Tristaina solar viewpoint

This summer Andorra has opened a new viewpoint in Arcalís. What makes it so special is its originality, as it is a circular structure on top of the Peyreguils peak at 2,701 metres. It is also a sundial in homage to the sundial mountain of Arcalís. From here the views are impressive over the Tristaina lakes, the rest of the peaks and the whole valley.

The excursion on foot (about 15 minutes) is well worth it, for the scenery and the contact with nature. But also to put the icing on the cake at the end of the walking route in Andorra by being able to contemplate the landscape from the new viewpoint. To get there you have to go to the Ordino-Arcalís resort. The route starts at the Coma car park near the chairlift, heading towards Creussans lake and continues to Creussans pass, ending at Peyreguils peak. If you wish, you can go up by cable car and chairlift (the ride takes 5 and 15 minutes respectively), finishing with a walk of another 15 minutes.

High altitude trekking route in Andorra

Finally, we leave you with a more difficult route that will take you to the highest peak in the Principality: Comapedrosa, at 2942 metres. The route requires a good physical preparation as it covers 14 kilometres (outward and return), with a difference in altitude of 1,300 metres and some more complicated sections. The ascent starts in Arinsal, crossing the Comapedrosa Valleys nature reserve, a protected natural area since 2006. Along the way you will be able to appreciate the changes in vegetation, passing through red and black pine forests, meadows and some lakes. 

Extra: a cycle touring route for road bikes

If you like trekking in Andorra but you’re more of a fan of cycling, you’re also in the right place. You can choose from 21 cycling routes categorised by level of difficulty. The one we’ll tell you about today is medium level: it starts in the village of Canillo and ends in El Forn, near the Grandvalira adventure activity centre. It is 5.2 kilometres long and has an average gradient of 388 metres. It is undoubtedly a good alternative to continue discovering new landscapes while cycling.

For you to enjoy the experience even more this summer at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments you have the bike included in your stay. Check our offers and choose the one you prefer, with road bike, MTB or e-bike.

These are some of the hiking routes you can do in summer in Andorra, although there are many more to do on foot or by bike. Do not hesitate to contact us to make your reservation or ask for more information.

Safe tips for travelling with a pet in summer

Travelling with a pet doesn’t have to be complicated if you plan well. If, like most of our customers, you are also travelling by car, here are a few simple recommendations to ensure you have a happy journey.

 

Tips for travelling by car with a pet this summer

If you want to enjoy yourself from the first minute, follow these tips. Travelling by car with your pet will be much easier and you will start your long-awaited summer holidays in the best way possible:

– Before setting off on your journey you will have to decide how you want your pet to travel, as for safety reasons it cannot travel loose in the car. You can choose whether you want to harness your pet (the two-hook harness is safer) or put it in a carrier.  If you have enough space, you can also place a separator grid between the boot and the rear seats of your vehicle.

– During the journey, it is important that your pet can be hydrated frequently, especially in summer when temperatures are higher.   

– It is advisable to stop every two hours so that your four-legged friend can have a break from the car and take a walk. It is also good for the rest of your travel companions, to clear your minds and get some fresh air.

Plan your trip well and look for the best service areas to ensure quality stops. Prioritise those with pet-friendly areas, restaurants, open spaces or playgrounds if you are travelling with children.

– Inside the car you can put the air conditioning on, but always keep your pet away from the exits so that it doesn’t catch a cold.

– To avoid motion sickness and unpleasant situations, it is advisable for your pet to eat two hours before the trip so that it is fasting during the journey.

– If your dog is travelling by car for the first time or is not very used to the car, you should help it to adapt a few days beforehand by travelling a few shorter distances. 

– Don’t forget your pet’s documentation because you will need to have it when you travel. Here are the requirements you need to take into account to bring your pet to Andorra.

 

What does your pet need to come to Andorra?

Pets (dogs, cats and ferrets) from the European Union must be identified with a microchip, be vaccinated against rabies and have a pet passport. If they are from outside the European Union, they must also have a certificate of good health and pass customs control on arrival in Andorra. You can obtain all the information directly from the Department of Foreign Affairs of the Andorran Government.

 

At Els Llacs Mountain Apartments we are pet friendly!

We love to see you arrive one more summer accompanied by your four-legged friend. For us it is very important that all members of the family can enjoy their holidays. For this reason, pets are welcome at Els Llacs. Our holiday flats are spacious and comfortable so that everyone has their own space.

We are in Bordes de Envalira, very close to Grandvalira, where you can make the most of the activities on offer this summer. The location is ideal for enjoying walks in the mountains and going out to play with your dog in the open air, surrounded by nature.

So if you are thinking of travelling with your pet this summer, this is the best alternative. You just have to let us know when you make your booking and follow these rules of coexistence during your holidays at Els Llacs flats.

 

And you, do you have any other advice for our customers who travel by car with a pet in summer? Leave us a comment so that they can apply it on their next holiday and contact us if you need more information about our accommodations.

Mountain trails and MTB tracks await you.

You’ll enjoy mountain biking in all its variations. Whether you’re a lover of mountain trails or downhill tracks. You’ll discover incredible landscapes while putting yourself to the test.

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, we recommend Vallnord, where you’ll find one of the most spectacular mountain bike parks in the Pyrenees. It has 29 circuits of different levels and modalities, including: enduro, Pump Track, Cross Country, Wood Park and Four Cross. There are a total of 40 kilometres for mountain biking and also for beginners. It also has 3 children’s rides so that you can share your favourite hobby with your children.

 

Enjoy the best cycling in Andorra

Cycle through the country’s most legendary mountain passes – in total you’ll be able to climb up to 21! Dare to emulate the great cyclists of the Tour de France or the Vuelta a España by following the stages of these sporting events. Can you imagine climbing the Envalira pass and then going on to the Coll de la gallina at the other end of the country? If you are a lover of this sport, you know exactly what we are talking about. The roads are perfectly asphalted and signposted. They are ready to welcome you with your road bike.

We suggest a cycling route in Andorra which, apart from being one of the best known by cyclists, is also very beautiful. It starts in Canillo, the same valley where the appartments are located, on the road to Montaup and takes you to the Coll de Ordino. You will be at the foot of the third highest peak in the Principality: the Casamanya, and you can also make a quick stop at the Coll del Quer viewpoint.

 

Make the most of your holidays by riding an electric bike

If you have already discovered this activity, we also offer it to you with your stay in the holiday flats Els Llacs.

You can enjoy beautiful mountain trails or go to the Vallnord Bike Park where you will find circuits suitable for e-bikes and discover new landscapes. The circuits are signposted and go from Pla de la Caubella in the ski resort of Pal to Coll de la Botella.

The routes are suitable for all levels and are signposted.

 

Bike Friendly Apartments with the best location

We are ready to welcome you with everything you need for your cycling holidays. At the Els Llacs Mountain Apartments you’ll find a guarded room with a camera where you can store your bikes safely.

And when you finish your day on two wheels you can enjoy a bath in the outdoor jacuzzi of our spa to recover.
