puente de fin de año

Are you ready for a unique experience to end the year? Andorra is known for its breathtaking mountain scenery and friendly atmosphere. And of course, during the festive season it is the ideal destination. If you want to know why; read on and we’ll reveal the best plans to spend the New Year’s long weekend in Andorra. We propose a getaway to start 2024 in the snow in the best way possible.

Start the year on the slopes

Wake up in a mountain apartment with views to the slopes and just a few metres from the access to Grandvalira. Prepare yourself a delicious breakfast, load your boards, boots and the rest of your ski equipment in the car, get to the resort quickly and ski – it’s as easy as that! On the first day of the year 2024, your first act will be skiing in Grandvalira. 😊
But to make sure everything is ready, don’t forget to buy your ski pass beforehand. Book your flat with ski pass in advance and don’t let anything ruin your big day.

Eat your grapes with a view of the snow-capped mountains.

Or celebrate it your way! Do you know what the advantage of staying in a flat is? You won’t be tied to a pre-established menu or restrictive schedules. You will be able to prepare whatever you feel like during the whole New Year’s Eve long weekend and New Year’s Eve as well. In addition, you will only be surrounded by your loved ones.
However, we have just one small recommendation: don’t forget to buy chocolate with churros to start the year in the sweetest way! 😉

The New Year’s long weekend is also a time for shopping

Unlike in Spain, where the sales start after Christmas, in Andorra they start on the first Friday before Christmas. So from 22 December you can go shopping and buy whatever you like at the best price. From electronics to prestigious fashion brands, sports clothing and equipment, cosmetics and perfumery. In all the shops you will see signs with discounts and promotions. However, remember that 1 January is one of the few days when shops do not open their doors, and on 31 December they will close their shutters a little earlier. So you will have to leave this activity for the days before.
But don’t worry, there are more proposals for the 1st of January.

Après-ski activities for the long weekend at the end of the year

Over the long weekend, you’ll be able to enjoy activities and events designed to make the most of the long weekend, especially on Saturday and Sunday.

– Christmas activities

In Andorra la Vella you can stroll through the Christmas village, ideal if you’re going with young children, as there you’ll find a skating rink, a carousel and travelling shows in the evenings. La Massana has a brand new experience: the Estelàrium. A space with a temporary planetarium where you can see the moon and the solar system through immersive films, and where you can also enjoy food trucks, concerts, shows and workshops. In Canillo you can’t miss the giant nativity scene, with life-size figures distributed all over the town.

– I just want to relax

If you’re still here on 1 January, the best suggestion, of course, is to go skiing in Grandvalira. But afterwards, to complete the day, you can recover your strength in the spa of the flats (included in the price). Or go to Caldea, which also opens on 1 January (we recommend you book in advance).

– The New Year’s concert

Framed under the theme “The colours of Strauss”, the Orquestra Nacional de Cambra d’Andorra (ONCA), conducted by Albert Gumí, will be the star of the New Year’s concert, with the aim of discovering the greatness of Johann Strauss Jr. It will take place on 1 January 2024 at 7 pm in the National Auditorium in Ordino.

Gastronomic plans for the last night of the year

Of course, an excellent way to spend New Year’s Eve is to go out for dinner with family and friends. Andorra’s restaurants offer special menus and, although you’ll find a wide variety of options all over the country, Soldeu is the closest place. The best way to make sure you don’t run out of tables is to choose where you want to go and get in touch to make a reservation beforehand, otherwise you run the risk of being left without a table.


Soldeu also has a good range of bars, restaurants and nightlife, both during the winter season and over the long weekend.

From skiing in the largest resort in the Pyrenees, to relaxing in spas and enjoying the delicious local gastronomy, Andorra has everything you need for a great New Year’s Eve weekend. To make your stay even more special, we suggest you stay at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments, where you can rest and recharge your batteries after a day in the snow.
We assure you that this getaway in Andorra will be a unique gift for you and your family.
