We’re already looking forward to the Easter long weekend and we’re sure you are too. There are 4 days off to disconnect from routine and enjoy family experiences. And what better way to make the most of them than in the snow and end the ski season in style.
We have 5 fun snow activities for you that you will love to do with your family and that you can complement perfectly with your ski day on the slopes.
1. Become an igloo builder
Have you ever wondered how igloos are made?
During the whole season, including Easter, Grandvalira offers you an ideal activity for families where, young and old, you will work as a team to build an igloo. You will be taught the different techniques to adapt them to the state of the snow and you will build your own igloo which you will be able to visit inside and feel as if you were in the North Pole. This proposal is available very close to Els Llacs Mountain Apartments in the Grau Roig activity centre.
2. Have fun on the Magic Gliss
The Magic Gliss is a giant slide located in the Family Park in the Canillo sector of Grandvalira. With a 555-metre descent and 180 metres of ascent, it can reach speeds of up to 40 km/h. If you want to make it even more amazing, try it with virtual reality goggles. As well as enjoying the ride, you’ll be able to see the recreation of typical Andorran animals and the mythological Tamarros. Children will have a great time, but adults will also be surprised.
3. Enjoy new experiences at Easter
Without leaving the Family Park in Canillo, don’t miss the chance to discover the snowy landscapes of Grandvalira from a bird’s eye view as you fly over the Forn Lake. Get your adrenaline pumping on the zip line, where you can slide sitting down, stretched out or in tandem with your child. The route is 550 metres long, at a height of 40 metres and can reach 80 km/h.
Spending the day at the Family Park is also a good option as it has a wide range of activities, especially for children, and a restaurant where you can stop for lunch to recharge your batteries. Access is via the cable car from the village of Canillo.
4. Sledging down the Soldeu slopes
The Snake Gliss is another activity worth trying at least once in your life. You will slide down on an articulated sledge guided by a monitor, from El Pla de Espiolets to the village of Soldeu, crossing the slopes of Astoret, Os and Bosc Fosc. Best of all: it takes place when the resort is closed, from 17:30 onwards. The Easter long weekend is a good time to do this snow activity as the days are longer and we can enjoy more daylight hours.
5. Get your adrenaline pumping with a snowmobile excursion.
This activity is a classic and you may even have already done it. In any case, you’ll never get tired of going through the forests of Grandvalira on a snowmobile. Enjoy it as a couple or with your child (children must be accompanied by an adult) and choose between day or night excursions. For children, the Kids Forest in Grau Roig has a special snowmobile circuit for them, where they can drive their own snowmobile.
Grandvalira’s activities are close to Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. An ideal accommodation for families in its comfortable, spacious and well-equipped flats. Visit our website and book your getaway for Easter.
