The Best Mother’s Day Gift: A Family Getaway

This year, celebrate Mother’s Day in the most original way. The first Sunday in May is approaching and by now, you must be wondering what could make her happy. Forget about typical gifts and extend the day to a weekend celebration. Plan a family getaway and enjoy the best spring activities in Andorra. We propose a different experience for each type of mom.

A Family Getaway for Adventurous Moms

This plan is for moms who love spending time in nature. Did you know that Andorra has another Tibetan bridge apart from the one that was opened last summer in Canillo? It is located on the road to Cortals de Encamp, it’s more accessible and it’s also free. It’s 50m long and 5m high. It’s a good option for the whole family while waiting for the Canillo Tibetan bridge to reopen. You can also combine it with a hiking excursion in the area.

For Foodie Moms Who Want to Try New Flavors

Take advantage of one of the days to invite mom to eat or dine out. In Andorra, you’ll find a wide variety of restaurants. You can taste everything from typical Pyrenean cuisine to more gastronomic proposals, Asian food, daily menus or tapas. You’ll surely find the place that meets the expectations of the whole family.

For Moms Who Love Culture

If mom loves discovering new places, you’re also in the perfect place. We recommend a tour of the most beautiful towns in the parish of Ordino. You can do it by car or from the town of Ordino to the iron route on foot following the path that runs alongside the road. You’ll pass through mountain villages like Arans, La Cortinada or Llorts while enjoying examples of typical Andorran architecture. You’ll also pass by Romanesque churches and the Cal Pal house in La Cortinada, one of the oldest in the country, which is open to visit on Saturdays and Sundays in the morning.

For Moms Who Want to Go Shopping

Shopping fits in with the rest of the activities and can be done all year round in Andorra. It’s a good opportunity to stroll through the most commercial streets in the center of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes or even Pas de la Casa and help her choose a good gift.

Surprise Mom with an Afternoon at the Spa

Something she’ll love is spending time at the spa to disconnect. Caldea is the ideal place to book a ticket to the thermal waters and combine it with a relaxing massage or beauty treatment. And of course: you can accompany her! From the apartments, we can help you manage the spa plan.
We hope you liked these ideas for celebrating Mother’s Day in a different way. Book your apartment at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments and enjoy a family getaway at your own pace.

actividades après-ski

Make the most of the Easter long weekend with children

This Easter you are not going to want to miss anything that’s going on in Andorra.
During the day: you won’t run out of Grandvalira Resorts slopes skiing or snowboarding with your children, or on your own while they learn to ski. When the slopes close: the fun continues! Andorra offers a wide range of après-ski activities to suit all tastes. You can make the most of the snow from morning to night, test yourself on ice, enjoy endless afternoons in a spa with the whole family or visit the chocolate factory in La Massana.
This Easter you will spend a crazy long weekend with your children!

Snowtubbing for the first time in Pas de la Casa

On 28 January Grandvalira opened the longest snow tubing slope in Europe. It can reach 60 km/hour and has a length of 350 metres, with turns and two tunnels that go under the slope, to make the experience much more exciting. The Easter long weekend is an excellent opportunity to try it out and let off some adrenaline with the family. It is suitable for children from 6 years old. The day pass and multi-day Andorra Pass include 1 free descent per pass, as well as the NordPass from 4 days (in all modalities except for children under 6 years old).

Palau de Gel après-ski activities

Have fun on ice at the Olympic ice rink in Canillo. Challenge your children to a go-kart race on ice or put on some skates and enjoy some skating time. The rink is indoor and the Palau de Gel offers other services such as a swimming pool, climbing wall, tennis and squash courts. It is located in the village of Canillo, just 15 minutes by car from the apartaments.

Wellness and spas for children

One of the most traditional après-ski activities in Andorra is to finish in the spa after a day of skiing. Without leaving the flats you can relax in our spa (at no extra charge) and take a bath in the jacuzzi with mountain views or relax in the sauna.
You can also venture out to discover the thermal lagoons of the Caldea Thermoludic with your family. And if you go with children from 3 to 8 years old, they can access Likids, the children-only spa of the most famous thermal centre in the country.
We recommend you book in advance to make sure you get a place.

Après-ski continues in the snow

If you like to enjoy the snow from morning to night, discover the forest under the moonlight on a snowmobile. The experience takes place in the Grau Roig sector of Grandvalira, which is very close to Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. Can you imagine exploring the forest at night on a snowmobile? The activity is suitable for children and young people, although those aged 6 to 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Visit to the chocolate factory

And if you’ve come this far, you’re in for a very sweet surprise: Xocland, the chocolate factory in La Massana. Here you will discover how the cocoa beans are processed, following the whole process, and at the end of the visit you will have the chance to taste the chocolate. There are delicacies to suit all tastes, from dark chocolate with 90% cocoa to white and milk chocolate. They also have a wide variety of products such as chocolates, bars, pralines and their speciality, xoca: a combination of various chocolates with biscuits, fruit and other ingredients.
This activity is sure to be a hit with the youngest members of the household. The chocolate factory schedules visits on Saturday afternoons.

With these après-ski activities you won’t be able to resist coming to enjoy Easter in Andorra. Book your accommodation.
