Andorra is the perfect destination for skiing, but also for enjoying the snow in many different ways. If you love skiing or snowboarding, it’s perfect because you can combine your passion with many other activities. If this is not the case, don’t worry, because you can also have fun in the snow without getting on a board.
In this blog we tell you about some of the winter activities to do with the family in the different resorts of Grandvalira Resorts.
Mon(t) Magic in Canillo
This children’s circuit, located in the Canillo sector of Grandvalira, is the ideal place for the little ones and where the older ones can also join them in some winter activities. It is easily accessible by the Canillo cable car or you can get there on skis.
Get your adrenaline pumping on the Tyrolean traverse
Experience the sensation of flying on the Grandvalira zip line, 40 metres above the ground, over a distance of 550 metres. Fly over the Forn lake, surrounded by nature, in seated, stretched or tandem mode with your child.
Slide down the Magic Gliss with the family
A giant slide located outdoors in the middle of nature awaits you. It is 555 metres down and 180 metres up. You can go down it at up to 40 km/h.
Excursions to suit all tastes
Among the most popular winter activities are trips to the snow to discover the forests and the most unusual landscapes of the seasons. Near Els Llacs Mountain Apartments, in the Grau Roig adventure centre, you’ll find snowshoeing excursions on snowy trails up to icy lakes with a guide. You can also explore the Moretó forest on a snowmobile and… why not, sign up for this adventure at night. Finally, go deep into the white landscapes enjoying an excursion on a dog sled, driving the mushing or as a passenger, an experience that will stay with you forever!
Winter activities also in Pal Arinsal
This time, head to the other valley to discover the resort of Pal Arinsal and its wide range of activities. You’ll love going sledging with your children. Pal offers two slopes with conveyor belts so you can go up comfortably and more quickly to enjoy the descent. Next to the sledging track you will find another of the most popular activities: the Big Airbag. You can test yourself by jumping from 3 different heights on a giant mattress. Finally, if you go with children aged 14 and over, you can try the Moonbikes and go on an excursion on these electric motorbikes that offer a new way of enjoying winter activities.
What’s coming up: Snowtubbing by DOTS in Pas de la Casa
This season will see the premiere of this activity where fun and laughter are guaranteed. Snowtubbing will be located in Pas de la Casa where you will be able to slide along 350 metres and where you will be able to reach 60 km/h (it will be the longest tubing slope in Europe). It is scheduled to open during the season and will be available in the afternoon when the slopes are closed. It can also be enjoyed in summer.
