December is one of the most eagerly awaited time for most pleople, and Andorra is the ideal destination for many reasons. The main one is that it”s when the ski season starts.
This year the resorts are scheduled to open on 3 December, but there is much more! Whether your thing is snow sports or you prefer to invest your time in other activities, you won’t be bored this December. Here’s everything you can do in Andorra.
Skiing in Grandvalira
If the weather conditions are fine, it looks like you’ll be skiing since the beginning of December. Take note: this season Grandvalira Resorts is launching a unique ski pass, the Andorra Pass. It allows you to ski on a total of 303 kilometres of slopes in Grandvalira, Pal Arinsal and Ordino Arcalís, with the multi-day ski pass.
This is a good opportunity to improve your skiing technique or get started in a new modality such as snowboarding or freeriding, depending on your level, with individual or group classes. You can also enrol your little ones in ski schools so that they can get started in this sport and you can practise your hobby as a family.
December is also a time to relax
Whether you ski or you prefer to spend the whole day taking time for yourself, it is always a good option to find a moment to relax. We suggest several spa alternatives so that you can choose the one you like best:
– The spa at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments
Our flats are unique for many reasons and one of them is because it has a free spa with two jacuzzis, one of which is outdoors with views of the mountains, hammam and sauna. It also has a gym and massage area (with charge) to finish a day of skiing and snow activities as it deserves.
– The Park Spa Mountain Wellness Club
If you feel like extending your wellness experience, we suggest the mountain spa of the Park Piolets hotel, which belongs to our same chain and is located at the foot of the Soldeu slopes.
Enjoy it as an après-ski activity or as a full day activity combining the water circuit with some beauty treatments and relaxing massages.
– Bathe in the thermal waters of Caldea
If you are travelling as a family with children aged 5 and over, choose the Thermoludic entrance ticket; the youngest, aged 3 and 4, have exclusive access to the Likids children’s spa. If you are travelling as a couple, we recommend that you book at Inúu, the spa for over 16s, whose ticket will also give you access to the Thermoludic and Origins spas.
Snow activities for the whole family
If you love skiing but you also want to have fun with your family, complement your skiing with snow activities or dedicate a whole day to it.
Choose among the different proposals that Grandvalira offers you, among which you will find excursions with dog sleds or snowmobiles in the forests near our flats. Another option is to spend a fun time building igloos or sledging down the slopes of Soldeu when they close for skiers.
Ask about these activities and many more when you book your getaway for the long weekend.
The first Christmas shopping
Make the most of your break in december! Take the opportunity to do your first Christmas shopping in the commercial centres of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes or in Pas de la Casa, which is closer to our flats.
While you go shopping and help Santa Claus to choose the presents for the whole family, stroll through the streets decorated with Christmas motifs and stop to recover your strength in the restaurants in downtown.
