Come and enjoy the November bank holiday in Andorra

The most eagerly awaited dates of the autumn have arrived to enjoy a well-deserved 3-day getaway. The Bank Holiday in November is the ideal time to switch off from your daily routine and relax in Andorra.

 

The Andorra Shopping Festival is back

The All Saints’ Day bank holiday also brings the Andorra Shopping Festival, with entertainment and concerts in the streets. Shops join in the festivities with discounts, special promotions and raffles. The whole family is welcome to come and have a great time in the main shopping areas of the capital and Escaldes. From 29 October to 14 November, and especially at weekends when there are more people, as you stroll through the shopping streets you’ll find concerts, travelling shows, activities for children and much more. It’s the ideal place to do your first Christmas shopping, to renew your wardrobe or to find the latest in technology at the best prices.

The festival is also accompanied by the most eagerly awaited gastronomic days in the country: the Andorra Taula.  The restaurants create special menus based on a theme or an ingredient, usually a local product. It is the perfect opportunity to get to know Andorra a little better through what is produced in the country. The events usually last until the end of November, so foodies have yet another reason to come this long weekend.

 

Make the most of the long weekend to renew your ski equipment

Grandvalira has announced that it will open the slopes on 3 December. So the All Saints’ Day long weekend is a good time to get ready to start the winter season in style. Before leaving home, check your ski equipment: try on your clothes (including thermals), check your boots, boards, poles, ski goggles, helmet and gloves. So when you come to Andorra you will know exactly what you need to replace or in case you feel like treating yourself. In autumn, the brands start to bring their new products, which you can buy in sports and specialised shops. If you are looking for cheaper options you will find them in the outlets. Remember that apart from going down to the centre, you can also shop in Pas de la Casa, which is closer to Els Llacs Moutain Apartments. 

 

Stay in the heart of nature and away from the centre

If you prefer to get away from the hustle and bustle of the centre, in a quieter area, don’t hesitate to book with us at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. The long weekend in November is also ideal to discover nature in autumn and enjoy the spectacle of the changing colours, seeing how the trees turn from green to ochre, orange and brown. Here you will find the holiday flat that best suits you whether you come with friends, family or as a couple. And what’s more, we are pet friendly.  

 

Enjoy the All Saints’ weekend with all the advantages

If you book through our website, you will get a 10% exclusive web discount plus a 15% discount for advance sales.  And if you come for the 3 nights of the long weekend in November, you will benefit from the 3×2 offer: paying for 2 nights we give you 1 for free. 

In addition, we prepare a welcome with breakfast on the first day so you can arrive comfortably and have nothing to worry about when you arrive.

 

This November long weekend we are waiting for you with everything ready for you to enjoy a 3-day getaway at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments, your accommodation in Bordes de Envalira.

An alternative autumn getaway in Andorra

Autumn is here! Still no plans to enjoy a well-deserved getaway? We suggest an alternative route around Andorra, ideal for getting away from the crowds and discovering the lesser-known corners of our 7 parishes.

  1. The hidden secrets of Canillo

The parish of Canillo is where the Els Llacs tourist flats are located. The first route is to discover the Toll Bullidor, a natural waterfall near Meritxell, along an easily accessible hiking route.

Another interesting place to discover during an autumn long weekend is the motorbike museum, located in the Canillo cable car. It has a permanent exhibition of more than 120 pieces, some of which are unique and the oldest is from 1896. Without a doubt, two activities you can do with your children.

  1. Shopping in Encamp

We continue on to the next parish: Encamp. Here we suggest you go shopping in Pas de la Casa. If you don’t know it because you always stay in the centre, the location of our holiday flats is a good excuse to visit this village on the border with France. It is closer than Escaldes and Andorra la Vella and it is an open-air shopping centre with all the products you can imagine at the foot of the slopes.

What’s more, if you access Pas de la Casa via the Envalira pass, you’ll enjoy incredible views and landscapes.

  1. Ordino in autumn is even more beautiful

You probably already know the Ordino iron route, but we can’t fail to recommend it because it is especially beautiful in autumn. In addition to the sculptures, the borda and the Romanesque bridge along the route, it’s worth it for the scenery, from where you can admire the changing colours of the season to perfection. The itinerary is very accessible, so set aside an afternoon to visit it.

  1. A very sweet visit to La Massana

In La Massana you will find the only chocolate factory in Andorra: Xocland, where this delicious food is produced and processed in the factory located in the centre of the village. This is a visit not to be missed for lovers of chocolate in all its forms, as you’ll see the entire production process from bean to finished product up close. Of course, it is also a great place to go with the little ones in the house.

  1. Autumn is ideal for rediscovering the capital city

We are now heading down towards the central parishes of the Principality. We suggest a very simple panoramic route on the Rec del Solà, an itinerary at the foot of the Carroi peak from where you can see the whole of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany. At the end of the route you can go down to the historic centre of the capital to have a drink and get your strength back.

  1. Sant Julià de Lòria, the lesser-known one

In this parish you will find the Juberri gardens, a peculiar space where you will see a multitude of giant sculptures. Mostly of animals, but you will also see fountains and miniature models of Romanesque churches in the country. It is very well kept and the views over the valley are spectacular.

  1. The Escaldes hot springs

We’re sure you’ve heard of Caldea many times: but do you know about its Private Spa? It is a space for private use with a maximum capacity for 4 people with a jacuzzi, sauna, contrast showers and relaxation areas, where you can also enjoy a couple’s massage. This plan is only for couples and we recommend that you make a reservation beforehand.

These different and original things to do in Andorra in autumn are ideal to combine with the peace and quiet of staying at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. Check the flat you like the most and book it with the 3×2 offer, which is also available for the long weekends in October, you stay 3 nights and only pay for 2!

Enjoy the last days of summer at the adventure parks

There’s still time to have fun in the open-air activities that take place in the different adventure parks.

It’s the perfect plan for a family day out!

This plan is for you if you come during the first days of September and on weekends until the long weekend of 12 October.

 

Take advantage of the 3×2 offer to look for mushrooms and cook them in the apartament.

The mountain is to be enjoyed all year round and with a different activity in each season. In autumn, mushrooms come out, a very popular and prized delicacy for many recipes and with many ways of tasting them. Make the most of being in an tourist accommodation to continue the experience by cooking them to your liking and enjoying them with your travel companions. Some of the mushrooms that come out in Andorra in autumn are chanterelles, ceps, perrochicos and senderuelas. However, remember that if you don’t know them or don’t know them, it’s best not to pick them to avoid poisoning. In this article we told you about 5 benefits of going mushroom hunting.

 

Enjoy the best autumn gastronomy

The best place to discover Andorran cuisine is in a borda. These are typical Andorran buildings where once livestock was kept and have now been turned into restaurants. Here you can savour typical dishes made with seasonal products. In autumn, they serve stews based on wild boar, hare or game meat, perfectly accompanied by mushrooms and boletus. Mountain rice dishes, stews or creams, ideal for warming up and… and don’t miss the grilled meat!

 

Renew and prepare your skiing equipment

As winter approaches, it’s time to check your ski and snowboards and other equipment. Take advantage of the 3×2 offer to buy what you’re missing and catch up on the season’s trends. Take a stroll through the shopping areas of Andorra, Escaldes and Pas de la Casa looking for new products in the sports shops and also in the outlets.

Discover 3 hiking routes in Andorra

Make the most of your summer holidays in Andorra. Very close to the Els Llacs Mountain Apartments you have an endless number of routes to enjoy hiking. Some are easier and others not so easy… but there are options for all levels, to do with children or for the more experienced hikers.  One thing is clear, you will discover the exuberant nature of the Andorran mountains and breathe fresh air while you exercise. So, for you to have a great time this summer, here are 3 hiking routes in Andorra. And as an extra, 1 cycling route, for those of you who love cycling.

A fun route for the whole family

We start with a very picturesque hiking track in Andorra, close to the flats and ideal to do with children: the Gall path. You can start in Canillo, at the Telecabina car park, or in the opposite direction from Soldeu. The itinerary is signposted and there are signs explaining the fauna and flora that you will come across, as well as the views. The path runs parallel to main road 2, so you can take it or leave it at various points. It also has several bridges (one of them Tibetan), a tunnel and a group of bordas (typical Andorran houses), elements that enrich the route. It owes its name to the fact that it is the habitat of capercaillies; in fact, the signposts are made of wood and marked with a red cockerel. It is a fun and accessible route for children.

Discovering the new Tristaina solar viewpoint

This summer Andorra has opened a new viewpoint in Arcalís. What makes it so special is its originality, as it is a circular structure on top of the Peyreguils peak at 2,701 metres. It is also a sundial in homage to the sundial mountain of Arcalís. From here the views are impressive over the Tristaina lakes, the rest of the peaks and the whole valley.

The excursion on foot (about 15 minutes) is well worth it, for the scenery and the contact with nature. But also to put the icing on the cake at the end of the walking route in Andorra by being able to contemplate the landscape from the new viewpoint. To get there you have to go to the Ordino-Arcalís resort. The route starts at the Coma car park near the chairlift, heading towards Creussans lake and continues to Creussans pass, ending at Peyreguils peak. If you wish, you can go up by cable car and chairlift (the ride takes 5 and 15 minutes respectively), finishing with a walk of another 15 minutes.

High altitude trekking route in Andorra

Finally, we leave you with a more difficult route that will take you to the highest peak in the Principality: Comapedrosa, at 2942 metres. The route requires a good physical preparation as it covers 14 kilometres (outward and return), with a difference in altitude of 1,300 metres and some more complicated sections. The ascent starts in Arinsal, crossing the Comapedrosa Valleys nature reserve, a protected natural area since 2006. Along the way you will be able to appreciate the changes in vegetation, passing through red and black pine forests, meadows and some lakes. 

Extra: a cycle touring route for road bikes

If you like trekking in Andorra but you’re more of a fan of cycling, you’re also in the right place. You can choose from 21 cycling routes categorised by level of difficulty. The one we’ll tell you about today is medium level: it starts in the village of Canillo and ends in El Forn, near the Grandvalira adventure activity centre. It is 5.2 kilometres long and has an average gradient of 388 metres. It is undoubtedly a good alternative to continue discovering new landscapes while cycling.

For you to enjoy the experience even more this summer at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments you have the bike included in your stay. Check our offers and choose the one you prefer, with road bike, MTB or e-bike.

These are some of the hiking routes you can do in summer in Andorra, although there are many more to do on foot or by bike. Do not hesitate to contact us to make your reservation or ask for more information.

However, to ensure that you don’t have to worry about anything, we also have unique services that make us different from other holiday flats. Before your arrival you will be able to do your shopping online in order to have it on your arrival and you will find a welcome pack with everything you need for the first day of breakfast

We also welcome pets, as this is a pet friendly accommodation.

As we said, the Els Llacs apartaments are different and have more services to make your stay more enjoyable. You can relax in the spa with an outdoor jacuzzi and the children can enjoy the indoor play area.

So, this will be your home in Andorra, while you enjoy a total nature getaway. When you open the windows, wherever you look you will be met with the green of the mountains and the singing of the birds.

 

With all anti-covid security measures

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been actively working to adapt to this new situation. Together with specialised companies and following all governmental indications, we have adopted all the necessary anti-covid protocols. You can find them here.

 

Andorra: it is a safe destination with no mobility restrictions.

The country also respects all the security measures required to make it a safe destination. Mobility within Andorra is not restricted, so you can move around freely without curfew. You can eat out and enjoy good food, go shopping or visit museums and other tourist activities because everything is open. However, you will also have to plan ahead and make a reservation because the capacity has been reduced in order to keep a safe distance to comply with security measures.

 

The best outdoor activities are in Andorra

We are located in a privileged place for all kinds of outdoor activities. Whether you love walking in the mountains or cycling.

Very close to the apartaments you have spots as impressive as the Incles Valley. Here you can start many high mountain hikes or more easily accessible hikes that lead to peaks, lakes and mountain huts. If you get to Soldeu you can discover the Gall Way. A mountain trail suitable for everyone with excellent signposting. It will take you to Canillo, passing by such curious places as a Tibetan bridge, while you discover the flora of the country. If you take the path from Soldeu to Canillo, it’s all downhill (and therefore much easier). When you get to Canillo, you can have a drink in the village and take the bus back to Soldeu or the apartments.

As a novelty, from May onwards, you will be able to book your stay with a bike. And if you are one of those who prefer to bring your own bike, we have bike lockers for you to store it. Come and explore Andorra through its mountain passes and discover the best cycling routes on road bikes. And also to enjoy the mountain trails with your mountain bike.

 

Andorra is a safe destination where you can come with complete peace of mind and stay at Els Llacs Mountain Apartments close to nature for lots of adventures.
