Grandvalira

More than 200 km of runs

|

With more than 210 km of runs, Grandvalira has the largest ski domain in the Pyrenees and is credited with covering the most extensive surface area in the South of Europe. Situated in the Eastern valley of Andorra, Grandvalira offers the choice between seven different sectors, so as to satisfy the most demanding customers. Artificial snow guarantees more than 60% of the ski domain, making winter sports available at any time. The resort is home to the only run in Andorra where international Alpine ski competitions can be held -one of the few in the Pyrenees. Grandvalira has hosted several races of the World cup and is a candidate to organize international Alpine ski competitions on its FIS homologated runs. Whatever the sector of the resort, skiers will always find all the services they need: ski schools, excellent restaurants, nurseries or kindergartens among others. Grandvalira's vast gastronomic offer will amaze visitors by its choice between over 40 different restaurants and cafeterias, to suit all tastes and budgets.

GRANDVALIRA-ENCAMP
Grandvalira-Encamp is the first access point to the domain, located only 5 km from the main shopping area of Andorra-la-Vella and Escaldes-Engordany. A 6-km cable-car named Funicamp links in 18 minutes the village of Encamp to the Solanelles area (the highest point in the resort), commanding one of the most breathtaking views over the whole domain.
GRANDVALIRA-CANILLLO
The Grandvalira-Canillo sector is custom-made for families and beginners. With its large number of easy runs, it is the right place to make first contacts with the snow. It is set in a small village in a quiet atmosphere, far from the crowds. Its 8-seater gondolas transport the skiers to one of the most beautiful natural spots in Andorra, the Forn de Canillo valley..
GRANDVALIRA-EL TARTER
Grandvalira-El Tarter is one of the liveliest sectors of the resort because it is designed for practicing the most extreme sports. Here the Snowpark El Tarter hosts the most dynamic freestyle activity in Southern Europe. The sector boasts the Encamp freeride area, where off-piste skiing is possible. Families will find much to do thanks to a snow circuit specially designed for kids –the Bababoum circus- along with many other recreational activities. And a great idea after a full day bustling with activities will be to enjoy one of the best après-skis at the Abarset café, at the foot of the slopes,
GRANDVALIRA-SOLDEU
Strategically located at the heart of the domain, Grandvalira-Soldeu has many great runs and extreme descents to offer to those who enjoy good snow in an exceptional natural setting. The sector is proud of its Avet slope, which hosted Alpine Ski races during the World Cup Championships. It is also perfect for families, with its wide offer of high-quality hotels and very lively nightlife.
GRANDVALIRA-GRAU ROIG
Only sector without any urban centre, it is noted for the most spectacular landscape in Andorra, qualifying the area as the most pristine in the domain. Grandvalira Grau-Roig has runs for all skills and the Imaginarium circuit, located in the woods and specifically designed for toddlers.
GRANDVALIRA-PAS DE LA CASA
The Pas de la Casa sector is the first access point to Grandvalira from France. With the perfect snow conditions of Grandvalira-Pas de la Casa, the long slopes and their varied levels of difficulty, it is easy to make the most of winter sports here. Pas de la Casa is also a giant shop-window displaying goods at bargain prices. This is why it is considered one the best places in Andorra for making the hottest deals. Nowhere else is nightlife more animated than here: numerous pubs and parties make it one of the most exciting sites for the young.
