ARCALÍS, POSITIVELY THE BEST SNOW OF THE PYRENEES.
The extraordinary ski resort
The guarantee of snow and fun on the most Alpine and exciting skiable domain in Andorra which all users of the Grandvalira pass can now access.
Ordino-Arcalís, known for offering the best quality and greatest amount of snow in the Pyrenees, has become part of the Grandvalira Resorts group.
It offers a unique mountain area in which families and expert skiers can enjoy themselves in complete freedom, without queues or crowds, in a safe and now more convenient atmosphere, thanks to the new Tristaina gondola lift.
With 30 km of marked slopes and more than 120 off-piste itineraries, it has become a worldwide reference, and the annual setting for the prestigious Freeride World Tour circuit.
The Ordino-Arcalís Ski and Snowboard School offers private and group classes for all levels and ages with the greatest level of individual attention. While parents are enjoying their day of freedom, their children will discover the magic of snow in the best company. Learning and fun are guaranteed.
For the very youngest children, we have a crèche service, a covered snow garden so that they can learn with all the facilities, new areas for beginners with direct access from the Tristaina gondola lift and the Agustina Family Park, a thematic circuit with tunnels, banking and obstacles with great surprises awaiting them and endless emotions. There is also the Megaverda slope, the longest beginner slope in the Pyrenees, which is 8.5 km long, for the whole family to enjoy.
Tradition and originalityserved on a plate
Flavours, textures and aromas of the mountain. Dishes that are 100% cooked in the ski resort using locally-sourced top-quality products. Home-made cooking with a touch of originality, sophisticated filled baguettes, all served up with exclusive views from panoramic terraces. It is worthwhile discovering charming places such as La Borda de la Coma or El Refugi Les Portelles which, at an altitude of 2,550 metres, is the highest gourmet restaurant in Andorra.
If you want to enjoy a unique adventure, we recommend the fondue evening meal at La Borda restaurant, which you can enter on a giant sledge for 50 people, and later ski back down again in the moonlight

Ordino - Arcalís Summer
Between 8:30 and 17:30, Ordino-Arcalís becomes the only bicycle ascent to one of the end ports of the Tour de France and La Vuelta a España which is free from wheeled traffic. A paradise for cyclists.
Visitors and trippers can also enjoy a panoramic trip in the Tristaina gondola lift to Coma del Forat. Ordino-Arcalís is the ideal base camp for enjoying activities in nature, such as a trip to the Tristaina Lakes, or the experience of using the highest chairlift in the Principality which goes up to 2,625 m and admiring the views of Andorra, France and Spain, surrounded by mythical mountain peaks such as the Pica d’Estats (3,143 m).
You can rent electric bicycles, the Vivac Experience, enabling you to spend the night out in the open fully equipped with a guide, excursions in quads or amphibious vehicles, all of which can be complemented with a good meal on the sunny terrace of La Borda de la Coma restaurant, making this one of the best plans in Andorra to enjoy the summer.
