Get ready for winter in Andorra
Andorra is a small country in the Pyrenees linked to snow and sport, a white paradise which caters to skiers from around the world eager to enjoy its incredible mountains.
It’s been half a century since the first ski lift was inaugurated in 1957 at the foot of Coll Blanc, yes, somewhat rudimentary since worked thanks to the engine of a truck. Since then, the facilities have been growing and improving to get a country of just 500 km2, has more than 300 km of ski slopes. A favorite for lovers of winter sports places.
Skiers of all levels can slide down the slopes of Grandvalira, the Southern Europe, with 210 kilometers of pistes spread over 118 tracks of varying difficulty largest station. It has hosted major events like the World Cup women’s downhill skiing and Kilometer, among others. In addition, for skiing there are many other activities: mushing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, fun slides and children to enjoy, you can even stay in a spectacular Igloo Hotel.
The second season consists of Vallnord Ordino-Arcalis and Pal-Arinsal, has about 100 km of tracks and stands out as a benchmark in the freerider – for both beginners and professionals-and for having a family atmosphere.
It is said that the best snow in the Pyrenees is located in Ordino-Arcalis, and the surfers enjoy in their long and wide tracks. But it is the children who spend it better in the longest green run in Andorra, the Megaverda, and Agustina, a character story at the Family Park.
While in Pal-Arinsal, 38,000 square meters have been cleared to make the most incredible jumps and spins. Do not forget that children can learn to ski with a special monitor, a giant Pocoyo.
For starters, the Parador Canaro mini station, located between El Tarter and Soldeu has two tracks especially designed for them, no matter the age, falls (safely) are constant.
And for those who seek to live experiences in nature, they will find them, more than two thousand meters in Sant Julia de Loria, in the adventure park Naturlandia, through two amazing attractions: the Tobotronc, a slide of 5.3 km full of curves that pass through the forest of La Rabassa up a comfortable two-seater sleigh; Airtrekk and a sky trail (circuit aerial platforms and boardwalks) 13.5 meters high and three difficulty levels. Calmer it is the practice of skiing, and the park has over 15 kilometers of marked trails for those addicted to this mode.
While the most popular sport is skiing – in all its forms-, Andorra offers a wide range of possibilities that complete an excellent stay with health centers and relaxation, fine dining, shopping and evenings not finished.
