A December long weekend for all tastes

Skiing isn’t the only good thing about winter! In Andorra, you’ll find loads of snow-related activities as well as all the traditional ones. Keep reading to find out more.

Snow for non-skiers

You can enjoy the same landscapes and mountains as you would if you were an expert skier. The ski resorts have created routes for practising countless snow-based activities, including hiking in snowshoes, riding snowmobiles, mushing on the famous dog-powered sleds, and much more.
In Grandvalira, you can try the Màgic Gliss, a giant slide that descends 555 metres, or fly over a lake as you hurl down a zip line. Loads of unique experiences also await you in Vallnord-Pal Arinsal, like the rope park and SnowTrike circuits.
Will you dare to try them all?

Nature in winter too

You can also do snow-related activities while you get close to nature at Naturlandia adventure park.
It’s a great opportunity to learn about the lives of some of the Pyrenees’ native species, like wolves, bears, lynxes, and more. In the animal park, which is fully integrated into the landscape, you’ll discover their natural habitat in total safety before heading to the nature classroom to finish off the visit.
And don’t forget to hurtle down the Tobotronc, another outdoor slide that can be found in Andorra. We guarantee you’ll want to try it with your whole family!

Pre-Christmas shopping

As you may already be aware, shopping is one of Andorra’s star attractions. You can enjoy shopping in the commercial areas spread across the centre and also at the foot of the slopes in Pas de la Casa. Don’t forget to take a break between shops in the various bars and cafes, you could even sample the traditional national cuisine to regain some strength before you head back out. Make the most of the extra day over the December long weekend and get your Christmas shopping done.

And what do all these things have in common? Afterwards, you can put the cherry on top of an incredible day in the snow by coming to bathe in Caldea’s thermal waters.
