If there’s one way to work up an appetite, it’s by hitting the slopes and exploring Grandvalira’s 210 kilometres of pisted runs. And it’s not just snowy slopes that’s on offer in Grandvalira – our “lift pass & lunch” offer includes lunch on the mountain, allowing you to save money, budget for your holiday, and make sure that your children can look after themselves if you’re skiing separately.

Nowadays we are fully connected and there is hardly a second that we are separated from our phones, not even when sleeping. Therefore, when we head to the mountain, apart from taking our goggles, gloves and helmet, there is a must, the mobile phone! It could be uncomfortable, but everyone is skiing with their phone in their pocket, either for security reasons, to contact friends or just to take a snowy selfie. Technology is a major part of our lives, but without a doubt, the mobile is the winner, that’s why apps have been gaining importance day by day (supposedly) making life easier.
If you are going on a ski holiday this season, these are the apps you should have on your phone to help you enjoy the snow to the fullest!

After a period of much uncertainty it has been announced today that the Grandvalira brand and ski area will continue indefinitely, which is fantastic news for visitors to Andorra. Not only that, but the area covered by the Grandvalira lift pass is expanding to also cover Arcalis. This means the linked ski area of Grandvalira will still be 210km but with the addition of Arcalis it becomes 240km of slopes covered by the pass. (more…)
If you’re looking for somewhere stylish for your Pas de la Casa ski holiday this winter you’ll be pleased to know that Pierre & Vacances are launching a new addition to their Premium collection. Hotel Grand Pas was formerly know as Himalaia Pas, but has been fully renovated ready for winter 2018-19. Located just 50 metres from the slopes, it’s a great place to choose if you want to hit the mountain early. (more…)
We know that you are already counting down the days to get to the slopes. However, we must be aware that skiing is a very active sport, and that means it requires physical fitness. That’s why we recommend you starting NOW your pre-season training if you want to get the most out of your ski holiday, avoiding unnecessary injuries and pains.
As in any sport, the physical condition is extremely important for skiing, because even if you have a perfect technique it won’t do you any good if your body is not prepared to execute it. Definitely, the legs are the part of the body that works the hardest, but we must not forget the importance of arms, abdomen and back, which makes skiing one of the most complete sports. Here you have a weekly workout schedule to help you get ready to hit the slopes this winter! (more…)
If you are anything like me, you don’t buy anything on the internet without reading through the reviews online and checking the rating first, booking a hotel is certainly no different! We now have access to hundreds of opinions that allow us to form a decision if it’s the right place for us.
That’s why if you are thinking of staying in Pas de la Casa you’d be mad to overlook the Hotel Les Truites. With an impressive score of 9.5 on booking.com, this 3* small and family run hotel is situated right in the heart of the resort and really has everything you need to contribute to a memorable holiday. (more…)
Summer is here, and we are swapping our vin chaud for a nice glass of something chilled and to keep with our Catalan roots our bottle of choice is always Andorran. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that Andorra is situated between the two great wine producing countries of Spain and France, or that the wine comes straight off the hills where we like to spend our winters on, but Andorran wine has a special flavour and is a tipple to be celebrated and enjoyed.
We thought we would share the love and introduce you to our favourite Andorran wine producers who create some award winning bottles that you need to try.
Despite the late snow in the middle of May, the resorts of Andorra are gearing up for the summer season, and already the first mountain bikers have been hitting the trails in advance of the main opening in June. We thought it’s the perfect time to give you a run down of some of the fantastic summer activities in Andorra you can try this year.
Of course there is walking and mountain biking, but there is so much more of offer as you’ll find out below. (more…)
