Just two kilometres along the valley from Soldeu you will find the neighbouring ski resort of El Tarter, a much quieter village and more suited to couples and families looking for a relaxing stay with good access to the slopes. The village is linked directly to the vast Grandvalira ski area by a ten seater cable car (and a four seater chairlift). Upon arrival at the slopes you will notice the impressive El Tarter snow park which plays host to the Total Masters of Freestyle event every season.
El Tarter has its own English speaking ski and snowboard schools, plus a small nursery and snow garden for younger children. Our ski rental partner here is located directly in front of the Tarter chairlift and offers 30% discount for pre-booking, so well worth doing. In the village itself you will find a handful of bars and restaurants, including the aprés ski venue of L’Arbaset, although evening activities in El Tarter tend to be quite low key.
El Tarter offers a great selection of accommodation, with plenty of self-catering apartments including Pierre & Vacances, and an excellent hostel as well as some good quality larger hotels such as the 4* Hotel Nordic and Hotel Euroski.
