Andorra offers many activities, including superb ski slopes. Some are more or less well known. The two best are Grandvalira and Vallnord.
So how do you prepare for your trip to Vallnord, Andorra?
Preparing your trip to Vallnord
Which resort to choose?
First of all, the Vallnord ski area passes through several villages, which also have their own ski resorts, including Le Pal, Arinsal, and Ordino. So you need to find out which resort is best for you.
- If you are with your family, you should choose the resort of Le Pal, as it is suitable for everyone, especially for families, as there are slopes suitable for beginners.
- If you are with friends and you like strong sensations, prefer the resort of Arinsal, because it is famous for its freestyle slopes and for all the parties that are organised there, in the evening, at the foot of the slopes.
- Finally, if you want to go in a small group, and no one has the same level, choose the resort of Ordino because it offers a lot of diversity. Indeed, there are multiple levels of ski runs, from green runs to black runs.
You can see that the ski resorts in Vallnord are available for everyone, from beginners to experienced skiers. So, renting accommodation in this ski resort could be a good idea.
How do you go about booking the trip?
First of all, you need to consider the purchase of a plane ticket, or the price of a rental car for example. You should also calculate the price of petrol and tolls, if there are any on your route. These are small details that we never think about, but which could help you to prepare your trip.
Next, you need to find out what accommodation is available in the city of your choice. Some AirBnb are available to go on holiday, alone or in a group; and it is good to note that many accommodations are available in Andorra, especially in the resort Vallnord. Vallnord offers all types of accommodation at low prices, as Andorra is not yet a popular choice for skiing. You must therefore select the type of accommodation you want. If it is a hotel, you will need to prepare fewer things than if you are going to a house for example, as hotels often offer catering services. However, if there are several of you, you cannot necessarily take a hotel, as there is a risk of several of you being in the same room, without privacy. It is therefore important to define the type of accommodation you will be staying in before you start packing.
Finally, you should check that your accommodation is close to the activities and visits that are available in the Vallnord resort. Skiing is great, but perhaps you would like to visit the cultural sites in the resort, or do your shopping! In order to prepare your holiday in Vallnord, it is important to have a map and to know where your accommodation is located in relation to the activities available in the resort.
The ski area of Vallnord is an excellent place for snow sports:
- downhill skiing
- freeride (off-piste)

Moreover, the snow cover is also ideal. If you don’t live far away, you can also come for a family ski day.
