General information

Grandvalira is a real paradise for enthusiasts. There are peaks that reach above 2800 meters and have 210 kilometers of slopes. The ski resorts of Grau Roig and Soldeu are interconnected, making the Grandvalira area the largest ski area in Southern Europe. With 300 sunny days a year Grandvalira is also of the sunniest areas in Europe.

Beginners and children are fond of Canillo, where there is mostly peaceful, blue runs. El Tarter other hand, is a true paradise for the real cracks. After a few hours on the slopes will you still not be confident? Choose the wide slopes in Soldeu where you will have the space. This does not mean that this part of the ski area is only suitable for beginners, because some of the most extreme sections of Grandvalira are also found here. Grau Roig is the most unspoilt part of the ski area. The views are truly spectacular here. The slopes offer something for everyone, and for children there is a nice snow track in the woods. Pas de la Casa has a high altitude (almost as high as Val Thorens in the French Alps). With a wide variety of wide blue, red and black runs, you should not skip this section. Whether you are a novice or an advanced skier, you will sure find something in Grandvalira, judging by the quality of the snow and the wide, varied pistes! The experienced skiers can really enjoy themselves here. The lowest point of this area is actually not low, at about 1700 meters.

Is there more to do in Grandvalira something? Yes! A drink in a very special place is highly recommended: the Igloo Bar Grandvalira Pla de les Pedres at Grau Roig. Rent a dog sled, take a thrilling ride on a snowmobile or take a beautiful walk on snowshoes. Tubing, snow buggies, four fun parks and helicopter skiing, all of these activities are within your reach!

After a long day out in the snow, there is still plenty to do. There are several restaurants, bars and cafes in which to find the beautiful slopes directly. You can even enjoy tapas on the slopes in the Red Chill Out & Tapas Bar in El Tarter. On the lounge terrace, you can relax in a hammock and listen to the DJs.
