Encamp

Encamp is one of Andorra 's top ski destinations. The high-speed gondola takes you to the slopes in the middle of the Grandvalira ski area. In just 17 ​​minutes from the center of Encamp you will stand at 2600 meters high, where can enjoy the whole day on the many excellent wide slopes. You can easily transfer through Encamp on a ski train to the gondola during the morning and afternoon.

But that 's not all. In terms of après-ski, you will not go hungry. The bars are cozy and warm and the perfect place to socialize with the friendly locals. A conversation with a tip: go even après-ski in the nearby capital, Andorra la Vella. Encamp exudes a Spanish atmosphere, and it is finally on the Spanish side of Andorra.

Do you prefer a sportier way of working, then there is the sports center with a large fitness center, squash courts, a swimming pool and relaxing sauna. Shopping and fine dining is available, and even culturally Encamp has plenty to offer. This historic site actually has one of the finest cultural heritage of Andorra, in the heart of the city, "Les Bons" view, the remains of an old medieval city center. Also, do the old, water- powered flour mill, which is not to miss. The car museum, one of the largest in Europe, is known for its outstanding collection of cars from the late 1800s until 1960.

For a day without slopes, we definitely recommend you visit to Caldea. Caldea is the largest wellness and spa center in southern Europe, with 20,000 m2 of water and cornerstone of spa enjoyment! The complex is just 7 kilometers away from Encamp, in a suburb of the capital, Andorra la Vella. Here you can enjoy large indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzis, waterfalls and water massage. There is a section with Roman baths of different temperatures and a spa with thermal baths where you can choose from a wide range of beauty treatments. You can also order a delicious lunch, snacks or dinner in the two restaurants. There is even a shopping center in the complex. In short, Caldea: for a whole day try something different for the whole family .

Location and surroundings

Grandvalira

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.
