General information

The Vallnord ski area consists of three small ski areas; Pal, Arinsal and Arcalis and is located near the Spanish border in a wooded area. The smaller areas, Pal-Arinsal and Ordino-Arcalis are easily accessible even if they are not connected. The area has 92 kilometers of marked pistes and because of the many differences in altitude it is known for this. Because the gondola offers a good connection between the ski areas, there are many opportunities for beginners but also for the winter sports enthusiast who likes to take on the challenge.

The long, narrow pistes in Arinsal are a good feature of this region. Especially for beginners this is a great ski area, the advanced skier will have to look for the challenge more in the higher slopes. There is also plenty to do for snowboarders. In Arinsal there are several options in the large freestyle park and in Ordino there are the best off-piste options in Andorra. Hikers are dependent on the occasional difficult mountain hikes in the Ordino valley.
