Andorra is perfect for feeling the magic of Christmas
Unforgettable memories during the festive season in Andorra and experience the essence of Christmas with family and friends
The holidays in Andorra are magical and unique. The festive atmosphere, the bright lights and the festive spirit in the typical Christmas markets, where you can find unique gifts and traditional Christmas delicacies. Not forgetting the ski slopes, which are the perfect setting for winter sports. But the most special thing is undoubtedly the opportunity to enjoy the festive season with friends and family. Dinners and evenings in the warmth of the fireplace are unforgettable moments that will live long in your memory. In Andorra and at Park Piolets MountainHotel & Spa you will experience the magic of the holidays to the full. Here we tell you all about it.
The capital's Christmas market has become a reference point. In its stands you'll find handmade products made by local producers, as well as a restaurant area and a children's ice rink. Without leaving Andorra la Vella, you'll find a children's area with a carousel and animations of light and colour, as well as itinerant shows in the streets. In addition to all this, you can enjoy the spectacle of the fountains located on the Pont de Paris bridge, which will be performing a new show.
From the beginning of December until before Christmas, you can also find other Christmas markets and Christmas activities in the rest of the country. Check the different proposals here.
A visit from Father Christmas
At Park Piolets MountainHotel & Spa we also celebrate Christmas in a special way. We have already spoken to Santa Claus, and he has confirmed that he will make a stop to visit the children staying at the hotel.
For Christmas Eve dinner, we have prepared a delicious Gala buffet, and on Christmas Day we will have a delicious snack for the little ones at the Kid's Club, where they can have fun with the activities we have planned. Check the details here.
If instead of enjoying Santa Claus' visit at the hotel you prefer to go to meet him, on the afternoon of the 24th Father Christmas will announce his arrival with a parade through the different towns of Andorra.

The torchlight procession
Surprises never end in Soldeu. On 31 December, the legendary torchlight descent will take place on the slopes from 6 pm (conditions permitting). It will run through the central area of the sector from Pla d'Espiolets to the platform that links the resort with the village, passing along the Bosc Fosc, Òs and Avet slopes (the famous route that hosts the Alpine skiing World Cups). !A highly recommended activity for the last afternoon of the year!
And of course, we will end the year with a Gala buffet in our restaurant.
Here we welcome the new year in the best way.
We have some interesting options to start 2024 in style:
1. The first descent on the slopes
Yes, the slopes are indeed open and it's a perfect day for skiing in Grandvalira. But the first thing to do is to have a generous breakfast at the buffet restaurant. Once you've recovered your energy, you can head to the Ski Room to pick up your ski equipment and get on the transfer that will take you to the foot of the Soldeu cable car.
2. Relax at the mountain spa
Back at the hotel, nothing better than spending some time in our spa. Taking time for yourself and being pampered in the bubbles of the jacuzzi or with a massage from our menu is also a great way to celebrate the New Year. Check the timetable and choose the schedule that suits you best.
3. Enjoy a cocktail on the Moët&Chandon Terrace
Enjoy an aperitif, a cocktail or a glass of Champagne toasting the New Year on the hotel's terrace, warm in winter thanks to the outdoor fireplaces. If you visit us with your family, the little ones will have a great time at the Kids Club, where they will enjoy the thousand and one activities we have prepared for them.
The most awaited night
On the weekend of Epiphany, the last of the festivities, everything will also be ready to welcome their Majesties, who have already assured us that on Friday 5th in the afternoon they will announce their arrival in Andorra with parades all over the country. Make the most of your holidays in Andorra to discover one of the most beautiful traditions of Spanish culture.
Share with us what are possibly the most endearing moments of the year. Enjoy the festivities with your loved ones and frame them with postcard-perfect landscapes that the snow of the winter days will surely give us.
