In Andorra your children will enjoy the snow as much as you do. In Grandvalira you can find slopes for beginners, both on the easiest slopes and in the snow gardens. You can choose to teach them yourself or rely on the experience and patience of the resort's specialist instructors. Your children can also enjoy skiing in Andorra from a very young age.
Are you planning to visit Andorra with your family? Listen up!
Andorra is a paradise for enjoying winter sports with children: skiing, snowshoeing, mushing, or fun activities such as Snake Gliss and igloo building. The ski resorts also offer a wide range of activities during the summer season.
From canoeing and pedalos to horse and pony rides, and not forgetting the adventure activities such as archery, giant slides through the forest and Airtrekk. You will also have the opportunity for fun in Caldea’s thermal waters or to enjoy our Park Spa Mountain Wellness Club during its specific timetable for families (babies allowed). If your children are teenagers, they will love trying the MTB circuits or discovering unique adventure routes by climbing and jumping from the trees in our forests. If you like to combine holidays and culture, you can follow the ancient crafts path in Naturland or follow the Iron Route in Ordino and visit the old mines of Llorts and the interpretation centre at the Rossell Forge or the Electricity Museum.
Skiing with children
Mushing as a family
A fun activity for everyone. If your children are dog lovers, they will have the time of their lives with the dog sled rides. You can enjoy this activity as a family with children from 1 year old (children under 3 years old must be accompanied by an adult and the activity is free for them).
If you like to enjoy the snow, but you don't ski, snowshoeing is the perfect option for having fun with your family while trekking through snow-covered forests. This is an easy activity that’s suitable for everyone, as younger children can come along in a backpack (just as they would for hiking). If your children are already walking by themselves, they will love snowshoeing on their own.
Fun is more than guaranteed for you and your children, even if you never clip into your skis. Grandvalira and the rest of the country's ski resorts have fun activities for you to enjoy: helicopter flights, Snake Gliss, igloo building, ski mountaineering and more.
Did you know that you can enjoy snowmobile rides as a family? Children aged 6 and over can also have fun on snowmobile excursions, day or night, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
Adventure and outdoor fun
Your children know exactly what they expect from a holiday. They want to go to the park!
In Andorra you will find traditional children’s parks in all the parishes. The largest are the Parc Central in Andorra la Vella and the adventure playgrounds in Escaldes-Engordany. You’ll have no trouble finding a play area for your children in the rest of the parishes, with a grassy area, slides, swings or see-saws. And there’s more...
Throughout the year, the Palau de Gel in Canillo, just a few minutes' drive from the hotel, has fun family activities on ice such as ice skating (children under 6 years of age get free admission accompanied by an adult) and ice karting.
Hiking with children
It’s almost impossible to visit Andorra and not get the urge to go trekking in our mountains. Although it’s true that hiking with children is not always easy. No one knows your children better than you, and the routes you can tackle in the country will depend on them. With themed routes, specially designed for families, it won't be difficult for you to enjoy the mountains with your family.
Museums with children
Travelling with children doesn’t have to be incompatible with visiting museums. In Andorra you will find intriguing museums that you’re sure to love, such as the Automobile Museum, the Bici Lab Museum (with virtual reality activities), the Motorcycle Museum and the Miniature Museum. If you want to discover what life was like in the past, don't miss the house-museums (such as Casa Rull, Casa Cristo and Casa Areny Plandolit) or those that recreate old crafts, such as La Farga Rossell.
Easily accessible viewpoints
In recent years, Andorra has seen a proliferation of viewpoints with spectacular natural vistas and easy access so everyone can enjoy them. This is true of the Tibetan Bridge in Canillo, the Roc del Quer and the Solar Viewpoint in Tristaina.
