On the hunt for the Tamarros
Have you ever heard of the Tamarros? They are magical little creatures whose mission is to protect nature and the environment. They are very difficult to spot, but we know there are 7 of them in Andorra, one hidden in each parish. With this brief introduction and the guide provided by the country's tourist offices, you have all the ingredients you need to embark on an adventure that is sure
The forest of the Menairons
Located in Pal, a visit to the Forest of the Menairons will guarantee a magical adventure in the heart of nature. On a route of around 4 kilometres, the little ones will interact with the forest to discover the surprises and games it conceals. The tourist offices will provide you with notebooks to help you discover the forest as a family, both in summer and winter.
Where are the mushrooms?
In Canillo, on the main road to Montaup (the same one that takes you to the Tibetan Bridge and the Roc del Quer), you will find a fun 4-kilometre route that will let you discover and learn about the most common mushrooms in Andorra. Like the other routes for families, you can find a guide with all the explanations of the main thread of the story in the tourist offices.
Tracks and footprints
A totally recreational, circular route that’s just a couple of kilometres long and will let you discover the native fauna of Andorra. It is located on the Cortals road. Thanks to the riddles, games and quizzes that you will find in the route guide (also available at tourist offices), you will learn to recognise the main species of Andorra's native animals from their footprints.
The village of Juberri, in Sant Julià de Lòria, hides this curious garden with large sculptures. It is a private but freely accessible garden where the owners have placed works representing all kinds of animals (sheep, panda bears, elephants, giraffes, etc.), human figures and models of Romanesque churches.
Ordino Living Forest
In the Bosc Viu d'Ordino (Living Forest) you can discover the endearing origins of the Tió de Nadal with your family (in the Catalan-speaking territories, in the run-up to Christmas, it is a tradition to feed and shelter a tree trunk. Before dinner on 24 December, the youngest members of the family poke the Tió with sticks. If it has eaten a lot in the days leading up to the festivities, it will drop sweets and presents).
In addition to being the forest where the Tiós originate, in the Bosc Viu you can also see nearly 30 sculptures that are fully integrated into the natural landscape to make the walk a magical experience.
Enjoy a spa experience with your children without leaving the hotel. At Park Spa Mountain Wellness Club, you will all be able to access the spa (no age limit for children) during the Spa Family hours.
Every afternoon, our entertainment team organises activities and workshops to ensure they have a great time: Children under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult.
