For those thinking the range of skiing in Andorra simply can't measure up to Alpine resorts, Soldeu is the resort to prove it wrong. Ideally situation to explore the extensive Grandvalira area, offering 210km of pistes, excellent powder opportunities and expertly crafted snow parks to make you reconsider your loyalty to any Alpine resort. Not only that, it also boasts one of Europe's most highly regarded ski schools, with a dedicated English speaking section for English guests. It also boasts the same tax free benefits of its neighboring resort, Pas De La Casa, without the accompanying rowdiness makes Soldeu the perfect destination for families and learners.

The Grandvalira ski area is shared with several alternative bases. Chief among them is Pas de la Casa, near the French border; El Tarter, a few miles down the valley from Soldeu, also has both lifts and return pistes. Further down still, Canillo and Encamp have gondolas but no pistes. With all this terrain to explore, why not take advantage of our Leaders service based in Soldeu - the perfect way to get familiar with the Grandvalira area. Outings to other resorts in Andorra are possible - Arcalis in particular is worth the trip, but it's easiest by car. 

The town itself does still lack some charm, despite containing an increasing proportion of 4 and 5 star hotels. It makes up for this however in convenience, providing easy access to the ski area thanks to a far more compact village than you may come to expect from Alpine resorts. In addition, there's a plenty of off slope activities as you would expect from a modern high end resort.
