If you’re after a winter getaway that’s a little bit different AND won’t cost you the earth, Andorra is ideal. You’ll find the landlocked principality high up in the Pyrenees Mountains, with just an hour of driving distance between its two borders.

People have been skiing in Andorra for decades, however, recent modernisation has elevated it to one of Europe’s most popular snow sports destinations. Affordable ski resorts are awash with awesome amenities, from thermal spas to authentic Andorran eateries, and it’s location between France and Spain gives it a truly unique cuisine and culture. The added bonus of low taxes makes everything - from hotels to shopping - much cheaper than your classic Alpine retreat, too.

Altitude (max): 2,560m
Skiing: 63km
Transfer time: Toulouse - 2h50; Barcelona - 2h50

Found on Andorra’s western fringes, Arinsal is criss-crossed with over 60km of pistes, some of which reach over 2500m in altitude. It’s one of the principality’s smallest resorts, however, its stunning vistas and location between two charming mountain villages makes it particularly picturesque.

El Tarter

Altitude (resort): 1,750m
Altitude (max): 2,640m
Skiing: 210km
Transfer time: Toulouse - 2h30; Barcelona - 2h50

Another resort in Grandvalira that’s a playground for less experienced skiers is El Tarter. Almost half of its runs are easy blues, while a peaceful atmosphere and limited number of rowdy bars makes it a top pick for family groups.

Speaking of families, those with young kids will love El Tarter’s specially designed nursery runs. It’s additionally linked to Soldeu if you fancy having your pick of both resorts’ pistes.

Pas de la Casa

Altitude (resort): 2,080m
Altitude (max): 2,640m
Skiing: 210km
Transfer time: Toulouse - 2h20; Barcelona - 2h40

Pas de la Casa in the Grandvalira region has built up a bit of a reputation as a party resort over the years. Nevertheless, its vast array of ski runs and contemporary infrastructure also makes it a popular pick for families and those after a stress-free getaway.

As the resort borders France, you can expect a slightly more French influenced ski culture. Pas de la Casa is also a paradise for snowboarders thanks to its board park, while beginner skiers will benefit from excellent ski schools with English-speaking instructors.

Soldeu

Altitude (resort): 1,710m
Altitude (max): 2,640m
Skiing: 210km
Transfer time: Toulouse - 2h20; Barcelona - 3h

Linked with nearby Pas de la Casa and El Tarter by a network of state-of-the-art ski lifts, Soldeu now forms part of the huge 200km Grandvalira region. Its ski slopes are set around an attractive mountain village that’s home to some amazing restaurants and friendly live music venues.

If you’re hoping to hone your ski skills, you won’t be disappointed by Soldeu’s 10+ black runs and off-piste skiing. It’s also a prime area for dog sledding through spectacular snowy scenery.

I've booked with My Swft for the last 3 years, 4 holidays in total. This year was even better. The new online booking is really simple to be able to share with the group and get people to choose a location. Then everyone managing their own booking makes it even easier for the group leader!

Choosing a ski resort in Andorra

Best for après
Best for après

Andorra’s low taxes makes partying pretty cheap. For the greatest range of bars and clubs, you have to book a ski trip to Pas de la Casa. The largest of the Andorra ski resorts, it tends to draw in a younger crowd due to its pocket-friendly prices and ample late night après options.

Best for après
Best for families

Treating the kids to a winter break this year? Book a ski holiday to Andorra’s Arinsal or Soldeu resorts which have numerous family-friendly hotels and some epic off-piste activities. Both are also less than 45 minutes to Naturlandia, a must-visit ecopark in south Andorra where you can try things like dog sledding and snowshoeing for a very reasonable price.

Best for après
Best for big groups

Big group ski breaks call for resorts with an abundance of accommodation and pistes for all skiing levels. You can’t really beat Pas de la Casa as not only is it massively varied when it comes to its runs, but there’s also numerous bars – on and off the slopes – for rowdy or relaxed nights out.

Best for après
Best for beginners

If someone in your group is a newbie to skiing or snowboarding, choosing a resort with great nursery slopes is key. El Tarter is brilliant for beginners as its main ski zone is mostly easy blue runs and a few kids’ areas. Plus, if there are more advanced skiers in your group, it’s only a quick chairlift ride to neighbouring Soldeu with its slightly trickier pistes.

Best for après
Best snow-sure

As Andorra is fortunate enough to be perched at a high altitude, almost all of its resorts are snow-sure. Your best chance of seeing perfect powder is at Pas de la Casa and Soldeu in the Grandvalira region. Both have slopes at over 1800m, plus recent investment in hundreds of snow cannons means at least 60% of the region’s runs are always covered in snow.

What about ski weekends in Andorra?

Andorra’s low prices and flexible hotels means it’s a great spot for a shorter ski weekend. Flights tend to be quite cheap to Barcelona and Toulouse, and transfer times of under three hours means you’ll have plenty of time left to ski.

As it’s so close to some of France and Spain’s coolest cities, why not combine skiing in Andorra with a culture-packed city break?
