The Hotel Palarine is located just outside of Arinsal in Erts. Run by a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you feel at home.

A lovely retreat after a day of walking the local area

The hidden garden, provides a small oasis of calm alongside the river in summer. Many guests dip their feet into the fresh water to cool down after a day’s hike. Children will also be happy here, with plenty of card and board games on hand, and rooms available for up to four. Rooms are generous in size and decorated in a simple yet modern style.

Don't miss the hotel restaurant

The hotel is available on bed and breakfast only but for those looking for somewhere to dine in the evening there’s a great restaurant onsite that is open most nights of the week (see food and drinks tab for more info on opening days), the food always gets rave reviews here with themed buffet evenings adding to the enjoyment as well as a great atmosphere and friendly staff.

Arinsal

The mountain village of Arinsal drapes itself along a valley in the north-west of Andorra, not far from the Spanish border. The forested slopes of the Pyrenees close in on either side – a preview of the walking and cycling territory that’s the highlight of a summer holiday in this neck of the woods. Back at base, the restaurants and cafés are as international as their clientele. For a change of scene, hop on a bus to La Massana and its family-friendly adventure park or head to the capital city of Andorra La Vella. 

Walking in Comapedrosa Nature Park: the top of Andorra

Comapedrosa Nature Park lies just north of Arinsal, where you can hike marked paths to high mountain waterfalls, lakes and forests – all watched over by Coma Pedrosa itself which, at almost 3,000m tall, is Andorra’s highest peak. For a walk with a hearty mountain food finale, climb through forests and along a ravine to a stone-clad mountain refuge called – you guessed it – Comapedrosa.

Summer holidays exploring La Massana and the Ordino Valley

Arinsal is the last village up one of the two valleys above La Massana. Just 15 minutes bus ride away from Arinsal you'll find La Massana, a bustling village where the gondola goes up to the treetop ropes courses and playgrounds of a mountain top park. Bike tracks are also up here and range from smooth sidewinding paths to bumpy backcountry trails.

If you prefer boots to bikes, follow the river valley from La Massana to the start of the Camí Ral d’Ordino footpath. It’s an easy 6km trail connecting valley villages, wooden bridges and churches. It also traces part of the Iron Route that follows the history of the forges and mines in this patch of the Pyrenees.

Biking on the agenda?

Whilst Arinsal is a walkers paradise in the summer, some may be interested to hear that there are hundreds of bike-friendly routes and roads around Arinsal but particularly in the nearby town of La Massana, with rentals ranging from road bikes and MTBs to e-bikes that help make long-distance rides achievable for more casual cyclists.

For those interested in sporting events, you may have heard of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup that takes place every summer in the Vallnord bike park above La Massana. It’s impossible not to get swept along with the joy of the spectators, who travel from all over to watch cyclists speed down some seriously hair-raising trails.

Family holidays in Arinsal

Arinsal is a great destination for families with a range of activities on offer as well as a selection of hotels with family-friendly facilities available. Kids will love the Mountain Park in the nearby town of La Massana, you catch the gondola up the mountain and at the top there are numerous games and activities. There are also plenty of walking trails in the area that cater to different abilities so if you're after family friendly walks or a bit more of a challenge then there's plenty to keep you on the trails.

The hotels in Arinsal also have great facilities for kids, the hotel Princesa Parc even has an on site bowling alley (additional charge), great fun for all the family.

Europe’s highest capital: Andorra La Vella

The capital city of Andorra la Vella is a 30-minute bus ride away from Arinsal and a great day-trip to enjoy its lively summer atmosphere. Wander the stone-walled old quarter to see Casa de la Vall, the seat of one of the longest-running parliaments in Europe, and past the handsome St Esteve Church. The riverside park is a lovely walk too. Restaurants, stylish spas, including the Caldea spa which is the largest thermal spa in Southern Europe and the famous tax-free Shopping Mile also offer a break from the trails. Once a month, Mercat de la Vall hosts local craftspeople selling everything from homemade sweets and aromatherapy oils to screen-printed t-shirts and jewellery.
