Ski holidays in Arinsal

An established favourite with UK skiers and boarders, and exceptional value for money

Arinsal, located towards Andorra’s western border with Spain, is part of Andorra’s Vallnord ski region which includes Pal and Ordino-Arcalis, with runs totalling almost 60 miles. There are two separate villages. Arinsal is more lively and La Massana is quieter and more family-orientated but both offer some of the best-value skiing anywhere in Europe. Great hospitality, long sunny days and plenty of well-prepared confidence building runs make it an ideal destination for beginners and intermediates, whilst the radical ‘Freestyle Area’ caters well for snowboarders. The Arinsal gondola accesses the Arinsal area whilst Pal is reached from La Massana but both ski areas are linked by cable car, and the lift pass also covers the intermediate ski area of Arcalis. Arinsal’s skiing is in a narrow open bowl, and its neighbour Pal has predominantly wooded slopes. Nightlife in Arinsal is lively with a choice of bars and clubs operating well into the small hours. Families are also well catered for in Arinsal, with an excellent kindergarten and child lift pass offers.
