Arinsal, located towards Andorra’s western border with Spain, is part of Andorra’s Vallnord ski region which includes the Pal and Arinsal ski areas, with runs totalling almost 60 miles. There are two separate and very distinct villages - Arinsal is more lively with lots of night life, and La Massana which has more shops and restaurants. The resorts are 6 kilometres apart and connected by bus that runs until 9pm. Both Arinsal and La Massana are family-orientated and offer you access to some of the best-value skiing anywhere in Europe.

Skiing and snowboarding in Arinsal 

Between both villages there are plenty of well-prepared confidence building runs making it an ideal destination if you and your group are made up of beginners and intermediates. The radical ‘Freestyle Area’ also caters well for snowboarders. The season runs from December till mid-April and snow here is good until the end of season thanks to most of the slopes being covered by snow canons. 

Where to stay in Arinsal 

Arinsal is a very friendly village and is well suited to couples and families. We offer a range of hotels in both Arinsal and La Massana so you can choose the village that's best suited to you. Whether you simply want a base and plan on spending most of your time on the mountains or you'd like the whole package with access to wellness and relaxation areas, we're sure you'll find something that ticks all your boxes. 

Bars and restaurants in Arinsal

Throughout both villages, there are great international places to eat including some Argentinian steak houses, Mexican restaurants and pizzerias. There are also a selection of bars and Irish pubs, with most restaurants and bars being family friendly. Après ski is more lively in Arinsal than La Massana and one of the firm favourites is an open bar and club known as Surf which has live DJ performances as well as a restaurant area. 

Ski deals in Arinsal
