The picturesque Andorran town of Soldeu (translated to Sun God) regularly lives up to its name yet still supplies regular top-ups from the “Snow God”. It is the main town of the expansive Grandvalira Ski Area, the largest ski resort in the Pyrenees offering 210 km of skiable pistes suitable for all levels.
At an altitude of 1710m, visitors can ski right into the town’s famous apres scene at the foot of the slopes, quenching the thirst of the multinational clientele that frequent the area in Summer and Winter.
A snow lovers paradise high in the Pyrenean Principality of Andorra, where great skiing, tapas and apres ski go hand in hand
Nestled into the hillside of a wide, forested valley that runs from France through Andorra and on to Spain, Soldeu is very different from what you may be used to seeing of the big hitting resorts of the northern Alps. An ideal base to explore the extensive Grandvalira area
The apres ski scene is still very much on the menu but with more of a chilled Spanish feel.
Most of the resort lies along the valley road meaning that some accomodation on the outskirts can be a 10 minute plus walk into town and lifts, but a free bus operates regularly making it easy to get around.
What happens in Soldeu?
Truly investing in sport Soldeu has 3 international winter competitions : The FIS Ski World Cup, Total Fight Masters of Freeride and the FIS Speed Skating world finals. Sports lovers will be truly inspired by the speed and amplitude of the worlds best then can try all the pistes out for themselves once the show is over.
