Sitting at 1720 meters high up in Andorra between France and Spain, Soldeu retains the best of both cultures and is a popular resort for families and skiers in search of something that little bit different. The village itself manages to retain its Andorran charm, whilst at the same time being the home to some lively après-ski and nightclubs.

In recent years the skiing has dramatically improved thanks to the linking up of Soldeu and El Tarter villages with the neighbouring resorts of Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig, Canillo and Encamp to create the impressive Grandvalira ski area, which covers a half dozen peaks and enables skiers to ski down from 2600 meters. The numbers certainly are impressive 67 lifts, 200 kilometres of slopes, a great mix of pistes for all abilities, over 100 000 lift capacity and the longest run of 8 kilometres. There are even free list passes for under fives and over 71’s!
There’s a wide range of accommodation in Soldeu, but why not try something unique to the area - a Bordas (or local inn) or converted farmhouse. Most guests arrive via Barcelona or Toulouse airports and opt for a private transfer or rental car.
