One of the big differences between Andorra ski resorts such as Grandvalira and other destinations is the vibrant night life one can find.

One can then clear their head with some of the best powder, slopes, sunshine and facilities you can find in any of Europe’s premier ski resorts.
How to get to Grandvalira
Due to the region’s relatively small size, Andorra doesn’t actually have its own airport. Therefore, the best way to get to Grandvalira is via Spain or France. The largest airport in close proximity is Barcelona and the nearest is l’Alguaire de Lleida. Girona and Reus are also close but will not have the range of times and options the larger airports provide. When travelling from France, the main airports are Rivesaltes airport in Perpignan and Blagnac airport in Toulouse. Once at the airport in question, you need to get a shuttle bus, hire car or taxi to your chosen hotel or luxury accommodation.
If you haven’t already added this place to your bucket list then what are you waiting for. So much to offer that will make the experience unforgettable.
