  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    One of the six main ski stations in the Grandvalira ski-resort - the others being Grau Roig, Funicamp (from Encamp), Soldeu, Pas de la Casa and El Tarter.

    You take the 6 person cable car up from the village itself (not free parking in Canillo). It has a ski school, medical clinic, restaurant complex and large sun terrace with play park.

    There are only a couple of pistes terminating here, and a couple of chair-lifts - but the aspect is perfect as it is south facing.

  • Getting there? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    The ski station is only accessible by the cable car from Canillo town. You can ski from any of the other Grandvalira ski stations via the mountain.

    Parking is available in Canillo town (for those without hotel, apartment or chalet parking), but it is fairly expensive.

    If you are coming from further afield you may prefer to park in either El Tarter or Grau Roig car parks and take the telecabina up - these both have big car parks and are free.

    There is a track suitable for 4x4 which would be passable in the summer; in the winter the snow is likely to make it not possible. All the grandvalira ski stations (up the mountains) are connected by pistes, so you can start in Canillo and ski halfway across the country all the way to the French border at Pas de la Casa.

  • Summer Activities You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    Summer in Canillo can be something special. The cable car is open in the holidays and at the top of the mountain they keep a few ski monitors employed skeleton-staffing the place. It is lovely time of year to come, hardly anyone around, and the weather is typically amazing blue-skies and hot in the sunshine. At the top of the mountain there is very little noise, and is super peaceful. There is a "lake", actually a man-made water reservoir that they operate a few canoes, and peddle-boats, and this year I saw some "one-child" pedalos (very cute)
  • Zip Line You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    This is a new feature since summer 2016.  It was free as part of the MontMagic summer promotion, but my 10 year old son was unable to have a go as he was below the height limit.  

    The guys operating appeared to be local young lads, and appeared professional.

    It appears that it will be operating in the winter, according to the Grandvalira site.

    There are some limits reproduced here:

    The Mon(t) Magic Family Park Canillo has a zip line of 550 meters route with a height of 40 meters and speeds up to 80 km / h downhill.

    This activity can be performed in the following ways:

    ·   Sitting position being necessary to weight minimum 35 kg and máximum 120kg

    ·   Extended position or hang gliding, minimum weight 50 kg and máximum 115kg

    ·    Tandem mode (child + adult), children from 20kg mínimum; minimum weight together (child + adult) 105kg, maximum overall weight (adult + child) 120kg.

    It’s an opportunity to enjoy the best views over the lake ’Llac del Forn’ and experience the adrenaline in the heart of nature.

    The activity will also remain active in summer season, being operational and available to visitors and skiers during almost all year long.

    Important:
    For this activity you must have ski pass either skier or pedestrian ski pass.
    Activity available from 09:30 am.
    To be weighed, go first to the info point Forn-Canillo.

    Notes:

    Activity that can be performed with ski boots.
    Option of leaving your skis at the point info Forn-Canillo.
    After the activity you must walk 5 minutes to the Junior Chairlift.
    Kids, minimum weight 35 kg

    * Activity subject to weather conditions.

  • What can you eat here? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    There are three main places to eat. A snack bar serving hotdogs and hamburgers at one end of the long terrance. A cafeteria with glass displays of the sandwiches and desserts in the centre, and at the far end a full service restaurant for the typical Andorran big lunch. There is a terrace that runs the whole way along offering super-spectacular views.
  • Views You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    Most ski-stations have good views, but this one (together with the restaurant at Funicamp) are particularly good. If you have family members that maybe cannot get on the pistes, but want to dine in-style with a breathtaking view; this this place is a good option. You can walk quite easily from the termination of the cable car, utilising a covered-way for most of the distance, just some snow to get past - wear good boots.
  • Mini-Golf You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    Summer activity: there is a nine hole mini-golf circuit. It is a bit "weather-worn" - the ball rolls a little randomly, and doesn't include any fancy obstacles but play is included in the price of the mon(t)magic ticket - the attendant charges a euro deposit for the ball which is returned.
  • Tubing You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    There is a "tubbing" ride (as it is known in Spain) here in the summer. It utilises the baby-piste conveyor to bring the tubes and the kids back. They hose water down the slope to make the tubes slide. The kids 7 & 10 enjoyed this greatly, and you can have unlimited goes with the hand-band ticket purchase. They have to put on a helmet and hair-protector (maybe helps prevent lice transmission in the helmet - good idea anyway).
  • Inflatable Castle You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    There was one large inflatable castle. It can be very quiet so was perfect for the kids as they got the thing to themselves. It was a bit hot under the blazing sun, but great fun anyway. The price is included in the day ticket.

      • Mirador Roc Del Quer

        The Mirador Roc del Quer is an extended platform out into the valley with a sculpture of a bronze man sitting on the end of a girder.  Art and engineering combine to make a natural and man made spectacle.

        You will have seen it high up above Canillo village if you staying there or skiing there.

        Perfect for a morning or afternoon stroll for young and old: 5/10 mins walk from the car park - get a fantastic view of the Canillo valley, or alternatively double-check you still get vertigo.

        Certainly open in the summer; check access in winter - the mayor of canillo pronounced that it would be open in winter too, at the opening ceremony - but best to check with these things;  heavy snowfall will block the road and access path for sure.

      • Grandvalira Estació de Ski El Tarter

        Next to the urbanisation of El Tarter and at the base of the gondola is the free car parking areas. Big for Andorra is gets very busy.

        There are 3 main areas; the primary one (1-on map) outside the cable car and new offices for Grandvalira, an older one (2-on map) over the river and towards the Llop Gris hotel and the Calbo rental store - this one has a chairlift going up as the most suitable.

        And if you drive further up toward Soldeu just about 200metres there is another bridge with access to the nordic hotel, keep going up there are there are overflow car parks (3-on map) with pretty much direct access to the piste - you will have to ski back down just a little way to catch a ride back up, and make sure you come down the correct run, to avoid having to walk back up to where you've parked the car.

        A word of warning - don't park too close to the new huge "mushroom" shaped cover for the goldola base unless you prepared for an avalanche of snow as the day warms up.   At some point durning the day the snow will all come off in a one-er!

      • Esports Sensació

        Esports Sensacio is a ski rental shop in the centre of La Massana.

        Run by Alain (originally from France, but lived in Andorra since the 80s) and his wife Belinda who hails from St. Louis, MO in the States - Esports Sensació was the first ski rental place in La Massana.

        Because Alain speaks good English (his wife Belinda is American), and they have many years experience living in the Andorran mountains they can give you the right advice and sell/rent you the correct kit. They know what you need and will prescribe correctly; even at the cost of lost sales to themselves. This I think is the reason for their continued success in a town with many ski rental places.

        They are open from 9am (8.30 weekends) until 8pm - the note on the door says they take lunch between 1pm and 3pm, but since Alain is the owner/operator you will generally find him around - look over the road to the Bura Tino restaurtant and ask in there if you happen on the store in the day and it is appears closed.

        • Visited during the summer, it offers a lot of activities and entertainment for the whole family. With a bracelet that you buy at the base of the cable car you can access different games or activities to do then in the top station. Very funny and beautiful landscapes, also for trekking is not bad, I recommend a visit if you are in Andorra for a few days.
