The stunning landscape of the La Massana valley is dominated by an imposing wall of high mountains incorporating Andorra’s highest peak; the Comapedrosa (2946m) and dissected by the Valira Nord and Arinsal rivers. Charming villages scatter La Massana valley where you can also find some interesting Romanesque monuments; in particular the chapel of ‘Sant Antoni de la Graella’ and its nearby bridge which has survived the ravaging waters below it since the middle ages.

The town of La Massana sits in the beautiful valley floor and although a working town at heart the construction of a gondola linking it to the base of the Pal slopes in 2004 has converted La Massana into an ideal place to stay. New hotels and services have developed as a result turning La Massana into the closest ski resort to the capital Andorra La Vella and the Spanish border.

The Gondola link to Pal effectively adds La Massana into the collective Vallnord mountain park, the combination of the Pal-Arinsal and Ordino-Arcalis sectors. A single lift pass now covers the Pal, Arinsal and Arcalis sectors to boast a fine mix of ski, snowboard and freestyle slopes. Alternative activities such as mushing, paragliding, helicopter flights, snow shoeing and snow mobiles abound adding to the mountain park feel, rather than just a ski area making this an excellent family choice.

In summer the Pal-Arinsal sector of the Vallnord mountain park offers an array of activities including 4x4 trails, quad bikes, cross country and downhill mountain bike circuits as well as horse riding, cementing its reputation as a true all year round outdoor activity centre.
