The village of Pal is quiet and picturesque, in contrast to Arinsal, where rapid development has taken over the past few years. This Andorran resort divides itself into three groupings: family friendly for all ages, the Setunia sector that features slopes surrounded by forests, and the Arinsal sector, which features the highest vertical drop in Andorra. The area is probably best suited to near beginners and early intermediates. Pal's slopes are short and wide and tree-lined, while Arinsal's are tall, narrow and no trees. Definitely a party resort off the slopes. Attractive, in-expensive to get to and stay in and once there it is tax-free!

Visitor Reviews of Vallnord-Arinsal

Sat from United Kingdom writes:

I went to Arinsal for my birthday in January. It is a small town with a lot of character. We stayed at The Husa Patagonia and had heard a few differing reviews of the hotel and place. However, the hotel was very good, with friendly service from staff and clean rooms (a little bit of dust in corners but overall very good). The snow was good and a chairlift located a minute away from our hotel. Arinsal is good for beginners (some might find the green slope a bit tougher than you would normally have on green slopes), experienced boarders would get bored with runs after a few days but overall alot of variety). The food and beer is cheap and the steaks are very good. There are a lot of deals going on in the day: happy hour being 4-7pm (most drinks around 1.50 euro a pint). Some of the best bars are El Surf, Quo Vadis etc and Sisco bar is a smokers paradise :), a lot of reps and instructors with a good vibe and lively atmosphere. They also do some great meals - a big shout out to Gemma, Mick and Jess. The people are very friendly and helpful in the town and I would recommend a visit to the spa in the Princess Park (12euros for 2 hrs in jazz, saunas, steam room etc). Good after a days boarding and nearby. Caldea is a big spa located in Andorra La Vella, however, I would only recommend a visit if you stay over a night and have some treatments as just a daily visit is over priced and a bit like a theme park with a big pool with Jazz etc, overlooked by bar but not as big as it appears in leaflets etc. There is not really a lot to do in La Vella as mainly shops and cheap fags, beers etc. Overall, Arinsal gave us a good, cheap and enjoyable holiday which I would recommend to others. Happy Boarding peeps.
