Covered with mixed forests, rugged mountains, rivers and narrow valleys, there are endless winter and summer activities for adventurers and thrill seekers.

Snowmobile Trip in Grandvalira, Andorra

In Grandvalira, Andorra, you and your friends can experience the exhilaration of snowmobiling. Being right in between Spain and France, it’s the perfect destination for snow sport enthusiasts. Although you can ride snow mobiles anywhere, there are few places that can provide the stunning winter wonderland atmosphere like Andorra can from the back of a snowmobile.

Your guide will explain how snowmobiles work and how safety rules apply, and after you put on your helmet, you’ll be off and speeding away! During the excursion, alternating fields and forests of black pine will be part of the itinerary, making this a real adventure.

A stop or two will be made in the middle of the trip for you to enjoy the beauty of the winter landscape and to snap some photos alone or with friends. Alternatively, if you are riding on your snowmobile with a companion, you can switch places so that you both can drive.
