Arcalis is the least known, least visited, and most remote of all Andorra’s resorts. It has recently joined with Pal/Arinsal forming the VallNord area, the shared lift pass giving you access to 60km of pistes. An undeveloped area, Arcalis doesn’t come with the immediate resort facilities demanded by tour operators and skiers.

The 18 miles of snow-sure terrain is perched much above the tree line, and offers some of the best terrain in the whole principality, with a small number of modest but quite difficult trails. All styles will find that a day or two here is not a waste of money, but hardcore riders will soon get bored.
