Arcalis is the hidden jewel of Andorra, offering a fantastic variety of both on and off piste skiing and snowboarding within the resort boundary! The beauty of Arcalis is that there are no hotels at the ski station so there are less people, plus it is higher than Arinsal so there is usually more snow and better quality snow.
Arcalis used to be part of the Vallnord ski area, however it has now moved across to Grandvalira Resorts. This means that you now need a separate lift pass to ski in Arcalis if you only have a Pal-Arinsl lift pass. If you're skiing for six days we do offer a "Ski The North" product, which includes a four-day non-consecutive lift pass for Pal-Arinsal as well as a two-day non-consecutive lift pass for Ordino-Arcalis, which can be booked online here.
Arcalis offer a free minibus shuttle service which will collect you from your accommodation and take you over to Arcalis for the day, and return you at the end. To book this service you should speak to your accommodation reception.
Alternatively, if you have a rental car for your holiday you need to drive down to La Massana, then just as you reach the town turn left towards Ordino. Once you reach Ordino it's left again, now following the signs for Arcalis. The drive is around 40 minutes.
