The Vallnord-Pal Arinsal resort is a comprehensive ski area in the Pyrenees with 63 kilometres of ski slopes. The ski area accessible from Arinsal offers a wide variety and choice for skiers of all abilities. With the highest point reaching an altitude of 2,560m, you can be sure to enjoy breathtaking views and good snow conditions. The area offers runs connected by over 30 lifts; the majority of which are reds and blues which intermediates will enjoy cruising on.
Our delightful modern hotel is situated in a privileged position at the foot of the ski resort offering an enviable ski in location in the resort of Arinsal. The hotel is a mere 50 metres away from the 6 seat ski lift which takes you up to the ski slopes of the ski resort of Vallnord – Pal Arinsal.
This comfortable hotel offers a bar, cosy lounge with fireplace, restaurant, free Wi-Fi, ski lockers and access to the Fitness and Relaxation area which includes exterior Austral bath, fitness area, individual Swedish sauna, wet suana and massage room ( charges apply and reserve in advance while in resort)
All the well furnished rooms come with fridge, Wi-Fi, safe, satellite TV, fully equipped bathroom, amenities, heating.
The transfer from Barcelona Airport to the hotel is approximately 3 hours, depending on weather and traffic.
You may either take group ski lessons, private ski lessons or form groups to enjoy exploring the slopes together. Whatever you preference your Tour Leader will be available to help organise your skiing.
Poor piste conditions can be hazardous to ski equipment as uncovered rocks and stones can easily scratch and damage skis and snowboards. We strongly recommend you inspect your ski hire equipment at the start of your holiday and agree the state of their condition with the ski hire suppliers, as clients are responsible for the care of their hired equipment and should this equipment be damaged the ski hire suppliers are within their rights to ask for a compensation payment.
We recommend that you pre-book your ski equipment as this saves time on arrival and costs are lower when pre-booked. Once in resort it is very important to have ski boots that are comfortable and fit well, so do not be afraid to keep going back and changing your boots until you get a good fit. For your safety, we advise that you wear a ski helmet wherever possible.
On a skiing holiday, dress is generally very informal, the emphasis being on comfort and warmth. We recommend that you pack a pair of skiing trousers and warm ski jacket or a waterproof shell and separate fleece lining or an all-in-one ski suit. Thermal or silk underwear is recommended. Cotton/cotton mix roll necks, T-shirts or sweat shirts; several thin layers are better than one thick layer. Ski socks, ski gloves or mitts and a hat or headband are suggested. Where temperatures are expected to be well below zero, take a face-mask or balaclava. Moon boots or waterproof walking shoes are a “must”. Suntan cream (high protective factor), lip salve, sunglasses and/or goggles are all very useful items to pack. Casual clothes are ideal for the evenings; it is unusual on skiing holidays to dress formally in the evenings.
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on. If you choose to have ski lessons, you may also like to thank your ski instructor at the end of the week with a token of appreciation.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
