Ordino: a picturesque village
The Valira valley and especially the resort of Ordino Arcalis are renowned for their beauty scenery. You won’t find any towering buildings or excessive urban development here. The forest is ubiquitous and the imposing silhouettes of the Serrera (2,912 m), Estanyo (2,915 m) and Pic de Font Blanca (2,903 m) mountains provide a magical backdrop.
Ordino is a traditional village whose narrow streets are lined by stone houses adorned with wrought-iron balconies. Back in 1983 when work began on the resort of Ordino Arcalis, the village lost none of its character. The accommodation buildings added in 1990 were designed to blend in harmoniously with the picturesque buildings.
This compact resort nevertheless has a nice selection of bars and restaurants for sampling local specialities, as well as ski hire shops and souvenir stores. A varied après-ski programme awaits and other activities include exploring the forests on snowshoes and treating yourself to a heliskiing session!
Ski area in Ordino
The Ordino Arcalis ski area has a total of 63 km rising to a height of 2,625 m. Due to their northerly exposure, the 4 green runs, 16 blue runs, 16 red runs and 5 black runs enjoy excellent snow coverage. Beginners can even start out along the longest green run in the Pyrenees – the 8 km long Megaverda.
Ordino-Arcalis is an ideal nature destination for fans of freeriding who can explore off-piste runs that feature on the Freeride World Tour calendar. The resort is also a major centre for ski touring with four secure signposted trails available.
If your heart is set on a freestyle ski rental, then you’re in for a treat!

Budding freestylers should head to the Agustina Magic Park.
