In December you will be able not only to enjoy the variety of Christmas proposals, but also the lights and decorations typical of this time of year. It is the ideal season to visit us, as you can combine skiing and snow activities with the various après-ski Christmas proposals that take place throughout Andorra.
Christmas activities for the whole family
In Canillo, at 5 minutes by car from the hotel, you can follow an itinerary through the town streets, where you will discover the figures of the Nativity scene in real size. In addition, if you visit us on December the 28th or January the 4th, the Palau de Gel organizes a Christmas ice skating gala.
The traditional Advent calendar will also be present, in Encamp and the Pas de la Casa. Every day, at 6:00 pm, a little window will be opened to remind children that Christmas is coming. All the people present during the opening will receive presents with sweets.
In Andorra la Vella: lights, Christmas market and action! Enjoy a lot of activities throughout the town. Like the Christmas market, where you will find handcrafted and local products with a good gastronomic proposal to snack on something while you walk. Or the super slide and a skating rink where children will have a great time, and the illuminated tunnel where every evening there is a show of light and sound. Without forgetting the magical post office: where children can deliver their letters to the menairons (elves of Andorra, friends of Santa Claus) … and much more.
Santa Claus arrival and Kings Parade
December the 24th in the afternoon, Santa Claus will announce his arrival through the streets of the different towns of the country. Sometimes accompanied by his elves, in sleigh, on horseback or in a chariot… at the end he will pick up the letters of the children who have not yet sent it to him.
The same night, at about twelve o’clock or one, Christmas Midnight Mass
is also celebrated in many churches of the country.
On January the 5th, starting at 6pm, the different parades of the Magi will take place in the different towns of Andorra. At the end of these, it will also be the opportunity for the children to be able to hand deliver their cards.
