Cross-country skiing 

There are several circuits at the Ordino Arcalís ski resort for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. These routes are suitable for all levels and give you the chance to explore breathtaking landscapes and admire unspoilt mountain scenery. You will need a Mountain Pass to use these routes and you also have the option of hiring Grandvalira Mountain Guides' expert services.
