Andorra is located between Spain and France in the Pyrenees mountains. Andorra is that kind of destination that you want to come back over and over again, and it doesn ́t matter if it is winter or summer time. We went several times, and it is surprised us every time. In winter time it looks like in a fairy tale, so if you are not a ski lover, then you can enjoy the beauty of this land, while others are skiing. A popular skiing destination there is Grandvalira resort, as it is the largest ski area in the micro state. It offers around 66 lifts and many slopes for each skill level.
Bardonecchia is located in the Piedmont region, Metropolitan City of Turin. That is why it is really fast and easy to get there from Turin. And, believe me, it is just a perfect destination for 1 day trip with kids. Bardonecchia is a small village, but due to tourism increased a lot. And you can clearly see, that lots of houses are for rent and there are no people living in those. A great part of the area is Bardonecchia ski area, where you can enjoy it no matter your level of proficiency is.

The resort is heralded as Europe’s sunniest, enjoying over 80 per cent of the season in sunshine and on the rare occasions that the snowfall doesn’t oblige, there’s the modern artificial snow system comprising 353 cannons and covering a massive 35 kilometers of piste.
La Molina is one of the oldest ski resorts in Spain. It is located in Cerdanya region. It offers a wide range of activities for those who are professional skiers and for those who are less. And here to mention, it is one of our favorites, as whenever we find time, we go there and enjoy the slopes.
