Canillo is a relaxed ski town that is situated high up in the popular Grandvalira ski area of Andorra. It is especially liked by families due to the number of nursery slopes for the little ones and since it doesn’t receive the same level of crowds as other resorts, there is very little pressure to find your feet here. With its 128 slopes of different levels, Canillo is appealing to skiers of all levels.

This resort has some excellent skiing facilities but there are still plenty of other things to do away from the slopes, making it an attractive destination to visit throughout the winter seasons. Some of the activities include ice-skating, ice-karting and even a zip-line from the top of the Canillo gondola - the fastest zip-line in the Pyrenees! That is sure to get your blood pumping.
Back to the skiing though, Canillo is one of the best resorts for beginners to start out their skiing journey. The ski school here was voted one of the best in Europe and with its high number of easy slopes, it is the perfect place for younger ones and beginners to get used to the snow. Intermediates and advanced skiers will both find some excellent slopes to explore too. With 210km of piste to explore in the whole of the Grandvalira, the speedy slopes never seem to run out in this famous ski region.
The accommodation in Canillo itself is quite small-scale with only a few apartments and hotels to choose from. However, since the area of Grandvalira is so expansive and well-connected, staying in a different resort with more accommodations to suit your preference is never really an issue. There are a small selection of bars and restaurants to choose from in Canillo when you get peckish and the food gets consistently high reviews from visitors.
