The hills are so steep to fly down on a bike!!
The hills are so steep to go up!
In a nutshell
Unspoilt & uncrowded
The Val d'Incles goes off from the main road between Soldeu and El Tartar and is a great place to start a walking holiday in the Soldeu area.
There are a small number of picturesque and attractive houses dotted along the end of the valley cloest to the road and a cafe near the main road itself.
Getting to the valley from Soldeu does involve a less than pleasant walk along the main road and this is mainly without the benefit of pavements. Once you reach the valley you will see it is worth it!
As you make the journey along the valley you feel more and more remote and away from the world. There are a number of mountain horses which are likely to come and try to share your packed lunch so watch out!
The walk along the main part of the valley is easy going and for the most part it is flat. Further along you start to make more of a climb up towards the Font de Trevenc. It was well worth the effort of hiking up here for the views and the peace and quiet (not to mention the sense of satisfaction) and you can go further upwards still. I didn't feel quite confident and fit enough to do so but I'm told it is better the further along the path you go.

There is a hotel called AHotels Hotel Piolets Park & Spa in Soldeu and it has great spa facilities. After a days walking or biking it is a great place to go and relax and unwind.
They charge about £6 each to use their swimming pools, steam room, sauna, indoor and outdoor jacuzzi - and you don't even have to take your own towel, they provide them.
Lovely hotel, beautiful facilities

Address: Main road through Soldeu
There is an excellent stables and riding school in Soldeu called the Centre D'Equitacio Calbo.
The horses are in lovely condition and the guides will take you down the mountain, along the river bank and up through forests. I'd recommend this company. The staff there also speak many languages.
I can't remember the prices, but it was certainly cheaper than the equivalent in the UK.
You can also go Quad Biking here as well.

Address: Soldeu main street!
Travelled to Pas de la Casa to go sledging.
Excellent fun, especially the ramp that was built.
Glad we didn't stop there, bit of a concrete monstrosity.

We all had excellent meals here when I went with 4 friends. I was overwelmed at the choice on offer and particularly can recommend the lobster burgers, home made pizzas and their cocktails in the chill out lounge down stairs gosh what a selection they had.
Staff were very friendly and there were a few very cute ones behind the bar too. The general atmosphere just up my street with music to match Perhaps a little difficult to find I would say but it was certainly worth the effort once we got there.
Will definitely repeat when we go back to El Tarter this winter.
Favorite Dish: The square pizzas - Totally home made with fresh ingredients, thin crispy base and lots of it.

All of the Package Companies run a day shopping trip to Andorra La Vella, the capital of Andorra.
They charge twelve euro for the trip and tell you that you will save a fortune in the duty free shops.
The bus from Soldeu to Andorra La Vella is two euro seventy-five and the shops are no cheaper than in Soldeu!
Unique Suggestions: Go by public transport will save you six euro fifty!
Fun Alternatives: Don't bother though, you came on a skiing holiday so go skiing!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you pack some very warm clothes - layers are best as it can get hot on the slopes. Comfortable clothing is essential - even at night when I would usually dress up a bit - stick with casual clothing and you will be fine.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen (and not the 80s day glo Adam Ant style stuff - puke!), moisturiser (Decleor Comfort Cream is fab), Deep Heat Rub or a massuese on hand to ease the pain at the end of the day and holiday insurance is most essential!

Favorite thing: skiing in soldeu is excellent for beginners and intermediates, and there is a couple of tough runs for advanced too. Because the village is compact, you're never too far from the gondolas. As well as this there are numerous runs down to the village from green to black, so everyone can ski down in the evening. skiing in Soldeu is enjoyable and convenient.

Favorite thing: Soldeu is a great place - I've visited both in the busy winter for skiing/boarding and also summer for the quiet tranquil mountain walking etc.
I found a great website - SoldeuOnline.com which is an online guide to everything related to Soldeu - hotels, apartments, nightlife etc. Well worth checking out before visiting this great place in the mountains.
