Soldeu  and El Tarter lie in the parish (administrative division) of Canillo some 17km NE of the capital of Andorra between Andorra La Vella and the French border at Pas de la Casa (2085m). Arguably the best known area in Andorra for skiing, Soldeu and El Tarter (neighbour villages) are lively, good value for money, modern and friendly, with great skiing and snowboarding facilities. In summer, Soldeu is popular with walkers and golfers who make the most of the beautiful scenery. In winter the Soldeu weather conditions change dramatically with excellent snow conditions providing excellent terrain for skiing and snowboarding.
The national bus service runs through Soldeu both in the direction of Pas de la Casa and the French border, and in the direction of Andorra la Vella (the captial city of Andorra) where there are frequent connections nationally and internationally. There isn't a train service in Andorra and there is no airport, the closest being La Seu d'Urgell in Spain, although this is very small.
There isn't a taxi rank in Soldeu, the nearest being in Andorra la Vella.
Wonderful scenery and skiing at these resorts.
The skiing in Soldeu is good for all levels, and there are some advanced descents for the more experienced skier through the powder fields below Pic d'Encampadana.
For snowboarders, Soldeu’s half pipe and an additional natural half-pipe makes the resort a popular choice. Allso has an excellent bumps stadium for the advanced skier.
Outside of the ski season there is some great hiking to be had in the mountains surrounding this area. It is an ideal place for starting off from.
The traditional local food is Catalan so is very hearty 'mountain' food of which one of the most popular is a blood sausage with pale beans. Outside of the local food, Soldeu restaurants cater for the tourist trade therefore there is a wide selection of flavours and influences from around the world.
