One of three winter resorts of Andorra Naturlandia has witnessed an inseparable growth of the amount of tourists in the period from 24th December, 2014 to 6th January, 2015. The majority of the visitors of the park are the citizens of Spain and first of all Catalonia. In accordance to the head of commercial department of the park administration Viki Grau, the growth of the amount of tourists made up 40% in comparison to the previous year.
Because of the amount of precipitations in December, the level of snow cover was insufficient for proper skiing in Andorra. “The infrastructure of entertainment in Naturlandia allows having interesting leisure all year round in spite of the weather. The majority of visitors have selected our park because there was few of snow at the slopes of Grandvalira and Vallnord in December”, noted Viki Grau. Contrary to Grandvalira and Vallnord Naturlandia is not a ski resort, but a topical year-round park.
Meanwhile, on 18th January Naturlandia celebrates a World Day of Snow. This traditional holiday is celebrated on penultimate Sunday of January and is considered to be the symbol of healthy way of life and winter entertainments.
