Tubbing, or the art of hurtling down snowy slopes sitting on a buoy
Well beyond skiing and snowboarding, the spearheads of winter sports, snow offers many other opportunities to have a good time and enjoy the joys of winter in Andorra. Snowtubbing ranks at the top of the list of new favorite leisure activities for families during the winter holidays. If you do not know yet, it is urgent to try it during your next trip to the Andorran Pyrenees! Snowtubbing consists of sitting on a big buoy (the giant "inflatable donut" used by Water Parks) to start sliding on a specially designed snowy track dotted with banked turns and tunnels. Between sledding and bobsleighing, the boat portends incredible sensations and high risks of laughter!
