Enjoy beautiful moments with your family or friends with unique and enriching experiences in the resort of Baqueira Beret. We crafted a selection of playful, authentic, relaxing, sensational and fun activities for you to have an ultra-pleasant stay in one of our Baqueira Beret accommodations.
A true adventure sport and refreshing activity par excellence, rafting allows you to share an extreme, yet safe experience with friends or family. In Val d'Aran, a 9 km descent awaits you on the Garona River, which the Aranese consider the true source of the Garonne River. The experience takes place twice a day, one in the morning from 10:30 to 14:00 and the other in the afternoon from 15:30 to 18:30. It's up to you to choose which time you prefer to get wet.
The Catalan Pyrenees offer the perfect setting for road and mountain biking. Whether you prefer to climb the peaks, hurtle down the demanding signposted routes of the Aspres circuit or the Donjons Cathares, or go to the cycle paths of the Baronnies or the Pays de Sault, there is no shortage of opportunities to get your pedal to the metal in a fabulous setting.
Travelling through the coniferous forests on a snowmobile is both exhilarating and tremendously soothing. You can reach places that are usually inaccessible and enjoy the untouched landscape. This two-seater snowmobile trip follows a 12 km route, with a 200 m difference in altitude, between Beret and Montgarri, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the white landscape.
A sled ride is an exciting activity for young and old alike. There are two possibilities for you and your family: an outing with dogs or with horses. We are tempted to recommend both, as the experiences are so complementary and enriching. A sled ride in Montgarri is certainly the most beautiful and authentic way to experience this postcard setting.
Learn about the different types of climbing and the limestone and granite walls found in the Spanish Pyrenees during a climbing session in a natural environment supervised by mountain guides. There are several routes in the Aiguestortes and Sant Maurici National Park to choose from, depending on the level and age of the participants, the season and the weather conditions.
Surrounded by gardens as far as the eye can see, the Vermont has taken up residence in the former clubhouse of the Salardú golf course. You will be welcomed in one of three areas, depending on your choice: the restaurant area dedicated to Mediterranean cuisine, the raclette area, which is only open in winter, or the lounge bar where you can have a drink and even dance. You will appreciate the warm, chic and cosy atmosphere of the place as well as its unobstructed view of the Val d'Aran peaks.
Casa Irene welcomes you in two atmospheres, classic or modern, to taste its refined and sophisticated cuisine. Open only in the evening to hotel guests during the summer and to all during the ski season, this restaurant in Arties is one of the most renowned in Baqueira Beret. Guests particularly appreciate the gastronomic menu with wine and food pairings that will make your taste buds travel. Not to be missed!
A simple, hearty and gourmet cuisine awaits you every winter in the heart of the Bonaigua ski resort. In addition to sharing a moment of conviviality with your guests, you will enjoy the view of the Val d'Aran and Benasque and the Pic du Midi in the background. The establishment is located at the top of the Port de la Bonaigua, at an altitude of 2072 metres, which is the perfect setting for a gourmet break.
This is certainly the most VIP address in Baqueira Beret! In this chic and festive apres-ski mecca, everyone walks around with a glass of Moët & Chandon champagne in hand, of course. The bubbles can be accompanied by refined dishes, specially prepared to match them. All this is enjoyed in a very trendy setting with a superb terrace in the middle of the slopes.
The Naturaran adventure park welcomes children and adults from the age of 4 for a thrilling ride. A circuit in the trees dedicated to the young ones allows them to move in complete safety, while three other routes of varying difficulty encourage the older children to test their balance, their skill and their composure. At the end of the day, everyone will have fond memories of the time spent on the zip lines and other modules of these tree climbing courses located in Les.
The Val d'Aran Wildlife Park offers a two-hour tour of the mountain wildlife in semi-freedom. You will have the opportunity to meet about fifteen species, including the very memorable wolves, marmots, large deer, ibexes, bears, lynxes, otters and vultures. This visit should preferably be made with a pair of binoculars so that you don't miss anything of this living spectacle which extends over 20 hectares and is played out before the dazzled eyes of children and adults alike.
Ready to face the cold weather in the best company? Embark with your family on a memorable dog sledging trip in the middle of the forest. Depending on the package you choose, you can go for a 20-minute ride or a half-day ride with a meal served at the Montgarri refuge. Children will love to see how eager the dogs are to take you to their favourite playground.
Is the weather not suitable for skiing? The Vielha Ice Palace offers a different indoor skating experience. On their skates, young and old alike can test their sense of balance and improve their figures on this 56-metre long and 26-metre wide ice rink, which is used to host figure skating, ice hockey and curling competitions throughout the year.
The Val d'Aran is full of natural treasures that you will be delighted to discover with your children on a walking tour. There are several recommended routes for families, with varying lengths and difficulties depending on the level of the little walkers. You can visit the Mair de Diu dera Artiga hermitage, walk through the Baricauba forest, have lunch at the Bòrda de Montjòia brewery or walk along the Pomero waterfall. There is no shortage of places to see!
Whether you want to go for a walk in a welcoming natural environment and admire the scenery, or learn the basics of horse riding in a riding school, the Vielha riding centre is there to introduce you to the pleasures of horse riding. In winter, you can also enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride for a timeless moment to share with your family.
Located in an old fortified house dating from the 17th century, this museum offers visitors an insight into the history of Val d'Aran. It is a place of memory and preservation of the local cultural heritage that should not be missed if you want to learn more about the traditions and history of the Aranese territory. Numerous educational activities and exhibitions are regularly held here to offer you an entertaining experience.
The extraction of zinc ore has long been the lifeblood of the Arres and Bossòst regions. At the beginning of the last century, the Victòria mine alone produced around 80 tonnes of raw ore per day, thanks to the work of a hundred miners. Reopened to the public in 2004, this mining operation has now been transformed into a museum where one can contemplate the machine room, the scales or the workers' house and discover the different methods of exploiting the ore. A fine tribute to the hard work that made the region proud.
The Val d'Aran was the first mountain destination to receive the Biosphere Responsible Tourism label in January 2014 and has long promoted tourism that respects the natural species that inhabit the area. The Hidden Nature programme offers a number of activities and nature outings, organised between mid-June and the end of September. With this programme, you can be sure to make wonderful discoveries with full respect for the local fauna and flora.
Hiking in such a magnificent setting as the Val d'Aran is a reward in itself, but adding a touch of mystery and adrenaline by following in the footsteps of local legends and traditions is a definite bonus! The curse of Maladeta, the legend of the Rock of the 9 holes, the mystery surrounding the giant Mandronius, and the shocking story of the lovers of Bausen: the most famous "on dit" of the region will accompany you at every step.
A recreational spa with sulphurous water that emerges at more than 30°, the Baronía thermal baths are ideal for people suffering from rheumatism, arthritis, blood circulation problems, skin disorders and respiratory problems. With an indoor and outdoor pool, spas, foot reflexology course, Finnish sauna, cold water immersion bath and many other facilities, they have been designed for your relaxation and well-being.
The Blanhibar chairlift in the Beret area is also open in the summer, allowing you to climb to 2,200 metres to enjoy the view, of course, but also to have a drink or to embark on a hiking or mountain biking trip. It is the ideal starting point for all your activities at altitude.
If for you apres-ski means cocktails, champagne or a pint of beer, then you're ready to move to the next level! Once you've taken off your skis at the bottom of the Baqueira Beret slopes, head to Vielha for a pintxo-pote evening, which is a tapas-drinks formula but with a more sophisticated Basque twist. This Tuesday ritual makes the taste buds of all well-informed holidaymakers salivate.
Every summer in August, the Val d'Aran hosts the Romanic Musicau festival. The free evening concerts are held in the Romanesque churches of Sant Blai de Les, Santa Maria d'Arties, Saint Felix de Vilac and Era Purificacion de Maria de Bossòst. The 24th edition of this festival will be held in the summer of 2023 and is sure to offer a programme worthy of the previous editions.
The streets in the centre of Vielha are full of good addresses and small independent shops for a shopping spree. You will find everything from handicrafts and gastronomic products to sports and mountain clothing in the shops along the avenues of Pas d'Arró and Castiero. A shopping trip that can be rounded off in the best possible way with a little gourmet stop to enjoy some tapas with local wine.
