If you’re looking for the ideal mountain resorts for families, these are must-visits: Espot, Port Ainé, Vallter 2000, La Molina, Vall de Núria, Boí-Taüll and Masella. And that’s not just an opinion or a claim they all make;  rather it’s a fact as they are certified as family-friendly facilities by the Catalan Tourist Board. To earn this certification they need to meet a number of requirements such as having marked slopes with slow-speed zones for children, a children’s club and a ski school. Here are some of the very best activities you can do there.


La Molina: Explora the snowy summits on a segway


La Molina makes it easy for kids to share your love of snow. At the ski school, they can enjoy two spaces designed exclusively for them to get familiar with the snow. Children aged 4 and above can try out the Snow Park. It has a conveyor belt on foot of the Long Slope and private lessons are held there. The Children’s Park is the second space for children, for those aged 6 months and above. It is supervised by resort staff and features a play area, cots and deckchairs.

La Molina has two tubbing tracks in the El Bosquet family area. In the first track visitors go down a slide, and in the Coll de Pal track visitors slide directly on the snow.

Looking for an activity to delight the whole family? Check out our segway trips. A guide will accompany you and take you along various mountain paths so you can enjoy the Pyrenean landscapes with this innovative means of transport. Another unmissable activity is the “Alerta Allau” Escape Snow. This is an escape room in the snow where you will put yourself in the shoes of a rescuer during an avalanche alert and make difficult decisions. Will you succeed?

And let’s not forget: as a family tourism resort, La Molina has installed baby changing facilities across the resort.
