Val d’Aran has features which are quite different from the other Catalan valleys, since it is on the Atlantic side of the mountains. The Baqueira-Beret resort attracts lovers of winter sports.
Val d’Aran, in the Central Pyrenees, provides visitors with all the entertainment of nature, art and sport.
The high mountain landscape combines quite different natural environments and is the ideal setting for a range of mountain activities: hiking, climbing, cycling, archery... Nevertheless, skiing is king owing to the presence of Baqueira-Beret resort, which has the necessary infrastructure for everyone to enjoy the sport.
After a day of adventure, the best way to relax is to take a stroll in the valley, where you will find Romanesque churches in incomparable natural settings, and then restore your strength by sampling the olla aranesa, the typical local stew.
As it is so close, you can also visit Aigüestortes National Park and Sant Maurici lake.
