  • Estany Long de Liat, Vall d'Aran

Can you picture yourself enjoying the sunshine on the shores of the Mediterranean on a peaceful winter's day and skiing at an altitude of more than 2,000 metres the next? These are both possible in Barcelona. The Catalan Pyrenees are a true mountain paradise for trekkers and climbers and a short distance away from Barcelona. You can get there by car in just two hours as well as by train or helicopter.

The Catalan Pyrenees offer a whole host of activities for all seasons which everyone can enjoy. The incomparable natural setting – including a national park and five natural parks – offers a wide range of cultural attractions too: beautiful Romanesque architecture that has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status, spas, traditional gastronomy reinterpreted by young chefs...

Excellent transport links from Barcelona mean you can visit the Catalan Pyrenees on a day trip or take a short break and stay at cosy hotels or rural B&Bs.
