Travel Guide

Baqueira

Baqueira, deeply rooted location for livestock and forestry, today is one of the driving forces of the Aran Valley, offering sports and tourism in a wintry setting.

Baqueira is a Catalan village in the Pyrenees with a singular nature resulting from its location between Spain and France and with the local language and customs of the Val d’Aran. Enjoy holidays in Baqueira and engage in one of winter’s top sports, skiing, as the Baqueira Beret resort is only a short distance away.

The Baqueira Beret resort is the biggest in Spain and probably one of the most famous of all. It’s the leisure spot of choice for not only families, couples and groups looking to ski, but also for the royalty. It offers over 7 square miles of skiable area, with 96 miles of slopes, 7 itineraries and 7 cross-country skiing circuits. What’s more, from there you can contemplate various peaks over 9,800 feet high, such as Maladeta and Aneto. The area can only be accessed by road, although you can start out from Lleida or Barcelona, which are some three and four hours away, respectively.

The range of activities available is rather extensive. Find a cheap holiday in Baqueira and have a ball as you travel in a horse-drawn sleigh or dog sled or go on a day trip to the Montgarri Sanctuary. Furthermore, in recent years the capacity of the area has been extended with an underground car park, offering direct access to the cable car and the Val de Ruda shopping centre. If you prefer other activities, Baqueira is also the perfect place for enjoying nature and art. Find a package holiday in Baqueira and discover Lombard and late Romanesque art, explore the Val d’Àrreu and surroundings, such as Gerber Lake, or stop by the region’s capital, Vielha.

Given its geography, public transport is limited to by bus, but it is easy getting around and seeing the Aran Valley. What’s more, the temperatures are perfect for beating the cold with a warm dish of the excellent olla aranesa (Aranese stew). Don’t miss the fantastic holiday deals to Baqueira and discover a top winter destination, both for those who love sports and nature.
