In each and every one of our programs we try to offer you the best of each speciality. The aims our team and partners set will mean that you enjoy yourself, experience new sensations, set yourself new challenges in the mountains, discover and reach new limits… In short, for you to have new experiences in the Val d’Aran and its surroundings.
From among the valley’s hotels, we have chosen two. Although they are quite different, we love them for their high quality and great comfort.
Casa Irene in Arties, a family-run hotel where you’ll breathe in peace on just going through the door, offers a very cosy atmosphere. It’s a traditional hotel, made largely of stone and wood, with spacious bedrooms and a spa. And it’s there, in the spa, where we’ll relax and recover at the end of a great day’s skiing. In addition, the hotel boasts one of the valley’s best restaurants, with the owner in charge of the kitchen.
Then there’s the 4* Hotel Tryp Vielha, right in the town centre, it’s a modern hotel with all the comforts that implies. Its location makes it perfect for shopping and having a bite to eat in any of Vielha’s many bars.
To whet your appetite, here’s a brief presentation of what we want to offer in our programs. We hope you like it and are inspired to take a look at the complete programs!
Off-piste and snow powder skiing trip, where you get to discover the wild part of these mountains that form part of the Spanish Pyrenees, and at the same time enjoy Spanish culture with its incredible gastronomy and wines.
A program designed to offer a range of experiences that combines different skiing sensations, in which we offer two days of off-piste skiing in Baqueira Beret (one of the best ski resorts in the Pyrenees and Spain), plus 1 day of ski touring, 1 day of Helirando in which we use the helicopter for the first ascent, and finally 1 day of Heliskiing with 5 drops.
We will organize it around the weather to ensure the best conditions for each activity, thus offering the highest quality.
In addition, as in our Powder & Tapas program, we want to help you discover this valley’s unique cuisine. So the program includes two nights tapa and wine tasting with a local guide, as well as 5 nights in a 4* hotel in the valley.
POWDER & TAPAS
A real off-piste ski program that’s also a gourmet program for lovers of good food. Does that sound like your thing?
Since many of your descents will end up outside the area of Baqueira Beret resort, we will use snowmobiles to get back. Excitement guaranteed!
As well as this, and as you surely know, we Spanish love eating well, and this is even truer in the Val d’Aran. So this program has two evenings with a local guide who will accompany you to taste tapas and wines in the valley and will also explain and talk about the local gastronomy. That means that on the other nights, you’ll have real local knowledge about where to have dinner.
This program offers 5 days of off-piste skiing in the Baqueira Beret resort area, 2 wine and tapas tasting dinners with a local guide, and 5 nights at the 4* Hotel Casa Irene, in Arties. We can adapt the length of the program so it matches your availability, just let us know.
We organize this program through our colleagues of Guide Valdaran, who will always take you to the best snow.
CIRCULAR SKI TOURING HIGH ROUTE IN P.N. AIGUESTORTES
This program takes place in the Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, or, as some people know it, the crossing of the Encantats, or Carros de Foc.
Discover the essence of one of the largest national parks in the Spanish Pyrenees. With over 400 lakes, the park offers peace and wild landscapes at one and the same time: a completely unspoiled land of more than 140 km2 just waiting to be discovered. Its guarded mountain refuges offer very good facilities, as well as the local cuisine that is so appreciated after a long day of mountain skiing.
The programs are of 3 or 5 days, but the route can be changed according to snow conditions and number of participants.
But we want to offer more and that’s why there are also our classic and private Heliski and Helirando programs.
Don’t forget to take a look at the programs we have in the Pyrenees!
