Activities in the snow

If you love the snow and high-mountain landscapes in winter but skiing's not your thing, don't worry. You can go on showshoe trails or dog sledding. And if you're an adrenaline junkie, you can take a ride on a snowmobile or snow Segway. You can even go scuba diving under the ice. Enjoy the snow-white landscape of the Pyrenees just two hours away from Barcelona.

  • Snowshoes trails

    It's time to put on your snowshoes and wrap up warm to enjoy this snow-white paradise. The ski resorts have areas off-piste and, in the middle of winter, you can go showshoeing in mountainous areas along trails that pass between shelters high up in the mountains.

    Hot-air ballooning

    The landscape is transformed in a surprising way from the air. A hot-air balloon is the best way to see it although you'll have to get up early because the winds are more stable at these times. There are several balloon bases in the Catalan Pyrenees which offer rides for first-time flyers or longer trips. When you're back on the ground a breakfast of hearty mountain fare awaits you with a glass of cava.
