What to see in Baqueira

Our station and much more

Ski resort of Baqueira Beret

It is one of the most important ski resorts in Spain.

Located in the Catalan Pyrenees, in the Vall d'Arán. The ski resort is divided into three interconnected areas: Baqueira (for the most experienced skiers), Beret (for beginners) and Bonaigua (plenty of out of ski slopes). The three areas summit 108 km of marked tracks. It has 71 slopes (5 green, 34 blue, 26 red and 6 black), 32 lifts and a circuit of 7 km cross-country skiing.

Sanctuary of Montgarri

In the northeastern limit of the Vall d'Aranis located the Sanctuary-Refuge of Montgarri.

To access to the sanctuary there is a hiking route, a fairly comfortable forest trail (about 12 km round trip). It leaves from the Plan de Beret, from one end of the car parks, and it is a very pleasant tour. In a natural environment of great beauty, the itinerary runs very close to the river Noguera Pallaresa, between forests of black pine and grass areas.

The Sanctuary is a building built in 1117, although what today is visited is completely renovated. The whole environment, crossed by the same Noguera Pallaresa, invites to rest and contemplation.

Valley of Arreu

The Arreu Valley is located in the Pallars Sobirá region, in the middle of the Pyrenees of Lleida. It is one of the last virgin valleys of the Pyrenees where human intervention is almost nil. It forms part of the natural space Alt Aneu, included in the Plan of Spaces of Natural Interest of Catalonia. A semi-vine valley leads to the Pla de Beret, covered with snow in the winter, from here you can reach Port de Salau, Bonabé Forest, Cireres ...

From Arreu a path takes us to the Vall del Rosari with lakes of glacial origin and Muntanyo d'Arreu at whose feet are the plains of Rialba.

Arties

Arties is the most important town of Naut Arán, except Salardú. Located at 1143 meters high, between the rivers Valarties and Garonne, Arties is an ideal place to get lost in the typical streets.

It is a very charming and chic village where the typical houses of wood, stone and slate are mixed with colorful houses in French style. It is surprising the great number of restaurants and shops, all of them of high standing.

You have to visit the historical city center with the church of Santa Maria, with Romanesque and Gothic styles, the palace house of Portolá and its tower of the XVI century and the house Paulet, of the XVI century. In the restaurants you can taste traditional dishes such as truhada, patarnes, Bagergue cheeses and the famous Aranese pot, which you can also taste at the hotel.

Vielha

Vielha is a small town of 4000 inhabitants located to 974 meters height that is the capital of the Valley of Arán.

It is a modern city in which you will find any service you need. The city has an interesting cultural offer with visits such as San Miguel church, in the center of the village (with the medieval Christ of Mijaran), the Aranese Ethnological museum, the Porticado city hall, the palace of Co Rhodes, the Wool museum and the tower of the General Martinón of the XVII century.

Routes in Baqueira Beret

Ideal places to go with family

Artiga de Lin

It is a natural place of great beauty, one of the most beautiful in the Aran Valley. It is an accessible route that does not require much effort, suitable for the whole family. It can be accessed by car to the parking of the Uelhs deth Joeu, starting point of the route.

ITINERARY

We will leave from the parking lot by the main track until arriving at the waterfall. By a metallic bridge that crosses the Arriu Joeu you accede to the path that ascends parallel to the waterfall which appears and disappears under our feet.

This trail crosses a forest of spruce and beech and leads to the spectacular meadow of the Artiga de Lin, at the foot of Malh dera Artiga. Here the road again becomes a forest trail that leads back to the refuge, which returns us to the starting point.

"It is an ideal route for walking in family and with small children"

Bausen and the beeches forest of Carlac

The beeches of Carlac look like figures drawn from a story, they are centuries-old trees that leave our mouths open. Be sure to visit the cemetery of Teresa, a civil cemetery in which rests who refused to do so in the holy field of the parish of Bausén.

ITINERARY

We leave Bausén along the road that surrounds the upper part of the Church towards the hermitage of Sant Roc to Taishoères. Here we can turn aside to visit the civil cemetery. On the way up the mountainside we arrive at the wonderful beech and fern forest.

We continue parallel to the Arriu or Carlac river, which we will cross a log bridge and gradually, upwards, we will approach Coret or Collado de Pan (1,175 meters), the highest point of the route. From here we  head down to Bòrdes de Sacrotz and Cap des Camps as the road becomes a forest trail, until we reach Bausen again.

The 7 lakes of Colomèrs

The withdrawal of the old glacier under the Colomèrs circus left a set of lakes that form a spectacular landscape.

ITINERARY

From the taxi stand of  Montanheta we take the road that ascends to the first of the lakes: Estanh dera Lòssa. From here and following the course of the river without crossing it, we take the path on the right to the refuge of Colomèrs. We  leave on the left the dam and Estanh Major de Colomèrs until the refuge. Leaving the shelter we go up a narrow stretch to the Estanh Mòrt and border it on the left. After climbing a small canal, (following the yellow marks on the way up) we arrive at Estanh des Garguilhs de Jos.

We have to climb a small pass that accesses the Estanh des Cabidornats, to which we leave to our right and we follow the yellow marks to arrive at the Estanh Long. Now we look for the marks GR (white and red) to reach the Còth or Col de Clòto, to reach Estanh Còth de Baish. From this point it descends until it forks and continues along the path to the right until you reach the river and thus, to the starting point.
