Val d’Aran Full-Day Guided Group Heliskiing

it was a great experience. I have done heliskiing several times and I enjoyed it. However, some of the rides, especially the first ones, were in my opinion a little bit too short and could have easily been extended since it was enough snow. But all in all, it was great, and great service, guides and very professional.

5-day ski touring program in the Pyrenees

Excellent experience! Martin is a real expert guide and he managed to adapt the program even when the snow conditions were poor so that we still got to do everything we wanted. Very honest, reliable, and friendly guide. He's very education focussed so we came away from the holiday with a lot of new skills as well. Outstanding trip.

Aiguestortes and San Mauricio National Park 4-day ski tour

This was a great 4-day hut-to-hut ski experience in the Pyrenees. The national park of Aiguestortes is beautiful and we had a lot of snow. Martin is a professional and social guide. He makes sure that the trip takes place from a pleasant and secure way. Due to the weather conditions we couldn't do the climb to the Montardo and to the Ratera, but Martin organized some alternatives to enjoy the 4 days. We were an international group and could communicate with Martin in English.

Thermal ski touring in Val d’Aran, Pyrenees

The helicopter was a surprise and it was awesome, it was a great first time experience in the backcountry. Our guide, Roger, was really helpful and patient with us and we found really good snow.  The hiking up was especially tiring when it was really hot but the skiing was epic.

Thermal ski touring in Val d’Aran, Pyrenees

Roger, our guide, really made the trip memorable for us. He had a challenge every day to plan the route according to the snow conditions, temperatures (it was quite warm), the skills and endurance of our kids and keeping it fun for all of us. It really showed that he put thought into planning each day and wanted to find the best route for us to enjoy the backcountry and get some good skiing!  He knows the area so well and every day he planned was awesome. The helicopter trip. It was planned by Roger and something we never would have thought of doing for our children's first backcountry experience but it was absolutely the best. "Double thumbs up" according to Willy, our son. The location that Roger picked out for the skiing and the hotel, Bahns de Tredos, was perfect for being in the backcountry all day and then returning to the hotel for a delicious late lunch, thermal hot tub soak and then a gourmet dinner all in a hut/backcountry setting.  We felt very spoiled!

What’s the weather like?

During the winter, the mountains of Spain are cold and mostly dry. Average daily temperatures hover around freezing and dip slightly below freezing at higher altitudes. Snow does not come frequently but sticks when it falls. The north of the country is wetter and receives more snow than the rest

How to get there:

This largely depends on where you are heading. Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (MAD) and Barcelona–El Prat Josep Tarradellas Airport (BCN) are the two main airports in Spain. From any of these, you will find connecting flights to more minor airports, as well as transportation by bus, train or rental car to your final destination

The fourth largest country in Europe is also home to some of its most incredible mountain scenery. Sprawling over 505,990 square kilometers (195,360 square miles), Spain is home to some of the best splitboarding in Europe. Among the top spots are the Pyrenees Mountains. Running along the northern border with France, many of the country’s tallest mountains are found in the range. Heading to Val d’Aran and Carros de Foc are two of the most popular spots. The former boasts more than 150 kilometers (90 miles) of trails, leading down steep mountain slopes and into forested valleys. The latter sits within the stunning Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park and boasts even more incredible splitboarding terrain. Farther west, Picos de Europa National Park, in the Cantabrian Mout nains, is a great place to head out splitboarding as well. Enjoy stunning views over the wilderness of the Basque Country before skinning up rugged ridge lines and plunging down into steep powder bowls
