Description

I invite you to join me on this easy to handle and enjoyable 2-hour snowshoe walk around the Vallter 2000 ski resort, in the world-famous landscapes of Catalonia.

Nestled in the Vallter valley, just 100km from the city of Girona and 150km from the bustling metropolis of Barcelona, Vallter 2000 lies on the tranquil Ter river and is encompassed by the impressive peaks of Bastiments, Gra de Fajol and Pic de la Dona.

Assembling at our meeting point at 9:30am in the town of Camprodon, it is then approximately a 30 minute drive to the starting point of the activity. Once there, I will provide the snowshoes themselves and dispense any relevant safety equipment and information.

We then head off on our walk around the stunning hills and peaks of the ski resort, with some truly breathtaking views and scenery abound.

At just 4km long and with a relatively gentle positive slope of 250m, there is ample time to get your camera out and create some fantastic memories which you are sure to look back on fondly.

The highlight of the trip is our visit to the black pine forests of the resort, an awe-inspiring experience which will stay with you for a lifetime.

After 2 gratifying hours, we head back to the start point and then drive back to the meeting point in Camprodon, hopefully happy and content!

The sights and sounds of this activity provide fun and entertainment for the whole family – book now so you don’t miss out!

I provide even more family-friendly fun with a snowshoeing and igloo building trip – book here!

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a certified Mid-Mountain and Canyoning guide and a certified UIMLA Leader. I'm also a member of the High Mountain Catalan School (ECAM).

I have been working as a Mid-Mountain and Canyoning guide since 2008. My love for the mountains began at a very young age, as I grew up in the Pyrenees.

This passion eventually took me all around the world, including the Himalayas, the Andes, the Alps and Morocco where I travelled to practice mountaineering, rock climbing, canyoning, ski mountaineering, ice climbing, and mountain biking.

As a guide, my aim is to instill my passion for the mountains in you and that you experience it in the same way that I do: intensely and with minimal risk. Mountains are more than a job or an entertainment; they are a philosophy and a way of learning about life.
