Description

Welcome to the Spanish Pyrenees and specifically to the area around Vallter 2000 ski resort. If you and the family are looking for some fun, then how about snowshoeing through the forests and learning how to build an Igloo!

About 2 hours from Girona and 2.5 from Barcelona, this area surrounding Vallter ski resort is an alpine paradise.

Forests, glaciers, mountains, waterfalls and the list goes on and on. You won’t be short of beauty in this picturesque region!

Snowshoeing is a truly delightful way to explore the snowy terrain. Allowing you to travel at your own pace and really take in the wilderness around you.

We will begin our walk at the ski resort and head straight out towards Ull de Ter shelter. On this one hour route we will travel next to a pretty stream until we reach the perfect spot for igloo building.

In constructing the igloo we will use compact snow and create a structure that, if we ever need to spend the night in the mountains, will keep us pretected from the elements!

This is an activity that’s fun for all the family, kids love creating and climbing inside the igloos. Children from as young as 7 are welcome when accompanied with adults.

We will cover about 4km over roughly 3 hours on this trip and traverse a height differential of about 200m.

If you want to explore the spectacular Spanish Pyrenees by snowshoe and learn how to build an amazing igloo then sign up now! You and the family will have a blast on this magical adventure into the wild!

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.
