Pyrenees are a great winter destination. We can enjoy its magnificent mountains, where we find a wide range of ski stations with a large number of ski slopes. In fact, this is probably the best place for skiing in the whole Peninsula.
But winter is not the only time we can enjoy the wonders of Pyrenees. Summer is also a great period to drive to these landscapes surrounded by mountains, trees, lakes and nature and scape from the crowded city.
So, if you like shopping in Barcelona or visiting museums, but you feel you need more active distractions, get a train or bus ticket and live an adventure day in Pyrenees.
Hiking in Pyrenees
Are you a nature lover? If you are one of those persons who prefer a hiking journey through mountains and forests rather than crowded cities or non-sportive activities, this is your place to be!
In Pyrenees there are so many routes and paths we can walk and enjoy. So, don not hesitate to take a bus from your chic bohemian apartment in Barcelona and visit this unique natural area.
Either if you are travelling with your family or with your friends, rafting is an exceptional and enjoyable outdoor activity.
We find several companies that offer rafting services near the rivers of Pyrenees. This way, we will use an inflatable raft to navigate rivers with different degrees of rough water. Dealing with risk and the need for teamwork is a great part of the experience.
Rafting on certain sections of rivers is considered an extreme sport and can be a dangerous activity. But we don’t have to worry about that, because Pyrenees’ sections are not extreme or difficult. In fact, those areas are thoroughly selected to suit the skills and conditions of people who practice rafting for first time.
Do you like adventurous activities and adrenaline? Have you an enviable aim? Prove it going to a paintball experience.
This is a perfect activity when you are travelling with friends. Paintball is a competitive team shooting sport in which players eliminate opponents from play by hitting them with spherical capsules filled with colourful dye gelatin that break upon impact. Paintballs are usually shot using a low-energy air weapon.
We warn that it is a little harmful when you get shot, but it is an amazing experience that provides tons of laughs and fun.
An adventure in family
In case you find paintball and rafting too risky, you can also live an adventure day in Pyrenees with multi-adventure experiences.
With those packs, you can prove your abilities and balance in footbridges, zip lines or rappelling. These activities are completely safe, and they have a minimum risk.
This way, multi-adventure experiences are a perfect option when travelling to Pyrenees with your family. They are safe and amusing activities that children enjoy a lot.
