The Val d’Aran is home to an ancient culture, but above all it features pure air and mountain landscapes. To see it in all its splendour, we will take a walk to Montgarri. This picturesque Pyrenean village, inhabited until the1970s, lies at the headwaters of the Noguera Pallaresa river and is now an idyllic and relatively isolated location. The trail runs through a beautiful high-mountain landscape, featuring forests of black pine and fir trees. In the winter months, it is a popular spot for snow shoeing and dog sledding. At the Montgarri shelter we will enjoy one of the area’s famous recipes olla aranesa. In the afternoon, we will return to Vielha, the capital of Val d’Aran, where we can purchase some traditional sausages and relax with a well-deserved hot tub session in the hotel spa.
