Description of Catalan Pyrenees family activity holiday

This Catalan Pyrenees family activity holiday is a week of summer outdoor adventures, based in the mountain town of Sort, which is adventure central really. Far from the peak season crowds of the Catalonian coast, Sort is a well kept secret in the Pallars Sobira region, famous for its traditional July fiesta which is a huge hit with families visiting during this time.

Being a mountain location, this family activity holiday and small group tour allows you to choose from a variety of exciting adventures, including hiking in the national park, white water rafting or kayaking, canyoning, mountain biking and horse trekking. The price of your holiday will depend on the number of activities you choose during your week here. The national park in question is Aigüestortes and Lake Sant Maurici National Park, a mountainous landscape of lakes, fast flowing rivers, waterfalls and canyons.

The accommodation on this trip is an aparthotel with a mix of room sizes, so do chat with us about your family’s needs and budget. It is located on the Noguera Pallaresa River and is close to the town’s restaurants and cafes. We do include all breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners in the price of the holiday. The price of this holiday also includes return flights from London to Barcelona but please do chat with us about regional options too. Many of our guests choose to have some time in Barcelona at the beginning and end of the trip.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Catalan Pyrenees family activity holiday

The Pallars Sobera Region is the base for this exciting family activity holiday in the Catalan Pyrenees. Specifically we are based in the small town of Sort on the banks of the Noguera Pallaresa river, where all the water based activities take place. The Hotel Pey is run by the Salvans Family, one of the most important families in the region with a fierce commitment to the protection of the Catalan culture, environment and language, whilst pioneering the development of the local economy through tourism and by only working with companies who share this philosophy.

Accommodation is strictly limited in the area which allows careful management of tourism in terms of numbers. The hotel promotes the responsible use of natural resources and encourages guests to re-use towels rather than submit them for daily cleaning.

Our activity partners, Carlos and Lluis Rabeneda, are equally committed to the promotion and protection of the local Catalan culture and this infuses every aspect of their business. Guides and Instructors must not only demonstrate their professionalism and ability, but also have to be seen to endorse and practice the company’s policy.

They believe wholeheartedly in impressing upon visitors that it is possible to enjoy a wonderful holiday but still be responsible to the environment. This is particularly highlighted during the Trek in the Aigues Tortes National Park on the first activity day. At the entrance to the National Park clients are shown a collage made up of some 10,000 cigarette ends which were collected in one day of environmental clean up in the National Park.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


White water rafting all together. This narrowly beat canyoning including a 20 metre abseil.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


This was a brilliant holiday for us and our three daughters aged 13, 10 and 10. The level of challenge and adventure was just right for us. (We are all fit and
healthy but not massively sporty. ) Check that your week does not coincide with the local fiesta which is very loud.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Other than the fiesta we cannot fault it. The activities were varied and exciting, the guide was expert, entertaining and extremely reassuring, there were lots of good places to eat near the hotel.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Every activity was at least as good as expected if not better. Great group of people, fantastic fun all brilliantly orchestrated by our devoted, excellent guide, Dejan.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Don't have high expectations of the hotel location! We had a wonderful holiday but were initially disappointed by the very central location of the hotel within the resort of Sort, since we imagined a rural, romantic place. Silly fools we are! The pool however is wonderful, clean and a great size and so was the lawn around it. Very welcome to relax in and around after a busy day and a meeting place for all the teenagers. Nice little shops and eating places within walking distance and not many foreign speaking tourists! Add some time to see some more of the Pyrenees or have a few days sightseeing in Barcelona.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


As far as we could see, very clearly yes to all the above.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Had a fantastic, very memorable time and are left with plenty of bruises to prove that we had a full-on activity holiday!!!! Staff at the tour operator were very friendly and helpful in ever aspect. Thank you very much.
