Pyrenees family holiday, Spain
Description of Pyrenees family holiday, Spain
Set in the foothills of the Pyrenees, the Spanish mountain town of Sort (Catalan for ‘luck’) is the perfect base to explore the beautiful backdrop of forest trails, leafy gorges and white water rivers – it’s family fun guaranteed.
This week-long family holiday offers plenty of time to explore the local alpine scenery in nearby Aigues Tortes National Park, where you can try abseiling in the ravines, mountain biking or hiking. The Noguera River, which runs through Sort, is one of Europe’s best rivers to try whitewater rafting. It’s safe enough for total beginners and high water levels mean thrilling rollercoaster rides and washing machine rapids are waiting all year round. You can also try your hand at canyoning, an exhilarated mix of climbing, caves and natural water slides along Estaron Canyon, or take a relaxing horse riding trek through the woodlands.
You’ll be staying in the comfort of a locally-owned spa hotel, complete with swimming pool and gardens, leaving plenty of opportunities to unwind and relax after an adventurous day out with the kids. You’ll have some free days when you can choose to try additional activities, or spend some time exploring the medieval streets of Sort. An attractive old town with castle ruins, Sort has plenty of little bars and restaurants where you can taste some of the delicious Catalan cuisine – don’t miss out on the local sausage specialities and cheeses. At the end of your holiday, you’ll have a little time for city sightseeing in Barcelona, before your flight home.
