Travel just a short distance from the town and you will get a magical view: the bell towers of the two churches stand out above the trees, which paint the canvas an intense green in spring and summer, display an explosion of color in autumn and accompany the smoke from the chimneys and the sparkling snow in winter. The lovely town center of Artíes is as worthy of a visit as its views from a distance. It has all the charm of a mountain village: houses with sloped roofs and cobbled side streets that lead to bars and restaurants with a lively atmosphere.
The Arán Valley is one of the first Catalan locations to receive the Sports Tourism Destination seal. In addition to snow sports, you won't want to miss the hiking trails that invite you to discover woods, streams, alpine flowers such as orchids and the large-flowered butterwort (as beautiful as they are difficult to find), and lovely waterfalls with a deep, relaxing sound. In addition to hiking, other options include driving routes, mountain biking and a wide variety of active tourism activities, including horseback riding routes, climbing, rafting, riverboarding, rapids and pitch & putt.
The landscape features woods, snowy peaks in winter and fresh green in summer, offering one-of-a-kind experiences and making it easy to achieve a sense of wellbeing. There are many reasons to come, and even more to return.
* A complimentary bus service to the ski slopes will be provided December 22–January 5 (inclusive). Space is limited. Please ask in reception for schedule information.
