Last updated on

Baqueira Beret is not only the largest ski resort in Spain, it is also one of the most glamorous ski resorts in the entire Pyrenees. The well-known winter sports resort is located in Val d’Aran, the Catalan province of Lleida. It is located on the western side of the mountains, which guarantees snow for most of the ski season. Baqueira Beret has everything a winter sports fan wants, no less than 150 kilometers of slopes are available. Paradizo has been renting out luxury rentals in Baqueira Beret for many years, so we thought to give you some insights and present one of our luxury chalets to give you some inspiration for your next ski holiday.




Whether beginners, families with children or professionals, Baqueira Beret is an excellent ski resort for all levels of difficulty. 34 lifts take guests upstairs from the beginning of the season in November and until the end of April. The ski area is also known for its scenic beauty and the wide range of après ski offerings. Not for nothing is the Spanish royal family one of the regular visitors of Baqueira Beret.





Baqueira offers a special highlight for daring downhill skiers: skiers or snowboarders have the option of heli-skiing here. A snowpark is located near the Blanhiblar chairlift in Beret. Besides of amazing conditions for ski and snowboard lovers there are many things to do in Baqueira Beret. Leisurely, but no less sporty, it goes on the trails for cross-country skiers. These are a total of seven kilometers perfectly groomed trails in beautiful winter landscape available. Further highlights of the winter sports area are the popular snowshoe tours as well as the dogsledding tours and a ride in the snow mobile.





Après-ski activities

Of course, the large winter sports area also offers a variety of après-ski opportunities. There are more than 15 restaurants and ski huts, (tapas) bars and clubs. One of the most popular après-ski bars is the Orri Moet Luxury Winter Lounge, popular both for lunch or just a glass of champagne from lunchtime onwards. As well as the Cap del Port restaurant or the the Refugi San Miguel. Most tourists go in the town centers of Baqueira and Arties in the evening, Vielha attracting the locals and a younger age group. But there’s a good range of bars in all of the villages, none of them starting to get busy until after midnight.
