Mountain walking holidays may sound like an option that’s not for the faint hearted (or headed!), but in fact, there are many destinations to choose from that offer a fantastic experience for all abilities.
One of the strongest contenders has to be Arinsal in the Pyrenees, which offers extensive opportunities for all hikers and bikers to enjoy the magnificent mountainous surroundings.
The Pyrenees are probably one of the most famous mountain ranges in Europe, but you don’t need to have the strength and stamina for a Kilimanjaro trek in order to experience them.
The traditional village of Arinsal offers access to Andorra’s trekking paradise including gentle valleys, challenging mountains and six mountain lakes. You’ll find a wide choice of walks starting from the village, with a difficulty level to suit every intrepid explorer.
If cycling is more your thing then you’ll feel equally enamoured with Arinsal. The Vallnord Bike Park is vast and especially designed for a premium experience on cycling holidays. Whether you want to race around a BMX circuit, enjoy a gentle ride through a woodland park or head cross country (with some routes going downhill all the way) you’ll be catered for at this fantastic facility.
You can also tackle some high altitude routes, without having to force your bike up to the summit, with the help of a great lift network to get you to that higher ground (with the breathtaking views) with ease.
Arinsal village offers everything that you need to set yourself up for some fantastic cycling adventures, including bike hire, bike servicing, riding tuition and guided bike rides.
You’ll also find fantastic guided walks if you want to benefit from that additional insider knowledge that only comes with experience and a huge amount of time exploring the area in detail.
Whatever your fitness and skill level, you can enjoy the stunning natural beauty of Andorra and the Pyrenees from Arinsal. There’s nothing stopping you from booking your special adventure in the mountains for this year.
