The Catalan Pyrenees is a unique natural place that gives us the possibility of putting into practice various activities and mountain sports that, because of their orography, can not be done in most Spanish territories.

Both in winter and summer, it is possible to enjoy the most with family, friends or as a couple of these idyllic landscapes offered by the Pyrenees. Today, we will show 4 of the most successful summer activities that take place in the natural areas near Sort, where the Hotel Les Brases is located.

Outdoor activities to enjoy in Sort


In the region of Pallars Sobirá, where we are, we can raise the adrenaline making canyoning in the “Barranc de Sant Pere”, a steep and wild place where we can leave stress aside and fill us with energy swimming in the crystalline waters of its different pools along the route and performing vertigo jumps (always under the supervision and advice of the monitor, of course).

Horse riding

If you are a great lover of animals, this is your activity. Visit the beautiful green areas of the Pyrenees on horseback  it is one of those experiences that you never forget. It is an especially attractive activity for children and young people who generally have a great connection with these noble animals with whom we will walk along some of the most beautiful routes in the region.


Rafting has become in recent years the favorite activity of many visitors who come to Sort to enjoy their vacations. Why? Because precisely the river Noguera Pallaresa that runs through the region and its tributary Segre River are especially suitable for this hilarious activity. It is not surprising that families as a whole and also many groups of friends go on an adventure and try to do rafting, but also hydrospeed and canoeing, other activities also booming in this area. It is not necessary to have previous experience, but it is necessary that we take the instructions of the monitor very seriously so that the activity is perfect.


When we talk about outdoor activities to enjoy the Catalan Pyrenees in summer we can not forget a star activity: Hiking. From the Hotel Les Brases we invite you to make hiking trails to take you to see the beautiful Aigüestortes National Park and the Lake of San Mauricio. They are protected natural gems that never leave anyone indifferent because of the richness of their resources and the harmony that they distill. Big trees, infinite meadows, animals in freedom and an immense lake that will leave you speechless … all this and much more you will be able to enjoy if you come to Sort in vacations. Do not worry if you are not in good shape, since there are many hiking routes that adapt to all types of levels, so it is also a highly recommended activity for children.
