Performing physical activity in winter will help you stay fit and increase your health and personal well-being. In addition, according to experts, this type of sports increases calorie burning by up to 30%. If you add to all this the level of satisfaction that comes from being in contact with nature and enjoying a unique and unrepeatable landscape, you cannot stop coming to the Catalan Pyrenees. Stay in Sort, from where you will access them quickly and easily.
There are many snow sports, to practice both individually and in groups. The most common are skiing and snowboarding.
In addition, from the Hotel Les Brases you can request information about ski passes. Fun is assured!
Currently, there are different seasons. We recommend Port Ainé for the many leisure options it offers for both adults and children. And it is that, in it you can enjoy with the little ones on the slopes of the Parc lúdic riding a sled or trying the adrenaline of tubbing.
Also from this here you can practice skiing or snowboarding along 30km of slopes and 800 meters of unevenness.
We leave you a map of the Port Ainé station so you can get an idea!
Excursions or hiking
If you are a nature lover, you cannot miss out on the chance to tour the Aigüestortes National Park and the Sant Maurici lake or walk through the Batlliu or the Àssua Valley. At this time of year, the snowy mountains in the background and the frost on the water give a magical touch to the environment.
Delve into the historic center
You don't like sports? Nothing happens. In Sort you can also stroll quietly through its old town discovering its historical and monumental beauty, yes, visit the Church of Sant Feliu. You will discover an authentic postcard town with its little houses made of stone and shops and artisan shops. And you know that a visit to the Bruixa d'Or is mandatory! Don't miss out on the opportunity to taste the gastronomy of Pallars Sobirá. We recommend you go to the Les Brases Restaurant to try the local sausages and cheeses, and later, locate a charcuterie to take our paltruc, gosset or tupí as a souvenir. You will want to have them at home!
We also advise you to walk along the slopes of Noguera Pallaresa, which shines in all its splendor in winter. And only if you are lucky and during those days it has recently snowed will you have the pleasure of seeing the river turned into ice, and making snowmen.
Surely with these reasons you are already looking forward to visiting this incredible town! Vindre a Sort is all a Sort!
