The Mountains Beyond Barcelona: Exploring Lleida Province

List View
Map View
Head to the mountains just a few hours outside Barcelona for fun in the sun or the snow. Come winter there's snowshoeing or downhill and cross-country skiing. In the summer months you can hike and climb in the mountains, or kayak and raft in the white waters of this area's streams and rivers. Year-round take the time to explore picturesque villages like Gerri de la Sal and Sont with their medieval churches and bridges. Afterwards feast on traditional local fare and rest up in cozy rural hotels.
