Spain is the world’s third most popular destination, characterized by a great variety of places to visit, amazing food and the welcoming character of its inhabitants.
This doesn’t change during Winter. Spain has a lot to offer despite the cold weather and you will still find people enjoying an olive snack at the bar terrace. Neither cold weather or snow stops the hectic pace of this beautiful country.
From skiing in the Pyrenees to relaxing in the steam bath. The best winter escapades in Spain!
Baqueira Beret, located in Vall d’Aran, is a destination where visitors can do diverse ski activities. However, although this famous ski station has 2,166 hectares and ski lifts with a transport capacity of 60,683 people per hour, there is much more to explore in the area.
We recommend, especially after a day of skiing, to immerse yourself in sulphurous waters in some of the facilities that are close to the springs. An excellent option is the highest SPA in Europe, called “Termas de la Baronia”. However, almost every high- end hotel includes a SPA as part of its amenities.
You can’t either miss a “Ruta de Pinchos”, a route in which the visitor can enjoy small portions of the most exquisite food in the area. The perfect opportunity to enjoy some authentic Olives from Spain!
When the first snows arrive, this area becomes a paradise for Nordic skiing lovers. This Nordic ski centre located in the border with France possesses several circuits marked for both the ride and the training.
The freedom and the high chance of observing wild fauna are the main attractions of the station.
The perfect spot, not just for skiing, but also for trekking and enjoying the best traditional Spanish food. The ski resort of “Puerto de Navacerrada” is the closest one to the capital and has become an essential place for winter sports’ lovers.
Moreover, the town of Navacerrada, in the National Park of the Sierra de Guadarrama at 1,200 meters of altitude, offers a great variety of activities for those who enjoy spending time in nature. You can take a walk along the reservoir while enjoying the water and its views, a suitable option if you travel with children.
The ski resort of Sierra Nevada is one of the biggest attractions in Granada and of course, a great destination if you decide to visit Spain during winter. Those who enjoy ski will love it because here is where the highest peak of the Iberian Peninsula, “Pico Mulhacen” is situated, at 3,480 meters of altitude!
An escapade to Granada city is a great idea during winter to avoid the overcrowding of summer and the high prices. Everyone knows that visiting “la Alhambra” is a must regardless of the season.
Moreover, the 2nd of January this beautiful city commemorates the entrance of the Catholic Monarchs in Granada, the delivery of the city and the beginning of a new era in the History of Spain. You will be able to enjoy a typical winter dish known as “the pot of San Antón”. But Olives will also be all around!
Don’t miss the opportunity to see a more unknown part of Spain, a different experience from the typical beach and pool vacation!
