How to enjoy a trip to Barcelona with kids


Barcelona with kids – Day 3

From the beach yesterday we went up the mountains today!

It was an incredible day we will never forget, taking a bus from Barcelona to the mountains. You don’t often connect Spain as a skiing destination but this couldn’t be any further from the truth! The skiing area of the Spanish Pyrenees are only 2 hours away from Barcelona and you don’t need any material. This day-out trip includes everything you need for a fantastic skiing day! If you arrive in Barcelona with your hand luggage and no skiing gear at all, just like we did, you can still enjoy skiing. How convenient is it?

You can find all the details here. Also you can purchase your skiing day-out trip on Visit Barcelona website during the whole skiing season.

On our 3rd day visiting we went to the skiable domain Alp 2500 in the Pyrenees. Alp 2500 is home to the two ski resorts; La Molina and Masella, and offers 135 km of ski runs! It is Catalonia’s largest skiable area! With a vertical drop of 935 m and 117 ski runs you will sure find suitable runs for all skiing levels. You can read all about our skiing adventures here on a specific post here.
