Of course, the majority of people visit the area for its fantastic skiing, but there is an awful more to do here. Here we look at just a few of the non-ski activities that can be enjoyed in Baqueira Beret during your stay.

Ice Skating

No winter resort would be complete without a chance to get in some ice skating. Baqueira Beret is no different. Take your blades with your or rent some while you’re there and spend some quality time on the ice.

Snow-Shoeing

If you’re someone who enjoys hiking, then snow-shoeing is a great way to enjoy the area’s wonderful scenic views at your own pace. Snowshoes distribute body weight and stop you sinking into the deep snow. You can book a guided experience with an instructor to show you exactly how it’s done.

Dinner in a Mountain Hug

Once evening has arrived and the excitement of the day has died down, why not try a wonderful meal at mountain hug. There’s nothing quite like enjoying good food in a cosy environment after a long day on the slopes.

Bowling

This has just been a small selection of the wide variety of Apres Ski activities available in Baqueira Beret. It just goes to show that there’s much more to the area than simply world-class skiing. Want to try any of these? Call as for booking your Baqueira experience.

Pintxo Pote

After you’ve finished a long and enjoyable day on the slopes of Baqueira Beret, you’ll likely have worked up something of an appetite and it’s well served by the Spanish tradition that’s known as Pintxo Pote. Pintxo Pote takes places all across Northern Spain on one particular night of the week and in Baqueira Beret that night is a Tuesday.

So, what exactly is Pintxo Pote? Well, it’s a night of the week where various bars in the town offer a selection of fantastic local wines and beers along with a pintxo – which is a Spanish word for small snacks that are eaten in bars. There is typically just a small fixed price involved too, of around €2-3 and it’s wonderful way to sample some of the amazing local cuisine – but in bitesize portions.

Where to Look

Finding establishments offering Pintxo-Pote on Tuesday evenings in Baqueira Beret and along the Valley (Artíes, Vielha…) is quite simple, as you’ll soon discover that those who do will often put out signs outside to advertise the fact. You’ll always be assured of some truly mouthwatering and interesting culinary fare, as each bar will have their own particular take on the tradition – so be prepared to try something new and interesting!

What Time Does Pintxo Pote Occur?

Whilst the times that Pintxo Pote will happen in Baqueira Beret and the Valley will vary from bar to bar, it generally gets underway at about 7 pm and goes on until around 11 pm – or until the food and drink on offer runs out. As you walk in you’ll find the Pintxo Pote selection offered lined up on the bar’s counter ready for customers to tuck in.

Pintxo Pote is a popular event in Baqueira Beret, so you’ll find it to be a well attended social affair and whatever you eat and drink on the night, you’re assured of a time you’ll likely never forget.
