The environment of Ardaix Resort is ideal for a variety of activities.
On a cultural level, La Cerdanya and l’Alt Urgell tie in with the tradition of the Catalan Romanesque. You may visit many shrines and churches, as well as the Diocesan Museum and the Cathedral in La Seu.For the more daring, the Olympic Park in La Seu offers the possibility to go rafting and canoeing.
Hiking is another of the highlights of the area. The Camí dels Segadors and dels Bons Homes are some of the known routes. Moreover, La Cerdanya and Andorra are full of resorts where you can practice downhill skiing and cross country skiing. And of course, the Mountain Bike, 4×4 rental, or horse-riding, will let you enjoy the forest trails.Finally, from Ardaix Resort, we also suggest mushroom hunting and fishing in the river Segre.
Come along in February to make the Burial of the Sardine, and costume parties. At Easter the youngest make La Mona. And for Sant Joan, we have dinner with fireworks. In August, young men and ladies don’t miss the foam parties, and the night of the 15th we have a ball with orchestra. For the Puríssima, the Kings from Orient’s page, or Santa Claus himself, come to collect letters from the children.
Not to mention, the Butifarrada and Sardinada days. We also organize excursions outside to look for ‘rovellons’, or fishing at the same campsite.
Alpine and Nordic Skiing
Only twenty minutes away from the ski slopes of Andorra, La Masella and La Molina, and close to the Nordic Skiing circuit of Lles, our campsite is a perfect accommodation to go skiing. This is one of the main attractions of the area, which is particularly lively in winter due to all the leisure offer in the nearby towns, as Puigcerdà or La Seu d’Urgell.
Mountain Bike / Quads / Horse-riding
You can go horse-riding at 4 Potes, where you can go on individual and group tours, for children and adults. In the Olympic Park you will be able to rent Mountain Bikes, and go on outings. In the Pla de Santirs Karting you may make races for every age group.
At La Molina every summer the Parc Aventura is organized, with zip lines, boat rides and quads.
In winter there is snow slides and dog sleds.Not to mention Caldea in Andorra, where you can enjoy splendid baths.
Camí dels segadors
The time needed for this hike is about 7-8 hours. The Camí dels Segadors starts from Gosols, traverses the Pas dels Gosolans, and goes down the valley of the Ridolaina, reaching Bellver de Cerdanya. An interesting option is to do the route in winter conditions, with skis or snowshoes.
Camí dels bons homes
El Camí dels Bons Homes follows in the Cathar footsteps through medieval villages, Romanesque churches, and castles. This is a route that, apart from its historical values, flows through the natural park Cadí-Moixeró protected area, and allows the sight of beautiful landscapes. It also helps visiting plenty of mountain villages, some of which preserve legends or have literary tradition.
For lovers of Romanesque art, the regions of l’Alt Urgell, La Cerdanya and also Andorra, represent a true paradise, as they are the richest of the Pyrenees in terms of number of buildings in that style. The area is divided into eight itineraries, collectively known as the Romanesque route.
