Description

The Aiguamog Valley is a really special place. One of its distinctive is that it has sulphurous waters and, therefore, it was traditionally a place frequented by Aranese people to enjoy healing baths. From Salardú, it runs for 8km before reaching Banhs de Tredós, where nowadays we can still experience bathing in hot springs in an absolutely wonderful environment. We will not have anything better to wish for after a fantastic day of mountain skiing than a thermal bath at moonlight surrounded by nature covered on snow and a rest at the fantastic Hotel of Banhs de Tredós.

Another distinguished characteristic is that at the end of the valley we find the “Circ of Colomers”, almost 3000m high peaks that surround hundreds of lakes in an incomparable granitic landscape. If you really want to spend two unforgettable days in the mountains, this is the program, do not hesitate.
