BUNGEE TRAMPOLINES

Jump!
Adults and children alike can enjoy this fun activity at Pal's La Caubella base area. Strapped into a harness and suspended on elastic ropes above a trampoline, you can safely jump and somersault as high as you dare.

HORSE RIDING

Pony Trekking
Departing from the Pal base area at La Caubella, with routes/duration tailored to your equine experience and/or budget.
Available only by prior arrangement.

MUSHING

Dog Sleding
Mushing (Muixing  in Catalan) is one of Vallnord's most popular alternative activities. Teams of husky dogs pull passengers in Arctic sleds, guided by an experienced musher, around the wooded slopes in the Setúria Valley.
Based at the Coll de la Botella area, close to the Far West bar/restaurant and the Pal-Arinsal cable car base station.

SNOW BIKES

Ski Sitting Down
Swap wheels for skis and ‘get on your bike’: accompanied by an experienced instructor, you ascend via a chairlift and then descend on-piste seated on these hilarious contraptions.

Wearing a pair of mini-skis fixed to standard ski boots for balance, you steer with the handlebars and by leaning into turns.
Available at Arinsal's Comallempla base area. Further information is available from the ‘Ski Bike’ cabin next to the Panoramix roof terrace.

SLEDGING

Tobogganing
No previous experience is needed for this classic fun activity. Simply sit down and hold tight to race down the snowfields on a glorified tray!
Available at Pal's La Caubella base area all day and at Arinsal's beginners' zone as part of evening events such as the Torchlight Descent.

SNOWSHOEING

Winter Hiking
This is definitely the best way for non-skiers to get on the snow and out into the mountains. Modern snowshoes are made of lightweight materials and are very easy to master. They work by spreading your weight over a wider surface area, allowing you to walk more easily over deep snow, using a pair a ski poles for balance.
Waymarked itineraries have been prepared through the Setúria Valley, departing from the Coll de la Botella.
Caution
Stay off to the sides of the pistes when venturing on-foot into the ski area.
