We took the train from Ribes to Vall de Nuria and had an excellent day of hiking. We had a little additional help with our hike by taking the cable car partly up one of the mountains. We then hiked another 2-3 hours up some not too difficult trails and were treated to beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Highly recommend this area for hiking.

We wanted to see the Pyrenees and so this was a perfect day trip outside Barcelona.

We had a car and after getting out of Barcelona, the drive was much easier. We initially wanted to go to Queralbs but ended up in Ribes instead. We took the rack railway from there to Nuria Valley, which stopped by Queralbs.

It's very pretty and the scenery reminded us of the Cascades Mtn ranges in our state of Washington. It's not as exciting as going up Jungfraujoch but if you are in Barcelona, it's a perfect day trip to get out of the heat. We took a couple of hikes around the area before taking the rail back to Ribes. We saw some people hiking back to Queralbs.

Went as a side trip from Barcelona away from the traffic of the visit to view a mountain with an enchanting lake and sanctuary. Tried canoeing with my son and plenty of hiking opportunities. The price is even good at 30 euros return trip from Placa Catalunya including train and rack railway. Ask for the Trenatura ticket.

Good information boards and well marked hiking tracks in stunning surrondings. Nice to walk one way and take the train the other. Will go back!

We visited this place as a group of University students from Lisbon and Barcelona in the winter. The weather was excellent, providing a panoramic view in the day as well as night. Perfect ski resort, also historically significant.
