Vall de Nuria is a small mountain resort that does not impress by the number of slopes or ski lifts, but by the beauty and tranquility of the landscape. The place has a great charm and is full of history. The image with the lake, the sanctuary, the glacial valleys and the torrents, all surrounded by peaks of almost 3,000 meters, is really fantastic.
This cozy and familiar ski resort is located in the Eastern Pyrenees at 2,000 m altitude, in the municipality of Queralbs. In the winter months it has all the necessary services for skiing practice and learning. In the rest of the year it becomes a starting point for mountain excursions. In addition the Marian sanctuary is a place of religious pilgrimage.

Vall de Nuria Rack Train

The only access route to the sanctuary and to the ski station of Vall de Nuria, apart from the mountain roads, is through one of the two rack railway lines existing in the Iberian Peninsula, built in 1931. The Vall de Núria rack train leaves Ribes de Freser and runs a distance of 12.5 km, surpassing a vertical drop of 1,059 meters in 40 minutes. The train route has four stations and one train stop.
The train ride is an attraction in itself. You must enjoy the spectacular landscape of high mountains and the exceptional views over the Gorges of the Núria river.
