The Pyrenees – a stone’s throw away.
Due to Vielha’s ideal location, at the heart of the Spanish Pyrenees and only 25 km from the French border, its attractive accommodation options make the perfect base from which to explore some equally fascinating neighbouring areas. If you plan to stay in Vielha for several days, and are prepared to clock up the mileage in your own vehicle, some fantastic mountain roads can take you to other beautiful parts of the Pyrenean range.
We have put together a list of day trips using Vielha as a base that will take you to nearby destinations with something for everyone.
