The ski resort of Baqueira Beret is located in the Val d'Aran and Pallars Sobirà (Valls d'Àneu) in the province of Lleida. As part of the Catalan Pyrenees, the largest ski resort in Spain shares space with the only National Park in Catalonia, the Aigüestortes Sant Maurici National Park.

The ski resort of Baqueira Beret, which was founded in the 60s by the local people, is divided into three areas: Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua. Baqueira-Beret with its westernly orientation is favored due to the weather from the Atlantic and usually has the best snow and slope conditions with 1000 m altitude difference.

The Aran Valley (Val d'Aran) comprises a total of 33 villages - characterized by the houses of stone and wood and many ancient Romanesque churches - which extend over 9 towns with Viella (Vielha) constitutes the main location.
