Hotel Vall de Núria

Estación de Montaña Vall de Núria, Queralbs, Catalonia, 17534, Spain

A mountain refuge and hotel run by the government of Catalonia, this family-oriented base camp with double, triple, and quadruple rooms offers comfortable lodging and dining at 6,500 feet above sea level within an imposing gray complex. For a day's outing or as a starting point for a major hike (12 hours) to Ulldeter, above Setcases, or even a weeklong walk to the Mediterranean, this is a handy spot, although it is accessible only by the cogwheel train from Ribes de Freser (train tickets are included in room price). Camping is also available on the hotel's grounds, and a youth hostel (www.xanascat.cat; 972/732048) is nearby.
