Formigal ski resort
Q van toeristische kwaliteit is een keurmerk dat de kwaliteit aangeeft van de toeristensector in Spanje.
The Formigal ski resort is located in the Tena Valley in the centre of the Aragonese Pyrenees, and has made a name for itself as a key destination for winter sports lovers. That's why Formigal continues to invest in innovation and fun in order to offer an even wider variety of activities. What's more, all its main slopes are arranged across four valleys, with access via any of the four entrances to the resort, and with approximately 6000 parking spaces. Each entrance has a beginner's area. What's more, the free Ski-Bus service which links the four entrances of the ski resort with the residential area is a dream come true for every skier: everything the foot of the slopes: you start skiing as soon as you arrive. Formigal also has a heliport in Sextas.
