The BUFF® MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL Vall de Boí will take place on July 7, 8 and 9 in the town of Barruera, in the Parc Nacional d’Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici, an ideal setting for experts and non-experts to discover and experience the mountains and will include the fourth edition of the epic BUFF® Epic Trail Aigüestortes race.
Yoga, climbing … and Kids Nature Campus
The activities that make up the festival are designed so that children and adults and experts and amateurs can spend a sporty and cultural weekend full of entertainment.
Attendees will be able to choose from practicing yoga surrounded by nature to starting a via ferrata, participating in a traditional event like carrying “falles” from the mountain in Erill la Vall (recognized as World Heritage by UNESCO) and listening to live music.
Children are the main protagonists of this festival, and a range of activities has been designed for them with the aim of educating them about respecting and caring for the environment, having fun practicing sports, and, above all, having fun on weekend.
To do this, from participating in a family bike ride to starting trail running with the Mini Sky Race, the little ones have their own space at this event, like the workshops at the Kids Nature Campus, a space created for the children’s enjoyment and learning.
As part of this mountain festival, you will be able to enjoy other activities such as: different trekking trails in Barruera and its surroundings with Vall de Boí Trek, canyoning, rafting and orienteering.
The festival will include different events and activities that will be split into those geared towards a general public seeking to get to know and discover the mountain and another part with top-level sports competitions.
