The surrounding mountains act as a barrier to the winds, retaining the clouds and making La Cerdanya one of the areas with the most hours of sunshine in Europe, around 3,000 hours per year. This is the reason for the many solar energy facilities in La Cerdanya.
In summer, there are often afternoon storms, usually with sharp but short showers, which produce the intense greenery that characterises the region at a time when the rest of the territory is yellowish and dry.
In autumn and spring, sunny and rainy days alternate and even in winter, sun-dominated days are the norm. This makes skiing on the many Alpine and Nordic slopes so extraordinary. There are not many places where you can enjoy the snow with so much sun and bonanza.
The breadth of the valley, which is very flat in its central part and surrounded by mountains of up to 3,000 metres, offers walks and cycling for people with all kinds of different capacities.
La Cerdanya is an ideal environment for horse enthusiasts. There are many facilities and possibilities for field trips, and golfers also have up to 5 golf courses in the area.
The biggest thrills for the bold or more peaceful enjoyment with your family. There are several companies that organise activities near the guest house.
