The Ter valley is a popular destination for walkers traversing the Catalan part of the coast to coast GR11 route. The GR11.7 is a popular variant which runs from the incredibly picturesque Nùria through Coma de Vaca to the Coll de la Marrana at an altitude of 2529m. The route is served well by two refuges; the Refugi d’Ulldeter at 2235m and the relatively new Refugi Coma de Vaca, from where rock climbing and winter mountaineering are also possible.

Located at an altitude of 2000 metres over the Ter Valley, the ski resort of Vallter 2000 is on a glacial cirque called Círculo de Morens-Ull de Ter, and is the most eastern ski resort in the Pyrenees. This privileged geographical location serves up breathtaking panoramic views from Roses Bay on the Mediterranean sea all the way down to Cap de Creus on the Costa Brava.

The skiing is limited to 15km of south facing slopes between 1959m to 2535m but does hold some interesting challenges, notably the 5km Riu-Xalet run. Good snow cannon coverage and a chilly microclimate normally ensures that despite its delightfully sun drenched, south facing aspect the snow lingers until April. To compliment this family resort, a dedicated sledging area and snow shoeing area provide a fun alternative to the pistes.
