"Aran lo hace bien", new accreditation for Aranese establishments.

Torisme de Val d’Aran collaborates with the initiative “Aran does it well”, a seal created by Viu Aran to accredit those shops and establishments committed to complying with current regulations and offering their services correctly. At present, some 75 companies in the valley in the gastronomy, trade, activities, accommodation, industry and service sectors already have this accreditation.

This proposal also includes the “Tarjeta de Aran” (Aran Card), which provides interesting benefits in numerous establishments throughout the year, as well as in different tourist services. It can be acquired in Tourist Offices, Hotels and associated shops at a special price during this first year for only 5 euros. Thanks to this card you can obtain discounts in establishments, offers in tourist services and other advantages.

Viu Aran, the digital commercial and tourist guide of the Val d’Aran, aims to increase the visual presence of Aran business and company information in different digital media. The aim of this guide is that both locals and tourists can find the widest range of industrial services, wellness, gastronomy, leisure, places and other services of interest.

Cornèrs d'Aran, free walks in the most beautiful corners of the valley

The most beautiful corners, wild nature, fauna, charming villages with a hidden past, unknown stories and legends, mythology, traditions, curiosities… the most hidden secrets of the valley uncovered. The Cornèrs d’Aran are free guided walks through some of the most emblematic places in the Val d’Aran, each of which contains beautiful stories to tell our visitors. They will take place from 28 July to 6 September.

The initiative, promoted by the Consèlh Generau d’Aran and Torisme Val d’Aran includes 9 morning routes of between 40 minutes and 1:40 h. and four night routes of low and medium difficulty, aimed at a family audience. The itineraries, with limited places and previous booking, take place every day of the week at different times.

Artiga de Lin, Bossòst, Es Bòrdes, Garòs, Arties, Les, Tredòs, Vilamòs and the Val de Toran are the places chosen for the morning visits. More enigmatic and equally attractive, the night outings offer beer and ideas, mythology of the sky and bats.

Guidaran, the new Val d'Aran touristic App

Intuitive, fast, easily accessible and with information on all the tourist products of interest in the Val d’Aran, Guidaran is the new app presented virtually this morning by the Conselhèria de Torisme de Val d’Aran. The event was attended by its creators, Álvaro Ariño and Joan Carabias, and the advisor on territorial matters, Dani Gavaldà, in addition to the Síndic d’Aran, Paco Boya, and the Conselhèr of Economy, Tourism and Economic Promotion, Juan Antonio Serrano.

Guidaran is a smartphone application compatible with IOS and Android, to share and centralize tourist information. Aimed at visitors and the Aranese themselves, it can be consulted in 4 languages: Catalan, Spanish, French and English. It will also be available throughout the year, adapting the products to each season.

How it works

Guidaran has 5 screens that direct to the information contained in the app with different purposes: product categories; maps with identifying icons; search; identification of nearby points; and more information (services, etc…). The app can be downloaded through the QR codes located in the different tourist offices of the valley, in strategic points of the area, in brochures and in the information published on this website.

From the Consèlh Generau and the Conselheria de Torisme have been very satisfied with the operation of the same and has welcomed the technological talent of its young creators Aranese. It has also been stressed that the App will minimize the use of paper brochures and expedite the procedures in the offices of Torisme in times of capacity constraints due to current security measures.
