Not only Barcelona has wonderful beaches ideal to go tanning or swimming in winter, but moreover, it is very close to many ski resorts. But skiing is not the only activity you can do in these resorts, there is a large range of discoveries and adventures to try in the snow. Here is a selection of unusual mountain activities.

Mountain activities

Ice diving

Ice diving

If you are seeking extreme sensations and different activities, ice diving may be the ideal activity for you. Test yourself to the limit to feel the thrill of adrenaline and feel like you were in the setting of a science fiction movie!

Once you get used to being under a ceiling of ice and in cold water, you can finally relax, admire your surroundings, and play with your exhaled air bubbles trapped under the ice. The ice blocks the wind and prevents underwater particles from moving, increasing the visibility a lot compared to regular diving.

Of course you will be with a team of professionals who will ensure your safety.
