Summer Holidays and Activities
In summer you can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities in the beautiful Aran Valley, such as rock climbing and via ferrata, hiking, mountain biking, rafting and canyoning. There are no glaciers to speak of so no danger of crevasses or serac falls.
In addition to all the sporting activities available, this is also an area rich in history, nature and culture. Many species of wildlife exist in the valley, including eagles, roe deer, marmotes, and chamois. Most villages have a summer festival, where traditional crafts and activities are demonstrated. These villages form a 'Romantic route' of 12th century churches and are physically connected by the “Camin Reiau” (Royal Walk) footpath, which dates back to Roman times.
Eira Ski Lodge in summer
In the summer we often have a BBQ on the terrace at €25 per head if there is sufficient demand. There are around two hundred restaurants in the valley for those who want to eat out. If we have rented out the whole lodge we can of course provide evening meals by arrangement.
