Their activities generated 15,823,196 shares on social networks in just one week.

Participants included Doris Casares, a blogger and journalist who writes for digital media such as 3viajesand founder of Spain’s most influential community of travel bloggers, Travel Inspirers; British bloggers Iain Mallory, author of the Mallory on travel blog and Andy Higgs of Grown-up travel; video blogger Diego Pons of Viajando con Diego, and Mariana Calleja, writer for the Traveldudes and TravelThirst blogs.

The blogtrip Snow Family Adventure #InPyrennees took place between 18 and 25 February, with the visit of a British blogger and his family to the Pirineu de Girona destination to discover the attractions for families offered by the Cerdanya and El Ripollès ski resorts.
