What do we do and see?

On this holiday we will do a mixture of gentle mountain walking and sightseeing. On your walking days, we will walk on clearly marked tracks and paths in the foothills and villages of the Pyrenees, for up to 5 hours a day, including a generous lunch-break and plenty of stops for photo-taking. Our sight-seeing days will take in famous Pyrenean tourist attractions, such as the world famous observatory at the Pic du Midi. On these days we will have the chance to either dine at local restaurants or buy local produce for a tasty picnic.
