Walking & Trekking
From lazy walks through pretty mountain villages, to overnight refuge treks and serious scrambles to bag the wild 3000+ metre peaks, the Pyrenees offer something for everyone.
We have a range of walking holidays for you to choose from.
A typical week’s walking holiday takes in the more accessible cirques, lakes, gentle ridges and easy peaks. We’ll pass through pretty mountain villages and along ancient paths to hidden mountain monuments, getting a real feel for the mountain way of life. The Pyrenees are wonderful because, within a short walk from a high ski or col-road, we can find ourselves in a completely unspoiled wilderness.
Our Discoverer guided mountain walking holidays are for keen walkers looking to expand their European walking and discover the most beautiful walking routes of the Pyrenees. You need to be comfortable walking for up to 8 hours a day and doing some ascents.
This Discoverer walking week is based in the French High Pyrenees. It includes a hike round the UNESCO World Heritage Site Cirque de Gavarnie and a three day (two night) mini-trek exploring the very heart of the wild and unspoilt Neouvielle Nature Reserve, often called the Lake District of the Pyrenees.
Our Adventurer mountain walks can be up to 10 hours a day and quite challenging. However, if you have a reasonable level of fitness and stamina, a good head for heights and a desire to get off the beaten track, you’ll enjoy this week.
During this stage of the HRP we stay in France to see some of the highlights of the French Pyrenees.
During stage 2 of the HRP (High Pyrenean Route), we hike into Spain, to enjoy great scenery on both sides of the border. Highlights of this stage include:
Mountainbug offers Alpine skiing in the impressive Grand Tourmalet (Barèges-La Mongie) ski domain; the largest ski resort in the French Pyrenees. We offer either hotel or catered chalet accommodation, as well as ski-touring and off-piste trips
The Pyrenees are an ideal place to get off the beaten tracks and into the real mountains. Ski touring is a technique which allows experienced skiers to travel across all different types of terrain in the open mountains. It uses a special type of binding, leaving your heel free for uphill skiing.
Snow-shoeing is a relatively unknown but excellent activity. It’s the perfect way to get deep into the beautiful winter mountains without the need for skis, and it’s accessible to everyone with very little training required. The Barèges area is scattered with wild valleys, frozen lakes and rolling ridge tops
The Pyrenees are a brilliant place to discover the challenging sport of canyoning. Canyoning is generally only available in the mountains, where steep valleys and rushing mountain streams lead to the formation of canyons
The renovated, 300 year old chalet, Les Cailloux, is rated 3-star by Gites de France. It has five spacious, ensuite rooms, one of which is a very large two-bedroom suite. Guests also have access to the spacious lounge and games room, sauna and gear storage/drying areas.
