Walking Holidays Levels
Walking – Levels
The following table shows the different levels of walking holiday we offer. If you would like more information, or want to discuss the walking level most suitable for your group, please contact us.
|Taster||These accompanied holidays combine gentle mountain walking with leisurely breaks and some days sight-seeing.|
|Explorer||These are the gentlest of our guided mountain walking holidays, with up to five hours of easy walking in stunning scenery, on defined mountain paths and tracks.|
|Discoverer||Our Discoverer guided mountain walks involve up to eight hours walking a day and ascents of up to 1000m. We explore remote cirques, valleys and lakes and climb peaks for breathtaking views. Some of these holidays involve one or two nights in a refuge, so we can experience magnificent and remote Pyrenean sunrises and sunsets. This is our most popular level.|
|Adventurer||With ascents averaging 1000m and approximately nine hours walking in a day, we’ll tackle some of the Pyrenees’ 3000m + peaks, walking along airy mountain ridges and slim tracks. Often these holidays involve a night in a mountain refuge. This is our guides favourite level!|
|Trekking||On these hut to hut holidays, we hike on some of the famous long-distance Pyrenean routes for an average of eight hours a day, enjoying the remoteness and wildness as we criss-cross between the French and Spanish frontiers.|
