Welcome to MountainBug. We’re experts in Pyrenees activity holidays including walking, trekking, cycling, canyoning, multi-activity, adventure holidays, skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, ski touring and a whole range of other activities.
Whatever your level or pace, we’ll help you enjoy the mountains with our range of summer and winter activity holidays. As we’re a small company, we can adjust our holidays and calendar of activities to suit you. Contact us or read more to find your ideal active mountain holiday.
We are based in the Pyrenees, on the border between France and Spain. We have holidays running in both the French and Spanish Pyrenees, which allow us to make the most of the very different climatic zones of these mountains .

The Pyrenees are also great for families, and our family section explains all the family activity holidays we offer and suggestions for younger families.
To find out more about what we offer, please either read about each holiday type or visit our Winter Calendar and Summer Calendar. These detail our holidays, prices and availability.
Why choose MountainBug?
We are a small, independent, outdoor activity holiday company, run by people who are passionate about the mountains and helping our visitors enjoy them. We are straight-talking, honest and conscientious – which is why our guests come back year after year.
Some other reasons to choose MountainBug include:
MountainBug is based in the traditional mountain village of Barèges, part of the Grand Tourmalet ski resort, in the High Pyrenees of Southern France. Barèges is the perfect location for summer and winter activity holidays.
Many of our holidays are run from our 3-star chalet or hotel (all rooms en-suite) in Barèges, although for the trekking holidays and special walking holidays, you will be sleeping in mountain refuges.
