A fun-filled trip with 2 full-days and 2 half-days of activities to keep you busy but allow plenty of time to relax and explore on your own. Activities include caving, rock-climbing, rafting, hot-dog and the brilliant Chlorofil tree-top park.
Who is this for?
Our "Action" multi activity holidays are aimed at active people looking to discover the Pyrenees mountains from every angle - on land and in the water, above and underground. We’ve selected a range of activities spread throughout the week to keep you busy, but still leave plenty of time for relaxing and exploring in your own time.
This week you’ll have two accommodation choices in the traditional French mountain village of Barèges, either our 3-star catered chalet or our 3-star hotel.
Both are of a high standard, providing amenities to help you relax after your day’s activities, including filling meals.
What will you do?
This is a typical week’s itinerary for an Adrenaline Pyrenees multi-activity week.
Saturday - arrival
Arrive late afternoon. We suggest a leisurely 45 minute stroll to the creperie at St Justin where you can enjoy a traditional French snack in the sunshine. The restaurant is on an isolated promontory looking out onto the lovely Bastan valley, the village of Barèges and the towering mountains on every side - it can only be accessed on foot and has wonderful views.
Sunday – Morning caving, afternoon rafting
An adventurous day with activities in the morning and afternoon. We start the day with a journey underground exploring the cave systems close to Lourdes before donning wetsuits for some afternoon rafting on the Gave de Pau river.
Monday – Free Day
This is your free day to use as you please.
Tuesday – Hot dog
Another chance to splash about on the river, this time using 2-man inflatable kayaks, also known as "hot dogs".
Wednesday – free day
A free day for you to either relax, explore the local area, do an additional activity or repeat a favourite one!
Thursday – Chlorofil tree-top adventure
Today's adventure takes us to Chlorofil park where we make like apes high up in the tree tops.
Friday – rock climbing
We head to the beautiful Neouvielle Nature Reserve with a UIAGM high mountain guide, to tackle the granite slabs and crags above the Glere lakes.
Saturday – time to leave
After an action packed week, we leave for the airport in the morning, ready to head home.
An important note about multi-activity holidays
This is an example itinerary for an "Action" multi-activity holiday in the Pyrenees.
Our programme is completely flexible and we can offer tailored holidays with your own choice and number of activities.
Our price for the above multi activity holiday itinerary is 750 € per person, or 700 € pp for 3 or more sharing a family bedroom in the chalet or a standard room in Hotel du Tourmalet.
This includes all activities with qualified guides, equipment hire, local transport, food and accommodation. You must have your own insurance to cover these activities. The price may vary if you select your own activities. Please consult our glossary of activities for more ideas.
Some activities are weather dependent and may be changed at short notice. We will always offer you an alternative activity, such as more guided walking (e.g the beautiful Neouvielle lakes tour with an optional swim in a chilly mountain lake), horse riding, mountain biking and attractions such as the showcaves at Betharam, the Pic du Midi observatory, the Pic de Jer funicular and the town of Lourdes.
