An exciting week with 4 full-days and 1 half-day of activities. This is an action-packed holiday designed to keep you moving. Activities include canyoning, adventure caving, rock-climbing, rafting, hiking and tree-top adventure park.
Who is this for?
Our "Adventure" multi activity holidays are aimed at lovers of the outdoors, who are just not happy sitting still. This way you can discover the Pyrenees mountains from every angle - on land and in the water, above and underground. We’ve selected a range of activities to keep you on your toes all week but with time to relax and catch your breath before you head out again for another adventure.
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 Adventure 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 – guided day hike
You'll be spoiled for choice with such a variety of spectacular walking in this area. We suggest a local classic - the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cirque de Gavarnie.
Monday – Canyoning
One of our favourite activities, canyoning is an all-round adventure involving jumping, sliding, swimming and sliding your way along waterfalls, tunnels and pools in a racing mountain stream.
Tuesday – rock-climbing
We head to the beautiful Neouvielle Nature Reserve, the Lake District of the Pyrenees, with a UIAGM high mountain guide to tackle the granite slabs and crags above the Glere lakes.
Wednesday – free day
This is your free day to use as you please.
Thursday - Caving
Today's caving is anything but a tourist trip.
Friday – morning rafting, afternoon Chlorofil treetop park
An action-packed day with a morning rafting on the rushing Gave de Pau river. Then, after a picnic lunch beside the river, we make like apes at Chlorofil.
Saturday – time to leave
After an action packed week, we leave for the airport in the morning, ready to head home.
