French Pyrenees holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

The Alps' edgier cousin, the Pyrenees have a rougher beauty than their loftier counterpart, but are still a snow-capped Shangri-La for walkers, bikers, skiers and those less adrenalin-charged amongst us who just appreciate a bloody good view. The terrain is great for snowshoeing and horse riding on French Pyrenees holidays, and the age-old mountain thoroughfares reveal an intriguing mix of isolated valleys.

Pyrenees family activity holiday
Every activity was great - extremely challenging but with great guides who helped us all to succeed (more)Kathy Halliday
The activities were all superbly planned, organised and great fun. White water rafting was enjoyed by all of the family, the scenic mountain walk was enhanced by local species being pointed out for us and information on how the various rock formations occurred. (more)Mary Fretwell
I particularly loved our mountain walk, with spectacular views and carpets of Pyrenean irises, and I think one of the highlights for all of us was swimming in a beautiful mountain lake. (more)Trisha Cochrane

Pyrenees guided walking holiday
Just go for it - this is a company run by good people and it's a really nice set-up. Tremendous! (more)Richard Marriott
The local community did benefit as we ate locally produced/sourced food and wine and stopped for breaks in local cafes. The local community were, without exception, welcoming and friendly. (more)Alex Sohal
Most memorable was discovering the local history and wildlife under the care of our very knowledgeable hosts, plus lots of brilliant walks in the beautiful Pyrenean Mountains, plus the excellent food! (more)Caroline Rae

Pyrenees winter walk, France
Memorable parts? The fantastic group of people that I shared my holiday with... like minded, laugh a minute, make your own fun people! Our free time was even spent as a group, in search of Lucheon's best sledging spots, we were not disappointed! Tips? Don't skimp on your outdoor gear... good gaiters are a 'must have' item and if you're lucky suncream and sunglasses! Local benefits? Our last group activity, on the way to the airport, was a stop off at the local recycling point,... (more)Pippa Purser

Activity holidays in the Pyrenees
Enjoyed all the activities, the chalet and food were great and all the guides were very friendly and experienced. Fantastic holiday, would certainly recommend to friends. (more)Jean Elliott
The most memorable part was seeing the fabulous scenery of the Pyrenees, walking in them, seeing the wildlife, and then all the activities we undertook as part of the multi-activity holiday. (more)Sally Preece
A great itinerary with a chance to try out some activities we wouldn’t normally get the chance to try. (more)Alison Cousland
From £695 - £805 excluding flights
Ski touring holiday in the French Pyrenees
Memorable parts? Making tracks in perfect powder under blue sky, skiing from summit to valley bottom feeling like you are the only ones on the mountain. Ok, then the snow suddenly changes as you go from sun to shade and you fall over in an inelegant heap, get back up and carry on with a smile on your face...... Tips? If you can, try to put a group of at least four together and pay a little extra so that you can have a guide just for your party as we did. We asked for a guide who spoke...
