Description of Pyrenees activity holiday

This centre based Pyrenees activity holiday is one of the best ways to discover Andorra, known by many for its skiing but where, on our summer holidays, we introduce you to some of its other Pyrenean thrills. Every day is different, hiking in Siscaro National Park one day, and cycling in Cortals Valley the next.

Our activities are adrenalin filled but aren’t meant to be super challenging, so there is a support vehicle on hand at all times, in case you want to dip in and out of the adventures on offer. Some people love zip lining from one dramatic viewpoint to another, others prefer to have their adventure on water, white water rafting down the Noguera Pallaresa River just over the Spanish border in Sort.

Andorra is also terrific mountain biking terrain, which you will discover in Andorra’s old Iron Route and Ordino Valley. You can always aim high in these beautiful Pyrenean peaks, or you can take a support vehicle up and just enjoy a hike or a cycle back down again.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Pyrenees activity holiday

Responsible mission: As adventure travellers we relish and celebrate the diversity of the world. We also recognise our obligation to protect the environments that we explore. Our aim is to tread lightly, whilst contributing to maintain the world’s culture and nature, and most importantly to engage the help of all our customers to utilise the potential of tourism as a tool to aid sustainable development. We believe that responsible travellers are welcome in the places that they visit.

On this trip: This trip provides income for a variety of local business, from our ground agents to the small, independent hotel where the group are based. The variety of activities on this trip are all operated by local companies so the money spent by our groups directly benefits the local economy of Soldeu and provides vital employment. All activities are devised to cause minimum environmental impact on the region being explored.

Responsible code: Being Responsible is at the heart of everything our company does - full details of our code can be found on our website. The local supplier for this trip will promote our responsible travel code throughout your adventure. You will also receive specific information on this trip’s responsibility in your trip notes.

Helping to minimise negative impact:
All of our customers are invited to offset their international flight emissions. Contributions go to the Blue Ventures Carbon Offset program, a non-profit organisation which provides solar stoves for subsistence communities in Madagascar, benefiting the people and protecting the environment. We also contribute £2 per person towards offsetting of your in-country travel. We fully offset all emissions from our staff travel and run an energy efficient office.

Giving something back: We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. You as a customer choose where these funds are used from a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation.

Partnerships: As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practises throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The amazing adventure activities and the people, the staff and other guests
were all really great fun.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


You need to be flexible and confident mountain walking, mountain biking
and happy to push your boundaries!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Generally, yes, used local bars, restaurants, shops, activities. Best to bring a resizable water bottle and something to put your lunch in. Guest house should reduce plastic use lots of unnecessary cling film used, plastic water bottles, plastic bags, individual tea bags sealed in plastic, disposable plastic table cloths. Overall though a great week wa had by all.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Absolutely stunning, exciting and inspiring.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Cycling on Tour de France route.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Go with the flow! Do everything but at a level you feel comfortable with -variations galore to meet individual needs. Bring walking boots not shoes unless you are happy to have wet feet all day!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Family run guest house, local guides and activities. Quite a bit of driving in private vehicle unavoidable due to activities but used effectively. Minor negative: Guest house could reduce plastic use - individual tea bags sealed in plastic, disposable plastic table cloths. Could have a recycling bin in communal area.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Amazing!

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are tackling the issue of single use plastic on our Andorran trip step by step. We have introduced use of reusable lunch boxes and are hoping to add reusable water bottles too. It’s good to hear other suggestions – table clothes, etc. This will become our focus too. I will catch up with operators by the end of this month and will bring this up as a point that we’d like to change in nearby future.
