Thank you for a wonderful holiday. The scenery is superb and the walks really enjoyable.
The standard of the guides was excellent -
Hike Pyrenees did a perfect job constructing a bespoke tour for a group of us in
our 50’s and 60’s with varied hiking experience. Everyone was thrilled with the trip.

knew how to tailor the trip to our particular group.

Hike Pyrenees is a highly attractive option for Americans to access the Pyrenees
mountains, hikes, wildlife and towns with a professionally run hiking group geared
to their needs. The team is solid, the scenery picturesque, the hikes well chosen
and the price excellent.

the hikes were varied. The innkeeper were warm and hospitable. We appreciated the
personal touch that both Anna and Phil put into our experience in the Pyrenees.
Stefan and Mary, Village to Village Self Guided, August 2012
We have really enjoyed our self guided holiday -

Jerry and Gill, Village to Village Guided, July 2012
I found the organisation very efficient, the guides were friendly, tolerant but gently
firm and encouraging. The week was colourful and energising and any pain was negated
by a sense of achievement.
Russell, Village to Village Guided, July 2012
The village to village hike was outstanding set against the magnificent backdrop
of the Valle de Tena. The walks were a perfect distance and each day provided a different
landscape. Walking directions were clear and the hotels gave a real Spanish flavour.
Excellent organisation from Hike Pyrenees!

A thoroughly enjoyable week of excellent walking, fantastic views along great routes
combined with superb hospitality in the hotels along the way. Thank you Phil and

A world class experience that left us with great take-
Stunning scenery; excellent guide; one of the best walking holidays we have ever

If you want to experience the Spanish Pyrenees there is no better way. Phil & Anna
have done an excellent job packaging a good hike and a local village experience.
Michael, Village to Village Self Guided, May 2012
We signed up for self guided hiking and Phil helped us select four walks -
The tour exceeded our expectations!!
Connie and Vince, Village to Village Self Guided, May 2012
We have had a fabulous holiday. We have thoroughly enjoyed the walks which were just
right for our ability. Our enjoyment was enhanced by Phil & Hannah’s knowledge of
the flora and fauna. P.s. Anna’s pack lunches were amazing!
Marie and Howard, Lakes & Valleys, September 2011
We had a wonderful week walking the ‘Lakes & Valleys’. We are glad we chose the guided
walks as we met new friends and learnt a lot more about the area than doing the walks
alone. The walks were varied and provided tailored challenges. Many thanks to Phil,
Anna and Hannah for a wonderful week of walking -
A really good week of walking in beautiful countryside with fantastic guides. I would
highly recommend this holiday to all walkers.
Sue, Private Group Holiday, September 2011
Another great week’s walking in Spain with Hike Pyrenees.

Debbie, Peaks & Passes, September 2011
Very personal service. Guides very well informed, helpful and accommodating to everyone’s
needs and interests. Diverse and well considered walks meeting all guests levels
of ability. Accommodation, food, lunches and Anna’s cakes excellent. Organisation
of rest day very well judged with time to relax and a group excursion for tapas al
fresco. Would definitely recommend Hike Pyrenees -
Being avid hikers from the Seattle area, we've always wanted to hike the Pyrenees
but were not quite sure that our limited Spanish speaking skills would let us negotiate
it on our own. Luckily, we booked a trip with Phil and all the logistics were taken
care of for us! Hikes were fantastic, group was superb, and we left feeling we'd
really seen the Ordesa valley. As our new international friends would say, the trip
Chris & Clay, Discover Ordesa, September 2011
My ‘Hike Pyrenees’ experience was fantastic. Phil, Anna and Hannah made an excellent
team and provided a unique, safe, well organised holiday package. Excellent value

and guides. Overall superb value for money. Thank you Phil & Hannah.

Phil & Hannah made our walking holiday perfect from the very good pack lunches to
the fabulous scenery. We will come again.
David & Janet, Discover Ordesa, September 2011
The holiday was great value. We especially liked the choice of two different walks
each day. In many instances it would have been very challenging to do self guided
versions of the hiking we did.
Carolyn & Wayne, Discover Ordesa, September 2011
A really wonderful holiday. Challenging and different. You need to be fit though
to enjoy it to the full. Wonderful, knowledgeable guides.
Peter, Peaks & Passes, September 2011
Excellent week getting to know the area. A very happy experience.

The level of support, care and attention from Phil and Anna was perfect for our self-
We have had an absolutely excellent week -
What a great first experience of a guided hiking holiday. It took about 3 minutes
after meeting Phil to shift from nerves at the physical challenge ahead to relaxed
excitement. The week was sociable, educational and stimulating in magnificent countryside.
Anna’s homemade packed lunches were to die for. Phil and Anna aren’t simply excellent
guides and hosts but they go the extra mile with unexpected added touches. As us
kiwis say “the tramp was awesome fun”.
Ian and Miranda, Lakes & Valleys, August 2011
Totally enjoyable experience, from the diversity of the walks, Phil’s in-
Phil was an excellent guide, looking after everyone and keeping us well informed

It’s really nice to find a company that o out of their way to tailor your holiday
to you and what you want. Thanks very much Phil & Anna.
Mike, Peaks & Passes, August 2011
Excellent holiday. Good walking in wonderful scenery. Phil was a very knowledgeable
and informative guide. A very relaxing week.
Mike & Patricia, Lakes & Valleys, August 2011
Having never considered guided walking before I was a little apprehensive. However
having enjoyed a brilliant, well organised (down to the smallest detail) week I cannot
understand why I hadn’t done it before! Phil and Anna’s fantastic hiking holidays
will be hard to beat though!
Sheena, Lakes & Valleys, August 2011
The extra special after-
A well organised week and a good introduction to the area. Fantastic walks with lots
to learn and a great hotel to relax in. Thanks to Anna and Phil for their efforts.

group and the weather. Excellent, many thanks.
Sue, Peaks & Passes, July 2011

A holiday that far exceeded my expectations due to the care and thoughtfulness of

Great walks, great guides and great hotel
Jill & Don, Discover Ordesa, July 2011
This was our second holiday with Hike Pyrenees and as before we had a wonderful time
in this stunning part of Spain. Phil & Anna provided an excellent service and were
very considerate of the personal needs of each member of the group. We will return!
Brian & Sandra, Private group holiday, June 2011
Great choice of walks for a group of mixed ability. The flexibility offered by Hike
Pyrenees has enhanced our enjoyment of the holiday.
Hamish, Maisead & Susan, Self Guided -
The holiday was very professionally run but still maintained that personal touch.
Excellent itinerary led by friendly and professional guides. Hannah was really good
and ensured no one in the group was left out. (and the home made flapjacks were yummy!)
Colin & Jill, Refugio Week, June 2011
Second holiday with Hike Pyrenees. Excellent time. Refugio Week very challenging
but hugely rewarding. Phil, Anna and Hannah were superb. Great time and long lasting
Tim, Refugio Week, June 2011
An awesome set of walks led by expert guides. The whole experience was a real adventure.
At times I was definitely outside my comfort zone but was pleased to ascend Pico
Tebbarai even if I couldn’t quite make it to the top of Monte Perdido.
Nick, Refugio Week, June 2011
I had a great week -
Wonderful memories of sunny walks in an area of spectacular beauty: limestone mountains,
woodland, wild flowers, vultures, waterfalls -
Blue skies, bright sun, bubbling brook, soaring cliff faces, snow topped mountains
and the chime of cowbells; all this in the first hour of our week of walking. Each
day was different. Our expectations were surpassed in every regard. If possible we
will return to do ‘Discover Ordesa’. Phil and Hannah clearly enjoy their work and
work hard to ensure each guests needs are met. Thanks.
Iain and Mary Anne, Lakes & Valleys, June 2011
It exceeded my expectations -
This walking holiday ticked all the right boxes. Loved it!
Valerie, Lakes & Valleys, June 2011
The Pyrenees superseded our expectations for a walking holiday both in terms of mountain
scenery but most of all with the unexpected amount and variety of flowers. They were
truly stupendous! All of this, coupled with the professional guiding ability and
expert flora and fauna knowledge that Phil possesses, made this the ideal walking
holiday – which of course would not have been sustainable without the substantial
lunches and snacks that Anna provided! Many thanks and best wishes to you both and
we hope to return at some time in the future.
Anne and Kevin, Private Group Guided Walking Holiday, June 2011
Very helpful, friendly and flexible service from initial enquiry through to final
The walks were relaxed, unhurried and informative. Each day was tailored to suit
the weather conditions and ability of the group. The pack lunches made by Anna were
varied and excellent.
Dave and Alex, Lakes & Valleys, June 2011
We really enjoyed our week. We loved all the walks -
We were made very welcome and the additional guidance given by Phil about the walks
was excellent -
The routes suggested by Phil were ideal for us. The scenery was superb and the accommodation
in Hotel Tierra de Biescas was very good and very friendly.
