Hiking in the Pyrenees

More hiking holidays in the Pyrenees

Here are some more photos of the superb holidays we had last July in the Pyrenees. We had a fantastic month of hiking and while the temperatures were a bit on the hot side, we had lots of sunshine and the rainjackets stayed in the rucksack the whole month!

Peaks & Passes, July 14th-21st

From the general views of the Valle de Tena from Pico Pacino to the red peak of Ayous on the French side, or the Martian landscape surrounding the Anayet as you get to the chains heading to the summit, we had another great week in wonderful weather. The highlight of the week was crossing the chains and the scramble up the pointy summit of Pico Anayet.

Fantastic hiking this July in the Pyrenees

We had some spectacular hiking last month both in the Spanish Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa. Here are some photos and comments from our guests from our first couple of holidays this July.

Picos de Europa, July 1st-7th

In the first week of July, we spread our wings for a holiday in the Picos de Europa – a stunning set of mountains on the north coast of Spain. We hiked in the famous Cares Gorge, got high into the peaks using the Fuente De cable car and tasted the strong Cabrales cheese washed down with Asturian cider.

“Just as you think holidays cannot get any better, along comes Hike Pyrenees and all the wonderful and helpful staff!” (Stephen)

“Good walking in spectacular scenery with friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable guides.” (Roger)

Discover Ordesa, July 7th-14th

Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park is a must when you visit the Pyrenees. Different paths from the valley bottom to the highest viewpoints gave us a full perspective of this impressive canyon, but we also made it to the nearby Valle de Bujaruelo with amazing hikes for all levels.
