Current conditions, rules and travel restrictions in Spain

Bars, restaurants and hotels are all open with social distancing and tables spaced well apart.

Masks are compulsory in streets and any indoor places such as shops. You need to wear masks when walking around the villages and when going inside any shops. This is a legal requirement. When out in the mountains there is no need to wear a mask – just use common sense and if you meet other people on the trail, leave room on the path for them to pass.

The AVE trains from Madrid and Barcelona to Zaragoza and buses are running as normal – maybe with slightly fewer trains and buses than usual.

International travel restrictions

Most countries currently have restrictions on travel to Spain. Each countries rules are different so please check your goverments latest advice.

 

Are Hike Pyrenees running holidays this summer?

We are here and able to run holidays, however we realise most of our guests can’t travel to us. If you live in Spain and would like to come hiking with us then just drop us an email. We have put in place appropriate hygiene and distancing protocols as have all of the hotels and restaurants that we work with.

Self guided hiking itineraries

If you live in Spain why not try one of our self guided itineraries? If you are looking to travel in September we’d recommend our Village to Village itinerary in the high Pyrenees – beautiful scenery, hiking and villages throughout. For holidays in October and November take a look at our Villages of the Guara or Passes of Beceite itineraries – both in areas that have perfect weather for autumn or spring hiking.

We also have availability for private guided holidays – just drop us an email if you’d like a quote or some suggestions for itineraries.

I have a summer 2020 holiday booked - what are my options?

Firstly, you should have received an email from us outlining your options – if not let us know.

All of our holidays will be running this summer. However, we totally understand that travel is difficult or impossible from most destinations. You can, therefore, transfer your booking and deposit to any holiday in 2021. We guarantee that all prices will remain the same for next summer. View our 2021 hiking program.

If you have any questions or doubts about your holiday booking please send us an email at info@hikepyrenees.co.uk

I'd like to make a new booking for a 2021 holiday

We are taking new bookings for holidays in 2021. View our dates and prices. Email us at info@hikepyrenees.co.uk to check availability or to ask any questions.

Revised booking conditions for new bookings

For all new bookings made June 15th 2020 onwards, if for any coronavirus related reason your holiday cannot go ahead (whether in 2020 or 2021) we will fully refund any deposit paid.

If you are booking for 2021, you do not need to pay any deposit until the New Year – we will contact you in January to ask for a deposit, giving you a chance to have further assessed the situation before paying your deposit.
