Covid-19/Coronavirus update and information

We are currently taking bookings for summer 2021 from mid-May onwards. Hopefully, by summer 2021, some normality will have returned to international travel – particularly within Europe. We are making our booking policy as flexible as possible as we understand there are still many uncertainties about travel next summer, particularly long haul. We are therefore making the following guarantees to all of our guests:

No deposit required for 2021 bookings
Reserve your place on any of our holidays with no need to pay a deposit at the moment. When the feasibility of summer travel becomes clearer (hopefully by around April, but that depends on how things evolve over the coming months.), we’ll contact you to confirm your plans and ask for your deposit.

Moneyback guarantee
If for any covid related reason you cannot travel (or just don’t feel comfortable travelling) we will refund any monies you have paid. Applies to all new bookings made after June 2020.

Free changes of dates
No charge to change the dates of your holiday if you need to delay your holiday to later in the season or the following year (subject to availability).

Covid protocols
When our holidays restart, rest assured that Hike Pyrenees, as well as all of the hotels we work with, will follow all of the appropriate protocols to make your holiday as safe as possible.

If you had a booking for summer 2020 that was postponed you can move your booking to any 2021 trip. Once you’re ready with your dates just let us know and we’ll get you booked in.

Here we hope to answer the questions that you have about your summer holiday whether you have an existing Hike Pyrenees booking or are looking to make a booking for 2021.

If you would like more information about any of our holidays or our covid policies then please drop us an email at info@hikepyrenees.co.uk and we’ll be glad to help.

We hope that you are all keeping well and hope that travel soon gets back to normal and we’ll to see you in the Pyrenees in 2021.

Regards,
Phil and the Hike Pyrenees team.

When are Hike Pyrenees holidays starting again?

We are currently taking bookings for mid-May 2020 onwards. We are hoping that some normality will have returned to travel by then, at least within Europe. Understandably, long haul travel will be a bit slower getting going again.

With the uncertainties regarding travel at the moment, we are making our booking policy as flexible as possible with no deposit required, free changes of dates and refunds if your holiday has to be cancelled or you cannot travel for covid related reasons. Please see above for full details of our guarantees to you.

Private guiding

If you live in Spain, you will probably be able to get to the Pyrenees earlier and easier than those from abroad. We will be offering private guiding for either snowshoeing or hiking as soon as travel between the regions has opened up.

Just drop us an email if you’re interested in private guiding and I can email you an itinerary. There is excellent snowshoeing in the area in February and March and visiting the mountains in the winter is a wonderful adventure.

I had 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.

If you had a 2020 booking, you can transfer your booking and deposit to any holiday in 2021 (or 2022 if necessary). 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

Current conditions, rules and travel restrictions in Spain

Rules vary between Cominidades (autonomos communities) so the information below is with regards to Aragon where all of our holidays are based (apart from the Picos de Europa).

Currently in December and January, travel around Spain in between regions is not allowed apart for work and a few other reasons. Even travel with Aragon, between the provinces of Huescas, Zaragoza and Teruel is not allowed.

Bars, restaurants and hotels are allowed to open, albeit with vastly reduced capacities and lots of social distancing. However, due to the travel restrictions a lot of hotels aren’t open as there are no tourists. All of the hotels that I speak to say they will reopen as soon as travel within Aragon is allowed.

Masks are compulsory everywhere in the streets and indoor places such as shops and bars. 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, put your mask back on or leave plemnty of room for them to pass.

International travel restrictions

Spain is currently happy to receive visitors from most of Europe (although this can change at any time so please check the latest info). You need to have had a negative PCR test within 72 hours of travel. No qurantine is needed on arrival as you’ve just had a negative test.

Travel from most non-European countries is currently restricted. However, the rules are different for each coutry so please check the latest goverments advice.
