Guest reviews of Hike Pyrenees
Below is feedback we’ve had from guests on our guided and self guided walking holidays. Thanks to all our guests that have sent feedback – if you’ve not mailed us any comments yet please do and we’ll add them.
We went on an early season guided hike tour with dairly hikes from Biescas. Our expectations were definitely exceeded. We had lots of rain during the week, but Hike Pyrenees adjusted each day’s activity to find the best weather and to meet our interests and abilities. Our guide for the week – Olatz – was outstanding. This is a first-class operation in a beautiful part of Spain. Highly recommended.
Peter & Lisa, Lakes & Valleys, May 2018.
Thanks so much for a brilliant week. Varied and well judged walks with fantastic views and lots of interesting social history, in the form of abandoned villages, between wonderful flowers and endless bird life. Phil and Olatz are both brilliant guides – so knowledgeable about the environment and patient and encouraging when the summit looked a long way off! Relaxed evenings in the historic town of Alquezar with delicious meals in different restaurants were very enjoyable.
Hope to see you again.
Sonia & Fred, Riglos & Alquezar, April 2018.
We had a blast! Walks were of progressive intensity. Breathtaking views all the time and good food at the end of the day. The area makes for a great discovery.

It takes a really special person with unique qualities to be a good guide. Hannah has it all, leadership, experience, she recognize every single person in our group, ignored no one. She put up with all the odd personalities. She is gifted and David is well on his way along this path. Thank you for a great trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our “Lakes and Valleys” week with Hike Pyrenees. This was our first real hiking holiday and we were very impressed with the helpful and patient way the guides – Hannah, Ken and David treated us. Special thanks to Hannah on our first day for preparing us for the week and organising our rucksacks! The guides were very flexible and chose the right hikes for us after initially assessing our capabilities. Our evening with Phil in Jaca was another highlight of the week – tour and historical talk followed by vino and tapas in a festive atmosphere. Our holiday was organised in a very professional manner from the initial booking to the final drive back to Zaragoza airport. We hope to visit the spectacular Pyrenees again with Hike Pyrenees.

Bespoke Itinerary, July 2017.
The Refugio week is the best week of hiking I have ever done. Physically challenging, with an excellent guide, who taught me how to use crampons and an Ice axe for the first time. The highlight was definitely the views from the summit of monte perdido at 3355m.
Neil, Refugio Week, June 2017.
Splendid self-contained accommodation and self guided 2 weeks. Weather could have been better but the company did everything to help with our trip.

Well organised with very helpful and pleasant staff. Other members of the group were very friendly. Thank you for a good holiday. All guides were very good and very patient. The two walk option is an excellent idea. The trip to Jaca with Rosa and Teresa was a nice change. They were excellent hosts both on the history of Jaca and organised a delicious meal for us. We mostly saw Hannah who was excellent and showed us great patience as did all your guides.
Pam & Barry, Valle de Tena Explorer, June 2017.
An absolutely fabulous walking holiday. Each of the high level walks were suitably challenging and sel-fulfilling. Hannah and Ken (the 2 main guides) were superb, never once floundering when bombarded with question after question, after question. I would highly recommend Hike Pyrenees.

We were new to the Pyrenees – this was the perfect way to discover things. Great and varied walks, amazing guides and a fantastic holiday.

Wonderful hiking trip! The hiking was challenging but not too hard. With the early summer schedule, the wild flowers were plentiful. Our hotel accommodations were very good in delightful quaint mountainous villages. We were very pleased with our dining experiences, good variety of food choices, especially dinner at Casa Pelentos, Paco is an amaizing chef. We highly recommend this trip.
Patsy & Will, Village to Village, June 2017.
Hike Pyrenees Village to Village week was a fabulous introduction to an exquisite, remote and very interesting part of the world that few seem to have discovered. The wild flowers would make botanist and any explorer – extraordinary!
Village to Village, May 2017.
Hiking the Pyrenees is fantastic and the entire trip was superbly organized. Highly recommendable, one of the best vacation we´ve ever had. A superb sense of achievement.
Christine & Michael, Village to Village, May 2017.
Everything was organised so well, that we could walk care-free and enjoy the stunning scenery. The spring flowers we saw, were stunning in variety and we saw so many orchids and even vultures. The quality of service was really high fron everyone who looked after us.
Rachel & Guy, Village to Village, May 2017.
Helen and I had an excellent time in the Tena and Ordesa valleys on the guided Lakes and Valleys flowers week. Our guides, Hannah, Orlatz and Ken, made the trip most enjoyable with their knowledge and enthusiasm for the local flora. Thank you to all of you, including Rosa, Teresa and Anna back in the office in Biescas, for making everything work so smoothly. The weather was a little cooler and occasionally rainier than is perhaps usual for this time of year – but it made for excellent hiking – and the orchids were beautiful.
Helen & Steve, Lakes & Valleys, May 2017.
Our Wild Flower Walking holiday was extremely enjoyable.The specialist guide was extremely knowledgable and the Hike Pyrenees guides were also very knowledgable about the wild flowers, other wild life and geology.

Netzer family, Village to Village, October 2016
Hooray! At last we have found the perfect balance of self-leading but with excellent back-up and support. Each day’s walking was challenging but not beyond our limits. Route sheets straightforward, easy to follow and gentler options if needed. Thank you for a fabulous holiday.
Jan & Lee, Village to Village, October 2016
The Valle de Tena is one of the best trekking place in the world. The variety of scenery and lack of people make it outstanding. Our hotels were comfortable, very clean and friendly. Our guides, Ken and Hannah were excellent and we all felt very confident of their ability.

As a repeat client on Peaks & Passes, I was delighted that Phil was able to offer additional excellent hikes on top of previous year. Great flexibility.
Ronan, Peaks & Passes, September 2016
Hike Pyrenees looked after us very well: the amount of their involvement can be as much or as little as one wants. We followed the Village to Village self-guided itinerary; all arrangements went exactly as planned, the daily itineraries and map provided were excellent as were all the hotels and meals provided. As they based in the area, Hike Pyrenees appear to have built very good relationships with the hotels en route and to have excellent local knowledge.
Stephen & Stephanie, Village to Village, September 2016
Overall it was just great. Highlights were the great hikes, Maria Jose and her lovely hotel in Sallent, dinner at Cafe Navarro in Panticosa, and the Faja de Pelay walk in Ordesa. The villages were all lovely and all the hotels were very nice.
Jan, Village to Village, September 2016
We had a truly enjoyable hike: good treks, good food, good hotels (and a good company of course).

Great opportunity to see a small part of Spain, been wanting to visit the Pyrenees. Everything was taken care of, you just show up and start hiking. Fantastic views.
David, Village to Village, August 2016
Excellent family holiday – all ran seamlessly and was very well organised with friendly hotel owners, spectacular scenery and easy to follow routes. Recommend the public swimming pool in Panticosa which is newly renovated and has stunning mountain views.
Coleman family, Village to Village, August 2016
We were a little apprehensive about walking in the heat of summer and unsure if, with almost 240 years between them, our four legs could still take the strain! But we were able to choose walks that suited us and we hugely enjoyed the fantastic scenery that they took us through. We thought the wild flowers would be mostly over by August but found ourselves walking through meadows full of sea holly buzzing with crickets and butterflies. Another bonus was seeing just how many Spanish families with young children were out on the hills and clearly enjoying their walking as much as we do. Overall, we had a great holiday at both Sallent and Ordesa.
Jean & Martin, Bespoke Itinerary, August 2016
We had a fabulous holiday. Everything was well organised, friendly and professional staff. Easy to follow route directions through stunning mountain scenery!
Anne & Tony, Village to Village, August 2016
An incredible experience of beautiful Pyrenees, well organised, authentic taste of Spain, adventurous, stunning Alpine meadows and mountain scenery wildlife, lovely hotels and food. Ideal hiking.

Kathy & Peter, Self guided Torla, July 2016
We had a great week on the self-guided Village to Village walk. The information provided was detailed accurate, making the walking easy. Every walking day was different, exciting and challenging but within our comfort zone. Accommodation, food and towns we stayed in were all very good. The views, paths, flowers, birds were all fantastic. We have walked Camino, west highland way and tour du Mont Blanc but would have no hesitation in recommending this as a wonderful week’s walking.
Bev & Malcom, Village to Village, July 2016

Big THANKS to Phil and rest of Hike Pyrenees team for a fantastic walking holiday, quite possibly the best we’ve ever had.

Hans and Margie, Village to Village, October 2015
The Valle de Tena is spectacular! Every day the self-guided walking directions were clear and precise, which meant each person in our group of 7 could decide which route they wanted to do. It was great fun meeting up back at the hotel each evening and comparing stories! We really felt like we got to know the Valle, especially when we stood at the top of the Punta del Pacino and could see everywhere we’d been!
Clare, Village to Village, September 2015
The hiking and the scenery were incredible – a perfect mix of terrain. And Hike Pyrenees picks the best accommodations and meals for the end of each day. Highly recommend!!
Ruth, Village to Village, September 2015
Hike Pyrenees was very responsive to unexpected issues. The routes were well marked and easy to follow. A wonderful adventure in the Pyrenees.
Judi and Jeri, Village to Village, September 2015
There was a hike for all experience levels. If you needed anything Phil was able to help. Highly recommend this if it’s your first trip to the beautiful Pyrenees.
David Hull and Montana group, Village to Village, September 2015
We would have no hesitation recommending Hike Pyrenees for a holiday. Phil and Anna’s professionalism was excellent. Any queries we emailed from Australia about our trip were answered immediately. The notes, accommodation and meals were all excellent.
Robyn, Angelika, Jill and Evelyn, Village to Village, September 2015
We had a great holiday!Thank you so much for all the effort you put in to make our stay in the Pyrenees special. The hotel – food and accommodation – was excellent. The walks and guiding superb. A special thank you to Phil, Hannah and Ken for all their helpful and interesting input. Nothing was too much trouble. This was our second holiday with Hike Pyrenees and we hope to come again soon.
Angela and Keith, Discover Ordesa, September 2015
Our vacation with Hike Pyrenees walking the Camino del Norte was simply superlative. The scenery, variety of terrain, the historical sites and the people we met along the way made the experience unforgettable. Javier is remarkable: energetic, attentive, always accessible and caring.
Franck, Camino de Santiago, September 2015
Wonderful countryside, excellent guides, superb hotel, delicious meals. All in all an excellent holiday. No complains, only compliments.
Christine, Valle de Tena Explorer, September 2015
No matter where you look, breath taking views. We really enjoyed also the sound of running water be it from the numerous waterfalls or rivers. We’ll be back.
Marisol and Nicholas, Self guided Torla, September 2015
The guides were outstanding – thoughtful, fun and willing to tailor each day to our specific desires and abilities. We had a blast!

This was our first guided walking holiday and we will definitely return. I would recommend Hike Pyrenees to anyone without any hesitation.
Steve and Diane, Discover Ordesa, September 2015
Our hike over col de los Musales would be in our top 5 of all time, including Himalayas, Alps, etc.
John and Trisram, Village to Village, September 2015
Hike Pyrenees provides an incredible hiking experience at an individual and group level. You will love Phil and his team and the Pyrenees! Van and Carrie, Valle de Tena Explorer, September 2015
Van and Carrie, Valle de Tena Explorer, September 2015
Great value and would recommend it without hesitation. Ken, Hannah and Phil made it a wonderful holiday and had loads of knowledge to share on geology, botany, history and much more. The Pyrenees are beautiful. Can’t wait to come back. Anna makes the best trail mix ever!
Jan, Valle de Tena Explorer, September 2015
Spectacular scenery, great guides and walks, every aspect well organized. Also had opportunity to learn some local history. The perfect package!
Isabel and Drew, Bespoke Itinerary, September 2015
Hikes were great, Pyrenees spectacular, excellent value for all. Having done many hiking trips, the staff, especially the guides and owner, were among the very best we have travelled with.
Carolyn and Bill, Bespoke Itinerary, September 2015
Great, active trip away! Phil is a very good guide and we have had lots. It was a great experience and it is certainly something we would like to do again.

A beautiful area for a walking holiday and all very well organised.

Ronan, Peaks & Passes, August 2015
Absolutely an excellent holiday package.
Randy and Sherrie, Lakes & Valleys, August 2015
Really interesting and scenic walking with a variety of lovely overnight stays. Advise learning some Spanish as not all English speakers.
Val, Camino de Santiago, July 2015
I enjoyed my week’s walking. It was great. Looking closely at the map when I got home I was surprised to discover how close we were to the Greenwich Meridian. It cuts across the Ordesa valley about one quarter of the way down from the top. We crossed it several times during our various outings. When my friends ask me where Ordesa is this provides a very easy location hint.
Karl, Discover Ordesa, July 2015
I highly recommend Hike Pyrenees for a guided or non-guided hiking experience of the Spanish Pyrenees. Our accommodations and food was great. We got personal assistance from beginning to end of our vacations. We would go back in the future. Thanks.
Adrienne and Keenan, Village to Village, July 2015
The level of planning done by Phil and Anna to give us a such lovely week in the mountains is beyond compare. Great hikes, delightful hotels and wonderful food to accompany amazing scenery!
Ann and Mike, Village to Village, July 2015
Hannah, Ken and Phil looked after our every need. I would certainly recommend Hike Pyrenees.
Jenny, Discover Ordesa, July 2015
Fourth Hike Pyrenees Holiday, and the same winning combination of friendly, efficient walk guides and stunning scenery. And loads of lammergeiers!
Richar, Discover Ordesa, July 2015
Hike Pyrenees gives access to the most unspoilt and dramatic mountains in Europe through the best tailored guiding. The challenges on offer ensure everyone can have the most happy and memorable time!
Mark, Discover Ordesa, July 2015
Had an amazing time, thank you. Wish you the best for the future and hopefully see you again soon.
Charlotte, Discover Ordesa, July 2015
Great walking holiday with owners/ organizers/ guides paying great attention to detail at every level.
Rosemary, Discover Ordesa, July 2015
Fabulous variation in the walks for both high and low levels. We feel Hike Pyrenees had researched all the walks to give the most enjoyable experience. Great week!
India and Jackie, Discover Ordesa, July 2015
Great mixture of hard work in the day and relaxing evenings. Each day’s route was so different you never knew what to expect – all walks stunning.
Mike and Sarah, Village to Village, July 2015
Self guided was definitely the best option for us. But Phil had great local knowledge and was always available/ contactable to advise and assist. Great adventure!
Alan and Judith, Self guided Biescas, July 2015
The experience was everything and more than I had anticipated. Stunning walks, scenery, weather and food. As a solo self guided walker Anna and Phil were always to hand if needed. Ken talked me through the walk on arrival which was very helpful.
Mark, Self guided Biescas, July 2015
Enjoyed every moment of this adventure. Fun helpful accommodating guides, wonderful hotel staff and delicious meals, and sensational hikes/ weather/ wild flowers/ scenery – a 10/10!!
Nancy, Village to Village, June 2015
I loved hiking in the Pyrenees and discovering a new part of the world. The guides were very knowledgeable and accommodation – appreciate Hannah stopping in the cloud burst to see the lady slippers orchid.:)
Janet, Lakes & Valleys, June 2015
Village to Village is a fantastic way to see a varied and interesting small part of the vast Spanish Pyrenees, well organized and well-worth a return trip.
Kevin, Janet, Janet and Martin, Village to Village, June 2015
It was a wonderful holiday, well organised and efficiently run. The walks were spectacular and the countryside was stunning – so many flowers, butterflies and birds. A lovely unspoilt part of Spain.
Ruth, Village to Village, June 2015
The sun showed as we hiked through meadows full of flowers, raptors over head accompanied by birdsong in the trees. Restful overnight stops with excellent organisation and supports.
Christine and Alex, Village to Village, June 2015
Fantastic scenery with good directions for the self-guided walk, allowing us to set our own pace and really enjoy the walk and the wild flowers.
David and Solveig, Village to Village, June 2015
‘Self guided’ doesn’t really do it justice as not only were we met at the start and end of our trip, the quality of the planning meant there was always the sense of an invisible guide along the way. The ‘just right’ choice of friendly hotels in the more interesting villages, the excellent pack lunches, the choice of a harder or easier option on most days, a lift to the start of one walk to make the most interesting harder walk achievable in a day, and even notes on the local flora and fauna … together these all produced the best of both worlds with the simplicity of having a guided tour but still the freedom and flexibility of setting your own schedule. A fantastic trip.
Martine and Phil, Village to Village, June 2015
We absolutely loved our Hike Pyrenees holiday. Everything was better than promised. Phil was always available for questions or whatever we needed. We’ll be back!
Catherine and Brenda, Village to Village, June 2015
A very enjoyable holiday with excellent guides Hannah, Ken and Phil. Spectacular scenery. Michael, Valle de Tena Explorer, June 2015
Michael, Valle de Tena Explorer, June 2015
My fourth holiday with Hike Pyrenees and I’m still making new discoveries. I always feel very safe and in good company with Phil, Ken and Hannah and a great deal of effort is put into making sure I have a varied and enjoyable holiday.
Sarah, Valle de Tena Explorer, June 2015
We had a really good holiday, everything was well organised and the walks and the scenery were excellent. Very friendly company and a great range of walks to suit all levels. We would definitely return through Hike Pyrenees.
Doug and Sheila, Village to Village, June 2015
One of the best weeks ever. Excellent track notes, maps and suggestions; lovely hotels, hosts and breakfasts/ lunches; comforting back-up available if needed, especially on longer days.
Diane and Alan, Camino de Santiago, June 2015
A really well organised and enjoyable holiday. So I am recommending Hike Pyrenees to family and friends.
Janet, Village to Village, June 2015
Great combination of beautiful mountain scenery, good exercise, companionship and food. Both information pre-arrival and organization was first class.
David and Judi, Village to Village, June 2015
Our 17-day hiking adventure with Hike Pyrenees through the Basque country and high Pyrenees of Aragon was really much more than a walk in the wilderness. The variety and beauty of the country we saw made us look forward to what every new day would bring. Whether picturesque walks taking us to rolling hills above the Bay of Biscay and through coastal villages or strenuous hikes high up in the alpine zone of the Pyrenees, our guides led us on well thought out routes that maximized the pleasure of our experience. In addition to being close to good hiking, our four different lodging locations served as great social bases where we were able to enjoy the rest of our group as Hike Pyrenees guided our exploration of the local culture and cuisine, to include the sharing of a few libation’s (as well as ample laughter!).
Jim and Dianne, Bespoke Itinerary, June 2015
We really enjoyed all the walks, but particularly the ridge walks in the second part of the week. The first hotel was really excellent while the second one was fine for us but I think we got the best bedroom. You may have had some comments about walking off piste one day in the second half which seemed to bother some of the group. Just to say that it was no problem as far as we were concerned.
Liz and Tony, Bespoke Itinerary, June 2015
A very well organised hike in stunning scenery with comfortable and friendly hotels each night. Would recommend to anyone who wants enjoyable hiking with a bit of luxury and no heavy rucksacks!
Andrea and Peter, Village to Village, June 2015
We came here not knowing what to expect and you gave us a once in a life time experience. Every detail was taken care of so we could just enjoy the Pyrenees. Thank you!
Bruce and Katherine, Riglos & Alquezar, May 2015
Riglos and Alquezar are totally underrated walking areas of Spain and should be experienced, especially with Hike Pyrenees who gave us a wonderful weeks walking and entertainment. The flora & fauna, the hotels, the food, the walks were all first class and could not be faulted and exceeded by far any other trip we have experienced elsewhere. Phil’s knowledge, enthusiasm, interest and sense of humour in all aspects of the trip were outstanding. There is no doubt whatsoever that we will be taking part in further trips with this excellent company.
Terry and Kathy, Riglos & Alquezar, May 2015
Village to Village self guided – what a fun fulfilling experience. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the beautiful Valle de Tena, “under our own steam”, knowing that Phil and his team had all logistics in hand. Accommodation, meals, transport of gear and trail notes are extremely well done.
Jo and Peter, Village to Village, May 2015
Very well organised from start to finish, particularly helpful booking and assisting with bus connections. Notes on walks very helpful and extremely accurate. Fantastic flora to be seen over the week. Routes well thought out to give excellent variation. Staff great.
Sheila and Michael, Village to Village, May 2015
We did not have a lot of expectations about the Pyrenees. We were really impressed with the beauty of it all. Being here in late May was perfect for all the wild flowers. Very well organized by the Company, comfortable hotels and good food. We did the self guided Village to Village four – really recommend it for people who are good hikers and in a good shape. It was fantastic!
Larry and Tom, Village to Village, May 2015
A unique experience for us. We had a great time. The scenery and the weather were spectacular. Everything was well organized and all staff and hotels were excellent.
Joan and Kevin, Village to Village, May 2015
If you’ve never walked in the Pyrenees, this is a good way to start. The scenery is stunning, you’ll be well looked after by Hike Pyrenees and it’s excellent value for money.
Andy, Eric, Ken, Rowan and Terry, Village to Village, May 2015
Thanks so much Phil for a wonderful trip. Our Village to Village hikes took us through some spectacular scenery and lovely villages.
Keith, Kathryn, Bill and Mary, Village to Village, May 2015
A beautiful journey through the Basque Country with stunning views and warm welcomes from all the people we met on both the walk and overnight stays.
Rod, Camino de Santiago, May 2015
Fabulous! Enjoyed every single minute. Phil was so helpful and knowledgeable, it really made the holiday. We will be back!!
Malanie and Ian, Riglos & Alquezar, May 2015
We very much enjoyed our time here!
