Pyrenees guided walking holidays

Our guided walking holidays show you the best the region has to offer. We organise routes, accommodation, meals and transport leaving you free to relax and enjoy your holiday.

With our intimate knowledge of the area we take you straight to the most beautiful spots, many of which are off the beaten track and often we’ll have the mountains to ourselves.

Living in the Pyrenees year round means we have lots of local contacts that make our holidays really special. You’ll discover the real Pyrenees and our holidasy include lots of extra’s such as dining in excellent local restaurants, history and cultural tours, wine tastings and local fiestas.

Our guided tours are all graded so that you can choose either a gentle or strenuous holiday to suit your level of fitness. On our dual level holidays you can choose from an easy or harder option each day and these are a very popular option. We specialise in small group holidays – you won’t be trudging along in a long line of people on any of our holidays.

We’re passionate about the area and love showing people the best there is to see – our enthusiasm for the Pyrenees is clear to all our guests! We know the region’s history, its stories, wildlife and of course all the best walks.

Let our team of qualified guides show you how spectacular and special the Pyrenees are and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with them like we did!

This was our first experience of a guided walking holiday and it will not be our last. Everything was excellent, hotels, transport, walking and local information. Despite a week of unsettled weather predictions, our guides took time and care to plan our routes so we didn’t have raincoats on all week.

David & Jennifer

Picos de Europa, July 2018

Good combination of walks, hard days but rewarding (Climbing Monte Perdido  with crampons was a challenge). Stunning scenery and great photographic opportunities. Good mix of beautifully located mountain huts and luxury hotel with swimming pool. What more could keen hiker wish for?  Thank you HikePyreenes for memorable week.
