Summer update and 2021 walking holiday dates

We hope that all our readers, guests and friends are keeping well in these difficult times.

We’ve published our 2021 walking holiday dates for people that are wanting/needing to rearrange their holidays booked for this summer. We’re determined to make our holidays extra special next year to help make up for the disappointment of missing the mountains this summer.

Spain is gradually coming out of lockdown and in Biescas bars and cafe’s are now open, albeit with reduced capacity and lots of social distancing measures. We’re allowed back into the mountains now which is great news. Hotels can already open, but most in the area are re-opening at the end of June when there will be more demand.

We’re determined to restart our holidays as soon as is practically possible. We can’t say exactly when this will be as everything is very fluid at the moment, but we’re working on higiene and distancing protocols to ensure that we can run our holidays safely.

I’m hoping that we’ll be able to run holidays in August and September. However, we totally understand that although some people will be wanting to holiday as soon as possible, others won’t feel happy travelling then – particularly if are travelling long haul to be here. Everyone’s attitudes and circumstances are a bit different so make the decision about your holiday that you feel most comfortable with.

Anyone with a booking this year can postpone their holidays to next year and we guarantee the price will remain the same and we’ll transfer your deposits across to your new booking. If you’re not ready to confirm your plans yet, no problem – just let us know when you ready.

In addition, if travel this autumn looks sensible we will add an extra Riglos & Alquezar holiday later in October when teh weather there is perfect for hiking.

If you’ve not got a booking, but are still looking to holiday either later this season or for 2021, then you can book with no deposit required until January 2021. That gives you a chance to hold your place on next years trip but wait and see how travel evolves this summer before committing.

Any questions at all then please drop us an email at info@hikepyrenees.co.uk

Keep safe and we look forward to seeing you in the Pyrenees as soon as possible,

    Thanks HP for lightening up my day with your beautiful pictures. Our thoughts with you as you start up your business again, I hope you can get as close to normal as possible ASAP. We are still in lockdown in Cape Town but next week we can exercise 8 hours in the day which is an improvement from 3 hours. But still no mountains, beaches or national parks so we dream of the Pyrenees!

    All the best, Colin

Family hike to Refugio Goriz

In the last week of the summer holidays, we had a family hiking trip up to Refugio Goriz in the Ordesa National Park where we camped for the night. Isabel and Christopher are only 9 and 6 so we cheated slightly and took the Ordesa 4x4 taxi up to Punta Acuta. From...

Another fantastic hike with Juanma. This time we explored the area of Bujaruelo, crossing over into France for views of the Cirque de Gavarnie before tackling the spectacular border ridge and the spiky peak of Gabiet at 2716 metres. We started at the Refugio of San...

A night on a three thousand metre summit

Last week, Juanma and I had an adventure in the Ordesa National Park and bivvied on the summit of the three thousand metre Punta de las Olas. It was by far the highest I've ever bivvied and I have to admit to a little nervousness about being that high up without a...
