We'll pick you up at Toulouse Airport and bring you back to our guest house in Luchon aka the Queen of the Pyrenees. Once you've dropped your stuff off and had a quick drink we'll head right out for some rock climbing.
There are some fantastic crags surrounding the town and varying grades so we'll find you something perfect for your ability.
We'll be sport climbing (which means there are already bolts in the wall so you don't have to place your own gear, unlike 'trad' climbing) and you'll be top roping (which means if you fall off you won't go anywhere, as opposed to lead climbing) so you don't need to worry about falling and can really go for it. If you want to lead climb though, you can, just let us know.
Your guide is a highly accomplished climbed so will be able to give you some great tips to improve your technique
Today we head well above the treeline into wild alpine scenery. We've got an awesome few days mountain discovery coming up. An early start sees us take an hour long transfer to the Aigüestortes national Park of Spain. We begin by trekking up a vast glacial valley of the Cirque de Colomers and its many sparkling lakes and tarns. Adding colour are dozens of alpine flower species and the loud squeaks of marmots. We make our way north and ascend the Colomers pass (2,400m) to soak up the epic views with hundreds of Pyrenean summits stretching out to the east and west and then descend to the refuge of Ventosi I Cavell which many call the most spectacularly located refuge in the Pyrenees. Through out the day you will have lakes galore for wild swimming and perfect picnic spots for lunch.
(Trekking time 7-8 hours)
After a hearty breakfast at the refuge, we’ll start our trek eastwards towards Pico Montardo, towering 2,833m above the refuge de Restanca. The path takes us from the refuge up to the Crestada pass on the Haute Route, one of the three long distance trails that cross the Pyrenees. From the pass, we head up the ridgeline to the summit of Montardo and outstanding views over the French border and across miles of Pyrenean summits, including its highest – Pico Aneto. After our ascent we climb over the col de Caldes (2,400 meters) and dropping into the Cirque de Travessani. Todays path links with the GR11 and joins what many call the show-case circuit of this area; the seven lake walk. Since we are in no hurry the brave can take on the seven-lake swim challenge (or dip!) and we descend back down to our starting point, Baños de Tredos for our transfer back to France and a fantastic celebration meal.
Trekking Time 8-10 hrs
Tackling steep sections, unexpected switchbacks and wild freerides we soon discover why this crazy sport is fast becoming the number one thrill for adventure junkies. This activity is great for all abilities.
Breathlessly but hugely elated we arrive back into town, grab a shower and transfer back to the airport. It might take a while for your heart to stop racing but this weekend will be long remembered!
It's day 4 and time for mountain biking through this truly awesome mountain range.
We'll start early and catch the gondola up to Superbagneres (about 2,000 meters above sea level) for some killer views. After a few selfies and deep breathes soaking up the mountain air it's time to hit the trails. There's varying levels from absolute beginner to pro. We'll be hitting steep sections, a series of switchbacks and wild freerides.
Another epic day in the bag!
