Trails for walking in the Pyrénées in complete freedom
Each outing is a journey that fills you with a breathtaking sense of freedom and where anything can happen! What drives us to go climbing in the mountains is the desire to (re)discover this peace of mind that washes over us, this sense of living life to the full and this inner well-being that awakens in us the joy of finding others … and ourselves!
No two outings are ever the same. Awaken your senses and the mountain has a whole host of surprises and encounters in store!
On both sides of the Tourmalet pass
All sorts of symbolic species of Pyrenean fauna and flora can be found right across the Col du Tourmalet pass, including the Pyrenean lily, bearded vulture, Pyrenean chamois and marmots…
In the summer, the queens of the mountain
Cows and ewes rule the mountainside as they graze in their summer pastures. At Tourmalet, you might even catch sight of some llamas if you’re lucky!
Breeders and shepherds are never far away
Livestock farmers, cowherds and shepherds are never far away, with their faithful patous, Great Pyrenees mountain dogs.
Don’t be surprised if you come across them on your walk.
If you’d like to, by all means exchange greetings with these custodians of the Pyrenees, and end with a “Adishatz!”, which is always greatly appreciated. That’s unless you pass some walkers en route for Santiago de Compostela instead ?
My most beautiful hikes
If you’re itching to venture off the beaten track, then why not call on a mountain guide to show you the Pyrenees in a different light, in complete safety.
