Tour Overview

The Pyrenees in high summer

The Pyrenean adventure will be based at the camping St Justin, at the northern edge of the Pyrenees National Park. The itinerary includes a number of nights in refuges, higher in the mountains. Each refuge is accessible by road for logistic support or in case of emergencies, and as always there is some flexibility with the itinerary, giving staff and guides the choice to make each day adaptable to the weather conditions and the needs of the group.
