The Pyrenees are one of the last remaining truly authentic mountain destinations in Europe. From January to March they are transformed into a magical winter wonderland which we're inviting you to explore through snowshoeing excursions led by expert local guides. Snowshoeing is an activity that is open to any outdoors lover and there are options for all abilities, ranging from easy forest tracks to full day mountain excursions. We will tailor your itinerary to the difficulty level that you prefer. During your stay we'll enable you to discover local gastronomic delights and delicious mountain fayre such as garbure, tartiflette, crepes and some simply divine local handmade chocolates. This itinerary also includes visits to the exceptional thermal spa facilities in the area where you will have the option of enjoying treatments such as massages and facials. We can adapt the accommodation options for you if you prefer - there is everything from self-catering properties to B&Bs and 4* hotels available in the area, all personally inspected for quality and facilities.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
