Pyrenees - Snowshoeing and Spa with a local guide.

This guided walking tour takes place in the heart of the snow-covered Pyrenees, between Gavarnie and the Land of Toys, your comfortable hotel is close to a spa station. Just come and relax ! An epicurian stay combined with easy snowshoeing walks in the famous Gavarnie Cirque with panoramic views on the summits over 3000 metres. No need to be an expert to walk with snowshoes,  this being the best way to discover the Pyrenees in winter.

Day 1

Arrival in Lourdes. Transfer and discover your hotel in Luz Saint Sauveur. First warm up walk on the plateau des Lumières.

Day 2

We climb the Aygues Cluses valley in the Neouvielle Massif before arriving on a plateau scattered with frozen lakes and small pine trees. Fox and izard traces everywhere, will we be lucky and possibly observe one of them?

Day 3

Discover the splendid Gavarnie Cirque from the Pailla plateau along with the Espuguettes refuge. Wonderful views on the famous Swan Corridor, its name coming from an Englishman who climbed it for the first time, Mr Swan.

Day 4

A day of contrasts from a beech forest, to sheperds' mountain huts, to the Ouscouaou lake from where the view over Hautacam mountain is marvellous.

Day 5

Above the valley, the majestic Cabaliros peak towers up. We will stroll around its wild small valleys with a view on the torrents called the “gaves”. It is quite frequent to observe Woodgrouses.

Day 6

Back to Gavarnie and its incredible cirque. Walk the Ossoue Valley where we can see the Vignemale, the highest summit of the French Pyrenees (3298 m). Here is where Earl Henry Russel had 7 caves cut out, with 3 above the glacier, and used to invite his friends there to have tea!

Day 7

Departure after breakfast.
