Walking and Cycling tours in France Pyrenees- Guided Hiking from Basque Country to Bearn.

Pyrenees- Guided Hiking from Basque Country to Bearn.

Each year on the first week of July, we walk Eastwards only to have the pleasure of a well-deserved bath in the “Grande Bleue”!

The crossing of the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean Sea is an exceptional physical and human adventure, as well as an incredible diversity in landscapes, nature, mountain wildlife and flora. This is a patchwork of lights, atmospheres and elements. 450 km from West to East, with two opposite shores, one is Atlantic, the other Mediterranean.

No luggage, and free minded, we will catch the Pyrenean spirit, its culture and taste local mountain food! Are you ready?
