A hiking ending with a massage in the middle of nowhere, exploring the maze-like alleys of ancient medieval towns, an elegant lunch in a centuries-old Abbé, joining the fisherman for a lovely organic meal in a Spanish vineyard and my favorite of all: a really magical day kayaking across a turquoise blue lake to a literally awesome geological formation which contains old Roman ruins.

Randi HollandWashington, USA

Our time was magical, organization 100%, Staff excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The days in the high country were total heaven. The flowers were beyond belief, carpets of wild Orchids, Gentians, Narcissus and many other varieties. Judith our flower guide was very knowledgeable on flora and fauna as well as the Pyrenean history, its villages, churches, and culture.

This area is an idyllic place for hiking, photography, bird watching or just visiting other medieval villages in the area. There are plenty of signed trails which take you through the stunning countryside, and if you don’t fish, you can still use the rivers for kayaking or canoeing.
