The French Pyrenees is stunningly beautiful region and the hike was extremely well planned and organised by the group leader who also provided a lot information on the nature, history and culture of the region linking to the walks.
In addition to the beautiful landscape and hiking itself, the group leader could explain to us all about flowers, trees and geology as we walked. He also shared with us passionately the historical, cultural, environmental and socio-economic context of the region and it was like a combination of hiking and very interesting lecture on spot.
He provided us with detailed information and map of each walk. He also prepared useful information on restaurants and optional activities for a day off. He was always conscious about well-being of all participants. The leader is originated in the region and he is passionate in sharing with us his love of his native land and culture.
For those who look for more than hiking, this would be an interesting walk as the leader can provide a lot of information linking to the walk (nature, history, culture, etc.)
It is worthwhile to spend a day to visit the town of Toulouse for sightseeing.
Scenery in the Aure area is spectacular. Our Guide (Pierre) was excellent and added a lot to the holiday with local history, flora and fauna.
The mountains and high villages.
this is a very good trip that exceeded my expectations. good hikes, good hotel with little swimming pool, many food options in an interesting town and an excellent leader. did not notice any disturbing construction mentioned in some reviews.
actually it was our leader pierre plus meeting allegedly ferocious pyrenees mountain dogs way up there. more like big puppies.
pierre was one of the best best group leaders i ever had implanting lot of local knowledge about plants, birds and politics. also flipping and adjusting our itinerary when bad weather moved in.
some restaurants are expensive but there are plenty of others, good and reasonable. not good place for vegetarians.
