OVERVIEW

The Pyrenees is the perfect place for a short, affordable winter challenge - and if you can trek, you can snowshoe - and it gives access to stunning landscapes that are out of reach if you're in boots! Our fantastic trip takes the very best route through a stunning area of frozen lakes and mountains. It’s a winter challenge that showcases the best of this beautiful region.

This 5 day trip has it all- pretty Pyrenean towns and villages, frozen lakes, snow clad peaks, enchanted wintery forests and 2 nights in a remote mountain refuge!

THE ADVENTURE

The Pyrenees Snowshoe challenge showcases and highlights the stunning 1000 Lakes region and features a snowshoe adventure which traverses alpine cirques, crosses high passes and weaves around its many lakes. You'll get some ecpert tuition in montain techniques & safety.

Two nights are spent in a remote and picturesque mountain refuge where we can take in incredible sunsets and wake up to a truly magical sunrise.

5 Day Adventure – UK to UK

We transfer from Toulouse to the pretty Pyrenean town of Luchon, our comfortable base before and after the 3 day snowshoeing trek. Our snowshoe challenge takes us to the 1000 Lakes region, which we explore over the course of a 3 day journey whilst staying in a remote mountain refuge!

3 Day Snowshoe trek

This challenge includes a 3 day snow-shoe adventure which traverses alpine cirques, crosses high passes and weaves around its many lakes. You’ll access a remote and quiet frozen high mountain paradise that so few get to experience!

2 Nights in the mountains

We spend 2 nights in the stunning Refuge de Colomers surrounded by the most spectacular frozen and snow covered terrain. Perfect for watching sunsets, sunrises and late night star gazing.

Full support

Consistent across all of our challenges, you’ll be supported every step of the way by your Action Challenge Leader, your UK medic and local qualified instructors. Throughout the challenge the in-country team keep in regular contact with the UK office. As well as that you’ll have access to the challenge specific app.

For you, your team, or for charity

The challenge is fine for all levels of athletic ability – and you can join as an individual and meet up with others, or as a team of friends or work colleagues and make it a group adventure to remember. You can self fund – just like a holiday – or support a charity of your choice. There’s a ‘land only’ option if you want to organise your flight or maybe to stay in France for extra days.

THE DETAILS

This short haul, action packed winter challenge gives you the chance to experience the peace, tranquillity and beauty of the winter mountains. All whilst staying in comfortable accommodation, eating great food and being supported every step of the way. You’ll also learn and master a new skill - snowshoeing for 3 days through pristine wilderness with incredible views!
