Self guided walking in the Pyrenees

Self guided walks with Collett’s unrivalled local knowledge

Be as independent as you wish with the help of our superb Ideas and Information files
Ramble through wildflower pastures or trek in the high remote mountain wilderness of the stunning French and Spanish Pyrenees

For people who prefer to be independent and do their own thing, we have plenty of local knowledge on many high and medium level walks, mountain bike routes, scenic drives, other mountain activities and local places of interest. All of this is available for you to browse through in our Ideas & Information files. Simply drop into Office Hour, which is held every evening (except Wednesdays, our day off) in the relaxed sociable surroundings of Hotel Sabocos, where the local knowledge of our Walk Organisers is always at hand.

All of the information provided in our Ideas & Information files is available for you to borrow, in the form of easy to carry Route Laminates. These include an accurate route description together with useful information such as average walking time, total ascent and distance as well as the relevant section of the map. Whilst these should not be treated as definitive guides, they can prove invaluable when used in conjunction with the local walking map we will send you shortly before you depart for the Pyrenees.

We fully understand if you would prefer to be left to your own devices and we can provide you with whatever information you need to create a succession of enjoyable days out. Obviously if you would prefer to join our Organised Walks then that’s absolutely fine with us too – we are happy for you to ‘mix and match’, doing your own thing one day and joining an Organised Walk the next. Our unique format enables you to do as much or as little as you like.

Whatever you need, however we can help – for example you might want to check the weather forecast, need some help planning a route, or are simply looking for some tips on where to find the best wildflowers – simply drop into Office Hour and have a chat.

We also offer self guided walking holidays in the Italian Dolomites and the Picos de Europa.

At your own risk

You join our organised itineraries and make use of our ideas & information at your own risk. It is important that you understand that whilst our own walkers have substantial local knowledge and are familiar with the routes which our organised walks follow, they are not qualified mountain guides.
