Our Walking Holidays in the Pyrenees
Western Europe’s last great mountain wilderness?
- Enjoy organised or self guided walking – or a mix of both
- High Level Walking & Moderate Walking
- Walking on both the Spanish and the French sides
- Arrive and depart on the days of your choice – stay for as long as you wish
- A delightful three star hotel and a choice of catering apartments
A mountain holiday with flexibility throughout
On a Collett’s summer walking holiday in the Pyrenees, you arrive on the day you choose and stay for as long as you wish in the stunningly located mountain village of Panticosa at our delightful three star hotel or in one of our self catering apartments. Every day – except Wednesdays – you can join one of two breathtaking walks, both free and optional. One is a high level harder hike, the other a moderate walk, rich in flora, fauna and beautiful scenery.
You can also do self-guided walks of any grade – or we can propose other days out and places of interest in this beautiful mountain location just over Spain’s border with France. Simply choose day to day the option that takes your fancy. Plan your days at Office Hour over maps and a relaxed pre-dinner drink with our own walkers and hosts, whose extensive local knowledge will ensure you get just what you want from your time here.

The Collett's team were fantastic - very confident, considerate and helpful. A really good flag to be waving for employing your people.
I understand that walking to the slowest pace is important but when some members of the group have another agenda - ie flower spotting, they perhaps needed a bit of chivying along for the sake of the rest of the group.
