September in the French Pyrenees
First time I’d used this type of holiday and was not disappointed. Everything ran on rails from start to finish. The walking was spectacular and the views amazing, even in the snow! Accommodation was spot on with great food and comfortable sleeping arrangements. The maps and route guides made things very easy and still gave you enough latitude to do your own thing at times. As an introduction to using mountain huts and getting up to 3000 metres this adventure was just right. If you wanted to exert yourself a bit more and cover more distance then you would find it rather too easy. Having said that for my daughter and I it gave us time to enjoy the experience of mountain walking and get to know one another a lot more. Already planning our next adventure.
