Holidays in the Pyrenees, France

The Pyrenees are an excellent holiday destination for those wanting to discover some of Europe's most dramatic mountains and explore traditional towns and villages. The region has a whole host of activities on offer throughout the year. In winter pick up a pair of snowshoes and experience the snow-drenched mountains in a peaceful, winter wonderland setting. The region is also home to excellent ski facilities and cross-country skiing tracks. In summer, the snow melts and the Pyrenees become an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise.

The famous Camino de Santiago starts in the foothills of the Pyrenees, just one of the many excellent walking routes over the mountain range. For those of you interested in road cycling, these mountains contain some of the highest cols in Europe, as witnessed by the Tour de France every year. Mountain biking is also popular in this region, since it is easy to find remote tracks and paths in both the foothills and the mountains. See below for stacks of green holiday options.
