Sweeping canyons and soaring vultures; wildflower meadows and pine forests lush from the roots up. If the high mountains are calling, there's no one who knows them better.

River rafting is a great way to get the pulse racing

Active summer holidays

July and August

It’s not until you slide into the heart of July and into August that the temperatures can tick up towards the high 20s during the day.

Compared to much of the rest of Spain, this is positively pleasant and provides lovely conditions for an active summer break that has you splashing in and out of the water and finding the freshest air on the higher trails.

The rain and snow of the winter months is a true gift for the sunny southern slopes of the Pyrenees come summertime. We have many ways that you can enjoy the waterways, from a cooling dip in the river after a good day’s hiking to a peaceful paddle through the quiet waters of the Mediano reservoir and into the flooded church tower of the old village.

If you want something more thrilling, you can jump in a raft to navigate the rapids of the Esera river or trust one of our excellent local guides to take you down a canyon. This activity is like a natural water park, with different levels to suit everyone as you follow the water down the mountain in a safe and fun way.

If you want to add on a bit of beach time post-Pyrenees, then the green hills and golden sands of the Basque Country are closeby and make for an appealing way to relax and slow down before returning home.
