On your own or with one of our guides...
With or without the transport of your luggage...
Beginner or experienced walker... 

At Respyrénées, we are flexible and adaptable!

We explain everything here ⬇

Self-guided walking tours

You travel with whoever you want, whenever you want and we take care of the organisation! With the help of maps, GPS tracks and a topo-guide provided before your departure, you will walk routes without the need for a guide.

You are free to choose a departure date and walk at your own pace without the constraints of a group. We take care of booking your accommodation, luggage transport and any transfers you may need. You can hike the whole of your itinerary with a light bag, according to your wishes and in complete autonomy!

Self-guided cycling tours

The principle is the same as the self-guided walking tours, but with the added bonus of cycling!

We take care of booking your bike (mountain bike, hydrid bike, road bike, e-bike...) as well as the essential accessories (helmets, panniers, etc...) and have them delivered to your first accommodation.

You can also choose to ride your own bike.

Guided walking and cycling tours

With a walking pace and a rhythm adapted to the group, you will enjoy walking in the middle of nature!

In groups of 4 to 14 people, you will be guided by a Pyrenean Mountain guide, a specialist in the area you are visiting.

He will take care to help you discover the places and landscapes visited in a friendly atmosphere by sharing his passion and his knowledge of the natural, cultural and historical heritage... The organization of the trip is also provided, including the booking of accommodation, meals and luggage transport.
