Walking in the Spanish Pyrenees is not about the number of km but the height gain and terrain. All our small group activity holidays involve walking/hiking to one degree or another.
We do offer a walking/hiking grade for each of our holidays, this ranges from easy to moderate to challenging. A link on each holiday page will take you to our Guided Walks page where each of these grades are explained.
We recommend a pair of good walking boots for all our holidays. Ideally ones with ankle support to reduce the risk of a sprain or a twist, particularly over rocky terrain.
We always send a kit list specific to each holiday two weeks before your departure date.
