During the winter season the Pyrenees are covered by the snow, but many people, looking for their shot of adrenalin, rush straight up to the ski resorts. The wilder areas then become silent and calm, and the snowy valleys and hills are sublimated by the sun sparkling upon their white mantle.
Fortunately, these wild valleys are still accessible to hikers in search of freedom, fresh air and open spaces. On snowshoes that will allow you to progress easily in this potentially hostile environment, I will guide you to the little corners of paradise that the Pyrenees conceal in winter.
Accessible to people of all ages and physical fitness levels, a snowshoe hike will allow you to enjoy the soft and delicious scrunching of snow under your feet. Beginners will benefit from expert advice that will allow you to progress, and then I will guide the group safely up over peaks and passes that will provide you with absolutely stunning views of the Pyrenees.
In winter, it is important to protect yourself from the cold, snow and wind. It is recommended to adopt a "onion" type system by superimposing several thin layers. This will allow you to adjust your body temperature according to climatic conditions.
