Wildlife walks in the Pyrenees

If you are looking for wonderful wildlife walks the Pyrenees remain one of Europe’s last great unspoiled areas and a paradise for nature lovers. There is an astounding richness of birds, flowers, and butterflies to be discovered, particularly in our area of the French Pyrenees, so let us be your guides. We will point you in the right direction whether on a guided walk or if you prefer to explore independently.  All to be enjoyed in a magnificent mountain setting!

We have been offering wildlife holidays in the French Pyrenees since 1987, as we live here permanently so our wealth of local experience tells us exactly where to go, whatever the season.

Each week we offer a programme of gentle wildlife walks. Knowing the area so well, we can combine the very best scenery with the very best spots for wildlife.

The emphasis is on observation and photography. Spectacular scenery and superb wildlife are guaranteed.

We choose each location for the wealth and variety of the plant life to be found. We also explain the astonishing variety of butterflies we will encounter and keep a watchful eye on the birds.

If you wish to explore independently, you can stay in one of our comfortable apartments or a hotel in Barèges. There is superb wildlife is on your doorstep, we will give you lots of advice and our field notes to visit all the best places, and you always join us on a guided day outing or two …

In general, late May to the end of July are the best times to see wildlife. But there is something to see whatever the month.

Do, please, contact us personally. We will be happy to offer detailed information, send species lists and offer lots of good advice.
