Overview

Most 360 expeditions are all about adventure and action. But sometimes we just need to give ourselves a bit of time to appreciate the wonders of the world we live in. Our weekend  relaxing in the Pyrenees is a chance to escape and unwind from everyday pressures in the most amazing setting – the peaceful Lac de Bareilles and a nearby luxurious mountain spa.

You’ll be based in the exquisite French town of Bagneres de Luchon, where you can kick back in idyllic tranquillity while we do all the organising. You decide how much you do this weekend, so the ‘itinerary’ is flexible. Friday evening, settle into your comfy guest house then check out the fantastic restaurants on your doorstep. Saturday, explore the Pyrenees with an easy walk in crisp mountain airs. Take a picnic and stretch out on the shores of the mountain lake, accompanied by a friendly guide. Sunday – big choice…Spend the day in a mountain spa OR try a half day’s climbing with a qualified instructor in a stunning setting at the local varied crag in St Mamet, a stone’s throw from Luchon. It’s entirely up to you.

Whatever you go for, two full days in the Pyrenees will leave you rejuvenated and ready for whatever Monday throws at you.
