Pyrenees Walking


About Pyrenees Walking

Pyrenees Walking was set up by Chris Pounds in 2002 when he moved to France. Pyrenees Walking has organised and run successful treks for groups as diverse as American businesspeople, adventurous Australian ladies, Scottish Air Cadets, and numerous family groups. We pride ourselves on adapting the treks to the clientele to give maximum satisfaction and a sense of accomplished adventure and memorable days, but without wearing our clients out entirely!
