Who We Were

Jessica Pickard and Simon Greenleaf

Pyrenean Mountain Tours is a small company that was set up by two friends who were captivated by the grandeur of the mountains and the quality of the off piste skiing when they first visited Barèges on a Pyrenees holiday in 1993.

Since then we have explored further afield in the Pyrenees chain and elsewhere, building up the small team of professionals who help to organise the holidays you’ll discover on the website. Today, we offer mountain holidays throughout Europe and beyond, with ski touring, snowshoeing, mountaineering, and all kinds of mountain-related winter activities.

In 2009 we stopped running our summer holidays for individuals and families. After 16 years we reckoned we deserved a bit of downtime in the mountains ourselves! But we were delighted when our colleagues in France, our favourite guides and local hoteliers, decided to fill the gap by forming their own company: Pyrenean Odysseys. This is an independent company offering summer holidays. It is run by local people who share an interest in walking, local history and culture and ecology.

We had masses of good feedback from customers who travelled with them last year so enjoy browsing the site and book your holiday to the Pyrenees.
