Staying in Hotel Les Templiers, or in a self catering apartment, our mountain activity week is an ‘a la carte’ affair where you choose the activities you’d like and when you’d like to do them. White-water rafting, a high ropes course in the trees, mountain downhill scooter, via-ferrata, canyoning, a full day out trekking up high, paragliding, bungy jumping, horse riding and caving are all available and we do the bookings for you.  Keep those teenagers occupied and challenged (and you too!).  Best for over 12 years old.

Pyrenean Adventures

Using our own, and visiting friend’s children as guinea pigs, we have discovered the wealth of things there are to do in the Luz and Argeles valleys with children (12 and under). Of course they can do some of the more adventurous activities, but there are plenty of free or inexpensive, and fun activities to get everyone out and about each day – the swimming pool, trampolines with harnesses, the castle ruins, high ropes course, swimming hole in the river, tennis courts, mountain lakes and streams, farms to visit, honey and cheese to taste. Rent an apartment in the centre of Luz and we’ll help you organise activities to suit along with information on short walks suitable for children (good stopping points along the way).  Our information pack has plenty of suggestions, and maps. There are also classic kids attractions such as the Pyrenean Animal Park and the birds of prey display. Lots of fun things to discover and keep everyone happy.

A self guided trek with activities at the end of the week. Again a perfect summer holiday combination.

Road Cycling

Tackle the Pyrenean Cols where Tour de France riders test themselves each year.  Luz is ideally situated between the Tourmalet and Aubisque passes, along with the famous Luz Ardiden and Hautacam climbs, and the lesser known Col des Tentes, and (only for the brave) Troumouse. Rent good road bikes at the bike shop just down the road from us in Luz or bring your own. Contact Sian.
