THE FRENCH PYRENEES IN SUMMER

Saturday June 26th - Saturday July 3rd

This tour takes us to the impressive mountains of the French Pyrenees.  We fly to Toulouse and have a drive of approximately 2 1/2 hours to reach our hotel so depending on our flight time, we may have some time to wildlife watch on the way to Luz-St-Sauveur.  With the full 7 nights in one hotel in the majestic Pyrenees, we will be able to explore to some of the areas finest locations including the Cirque de Gavarnie.  Resident species such as Golden Eagle, Griffon Vulture, Lammergeier, Alpine Chough and Black Woodpecker as well as Isards (the Pyrenean equivalent of Chamois) and Alpine Marmots will surely be seen in good numbers so you know this is an exciting area to visit.  Add in masses of wonderful flowers including many endemics such as Pyrenean Saxifrage, Ramonda and Spanish Iris plus many other non-endemic plants including orchids, saxifrages and gentians and you know this is an excellent place for an easy-going wildlife watching tour. Any walks will be taken at a very gentle pace to give us plenty of chances to see as much as possible. And don't worry, the vehicle takes the strain of getting us up to the high ground!
