Description

I am offering you two days to discover bivouacking in the mountains of the Pyrenees.

You will learn how to make a successful bivouac, when, how and where to build a fire, and what the regulations are. You will also learn how to optimize the weight of your pack and what to bring for meals.

If you'd like to continue your training in autonomy, I also offer a trek preparation 3-day course in the Pyrenees.
You can also come with me for some great trips like the Pic des Posets ascent, the Añisclo canyon tour or a great discovery of the Néouvielle Conservation Area.

Program

D1: Backpack preparation and hiking.
Meet in Arreau, an hour's drive from Tarbes or Saint-Gaudens.
The day starts with checking and optimizing the contents of your backpacks, even though you will receive a trousseau in preparation for your stay. It's important to limit the weight of the backpack and organize its storage.
Once you have finished packing, it's off for the day's hike!
When reaching the bivouac place, I wil explain how and where to pitch your tent, as well as everything to do with camp management (garbage cans, water, cold, etc.).
Altitude positive difference: approx. 600 meters, i.e. +/- 4 hours of walking.

D2: Full-day hike.
After breakfast facing the mountains, you pack up your bivouac, reorganize your backpacks and set off again for a great day's hiking.
D+: 700m, 5 to 6 hours of walking.
