This summer we are organising an Open Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Qualifying Expedition in the French Pyrenees:
– Saturday 10th to Saturday 17th August 2019
The scenery is very beautiful with lots of lakes, pine forests, gorges and high mountains (2,700m). The weather is generally sunny and dry. An excellent network of paths and trails crisscross the area providing lots of scope for walking. In the months before the expedition we offer you support to help you plan an suitable expedition route.
The expedition week begins at Barcelona airport where we pick you up by minibus and drive you to our base in the French Pyrenees – a guest house in the village of Saint Pierre dels Forcats.
Included in the package is full board accommodation before and after the expedition, expedition supervision and assessment, rest day activities (outdoor swimming, hot springs and BBQ) and sightseeing in Barcelona.
