4-day Peaks’n’Huts in the French and Andorran Pyrenees

4 days hiking in the Pyrenees, between France and Andorra, swimming in beautiful mountain lakes, scrambling up to mountain peaks and ending the trip in thermal baths! Doesn’t it sound fabulous?

This trip is led by David Norris, international mountain leader.

What’s the plan?

Day 1

Dave picks you up at Toulouse airport at 11:00 and drives you to Incles valley. After checking everyone’s equipment, we start the hike to reach the first hut of this trip, Refuge Juclar at 2’310m above sea level in one of the smallest European countries, Andorra. The hut is located near Primer reservoir, Andorra’s largest lake. Dinner and night at Refuge Juclar.

Technical info.: 10km – 1050m ascent – 450m descent

Day 2

After breakfast, we start the hike from Refuge Juclar to Refuge du Rulhe. We cross the border to continue in the French Pyrenees, hiking along beautiful mountain lakes. Dinner and night at Refuge du Rulhe.

Technical info.: 5km – 300m ascent – 500m descent

Day 3

Summit day! The goal of the day is to reach Pic Rulhe at 2’783m. The way up is a long scramble and the views from the summit are worth the effort. Dinner and night at Refuge du Rulhe.

Technical info.: 6km – 600m ascent – 600m descent (scrambling)

Day 4

After breakfast, we start our slow descent to the valley to get back to the car and end this beautiful trip. Before going back to Toulouse, we have the possibility to enjoy the thermal baths and offer our muscles some relaxation in Ax-les-Thermes. Shuttle to the airport at the end of the day and night at Premiere Classe Toulouse Ouest to be ready for the early flight on Sunday morning.

Technical info.: 3km – 300m descent
