Tour de Gavarnie
The Tour the Gavarnie has been changed. You only walk in the Central Pyrenees.
For this winter it’s also possible to go to the Spanish refuge Montgarri , for example, with the sled dogs you go there and the next day you go back with the snowmobile.
Last winter we were invited by Kim, the manager of the Spanish refuge Montgarri . The refuge where we always go to in the summer.
We went by car to the ski area Baquera in Spain , near Vielha . Kim was already waiting for us and together we sat down in a carriage towed by approximately 12 dogs. We were transported by the Spanish champion. In winter there are matches between lots of sledges and dogs, some matches go through the whole Spanish Pyrenees and take up to 12 days.
We all felt it was super!
In the evening we had a delicious dinner in the refuge.
The next day we went back after breakfast and this time with the snowmobile !
Ireen and myself were driving the snowmobile itself and we both had a child behind. Jeanne did not want to go so fast but Luc wanted to go only faster!
This really was a lovely weekend , a bit pricey (usually ) , but some things you have to do just once in your life !
For this coming winter we have a request from a family who wants to do something similar. They live in the neighborhood of Paris.
For other families or people that will come from the UK they might stay longer than just a night.
It is also possible to go skiing a few days at Guzet Neige, or in Spain . You can also do cross country skiing or snowshoe walks for a few days. As a final weekend you could dine in the Spanish refuge with this exceptional transport .
