If you’re dreaming of a trip to France that will benefit both body and soul, we think we’ve got it covered in this outline itinerary for a wellbeing break in the French Pyrenees.
If you live or work in a city then breathing polluted air is probably part of everyday life, as is noise and stress.
The mountains of the Pyrenees are an antidote to all that unpleasantness. The area is good for the soul in more ways than you can imagine.
From the pure mountain air to the far-reaching natural beauty, peace and quiet of the mountain environment, there is no place like it for enhancing your general feeling of wellbeing.
The area is also known for its natural spa facilities which are the result of geothermal activity that is a part of life in these parts. There are numerous places with Bagneres and les Bains in their name which all indicate the presence of thermal spa facilities.
On this wellbeing trip to the Pyrenees you will be based in your choice of accommodation (B&B, hotel, it’s up to you) in the spa town of Bagneres de Bigorre. It’s a great base from which to explore the heart of the mountain chain.
Your yoga classes may include very special ‘yoga in the mountains’ sessions, mindful walks and barefoot walking too, all aimed at connecting you with the stunning landscape and boosting your wellbeing.
All sessions will be led by a fully qualified and experienced yoga instructor and you’ll learn more about posture, stretching, nutrition and hydration.
The guided hiking will always be tailored to your level. From gentle mountain saunters on which you’ll drink in the natural beauty of the French Pyrenees to more challenging day hikes covering bigger distances with more ascent, your guide will ensure you have an unforgettable time.
After all that activity, what better way to relax than with a spa session at the local spa center, taking in the mineral rich thermal waters and enjoying the relaxing effect of the hydro massage jets.
For the full works, why not book a massage or a full body treatment which uses ‘lait d’ânesse’ which is donkey milk renowned for its healing properties, especially for skin conditions.
After your wellbeing break in the French Pyrenees you will return home revived and rejuvenated, ready to take on the world!
This wellbeing trip to the French Pyrenees includes a great combination of yoga, spa visits and hiking.
The number of yoga sessions and spa visits are flexible as is the level of the guided hiking in the mountains. Massage sessions can be arranged as well as cultural side visits if you wish.
The whole itinerary will be adapted to what you wish to experience on your wellbeing trip to the Pyrenees.
