Day 1- Arrive at Chateau de Gere

Arrive at Lourdes airport where you’ll be met by a friendly member of the Alkari team before setting off for the Chateau in the heart of the Pyrenees. Once you arrive, you’ll be shown to your room, enjoy a friendly safety brief and hey, we’ll even throw in some tea, coffee, a glass of wine or a chilled beer or two!

Meals included: Dinner (Local restaurant)

Accommodation: Gere Belesten

Day 2-Canyoning in the Vallee d'Ossau

We’d better get an early start to make the most of the day, with a hearty breakfast served in the chateau. Once you’ve had your fill, we’ll load up and take a short drive to the big-boy mountains where the wet-suits and helmets will be donned before started the days canyoning.

If you’ve never done this before, you’re in for a serious treat. Your mode of transport for the day will be the fast flowing rivers running down through the gorges of the Vallee d’Ossau. You can expect to rappel down waterfalls, jump from cliffs into rock pools and shoot down fast paced, natural water slides as you make your way from the top, all the way down to the bottom of the mountain.

Once we get back to the chateau, you can relax by the pool, head off for a short hike or take part in some improvised abseiling techniques. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you’re kept busy!

Meals included: Large cooked breakfast (served at Chateau de Gere), Lunch (served on location of activity) and Dinner (local restaurant)

Accommodation: Gere Belesten

Via Ferrata

Another early start (Sorry!) will have us leaving heading south again for the via feratta routes. Originally installed to help allied raiding parties escape France into Spain, now a seriously cool way to spend a Sunday! You’ll be taken on a tour of all of the routes in the area, occasionally heading under small waterfalls (So remember to try to look tough whilst the freezing cold water is running down your neck!) We’ll take a large lunch along with us and plenty of tea and coffee for the whole day.

After a great session of via ferrata, what could be better than…more via ferrata! This time we’ll head back towards the chateau and stop off at the routes just outside of Laruns which ends in an epic 100ft abseil!

Back at the Chateau we’ll get the barbecue started for a hearty meal in the evening with plenty of drinks.

Meals included: Breakfast (Served at Chateau de Gere), Lunch (carried in packs), Dinner (Barbecue at the Chateau)

Accommodation: Chateau de Gere or Soumabayle

Day 4-Departure

After a relaxing night’s sleep, breakfast will be served at the chateau. After packing your bags, you’ll have a chance to visit the local cheese farm and stop off in town for coffee and crepes before we head back to Lourdes airport.
