Escape and Evasion Line Specialist.
The Pyrenees are a mountain chain that separates France from Spain. To evade from Nazi occupied Europe into neutral Spain during World War 2 meant crossing these mountains. They represented both a physical barrier blocking the way but also a gateway to freedom. Come and follow in the footsteps of those that made the crossing and experience what it was like. Learn about who made the crossing and why and about the people that made the crossings possible. You can choose one of the better known Escape and Evasion lines like the Chemin de la Liberté/Freedom Trail as seen on the Channel 4 series 'Freedom Trails' with Monty Halls, or perhaps you have the Escape and Evasion report of a family member and want to retrace their actual footsteps across the Pyrenees.
A guided mountain walking holiday with a difference.
Although it may be challenging at times, there will also be fun and enjoyment and you will leave the Pyrenees with some wonderful memories having learnt a great deal. There is an enormous feeling of pride and satisfaction on reaching Spain having crossed over the Pyrenees.
Pyrenees Mountain Adventure believes that through the adventure of walking along the route of an Escape and Evasion line, that pushes you out of your comfort zone, comes discovery.
Discovery about yourself, those you are adventuring with and those that walked to freedom during World War 2 and those that risked their lives to help them. Leading on from discovery comes respect.
Self respect, respect for your trekking companions and ultimately respect for the escapers, evaders and the brave men and women of the Escape and Evasion networks.
