What’s more, you don’t even have to all do the same activities. That’s the beauty of our fully flexible activity points system. Pool the points and share them out amongst the family so everybody is happy.
Unlike many of our competitors, we won’t tie you into any particular accommodation. After all, everybody has different tastes and different budgets.
Whether you’d prefer to stay in a mobile home or chalet on a 4* campsite, a self-catering property in a mountainside hamlet, a cosy B&B or even a 3* hotel in town, our tailor made family adventure holiday is designed around you.
We’ll ask you to provide us with your preferences on the enquiry form which is on the right hand side of this page on desktop but keep scrolling for the form on mobile. We’ll get back to you pronto with some accommodation options and prices for your holiday.
Not only do we do all of the organisation of your family adventure holiday in the Pyrenees but we also make recommendations on other local experiences that we think you may enjoy.
We can arrange for you to visit the family farm at which goats cheese is produced and where you can see the milking process and taste the cheeses too.
We’ll give you information about the falconry centre where you can see amazing birds of prey stretching their wings and we’ll also introduce you to local specialities such as tree cake which you can see being made.
We’ll make recommendations for the best family friendly restaurants at which you’ll eat local dishes prepared with love from local and seasonal produce.
To top it all, an on site holiday manager is available throughout your family adventure holiday to ensure you really do have the best family holiday ever. It’s all part of our 5* rated service!

Thank you Adventure Creators for a wonderful week in the Pyrenees. It was all very well organised, and Penny’s local knowledge was really helpful, especially with her great restaurant recommendations.
Morning activities were safe and well thought out, and Penny gave us suggestions for where to go in our free time. She joined us for a couple of activities and a meal, and was great company and full of useful and interesting local information.
Our group of 2 adults and a teen did white water rafting (quite sedate this year), via ferrata (nice guide and just the right level), rock climbing (beautiful scenery and personal guide, lots of routes for us), high ropes/tree adventure (a fantastic mix of Go-Ape and via ferrata with lots of routes and ability ranges. The 2 toughest routes took us an hour each, and had the most amazing zip wires includied). Trotinette – a mad mix of mountain bike and scooter – great fun and I think this was the males’ favourite activity.
All in all, good value for money, well organised and we would recommend Adventure Creators for organising a family holiday for adrenalin junkies and adventure virgins alike
Fantastic week doing a whole mixture of activities, pitched just right. All the activities went smoothly, great fun, good accommodation, good food, helpful information. Without the pre-organisation there is no way that we would have done all the activities or had such a relaxing and pleasantly distracting week. Beautiful setting – hoping to come back for more.
Great trip and didn’t want to come home! Really fun activities in an amazing mountain setting with a well organised itinerary. Enjoyed some warm sun and rain which actually didn’t make any difference to our activities and helped increase water levels. Great local markets and some nice simple French food.
Excellent accommodation at Le Baluchon B & B in Cierp Gaud where Michel and Marie where lovely hosts. It is an old barn conversion but with very tasteful modern extensions and additions with views over the village and Pyrenean foothills.
We especially liked the variety of water based sport; rafting just over in Spain to coincide with water releases from hydro dams, hydrospeeding, canoeing, and canyoning; learning some new techniques involving ropes, carabiners etc. with specific and warm wetsuits for each activity. It was a real taster for these well run activities and now would love to come back when the water levels would be more challenging
Fantastic week of activities in a stunningly beautiful area, Penny goes the extra mile to come up with an itinerary that in addition to the activities makes sure that get the most of each different area that you visit. Also excellent suggestions for start points for walks, felt like you were getting some local knowledge.
Good private gite, interesting mix of new and old! Fantastic pool, covered terrace area and BBQ, great views from the terrace over the wooded foothills to the big mountains in the distance. Wide selection of games, good outdoor table tennis table, the only thing missing seemed to be a boule set for the boule area?
High wires (Pyrenee Ho) and the kayaking trip (especially going over a small dam!) were the highlights for us. Discovered that as you get older you seem to feel less comfortable at activities that are at height (or underground) but both are no problem for an 8 year old!
Penny organised an action-packed few days for our family including white water kayaking, downhill mountain biking, high wires, via ferrata and canyoning. The latter was a substitute for parapenting which was postponed due to low cloud, however it turned out to be the highlight of the week. Well recommended Penny!
After our initial meeting with Penny for a run through our itinerary, she was on hand by text or email to answer any questions or recommend places to visit. A wonderful tailor made hassle-free holiday with the flexibility to sightsee and enjoy the local food and nearby Spanish
We stayed in a family suite (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) at La Baluchon. Tucked on the hillside with amazing views our hosts Michel and Marie made us feel very at home. We enjoyed the shared breakfasts with other guests of all nationalities, which made for interesting conversation and exchange of ‘must see’ places to visit. A lovely B&B close to most of our activities, the spa town of Luchon and the beautiful Louron valley.
We enjoyed all of our activities and our guides Olivier at the bike hire shop and Sebastien at the Canyoning were extremely welcoming. The High Wires were challenging (enjoyed by our 15 year old) and the via ferrata not for the feint hearted
