We are delighted to offer a women-only version of our highly rated XC mountain biking holiday in the stunning mountains of the French Pyrenees.

Why a women’s MTB holiday? Quite simply because of the relaxed and highly supportive not to mention fun atmosphere of women only groups. It really is an environment in which women mountain bikers thrive. To see confidence evolving over the holiday is pretty special and it’s not unusual for the group to keep in touch once they have returned home.

Mutual encouragement, fun and laughs tend to be the order of the day on these women’s MTB holidays plus of course winding up your male guide! He loves every minute of it, believe me!

What’s the mountain biking like in the Pyrenees?

The riding will appeal to any regular mountain biker who loves riding natural trails. The mountain biking in the Luchon area of the French Pyrenees is varied and challenging, the scenery breath-takingly beautiful and the trails quiet and off the beaten track.

There is an endless variety of trails here, some fast and flowy, others rocky and technical, with long fireroad ascents that will challenge your endurance to off-camber singletrack that will test your balance and your nerve.

Those mountain bikers who have the confidence and ability will be able to challenge their skills on the steeper more technical terrain whilst those seeking an easier ride will have route options to suit them.

Is this women’s MTB holiday for me?

If you are a regular XC mountain biker who has a reasonable level of fitness and a good ‘can do’ attitude then this is the perfect opportunity to improve your form, skills and confidence.

You will be out on the trails typically from 10am to 4pm on the 5 days that you will be riding. But the pace will be up to you. You are on holiday after all!

Skills coaching is provided as a matter of routine by your professionally qualified guide. Whether it’s your bike set up, body position or riding technique that is letting you down, you are sure to return home equipped with some hot tips that will help you take your riding to the next level.

This women’s mountain biking holiday takes place around the beautiful spa town of Bagnères-de-Luchon in the French Pyrénées

Le Lutin – Luchon

Your base for this women’s mountain biking holiday is a relaxed, no frills small hotel with a ‘kick off your shoes and make yourself at home’ philosophy.

Lutin living room

The accommodation is in a quiet location and yet within walking distance of Luchon town centre and also the outdoor swimming pool and Vaporarium.

You’ve got secure bike storage facilities here as well as bike washing and bike maintenance facilities.

The rooms are basic but practical, some with en suite facilities, others sharing two shower rooms and WCs on the landing.

Russell is renowned for his cooking and his evening meals are legendary. He uses locally sourced produce as much as possible and the three course meals will satisfy even the biggest of appetites.

The breakfast buffet includes cheeses, ham, yoghurt, a variety of cereals, breads, pastries, tea, coffee, hot chocolate …. you get the picture!

Super mtb trip to the Pyrenees. Great town (Luchon), wonderful varied days out with our guide Ian, bit of mtb coaching thrown in to help tackle a few narly, steep sections and get us out of our comfort zone (in a good way)! Our food at Le Lutin each evening was superb, Russ is a fantastic chef! Weather was beautiful, scenery spectacular and transfers to Luchon timely and easy.

Lovely trails, even lovier food and a great group of ladies to enjoy it with! Ian (the guide) showed us some cracking descents and climbs!
The rainy first day made us appreciate the lovely autumn sunshine for the rest of the week!

Had a fabulous week away mountain biking in Luchon with the Adventure Creators. Lovely weather, cracking trails and a great bunch of ladies to enjoy it with. The guiding, coaching and general bike faffing from Ian was excellent. The accommodation was comfortable and welcoming and Russ’s food was out of this world! Highly recommend
