Questions related to Summer Pyrenees Family Holiday

Can the rope suspension bridge be avoided when mountain biking in the Cortals Valley?

 Yes, the rope bridge is optional as there is a path that goes underneath it.

What grade is the white water rafting and what is it like?

The general course is Grade 2/3. The river is fast flowing and rough in some parts, it is exciting but not dangerous. You can be taken on calmer sections of the river if you prefer.

What is the minimum age for the rafting?

The minimum age is 6 years old, but children aged between 6-12 years will only be able to do the grade 2 rapids. An ability to swim is essential.

Questions related to Andorra

How cold is it?

Pretty cold! You're above the snow line in the mountains. The hotel has snow all around it so you'll be straight into the fun and the action. Having said this it can get a lot warmer in the middle of the day and the sun can be fierce so you'll need to bring sunglasses and sun cream.

Does the transfer bus have seat belts?

No, it is not required by law in Andorra.

What is the food like?

Breakfast and dinner is served at the hotel and there is normally a choice of three main meals for dinner and a continental buffet breakfast.  Lunch is available (pre booked the night before) at E7.00 per person.  Vegetarian options are not a problem.

Is the water drinkable?

The tap water in Western Europe is generally safe, your group leader will advise you if there are any places it is not.

What money should I take?

The local currency is the Euro. You should take sufficient cash to get you through at least the first few days. Owners of bankcards with the Cirrus logo can get cash from ATMs. Credit cards  can be used in some places.

What is the accommodation like?

The Hotel Roc is situated 10 minutes walk from the village of Soldeu. The hotel has 12 rooms with a range of singles, doubles, twins and family rooms, all en-suite. It also features a well stocked bar and restaurant downstairs with great views of the mountains. There is satellite TV with Sky television, and for family groups darts and play stations can be arranged! The hotel operates an honesty system at the bar, with guests paying at the end of the week. There is a small garden with tables and chairs. The hotel is basic.  Its charm however is the friendliness of the staff, especially Nick and his wife who really make you feel welcome. Extra departures stay at the Soldeu Maistre Hotel

Questions related to General Information

What's not included in the price?

Generally anything not listed in the itinerary. This includes optional tours and excursions, some meals, visas, vaccinations, excess baggage charges, porterage at hotels, insurance, international and entry/departure taxes overseas, and things of a personal nature such as drinks, tips, room service charges, phone calls, etc. As well as any new government taxes or price increases for hotels, transportation and airfares implemented after the tour programme for this brochure was costed.  

What's included within the trip price?

Everything listed within the itinerary is included; accommodation, on-tour transport, the services of a group leader and local guides, entrance fees, excursions and activities, as well as a number of meals. See your Trip Notes for full details. Transfers to and from the airport in-country are also included for those on Group Flights, as well as a mandatory ATOL Protection Charge of £2.50 which protects your booking. 

What do I take with me?

See your Trip Notes, these have a detailed packing list. On most international flights you're restricted to twenty kilograms baggage and we recommend you always pack light. Generally hard suitcases are not suitable.

If I book late is it cheaper?

No, it is not a package with charter flights and accommodation, whereas if there is spare capacity the price is reduced to ensure it fills up.

With small group adventures flights and ground arrangements are reserved separately, due to the flexibility involved. On most trips we have a contract with a preferred airline and an allocation of flights at a special rate. However from between 1-3 months before departure, depending on the airline, we have to hand back our unused allocation. Therefore we have to buy airline tickets on the open market, which can result in flight supplements.

This point is even more prevalent for family trips, where demand for flights is high during the school holidays. Therefore reserving places late is likely to include high flight supplements.

Speak to a Travel Consultant for more information, but the rule of thumb is it’s best to reserve your place earlier.  

Can I book a trip without flights?

Yes you can do this on every trip.

Can I organise a trip with just my friends or family?

Yes, just let us know your chosen trip and we can organise a private departure. Prices may vary from those given on the website, depending on the size of the group and date of departure.

What is a group adventure?

The average group size is between 6-12, although groups can be larger or smaller than this. Generally they will be of all ages and from all walks of life. However, you will have similar interests and the shared experiences on the itinerary soon bring everyone together.

What is the accommodation going to be like?

Accommodation is clean, simple and choosen for its value for money, location and atmosphere. You'll mainly stay in twin rooms which have private facilities within small, locally-run, 2-3 star hotels and guesthouses, which reflect the character of the area. Sometimes though you'll stay in larger, more comfortable hotels or occasionally rustic accommodation with basic facilities. In such we also try and incorporate unique accommodation experiences, such as a night with a local tribe, or sleeping under the stars in the desert.

There are also camping options on several of our trekking and wildlife trips, for which all equipment is provided, but it might be necessary to bring personal gear such as sleeping bags.

Accommodation commences on the first night of the "without flights" itinerary until check-out on the day of departure. Please note accommodation on all trips are subject to change.

How knowledgeable and experienced is the Group Leader in general?

The local guides undergo extensive training in all aspects of travel in the region. They are full-time professionals and are selected for their empathy and knowledge of the area you are visiting. 

 

Is there a maximum age?

All of our trips are designed to be accessible to anyone with a good level of fitness. If you are travelling on one of our southern Africa tours and are aged 65 or over, you will need to provide a medical certificate signed by your doctor.
