Into the Wild with TLA in the Pyrenees!


Adventure into the wild with TLA this coming May....

During the formation of TLA Fitness, it's been clear that one of the areas that is enjoyed most by our clients is that of training with like minded people outdoors! Getting outdoors, being active and really engaging with the surroundings is something we all love to do! So... I have decided to gather interest on who would be up for a 4 day, 3 night (Fri-Mon) Adventure Hike into the wild to spend an amazing night camping under the stars in the beautiful Pyrenees in the south of France, based at the picturesque Chateau de Gere! There will of course be challenge, team camaraderie, adventure, great food, excellent instruction and time to switch off in the wild and discover new skills.

Who is this suitable for? If you are interested in the above and below and it grabs your attention then it's most likely for you. Being a firm believer in setting a goal or having a target then this offers exactly that. Living on what you carry on your back and being in and among one of the most scenic mountain ranges, being at the forefront of nature, exploring and giving yourself that all important head space, meeting others and striking new relationships is part of the fun and excitement that this trip will bring to you.



The weekend itinerary:

Friday: Afternoon arrival at Lourdes airport - Transit to Chateau de Gere - Evening meal + Kit issue & Kit preparation

Saturday: Breakfast at Chateau - Kit inspection - Transit to start point, Lac de Bious Artigues - Hike - Set up camp at Lac de Peyreget - Camp routine/Dinner/Bushcraft 

Sunday: Breakfast at camp-site - Strike camp - Circuit of Pic de Midi d'Ossau - Arrive back at transport (Lac de Bious-Artigues) rtn to Chateau de Gere - Free time(swim, massage, relax) - Dinner-BBQ at chateau

Monday: Breakfast served at chateau - Team Games - Trip to local town for coffee/crepes/souvenirs - Transport leaves for Lourdes airport

Cost would be £499 per person (all inclusive) + flights (not included).Additional activities can be arranged during the hike also at a small additional cost Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Tyrolean Traverse, Survival Training.

The dates in which I am looking to explore are: either 11th-14th May OR 25th-28th May (BH weekend), please do email your preferred dates.

If you would genuinely be interested please email Tom on 'tom@tlafitness.com' and I will keep you posted.
