Papilio, snow-bound

Lac badech (5 minutes walk from Papilio)
Canyoning is an action packed full days adventure, including walking, scrambling, abseiling, swimming and jumping, all set in the French and Spanish Pyrenees, which is quite simply stunning. Canyoning is becoming a more and more popular sport. It requires a good knowledge of the area and of the necessary techniques required. As with most adventure activities a professional guide will support you.  
Snowboarding and skiing is a fantastic sport for all the family, Luchon has 2 fantastic ski resorts both of which are on the doorstep.  
Trekking in the stunning Pyrenean mountains in the snow has become a very popular activity, and Luchon is a fantastic place to try this adventure.  
There is no better way to see Luchon with all the surrounding White Mountains. This is a very enjoyable adventure activity. If you feel you want to go on to learn to fly solo then look no further than Luchon being your base for a few days or a week (course depending) as there are plenty of courses that run all year round that could bring this thought into reality.

Trekking on Aneto
The highest mountain of the Pyrenees at 3404 metres. The route is awesome and the views mind blowing. This is usually a 3 to 5 day trek. During this expedition you will be staying in refuges along the way which will provide you with a 3 course meal, a bed, log fire and a fun evening atmosphere.  

There are many different kinds of water rafting sports for you to choose from, all of which you will be given professional advice, guidance and support on. This again is an action packed day filled with adrenaline. whether you find yourself dipping into Spain or staying in France all the mountain rivers in the surrounding area of Luchon are crystal clear and fast flowing.  

Dog sledging
The Pyrenees is perfect for this unusual adventure. Held in the mountains surrounding Luchon this sport provides a day you will not forget.  

Donkey Riding in valley D' Ouile
This is the most stunning valley I know, (15 mins drive from Luchon town centre). In the months of May and June the valley is filled with wild flowers, which is really breathtaking.
