Paddling in Pyrénées (June/July)

Post by JohnAllan » Mon Jun 10, 2019 10:45 am

I was just wondering if anyone could offer any advice on whether there is much to paddle around the French side of the Pyrénées.
Just looking at options for MTB, but also some WW paddling around Lourdes, or perhaps further east as well. Planning to be there end of June To around 10th July. If anyone see is there, would be good to link up. Happen to paddle from G3 to G4+

It doesn't go quite far enough but you might like to store this site for later use

Thanks Adrian. Just about there now. Had a nice pleasant day surfing at Biscarrosse today. Not big, but some nice peaks and you can’t argue with water temp or 20 degrees :-). Probably heading to Lourdes area for Tuesday.

That’s map is very handy. Thanks.

A few runs claim to have water in Mid Pyrenees (click on the river name to see if descriptions included):
