Pentecost trip to Pyrenees!

June 3, 2022 @ 6:00 pm – June 6, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Hey! It’s Pentecost! We got a great long weekend! Why don’t you make sense of such a great weekend with a lot of cool people? This time we’re going to this beautiful city of Ax-les-Thermes, in the middle of the Pyrenees!

So the plan is very simple: Come to Ax-les-Thermes some time during the day on June 3. I’ve already booked a place for 10 people, so you don’t need to organise anything for the stay. Since it’s an AirBnB, we have to organise breakfast and everything on the spot.

Day I (June 4, 2022):

We can hike according to the following map after breakfast:

There’s apparently also a jazz concert in a small local café.

Day II (June 5, 2022):

We take the train leaving at 9:43 and go to Mérens-les-Vals and start hiking according to this map:

Day III (June 6, 2022)

Probably I don’t organise anything in particular on the last day – we can maybe go to Toulouse and do sightseeing 🙂 It’s anyway a super interesting city.

For now I’d say 50€ per person for 3 nights (!?). The place doesn’t offer linen and towels which can be rented for 35€ and 15€, respectively. I’ll get croissants etc every morning, whose costs will be shared, but except for this I’d say we buy stuff for the breakfast individually.

There’s a night train from Paris to Ax les Thermes, so think about taking it! If you do so, you might also want to think about taking a Carte Weekend beforehand, which is the French equivalent of Bahncard. It costs 49€ a year and you and a person you’ll be with can have a 30% discount on the train ticket.
