Frankrijk | Natuur en sport
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een natuur en sportproject.
Het project duurt van 2 t/m 23 augustus.
With the support of a technical facilitator, you will participate in the enhancement of a trekking path by working on its alignment and setting up signs. The first part of the track was done last year, this summer you should be able to reach an old mountain shelter which will be the object of next year workcamp. During work you will meet hikers. The work place is located at 1400m above sea level and there will be one or two hours walk every day.
You will be accommodated in the sports hall of the village for the weekends and during the week you will sleep in tents in a high altitude camp with a big tent at your disposal for collective life. You will be able to set up all the commodities you need there; a bread oven, solar shower, toilets… You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together.
Laruns is located 50Km south of Pau city and 30Km from the Spanish border. Hiking, climbing initiation and discovery of local traditions will be offered during leisure times. For more information, visit the following websites: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laruns
For mountain lovers! Spend three weeks in altitude on the western Pyrenees Mountains. Laruns, mountain town at the top of the Ossau Valley belongs to the Pyrenees’ natural national park. It is the third year that we work with Laruns municipality which happens to be the third biggest county of France (approximately 250 000 km²). This year they want us to open trekking path for hikers. It is a unique opportunity to experience life in the mountains and meet its people.
It is necessary to be in a good physical condition and ready to do sport to participate to this project as you’ll need to climb the mountain up and down regularly. We ask for a motivation letter when you register. Bring a warm sleeping bag, both lightweight and very warm clothes as well as rain gear, mountain hiking shoes, mosquito repellent, flashlight, batteries, sunscreen and swimsuit. A backpack is necessary to go up and down the mountain daily. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
