Come and enjoy a nature filled week with BOB The Big Orange Bedford, who lives in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Bobsbestest brings you an exclusive wild camping holiday. If you love the outdoors and are longing for a place with a difference to rest, de-stress, and recharge your batteries, this is it.


The location is Lac Montbel in the Ariege region of France. The lake has an addictive 'spirit of tranquility and it may be that you are looking to just chill by the lake but, if you are looking for a more active holiday, there's lots to do. Kayaking, cycling, riding, fishing, walking and of course wild swimming. Two trips are included, one to Mirepoix market to sample the delights of the region and another to Montsegur, the most dramatic Cathar castle in France.


BOB will be your basecamp. He is a 1984 ex-military Bedford MJ that has been transformed into an expedition vehicle. He is amazing and will be your base camp for the week. Top quality backpack, with all kit provided. Transfers from Carcasonne included but flights must be booked separately. See "The Deal" for details of full package. Book early as places are limited.  

There is no light pollution at Lac Montbel so the night sky is to die for. It truely is nature at its best. The wildlife is second to none. Owls and frogs, yes frogs, may seronade you at night and in the morning birdsong. Huge birds of prey soar and many water birds gather at Montbel too, shags, cormorants, herons to name a few. Fish, flowers, trees, and the air you breathe will fill you with peace that only nature can bring.
