Achieve the double during your stay by combining the two great major sites of the Valleys of Lourdes - Gavarnie: the circus of Gavarnie and the Bridge of Spain.
The Pont d'Espagne, a must-see site in the Pyrenees.
Direction the road of waterfalls which rises towards the altitude valleys and offers grandiose points of view where the beneficial water upsets the vegetable and mineral balance of the mountain. This road leads to the Pont d'Espagne . After a photo stop between waterfalls and tumultuous gorges, choose to go up to Lac de Gaube by chairlift (not included) or a walk to Marcadau which is home to rich fauna and flora populations. Return by Cauterets, queen of spas once visited by Napoleon III and Eugénie.
Lunch break and discovery of a gourmet know-how: the manufacture of the berlingot .
The Cirque de Gavarnie, emblematic heart of the Pyrenees National Park.
Cap on the edge of the French mountains where stands the colossus of the Pyrenees immortalized by Victor Hugo. The Cirque de Gavarnie welcomes you to its majestic bosom. This formidable coliseum made of rocks and waterfalls will serve as a theater for your walk. By easy access hiking trails, get closer to this imposing wall of 1700 m, the last rampart before Spain.
