Your best adventures are ahead!

Rafting | Let’s go rafting, in stable dinghies manned by a team paddling furiously. This inflatable raft, with an on-board guide makes white-water accessible to everyone. The crew, is made up of 8 members who follow the guide’s instructions to manoeuvre the boat. The safety instructions given before departure make it possible to tackle any situation, involuntary or intentional…. Because the raft is a very good team player and, with the health and safety covered by the guide, all that is left is fun and games!

 Canyoning | The Gavarnie Valleys are full of magnificent canyons through which you can explore the mountains differently, in a fun and sporty way! Make your way through water ways, gaze up at waterfalls, squeeze between rocks, slide down natural water slides, make your first rappel, float in the crystal clear waters … Playful and accessible to everyone!

Spéléology | Does a trip to the centre of the earth sound good to you? Discover this underground world in complete safety, accompanied by an accredited and passionate instructor: magical curiosities of nature, vast rooms, galleries, stalactites, underground rivers. Speleology is an adventure accessible to everyone (children from 6+ years) and all year long (stable temperature of 13 degrees), even great on a rainy day because the caves are not subject to the rise in water levels. Walk, climb, crawl, contemplate … And go back up to the open air with a head full of memories!

Climbing | There is no shortage of natural climbing walls here! Whether you are a beginner climber or a confirmed climber, the Pyrenees are perfect for climbing, with free access or supervised by a professional. And on rainy days or simply to be introduced gently, head to the climbing hall of Gèdre and its 18 meters high for all levels!

Via ferrata  | Between hiking and climbing, these routes arranged on the walls make you discover the valleys of Gavarnie and its ponaramas in an autonomous way (for seasoned practitioners with their own equipment) or accompanied with guides who provide the equipment.
Two spots are available to you: the via ferrata of the Pont Napoléon, fun and ideal to start and the via ferrata of Coumély facing the Cirque de Gavarnie, rather sporty with a Nepalese bridge at 40 m height!

Tree climber  | The tree climber, who has never dreamed of climbing all the way up a tree? Of moving there as alert as the monkeys? Live the adventure from tree to tree and share unforgettable moments, with friends, in group, in family, and take the height! A fun, sporting activity to share… in Luz st sauveur and Argeles-gazost.

You will live moments of intense communion with nature. Find all the guides of high mountains on the site of the tourist office.
