Major tourist location
A day near the sky!
Unique in France and absolutely magical, the Pic du Midi de Bigorre peaks at 2877 metres for a 360° view of the Pyrenean peaks.
To reach the summit of the Pic du Midi, let yourself be transported by the cable car from the ski resort of La Mongie. 1,000 m of elevation gain in 15 minutes: this is already an event that promises an extraordinary journey to the panoramic terraces. The bravest will be able to go hiking to reach the summit.
Imagine a glacial cirque at a height of 3,000 meters, at its heart one of the highest waterfalls in Europe (427 meters): you have Gavarnie Cirque!
Its two neighbours the Troumouse and Estaubé cirques are speechless when faced with so much beauty and such fantastic dimensions!
This is the trilogy of 3 natural amphitheatres in the land of glacial cirques, you can visit one, two or all three. The three cirques are less than an hour’s drive from the campsite and guarantee you each an exit where you will take full eyes, 100% nature and escape!
Lourdes, a source of inspiration
Cosmopolitan and benevolent, Lourdes is located at the gateway to the Gaves Valley. Known as a place of spirituality and brotherhood, it receives 6 million travelers every year from all continents. These pilgrims come to meditate and contemplate the cave of Massabielle, where the Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette Soubirous in 1858, forever changing the destiny of the city. Lourdes has a rich natural and cultural heritage: the Sanctuary, the Castle, the Pic du Jer and the lake… It is also the starting point for many walks.…
At Pont d’Espagne, classified Grand Site Occitanie (Major site of Occitanie), you can immerse yourself in this site with its many waterfalls, hiking routes and mountain lake paths. Lac Gaube is undoubtedly the most well-known, accessible by chairlift or on foot. A 45min from the campsite La Ribere !
