Le Parc Animalier des Pyrénées (The Pyreneen Animal Park)

Located in Argelès-Gazost, about 30 minutes from the campsite, the Parc Animalier des Pyrénées invites you to live an unforgettable experience in the heart of the mountains.
Explore 14 hectares of nature and discover nearly 120 animal species including marmots, otters, lynx, brown bears, grey wolves, vultures, ibex or red pandas, meerkats, gibbons and songbirds of the humid forests.

Here the animals evolve in semi-freedom, the marmots are fed by the children, the otters launch themselves in an aquatic ballet, the bears walk the air of nothing… An easy opportunity to be amazed by the inhabitants of the mountains. Children are conquered.

The park welcomes you every day between April and November. Ranked among the 3 most beautiful parks and zoos in France by tripadvisor!

Le Donjon des Aigles (Raptor Park)

The dungeon of the eagles, a show rich in emotions with vultures, eagles, owls, milans and parrots…  The castle of Beaucens, in the Hautes Pyrénées, houses one of the most prestigious collections of birds of prey!  On a musical background, a show of beauty to discover Spring holidays at the end of September.
