With incredible valleys, forests, lakes and peaks, the Hautes-Pyrénées are full of surprises. Among the many must-sees, don’t miss the Cirque de Gavarnie. Close to the hotel and classed as a UNESCO heritage site, this wonder of nature is a unique site. Surrounded by high peaks, the cirque has a circumference of 6.5 km, a 1500 m wall, and one of the largest waterfalls in Europe (427 m). Then follow the tracks of the Tour de France by taking the route of the passes (Clos de Tourmalet and d’Aspin etc.). On the way, you’ll discover another exceptional place - the Pic du Midi de Bigorre. Accessible year round due to its cable car, this legendary peak has a great landscape terrace offering a panoramic view over the mountains and plains of the Midi-Pyrénées. You can also admire the observatory there and visit the museum space concerning the story of its construction.
South of the Col du Tourmalet on the GR10 hiking trail, also take a trip into the magnificent Néovielle nature reserve. With century-old pines, lakes and granite arêtes, discover an outstanding mountainous area home to marmots and numerous species of small bird (redstarts, finches, pipits and cross-bills). If you enjoy hiking, you’ll also be impressed by sheer beauty of the Cauterets-Pont d'Espagne site. At the heart of the Pyrénées National Park, this conservation area has numerous footpaths crossing green forests and meadows. You’ll see gushing streams, wild waterfalls and stunning landscapes. Make the most of your stay with us by visiting one of the most famous pilgrimage sites in the world - Lourdes. In this legendary town, visit the sanctuaries (Grotto of Massabielle, the basilicas, the crypt etc.), the castle fort and the view from the Pic du Jer, accessible via funicular railway.
