In the Gavarnie Valleys, the water punctuates the seasons. In winter, in the form of snow, it delights skiers, while in summer it transports water sports enthusiasts to its white waters. The rivers in our valleys, known here as the Gaves, are an excellent way to cool off when the summer temperatures rise! Canyoning, rafting, kayaking, mini-rafting, hot-dogs... So many activities that it is possible to try out here. Make your choice ! 

Canyoning

This activity in the middle of nature is a must in summer to cool off in the Hautes-Pyrénées. Here, there is no question of a boat, you are your only means of transport! Along with experienced instructors, progress sometimes by walking, abseiling, or swimming in the canyons of the valleys, like the Heas Canyon

Like a little drop, sneak in crystal clear water valleys and follow its frenetic pace. Equipped with a neoprene wetsuit that allows you to float, follow the stream by chaining natural slides and jumps.  

With family or friends, from initiation to more sporty outings, this activity is an original way to discover the mountain scenery from a new angle.

Rafting

 

Helmet, wetsuit and vest put on, paddle in hand, you are ready to board your inflatable boat. THE monitor will steer the boat and give you instructions on how to tame your raft with the help of your teammates.  

Sometimes in the rapids, sometimes in calmer currents, go down the gave enjoying the landscape that surrounds you. This intense activity in sensations is also an excellent way to surpass oneself, but also to create team cohesion.  

A tasty mix of splashes and bursts of laughter, these refreshing outings are accessible to everyone, provided you know how to swim!

Focus on... The Boat Cocktail 

For those who have already tried rafting and kayaking and want to try the experience again by adding a little spice, why not let yourself be tempted by the boat cocktail? This concept allows you, for half a day, to take advantage of the different possible boats!

Hiking

As the water flows

It is also possible to enjoy the freshness of the Pyrenean water through peaceful walks! Swap crowded beaches for expanses of fresh water in the heart of a wild nature. Along our rivers, near waterfalls or on the shores of our mountain lakes, there is something for everyone.

On the easy pathsaccess by car or a few minutes walk or via beautiful hikes, our lakes and rivers are perfect when summer is in full swing

We lie down at the edge of the water to enjoy the freshness that they release while the little ones have fun making ricochets.
