Extend the discovery

Around the Gavarnie Valleys

Although it is impossible to have seen and done everything in the Gavarnie Valleys as the diversity of its landscapes and activities is vast, its proximity to other places of interest allows the discovery to be extended. Start by exploring the treasures of Lourdes, Tarbes and Bagnères-de-Bigorre, three jewels of the Hautes-Pyrénées which will not fail to amaze you. Let yourself also be tempted by the charms of Pau, the splendor of the Ossau Valley, the authenticity of the Basque Country, the terroir of the Madiran vineyards, and even nearby Spain! Here, the possibilities for exploration are as endless as the beauty of the landscapes around you.

A FRONTIER OF DISCOVERIES 

The Gavarnie Valleys, located in the heart of the Pyrenees, offer a unique opportunity to live a cross-border experience between France and Spain. At this natural border, the Pyrenees-Mont Perdu ensemble is shared, an exceptional region listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. This set includes the three cirques of Gavarnie, on the French side, and the canyons of the Ordesa National Park, on the Spanish side. The border thus becomes a gateway to two distinct but equally spectacular natural universes.
