JOURNÉE DU PATRIMOINE "À LA RECHERCHE DE CETTE BELLE ROCHE VERTE : LA DIABASE"
Nicknamed "The Eden of the Pyrenees" by the Pyrenean Louis Ramond de Carbonnières ...the Val d'Azun is a beautiful natural jewel!
With its authentic stone and slate villages, unspoilt nature and superb Nordic ski area, Val d'Azun is an authentic and charming area. The summit of Balaïtous which rises to 3,144m in altitude, majestically watches over this preserved valley in the Pyrenees National Park. Here traditions have shaped landscapes and men ... Pastoralism is the soul of these mountains that follow the rhythm of the seasons and give Val d'Azun cheese its delicious fragrance of freedom.
In winter, the valley retains its natural charm and snowshoeing or cross-country skiing is the best way to discover it. The Nordic area of Val d'Azun is the largest in the Hautes-Pyrénées with 90 kilometers of trails through open spaces and pine forests.
Le Nordic Park at the Couraduque Pass is a children's favourite with its two magic carpet lifts for skiing and tobogganing in safety.
