THE PYRENEES NATIONAL PARK
As you approach the mountains, you enter the Pyrenees National Park. The forest gradually gives way to sparser vegetation in the mountain pastures, and you can observe chamois and marmots (except in winter!). Griffon vultures, bearded vultures, golden eagles, and kestrels gracefully fly over you.
From easy walks accessible to all to high mountain treks, there is something for all tastes and all levels of fitness. The hiking trails in the Val d’Azun are numerous and varied. A true haven of peace with preserved nature, Val d’Azun is a paradise for hiking, ideal for taking a deep breath of fresh air or discovering the mountains. Whether in small villages with preserved architecture or on the slopes of the mountains, there are a thousand and one treasures to discover.
