Take wonderful walks in the spectacular mountain regions, strolling through meadows, picnicking by crystal-clear streams, waterfalls and mountain lakes, or even scaling peaks.
Encounter the region's abundant wildlife. On the highest slopes you may spot a herd of goat-like Pyrenean chamois, or isard, with small pointed horns. There are also deer, wild boar, foxes, marmots and even a small number of very shy bears! Look up and you may see the impressive griffon vulture circling overhead.
Explore fascinating prehistoric caves, great castles, and beautiful Romanesque churches and monasteries. Discover pretty towns and villages, with wonderful markets of local produce.
If you are feeling energetic, go mountain biking, horse-riding or paragliding.
In summer, you may be lucky and catch a festival, with processions and street parties, or even a glimpse of the world’s most famous bicycle race, the Tour de France.
