A must visit if you come to Luchon. A paradise at the end of a steep windy road. River us perfect for a paddle. Choose to walk or not or like us have a brilliant crepe and tarte de mirtelle! Yum. Go to this place.☺

Not far from Bagneres-de-Luchon if you have a car (or a good bike), and so worthwhile. We didn't go into the Hospice itself, but the trails are well marked, and the mountains so lush and beautiful that the trails demand to be followed! Some short,...More
