The great outdoors, exquisite scenery, wonderful walking or riding the bike. Following the paths of Le Tour de France was sensational.

The Pyrenees are an exceptionally beautiful part of France. Some of the passes are very high and feature in the Tour de France and you can drive over them all and easily access the views and the feeling of timeless wilderness. But if you want to walk there are fabulous short, medium and long distance choices. There are many huts in the mountains where it is possible to have a 3 course lunch! They must be serviced by helicopters as no roads.
The Cirque de Gavarnie is one of the most wonderful places. You can approach it on foot or on donkey. What could be better? You can see lots of flowers and marmots.
This part of France is not as touristy as parts.

Hikers do not have any more to wish once they have arrived in this stunning national parc in the south of France. You can use Cauterets as a base and make day hikes from there. The alternative, walking from mountain hut to mountain hut, is for the adventurous, but it's worth the effort. If you choose one part of the French Pyrenees to visit, then choose this part.

Driving over the French/Spanish border north of Biecas after a morning coffee I was looking forward to a 2 hour walk up a mountain, the scenery is stunning as you cross over into France so take a camera.

I took the path from the car park (the grass verge on the side of the road) with girlfriend and 6 year old daughter, our ascent took almost 2 hours as her legs were half the size of mine. If you are fit and in a rush you could probably get to the summit in 40-60 minutes to be honest.

There are no amenities on site so make sure you stop on the way/way back for food and toilet requirements

I used to live in the Pyrénées and I can only say, I love it much more than any other place in the world. I was living in the Béarn and worked in Lourdes that time. But my days off, I stayed in the nature. Went walking in the national parc with friends to see the waterfalls, the lakes, the mountains, the birds (vultures, buzzards, eagles, etc ...), the wild horses, the sheep and the shepherds, ... it was just so wonderful, amazing people and an absolute beautiful nature. And by this, I want to say such a big thank you to Robert, Viviane, Maité, Frank, etc... for spending so much time with me! I Love you so much!
