LE PARC NATIONAL DES PYRÉNÉES 

 

To visit the Bearnese Pyrenees is to enter a protected massif boasting spectacular scenery, a wild kingdom home to unique plant life, as well as over 70 species of animals.

Created in 1967, the Pyrenees National Park strives for a harmonious and sustainable development of our valleys, in a manner respectful of nature and the mountains, but also of the land’s inhabitants and pastoral traditions.

Keep an eye out for the golden eagle, the bearded vulture or the Egyptian vulture up in the air, or a marmot or Pyrenean chamois down below. France’s last bears live here, and their paw prints can sometimes be seen!

 

The Pyrenees National Park is a paradise for hikers. During the summer, thematic outings led by park rangers are organized. You can also call upon the services of a professional mountain guide to discover the park. For more information, don’t hesitate to visit the tourist offices and park information centres in the Ossau and Aspe Valleys.
