An exhuberant natural world

Advised by Monique , Holiday planner

From the village of Cauterets a number of very pleasant footpaths offer the visitor the possibility of escaping into the middle of a remarkable natural world - dense forests, waterfalls, rushing streams, mountain lakes, flower filled meadows. There is much flora and fauna to be observed, look out for the Isard, which is heavily protected here. Despite its distance from the Spanish border Pont d’Espagne owes its name to the fact that it is on an ancient mule route across the border. It is a remarkable site of a great natural beauty and is one of the most visited in the Pyrenees.
