Guided walk with a bivouac, watch the sun set over the Pyrenees


The Mont Aspet offers a fabulous view over Nistos. Here the Pyrenees are at your feet, it is the perfect spot for a bivouac. As the sun sets the panorama is constantly evolving in the golden evening light, whilst the horizon ebbs and flows. As night falls a thousand stars become the main attraction, settle into your duvet, sweet dreams. It is a magical moment.
