A real Garden of Eden:
The Pont d'Espagne is one of the more emblematic places in the Pyrenees National Park. The cable-car of Puntas and the Gaube chairlift means one can visit with little effort. There are many walking trails for all levels in a delightful setting of verdant forests, waterfalls and tumbling streams, with superb wild flowers and maybe even the chance to spot an Isard.
The waterfalls trail, a superb walk alongside the river:
This is the classic trail to best disover all the waterfalls which have made Cauterets famous. In the Jeret valley the trail follows the river, along the way you will come close to many fabulous waterfalls including the spectacular Cerisey falls. The path literally follows the edge of the river often through the spray from the falls.
The Estom lake:
A lovely walk following the river in a wild and unspoiled valley to reach the sublime setting of the Estom lake.
The Ilheou lake:
The lake has a wild setting, the grasslands are superb for alpine flowers, the surrounding summits are magnificent. Take a tour of the lake and admire the native rhodedendrons.
A tour of the Cayan plateau:
At the very heart of the National Park this wide grassy valley was once the meeting point for Spanish and French shepherds who traded between themselves. It is a lovely place for a walk, great for a picnic on the water's edge, to chill in the shade of a pine and enjoy the fabulous view.
A picnic at altitude, a unique adventure for families, and suitable from three years of age:
The 'Les Alias' via ferrata at Cauterets offers the unique experience of having a picnic at a table on the rock face, the table is suspended 20 metres above the ground! On this easy route around the via ferrata the picnic table is the ideal spot to take a rest, dangle your legs over the edge and admire the whole of the Cauterets valley. There is space for up to 8 people around the table, bring your own picnic or you can order one locally.
Grab a bite to eat:
At the Bains des Rocher, the Spa Cafe offers a dish of the day and an express pasta service. You can choose between penne, spaghetti or tagliatelli pastas, and bolognaise, salmon, pistou, carbonara, gorgonzola or arrabiata sauces. The cafe's terrace has one of the best views in Cauterets, overlooking the whole village with a fabulous view towards the Vignemale.
The speciality of Cauterets are the berlingots which come in a thousand and one flavours, you can watch them being made in any one of 4 different sweet shops in the town.
