The birds of prey offer a beautiful aerial ballet in the blue Pyrenean skies. In the meadows the marmots are playing, accompanied by their concert of whistling. On the rocky slopes look out for the agile Isard. Here you are in the very heart of the Pyrenees National Park, opposite is the majestic Cirque de Gavarnie, a World Heritage site. Nature invites you and your family to the greatest show on earth!
