Pyrenees National Park - Tourism in the Hautes-Pyrénées

Rich in exceptional flora and fauna, the Pyrenees National Park stretches over 45,700 hectares in the south-west of the Hautes-Pyrénées département and the south-east of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques. A paradise for walking fans, the Pyrenees National Park features a vast network of hiking trails. This wild and unspoiled area is home to the highest summits of the French Pyrenees and no fewer than 230 high-altitude lakes!

To find out more about this protected natural area, the Park's visitor centres (Maisons du Parc) located in Arrens-Marsous, Cauterets, Luz-Saint-Sauveur, Gavarnie, Saint-Lary-Soulan in the Hautes-Pyrénées, and Etsaut and Laruns in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, have a wealth of information available for visitors and organise permanent and temporary exhibitions relating to the mountains throughout the year.
