  • Pont d'Espagne are waterfalls located near Cauterets town, in French Pyrenees, in the South of France, near the border with Spain. It is a touristic zone, where you can come with the family and stay.....  more »
  • We had an excellent lunch there earlier this week, very good service in a magical setting after a trek in the mountains.  more »
  • Amazing place for a walk until Lac Gaube, about one hour walk plus 45min back. Amazing views. Not hard.  more »
  • Simply stunning. Breathtaking cable car ride, eerily blue lake, good facilities with friend 3 and helpful staff. It was a 3 hour detour that was well worth it.
  • Stunning place - visited at the end of August and the waterfall was beautiful. If possible visit also lac de guap. This will make a fabulous day out
  • This is a beautiful place and is highly recommended. We only went as far as the bridge and waterfall which are stunning. No doubt the lake is equally magnificent. We had lunch in the restaurant at the bridge which was delicious with excellent service thrown in.
  • Well worth the trek. Breathtaking. You really need to watch kids if you have them. Lots of cliffs and potential falls as snow drifts above walls and safety barriers.
  • Take the walk up to Lac du Gaube. A hard walk but very rewarding.
