    The park covers a surface of more than 45 000 ha for the heart of the Park and about 206000 to the peripheral area that is also part of the Park, all riding on 2 departments, so there is to do and see for everyone if you like nature with a bit of "luck" can be seen even bears , but if this is the case, keep your distance, because it is not fluff.

    What landscapes for those who appreciate them, mountains, forests and waterfalls, Lakes follow one another with happiness, a discovery at the end of each trail, many hikes for all levels, a wild and beautiful nature with a flora and fauna in tune...

    Beautiful area of the Pyrenees, the steep drive up to the parking area itself is lovely. I've there you arrive on a huge parking place, where you can wander up to the tourist information. Here you can buy tickets to get onto a Tele cabin, and a chair lift all the way up to a lake situated higher in the mountains. You can also walk up if you prefer. Dotted around are restaurants where you can buy sandwiches drinks etc. The access is altogether easy, good for kids. The paths are well maintained, nothing to rugged. It looks like it can get busy, touristy, but on our visit it was quiet. Loads of small streams to cool your feet, or for kids to build dams.

    Absolutely amazing. I can't begin to describe how incredible this place is. So so beautiful and the air is noticeably cleaner than anywhere else i have ever been. Stunning. This place is a must see in your lifetime!

    Giving a rating on a macro scale can only be general. So overall it can only be a full 5 star review. Magnificent!

    Impressive views. Nice temperature (in July at least). Interesting local food and drinks, especially the cheese!
