Let’s go to the Pyrenees! We’ll climb the mountains to the Pic du Midi, where the view of the peaks and stars is breathtaking. In winter, we’ll hit the ski slopes and slalom between the fir trees.
Here, the land is home to France’s largest collection of prehistoric remains, the Cirque de Gavarnie puts out a beautiful display with its waterfall, and bears roam freely.
We’ll walk along part of the St-Jacques de Compostela trail as far as the Lourdes sanctuary, to fully immerse ourselves in the serenity of the place.
Unwind and be dazzled.
