Days out in The Pyrénées

Parc Animalier des Pyrénées

Parc Animalier des Pyrénées, Argels Gazost

This area is home to a whole host of wildlife including bears, wolves, chamois, marmots, lynx, roe-deer, otters, foxes and squirrels. Here you’re guaranteed to get a sighting of animals in their natural habitat.

Pic du Midi Observatory

Pic du Midi Observatory

The views from up here are amazing – whichever way you are looking. From the top of this 10,000 foot mountain you can see for miles in the valley below or you can take a peep at the stars above through the powerful microscope before having a thorough look at your dinner menu in one of the best-located restaurants in the region.

Zoo d’Asson

Zoo d’Asson, between Pau and Lourdes

Many of the 500 animals roam free around this exotic 5 acre site (the friendlier ones we presume).
