The pont d'espagne
The Bridge to Gaube lake
Discover one of the most exceptional views of all the Pyrenees !
Located among our neighbors in the Cauterets valley, the Pont d'Espagne is one of the essential destinations in the Pyrenees. Go up on foot or, with the help of a chairlift, discover unforgettable viewpoints, notably that of Lac de Gaube. This viewpoint in the heart of the Pyrenees National Park is accessible to anyone and at any level of walking thanks to the chairlift. So go up with your family to discover beautiful views and relaxing natural places.
As you continue your walk from Lac de Gaube, you can find a collection of walks for all levels that bring you even further to the center of this natural place, such as the one that takes you to the Oulettes refuge and the Oulettes valley. If you're in the mood for a long hike, feel free to look at your route options to explore this place in more depth! From the Pont d'Espagne car park, you can also explore the Marcadau valley and its lakes.
If you plan to go on hikes lasting several days or exploring paths, do not forget to bring an IGN map.
