A touch of winter wonder

Sian2

Stay in the charming village of Luz-Saint-Sauveur and explore winter in the Pyrenees every day. Luz gives you access to the valleys of the Toy Country (Barèges, Gavarnie, Luz) and the Lavedan valleys (Hautacam, Val d'Azun, Cauterets) and their many secure paths for snowshoe hikers.

No experience in snowshoes is necessary for this stay: if you can walk, you can walk with snowshoes! Accompanied by an assembly guide, you will discover not only the beauty of the Pyrenean landscapes but also other activities that make these mountains a welcoming place (balneotherapy, Pic du Midi, local market ...)

 

At the end of each day, relax by the fireplace with a hot drink and enjoy the many good local restaurants. Don't forget to go to the balneotherapy in Luzéa!
