Parc National des Pyrénées

Hiking in the Pyrenees National Park

Of the nine French national parks, it is the most visited.
It is difficult to contain all the natural wonders of this high place in the Pyrenees in a short sentence.
The Garvarnie cirque, the Vignemale and its glacier, the Gaube lake or the Brèche Roland are some of the must-sees on the HexaTrek. A protected natural area, without barriers or fences, it is THE privileged territory of the isard and the marmot.

The most beautiful landscapes of the Pyrenees National Park

The park ensures the preservation of an exceptional biodiversity and allows the Hexatrek hikers to cross a protected and beautiful area.

The Hexatrek itinerary on this section is a gentle mix of the mythical HRP and the GR®10

Cirque de Gavarnie

A unesco World Heritage Site, a hiker's paradise where everyone can experience the power of nature.

With one of the highest waterfalls in Europe (427 metres) at its heart, this colossus of nature surrounded by sixteen peaks over 3,000 metres is stunningly beautiful

The Vignemalle

The highest point in the French Pyrenees, the Pique Longue du Vignemale, more commonly known as the "Vignemale", is a mythical summit that every Pyrenean hiker must climb at least once in their life. 

Its glacier and its particular shape make it a must-see in the hexatrek! 

Reserve of néouvielle

An original landscape of granite massifs and ridges, the Néouvielle Nature Reserve offers an elixir of Pyrenean wonders. The formula of this magical place is exhaustive between lakes, peaks and exceptional vegetation. Hundred-year-old hooked pines and the whistling of marmots permeate this place of fabulous escapades.

Pic du Midi d'ossau

In the Ossau valley, in the pastures or near a lake, your gaze falls on the Pic du Midi d'Ossau... isolated, grandiose from the top of its 2885 metres! 

In the valley, it is nicknamed Jean-Pierre, its characteristic tooth-shaped form distinguishes it from the other summits and attracts all eyes from the plain.

It overhangs and is reflected in the Ayous lakes.
