Trip Info

For those who love hiking tours, this journey is made for them. Over seven days, enjoy travelling over the iconic valley of the Ossau Valley. Its famous peak, at 2,884 meters, a remnant of a volcano, reveals lavish and diverse landscapes. You will also have the chance to meet and spend time with shepherds of the unspoiled mountain.

We head to Laruns in Ossau Valley with time to explore the village. We will have two overnight stays in a local hostel. In the morning, we visit a small corner of the valley, Lake Montagnon. On day three, we climb from Lake Bious Artigues until Bious and then continue on to Lake Castereau. We then reach the refuge of Ayous.

For an easy path the next day, we bypass the beautiful Lake Ayous before descending to the hut Cap Punt. We head to Lake Peyret and have overnight at the refuge Pombie.

In the morning, we cross the Col de Suzon before flying to Pico Cherue nosu, which offers superb views of the surrounding peaks. On the way down, we go to the cabin Magnabaigt where you can taste the famous Ossauiaty. The shepherds will be keen to share about their lives in isolation on their mountains.

The next day will see us take the little train of Artouste, an exceptional course mountainside Sousséou the valley to 2,000 meters latitude. We will hike to the lake basin of Arrémoulit. We will return to Laruns for our last night.

After breakfast, we return to Bourisp.

Your adventure awaits!
