The middle-high and high mountains surrounding the valley.

Here you can enjoy a wide range of possibilities. From a family walk to a physically-demanding climb. Middle-high mountains are accessible to anyone who wants to go for a pleasant hike. As soon as we reach the bottom of the valley, summits get higher and should be climbed only by professional hikers. Pic de Hourgade and the 3000-m border crest are good examples.

Several Topoguide® guides show itineraries to reach the summits. Useful reading: “Randonnées et Ascensions dans la Vallée du Louron” (hikes and ascents in Vallée du Louron) by Jean François Rouys, edited by the Tourist Office, for sale in the valley and complementary to the map IGN 25 1848 OT.


There are hikes and routes for all budgets, level of expertise and preferences. From noon outings to several-day raids.. The mountain guides


A selection of ascents, sector by sector.

Here the hiker is responsible for his own safety. Most itineraries are not signposted and often some stretches of the ways are not in good state. Level of expertise, physical condition, equipment and weather forecast do sometimes force hikers to give up.
