Welcome to the Upper Louron Valley
What to do in Loudenvielle
Modernity and authenticity
In winter, the exceptional panorama that emerges towards the high mountains and the emblematic snow-capped peaks leaves speechless. The practice of activities such as dogsledding, snowshoeing, fun sledges … still sublimates this setting.
In the summer, the Louron Valley, labeled as a hiking resort, reveals its wonders throughout the walks. Mountain biking is featured with more than 400 km of marked paths in Enduro or Cross-country as well as all other activities such as scooter descent, paragliding, navigation on the lake, etc. to achieve alone, with family or friends.
The Skyvall in winter allows skiers to access the ski slopes of Peyragudes very easily and in a few minutes -slope Peyresourde- whatever the state of the road. In winter and summer, this valley lift is open to hikers, mountain bikers, paragliders and pedestrians, widening their playground.
After a day of outdoor activities, comfort! A wellness moment in Balnéa, a real invitation to relax in thermal water in all the baths of the world.
Not forgetting the restaurants that allow you to discover the gastronomic richness of the Pyrenees and our local producers who bring to life the heritage and the lake of Genos-Loudenvielle that invites you to a change of scenery.
