Summer activities

The Louron valley offers a real festival of activities during the summer months that can be experienced on your own or with friends or family.

Discover the mountain area by hiking the officially marked trails or with a local mountain guide and take advantage of “Trail routes'' suitable for any level. You can also climb in the high mountains with  “guides de Haute Montagne“ (High Mountain guides).

Here, cycling in all its forms takes centre stage : cycle the mythical passes of the Tour de France or take your mountain bike on the Cross-country, Enduro or Gravel tracks located on the 420 km of marked tracks accredited by the French Cycling Federation.

Prefer to have your head in the clouds? Fly tandem on a paragliding taster ! Up,up and away!!

Cool off by the water’s edge, in the “Ludéo” outdoor swimming pool, by the lake at the “Aquaparc du Louron '' water park, on a boat at the watersports centre or just go fishing. For the more athletic, try a whitewater activity or canyoning.

Fun and laughter are guaranteed for young and old alike, with outdoor activities such as: mini-golf, downhill scooter, paintball, “go ape” tree adventures, quad biking...

And to finish on a more relaxing note which combines well-being, spa treatments and thermal bathing experiences from around the world, head to Balnéa.

 

 

 

For those who dream of flying, our valley can also be explored by paraglider! This is why the resort’s “free flight” area is one of the most famous in France. From Peyragudes to Val Louron, a dozen take-off sites crisscross the valley to meet at a single landing point: the Lac de Génos-Loudenvielle plain. Its spacious landing zone makes Louron a highly attractive site for free flight enthusiasts but also an ideal place for a tandem paragliding taster. Two paragliding schools and independent instructors offer tasters open to anyone over 5 years old as well as beginner and advanced courses on both sides of the valley. Find our professionals here
