An absolute favourite spot for skiers in the winter, and for mountain and hiking lovers the rest of the year, the Pyrenees mountains offer a multitude of possibilities for activities ... and vacation types. Why not stay in a Pyrenees campsite in the valley, or in the heart of a natural park for example?
Wellness camping in the Pyrénées
Looking for a relaxing break? Our Wellness campsites offer several packs and programs that are affordable and will leave you wanting for more. Camping La Pène Blanche located in Loudenvielle in the Hautes-Pyrénées department suggests you take a Japanese or Scandinavian baths: a heated outdoor swimming pool or a sauna session with a view over the mountain tops. Pretty nice right ? To keep running that same self-care feeling, our campsites organizes yoga, relaxation etc sessions. If you're traveling with your family and want to keep your children busy during these, they can join our creative, fun or educational, adapted workshops.
When the weather is nice, camping in the Pyrenees offers you countless opportunities for walks and hikes, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned hiker. Discover, for example, the lakes of Oô or Aagalops, whose crystal-clear waters reflect the peaks that surround them as if it were a genuine mirror. Unforgettable landscapes, unforgettable pictures in your mind !
In the evening, have a quiet meal in your mobile home, or, even more relaxing if you don't want to cook during your break from your everyday routine, at the campsite's restaurant to taste local dishes, cooked with fresh, local products.
The Pyrénées for a wellness vacation
The Ariège department is also a potential destination for you with camping La Vacance Malazéou. Ariège is just as authentic a department as the Hautes-Pyrénées, which means it will allow you to hike and discover the natural park of the Ariège Pyrenees for example. Moreover, the central Pyrenees, in which the Wellness destinations invite you to stay, will introduce you to many typical villages, majestic natural sites and other points of interest. The Pic du Midi may not be the range's highest peak but it is THE most famous and offers the opportunity for a magnificent excursion, all the way to its observatory. The hiking trails, through the Vignemale massif, or towards the many high mountain lakes, such as Lac de Peyrelade, would be far too many to list. We also recommend stopovers in the small towns of Bagnères de Luchon or Bagnères de Bigorre, pleasant and dynamic when the sunny days return..
Discovering a new territory also means discovering its gastronomy of course! In this case, a cuisine as rich as it is simple, with dishes such as garbure, a tasty soup perfect for long winter evenings (or after a tough summer hike!). try other specialties such as Tarbes beans and black pig of Bigorre. Do not overlook the many cheeses produced onsite by the shepherds - it would also take too long to mention them all Those with a sweet tooth should definitely try "gâteau à la broche".
Why not cross the border and spend a day on the Spanish side during your camping trip in the Pyrenees? There too, there is no shortage of places of interest, among which, in particular the Ordesa National Park or Monte Perdido, suitable for beautiful hikes.
Both Tarbes and Pau, quite closeby, have an airport with a few international routes. You'll definitely have more options if you land in Toulouse, the region's largest city (the 4th most important in France). Whatever your "playground" of choice, Hautes-Pyrénées, Ariège or even the Spanish side, the Pyrenees offer a relaxing and spectacular setting that will certainly make the best impact on your mind, body and soul!
