Sport, culture, nature: the EU sublimates the Pyrenees

 

Very concrete achievements are being implemented as part of the Destination Unique Sobrarbe Aure Louron (DUSAL), POCTEFA's Hautes-Pyrénées program. In Spain, it has enabled the development of the mountain bike domain in Zona Zero, the development of the Piau-Pineta Nordic area, the creation of a pumptrack in Ainsa... In France, mountain biking has taken on a new dimension with the creation of a huge space and new installations. The cultural and natural heritage of the single destination is also enhanced, with the development of the path to Santiago de Compostela via the GR 105 hiking trail, the enhancement of the natural setting of the Aulon reserve, etc. In the future, the DUSAL will make it possible to create many complementary cross-border tourism products in the sports, natural and cultural sectors. To be continued...

More and more Trail trails to discover

Trail riding is the perfect sport to exercise at high altitude while enjoying exceptional landscapes in the valleys and nature reserves of the Hautes-Pyrénées. The DUSAL program, financed by the European Union, has made it possible to create new trail routes on the territory of Aragnouet, new markings and signs on existing routes. In 2020, an exceptional cross-border trail will be created between Aragnouet and Bielsa. Half French, half Spanish, it is a true symbol of the cooperation between the two Pyrenean neighbours!

Even more beautiful hikes at altitude

Many improvements have been made to make your strolls in the Néouvielle national nature reserve even more enjoyable: installation of picnic tables, reception huts, gazebos, information panels but also signposting of hiking trails and creation of a RV area! In Aulon, in the heart of the natural reserve, go to the new hiking base to discover the pastoral tradition in a unique environment.

Go down the Pyrenean slopes by mountain bike

After the undeniable success of Zona Zero in the Spanish Sobrarbe (which has recently benefited from new facilities), mountain biking is taking on a new dimension in Pyrénées2vallées. Enjoy 21 circuits, 14 trail routes and 3 fun areas as well as the installation of "mountain bike carrier" clamps on the Privilege chairlift at the resort of Peyragudes. Nearly 200km of trails are maintained for maximum comfort and 4 new mountain bike zones will be created: Bielsa, Aragnouet, Saint-Lay and Louron.

For all styles: skateboarding, rollerblading or scootering, enjoy the brand new pumptrack in Aragnouet. In 2020, another pumptrack track will be created in the beautiful village of Aínsa-Sobrarbe.
