No trip to south west France would be complete without visiting the spectacular Pont d'Espagne. Magnificient all year round, it is accessible by car or day-trip with local tours from Lourdes, from the village of Cauterets. A windy mountainous road with stunning views winds its...More

A very nice hike with views of mountains, a stream running right by, flocks of sheep and lots of other hikers. The bridge itself is nice and, as is normal in French National Parks, a good cafe to rest in. We didn't have time to...More

All info is in French so if you don’t know your French read the history before you go. Directions are not clear, so watch closely so you don’t end up on a one hour hike somewhere in the mountains.

We had to ski here as Cauterets was shut due to too much snow. Pont d’Espagne is beautiful, well worth going just to for the breathtaking scenery. The runs aren’t the most challenging but the views make it worth it. I’m so pleased Cauterets was...More

We went as a day trip from Cauterets. It is really easy as there is a regular shuttle bus and the journey takes about 20mins. We decided to go for a tour snowshoeing which I think it one of the best ways to see Pont...More
