Led by a guide, you and your whole family or group of friends can take an adventurous trip on one of the many rivers. In many places you can jump from a rock into deeper pools. A lot of climbing, climbing and enjoying the beautiful nature.
A guide can be found in the village or in Luz st Sauveur. We have good experiences with Henri. You get a wetsuit and helmet fitted and leave for a suitable river by 4x4. Take a day out for this.



Paragliding is similar to parachuting, but with a larger parachute / mattress. Because of the large surface area of the parachute you stay in the air much longer than with parachute jumping. Of all flight sports, paragliding is closest to the ideal of flying by itself.

You can do a week-long course (book well in advance at Parapente school Barèges or take a tandem flight. You can book this on the spot.

Bungee Jump

You can jump down from 90 meters to an elastic band at more places, but the location in Luz st Sauveur (10 min) is unique. Napoleon III had this bridge built so that his wife Eugenie could more easily come to the thermal baths in Luz st Sauveur. You can do this in the summer months.

Wild water rafting

From Pierrefitte-Nestalas (20 min) you can raft on wild water. The rivers from different mountain valleys come together there. The river has all difficulty classes (from level II to VI).
