Summer is comming ! This is the perfect time for all nature lovers to go hiking to explore the magnificent Pyrenean landscapes.
Here are some hiking trails that we recommend you to do during your stay at the Carré Py’ Hôtel***:
THE BLUE LAKE OF LESPONNE
The Blue Lake is a site renowned for the beauty of its landscape as well as for its environment.
The hike leading to the Blue Lake offers a varied landscape between forests and waterfalls, with breathtaking views of the high peaks. It takes 4 hours round trip and prefer a departure in the cool of the morning, after enjoying a good breakfast. One last piece of advice to our hiking friends, don’t forget your camera!

It can be reached from Campan or from Asté, whatever the starting point, it takes a good two hours.
