Various sports can be preacticed : VTT – canoe-cayak – treaking – speleologie – or paragliding.
Not forgetting to visit small mountain villages, shepards around the Pic du midi d’Ossau and experiment the « petit train d’Artouste ».

You will not either be disappointed by the local arts and crafts – the Jurançon wine or sheep cheese or pyrenean chocolates and an absolute must : the RUSSE from Artigarède.
