Walking

With the guide choosing a walk is easy

The Luchon tourist office has put together a very good guide for walks of all levels in the Luchon area.

It can be downloaded here: www.luchon.com. There are also copies at the gite or the tourist office.

The guide should be used with a proper map. The map of luchon is the IGN 1848 OT.

Take into account the time of year. The high mountains, and even some of the cols on the GR10 can remain snowy well into the summer.

Walks for all levels

The autumn colors around Luchon are spectacular.

The end of September and the first half of October is also the « Brame du cerf » Around sun-set the calls of the stags resonate around the mountains and forests above Luchon.

In winter Luchon is a great base for snow-shoeing and ski mountaineering trips.

The highest summits

If you are looking to push yourself, either going higher, going out in winter or trying a new sport it is a good idea to be accompanied by a professional.
