Pyrenees National Park
Béarn combines two areas with contrasting relief: the Pyrenees mountain range and its foothills. The mountainous area is marked by deep valleys oriented north-south and traversed by the gaves.
Béarn has three upper valleys that make up Haut-Béarn. This mountainous complex is notably dominated by the Pic du Midi d'Ossau with its 2,884 m. From Laruns, you can also visit Lourdes and its sanctuary (52 km), Spain via the Col du Pourtalet (29 km), the Basque coast with Hendaye, Saint Jean de Luz, Bayonne or Anglet (less than 2 hours drive).
