When you stay at our La Mongie self-catering resort in the Hautes-Pyrénées, you have access to loads of different sports and recreational activities for all the family! The neighbouring resort of La Mongie (Grand Tourmalet/Pic du Midi), just a few minutes’ walk, offers a wide variety of activities. Here you will find the starting point for circular hikes, with an overnight stay in a shepherd’s hut or refuge; professionals to take you canyoning, kayaking or rafting; or to guide you around the Pyrenees National Park, Cirque de Gavarnie, the Néouvielle nature reserve or Mont Perdu, a UNESCO World Heritage site. And from the La Mongie cable car, you can make the memorable ascent of the Pic du Midi. Wow! On a clear day, the view of the Pyrenees stretches more than 300 km. On your return from this remarkable location, La Mongie may have a surprise in store: a sheepdog demonstration, pastoral evening or concert.
