Outdoor Pursuits

This area of SW France is extremely beautiful and is lush & green for most of the year - unlike some of the other regions. It offers a wealth of outdoor activities and most are within a 30 min drive. In Oloron there is rafting, kayaking, canyoning, hydro-speed, quad biking and also an indoor national class clmbing wall 19.5 m high. A little further out of Oloron in Arette there are many mountain bike & cycle routes which are also good for raquettes in the winter.

Every year the Tour de France comes to this area of the Pyrenees and there are at least 3 stages from previous years that are within easy reach of the house.
