Fabrèges Lake

The Fabrèges dam lake is located at the foot of the village of Fabrèges-Artouste (commune of Laruns). It is located in the heart of the National Park and is a popular place for hiking.

The Way to Mature

The chemin de la Mature is a unique, vertiginous place. To access it, you must once again lace up your sneakers and set off for a masterful photo. Located in the Aspe Valley, it is dug into the rock and allows you to reach the Fort du Portalet on its way. Don't look down!

Wildlife photography in the Aspe Valley

The Vallée d'Aspe is one of the three main valleys in Béarnaise. They extend to the foot of the Pyrenees and form an exceptional natural environment. Here is an ideal site to do an animal photo report and steal some unusual images of wildlife. It is a valley steeped in pastoral tradition. Children will also enjoy observing farm animals and herds in the pastures. Its villages are very authentic. They have a lot of charm and character. We recommend Borce, a charming town, which offers all kinds of family and fun activities.

On the heights of Laruns

Laruns is a pretty little village typical of the Béarn mountains. In the Vallée d'Ossau, it offers a very scenic landscape, with the village nestled in the heart of a steep mountainous relief.

Several roads like that of Cujala, around the village, allow you beautiful photos, depending on the position of the sun!
