Airotel Pyrenees Campsite

Airotel Pyrenees Campsite

The Airotel Pyrénées campsite at Luz St Sauveur is popular with nature lovers, and is in a great position from which to discover the wonders of the Pyrénées with many walks nearby, making it one of the most popular campsites in France.

The Pyrénées mountains are quieter and wilder than the Alps - you can hike for miles and not see another person, and you will see lots of wildlife. You will find great food in the area - traditional hearty mountain food with some Spanish influences. Airotel Pyrénées is one of the most popular French campsites in the Pyrénées and is set in the very heart of the mountains on the edge of a National Park, at the foot of some of the most spectacular Pyrénéan passes.

There is a wide range of accommodation with Eurocamp, from stylish Safari Tents to fully equipped Mobile Homes and luxurious Mountain Lodges. The parc has four swimming pools and a sauna, and you’ll also find a good choice of restaurants in Luz St. Sauveur (0.5 km), which is an attractive mountain resort and spa town.

En Chene et Frene High Ropes Courses

With two easier high ropes courses for children and 2 other courses - one of medium ability and one for the more adventurous.

Flying foxes of various heights - called "Tyroliennes from 10 to 80 metres. And one very difficult high ropes course with two mega tyroliennes traversing the "gave" de Gavarnie river - 340m in length and more than 50 metres high. So something to suit everyone! Personally I will stay in the coffee shop!!

Open April to August
