The Pyrenees are truly magnificent and I never tire of them. But to be able to watch them as the sun rises, to see them change colors, from crimson to red, then orange to gold, as the shadows retreat to the hollows of the valleys, is priceless!
And to be able to enjoy these magical moments, there are only two solutions: the mountain refuge or the bivouac.
It’s not a year that I don’t spend a night in a bivouac in the Pyrenees. It’s great this feeling of blending into the surrounding nature and experiencing a convivial, frugal, rejuvenating moment…
During my last short stay in Saint-Lary, I chose an option allowed to everyone to try the adventure of bivouacking in the mountains. The dedicated bivouac area near the lac d’Aubert r gathers every summer evening those who hike the GR10, as well as those who will tackle the slopes of the Pic de Néouvielle in the early morning… or the simple mountain enthusiast.
