Running along the Spanish border, the Pyrénées National Park offers a wealth of biodiversity and a variety of landscapes and activities.

A real condensation of the Pyrenees that stretches over six valleys, criss-crossed by 450 km of paths! An ideal destination for hikers in love with conserved natural heritage and mountains.

The Pyrénées National Park has highly varied landscapes, forged by time and human activities: from the Cirques of Gavarnie and Troumousse, listed as UNESCO world heritage sites, to the impressive Balaïtous and Néouvielle ranges, from the extinct Pic du Midi d’Ossau volcano to the tumbling waterfalls and mountain streams of the Cauterets Valley, dominated by Mount Vignemale, the highest peak in the French Pyrenees,

It also hosts remarkably rich flora and fauna. Many emblematic flowers and other plant species can be observed. Its wildlife is as diverse as it is fragile: the Pyrenean Chamois, symbol of the Pyrenees, the Iberian Ibex, reintroduced in 2014, the Bearded Vulture, France’s biggest raptor, the Desman, an endemic aquatic mammal, the Brown Bear …

Hiking in summer or winter, moving from place to place or radiating from a single base, in the heart of the national park, discovering the great Pyrenean passes by bike, Esprit parc breaks are as varied as the landscapes and biodiversity that you will be able to observe!

Our work is involved in the preservation of the arae and its history because we make sure that our design reflects the area’s identity. The area is our source of inspiration, everything that surrounds us allows us to create our collections, our patterns, our products.
