Description
Waypoints (15)

La région d’Ayous, en Occitanie, est l’une des plus belle du Béarn. La randonnée vers le lac Gentau et le refuge d’Ayous est une étape indispensable lors d’un voyage dans la vallée d’Ossau. Le randonnée en boucle permet de côtoyer les différents lacs et de ne pas emprunter le même chemin au retour. On vous conseille cependant d’avoir un minimum de condition physique et de ne pas oublier la crème solaire, la bouteille d'eau, le chapeau et surtout les bonnes chaussures de randonnée.

HikingGreat!

Très nombreux points de vue à couper le souffle et différents les uns des autres. On ne se lasse pas. Les lacs sont tous aussi très beaux et on côtoie plusieurs sommets d’assez près. Nous avons croisé chevaux, vaches et brebis. Pas mal de montées, chemins parfois très caillouteux mais avec une bonne paire de chaussures (baskets trail pour ma part) et des bâtons de marche c’est agréable. Avec arrêt pique nique, baignade dans le lac Gentau et beaucoup d’arrêts photos, nous avons mis 9h depuis le parking tout en bas (en dessous du lac de Bious Artigues)

Great hike with beautiful views! A must do when in the area. You can swim in the refreshing lakes. We went clockwise and had lunch at the refuge (bring cash). We arrived at 8:30 at the lower big parking. There is 1 higher up at the lake, this one gets full at around 9:00 (saves 30min walking out & back). We did this hike on a Wednesday during the summer holiday.

Les points de vues durant toutes la randonnée sont splendides et le trajet se fait aisément dans la journée avec des pauses baignades dans les lacs.
