Le Cirque de Gavarine is a breathtaking spot formed by glacial erosion. Both immense stretches of land and towering mountains will make you feel small as you admire nature around you. There are amazing waterfalls to see including the second highest in Europe, Gavarnie Falls.

This trail is a nice option to avoid the heavily trafficked main trail that most tourists take to waterfall.

Simply amazing. A must do when in the Pyrenees. Very accesable and doable for families. Added bonus is starting/ending the hike in the village of Gavarnie. There are some decent cafes to strop for a treat at the end of your day.

An amazing hike in the southwest of france! Been here twice and both times it took my breath away. There's a beautiful waterfall at the end of the hike.
