Lots to do … Pays Toy activities
Our beautiful local area is called the Pays Toy, there are many activities to be enjoyed.
We will help you to organise any of the following Pays Toy activities –
White-water rafting along our local river, the Gave de Pau. From seven years of age, whole or half-day trips.
Visit the Pic du Midi (above) by cable car for the best view in France — most of the Pyrenees and a fifth of the land area of France!
The Pic du Midi is a working stellar observatory. It was from the Pic that the Americans mapped the moon, the on-site museum will explain all.
