Jurancon Wine tasting routes

The Bearnese Pyrenees are home to exceptional birds of prey, including bearded vultures, griffon vultures, Egyptian vultures and eagles.

Certain species once threatened with extinction have seen their numbers increase. Indeed, it has become commonplace to see circling above the valleys of the Bearnese Pyrenees one of France’s largest birds of prey: the bald vulture. This bird, with a 2.5-metre wingspan, lives in colonies, nesting on cliffs. It drifts above pastures searching for carrion, both dead wild animals and injured sheep. Bald vultures are the “refuse collectors” of the mountains. It can also be seen gliding over the villages, as can the Egyptian vulture. The appearance of this little migrating vulture signals the return of spring. Its yellow head and its white wings with black borders have earned it the nickname “Maria Blanca” in the Pyrenees. The Bearnese valleys are fortunate to welcome this vulture whose numbers are dropping in the rest of Europe. It’s always a thrill to catch sight of them circling overhead.

Sauveterre de Bearn Spa Town

Bayonne-Anglet-Biarritz-St Jean de Luz

Espelette

Instead of returning from St Jean Pied de Port on the main road, take the D117 or D19. We have travelled the D117 & D19 through the winter months when they quiet, problem in a car is the roads are narrow & it is differcult to pass on coming traffic so I recommend it for motorcyclist and cyclist. The views are well worth the trip.

Cyclist> 3 circular routes from Lae de Haut. Cyclist now can take their cycles on the train to Bedous & ride round the beautiful village of Lescun and other villages in the Aspe Valley
