The Aspe Valley is a landmark destination in the Pyrenees on the GR10 hiking path. It is an absolute must for walking enthusiasts, seasoned sportsmen and pilgrims seeking peace and wide-open spaces before crossing the border into Spain.
The Valley extends for 40km from Escot to the Col du Somport and harbours part of the Parc National des Pyrénées, the fabulous Cirque de Lescun and its peaks like the Aiguilles d’Ansabèreand the Table des Trois Rois. Every day pilgrims cross the valley on their way to Santiago de Compostela (on the Via Tolosana). There are many different footpaths which are passable all year round, with cross-country skiing in winter and paragliding in summer for intrepid visitors, plus rock-climbing sites, popular with expert climbers, at Forêt d’Issaux and Cirque d’Aydius.
