Wilde Pyrenäen – Berge des Lichts

Along a distance of 400 km steep mountains, lush forests, waterfalls and mountain lakes extend in the pristine Pyrenean landscape between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The sun and the clouds play with the light of the mountains, they paint magic pictures, hour per hour, every day - new and breathtaking. The influence of the Mediterranean climate enchants the pastures into a sea of flowers, and provides an extremely rich biodiversity. In the French “Cirque de Gavarnie”, the marmots raise their offspring, and the bears wander through the gorge of Aran. Every day, the bearded vultures control their huge territories in the mountain wilderness, sailing in the sky, searching for their prey.
