Backing onto the Spanish canyons of Añisclo, Piñeta and the legendary Ordesa, the Gavarnie-Gèdre region belongs to the “Pyrenees & Monte Perdido corrie & canyon country”, declared UNESCO World Heritage in 1997 thanks to its natural landscapes and cultural wealth.

The exceptional landscapes at the top of the limestone mountains in the Monte Perdido range reach elevations of up to 3,355 metres, and can be admired from both the Spanish and French sides.

Everything about this corrie is spectacular, from its 6.5 km circumference with walls reaching a height of 1,500 metres, to its centrepiece waterfall, one of the tallest in Europe (427 metres).
