Since 2009, the Parc Naturel des Pyrénées Ariègeoises has been protecting an exceptional ecosystem (from the peaks of the Spanish and Andorran borders to the foothills and pre-Pyrenean plain) and enhancing our inhabited areas. This beautiful natural environment is home to many species specific to our territory, some of which are threatened. With a little patience and silence, you’ll be able to observe them on your walks: Isard, Bearded Vulture, Pyrenean Desman and Euproctus, Capercaillie, Pyrenean Lily, etc.
The PNR is here to ensure the harmonious development of flora and fauna with our human activities, from pastoralism to habitat management. Prehistoric and historic sites abound. It’s all there for memorable experiences: beautiful places and beautiful stories!”
Besides, the PNR knows how to let you experience nature in real life: workshops, animations, guided outings, sporting activities are regularly organized by the park houses. They’ll share their love of our superb region with you, and you’ll leave with your heart and soul nourished by beautiful moments!
