Camping L'Arriou, in the Hautes-Pyrénées, is named after the word for river in local dialect: Arriou.

Soak up everything our Bigorre land and culture has to offer during your stay. There are countless hikes suitable for all levels of ability so you’re bound to meet the local marmots, izards and maybe even cows, llamas and horses.

Experience something new and take a big gulp of fresh Hautes-Pyrénées air as you gaze at the world’s most stunning views from Pic du Midi or visit Lourdes, famous for its grotto and miracles.

Step into a wonderland at Payolle Lake near the campsite. The 10ha artificial lake lies at the foot of Aspin Hill in one of the most beautiful pine forests in the Pyrenees. Payolle Lake is the perfect place to get active: mountain biking, orientation courses, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, horse and pony riding, paragliding, fishing and sailing!

Be sure to visit the nearby Médous grottoes.
