Bordeaux & Aquitaine


Pyrénées-Atlantiques, the westernmost section of the mountain range divided between France, Spain and Andorra

It’s home to sea and mountains, so you can both swim and ski here. You can swim in the mountain lakes or just enjoy the staggering scenery. Le Petit Train de la Rhune funicular railway, takes you up the 995m mountain of the same name, topped by a radio tower, from which you have incredible views of the mountains and ocean. When the train coming down and the train going up cross, the drivers and conductors get out to have a little chat and shake hands. Take warm clothing as it can be chilly at the top.
