Une ascension de l'Alburruntz entre couché de lune et levé de soleil, une belle balade au aurore, des couleurs et des lumières qui se réveillent le long du parcours et une vue imprenable sur les Pyrénées. A faire absolument !

Très satisfait de cette balade, l'arrivée au sommet avec le lever du soleil est magique et nous fait oublier le réveil très matinal !
