Saint-Lary-Soulan: The Must-Do Activities

Saint-Lary-Soulan: What to do when you get there?

Discover what to do in Saint-Lary-Soulan! One of the most beautiful resorts in the Pyrenees offers you an extraordinary journey full of emotions thanks to the many activities on offer!

Born in 1963 from the merger between the town of Saint-Lary and Soulan, the resort of Saint-Lary-Soulan has been popular with Pyrenean skiers for many years. A town of workers, the mayor at the time decided to develop tourism around his village by creating a ski resort. Back in 1957 and the inauguration of the first cable car in Saint-Lary: the Pic de Lumière cable car, this infrastructure marked the beginning of the history of winter tourism. Shortly after the merger of the two villages, the resort of Saint-Lary-Soulan was lucky enough to host the French Olympic team in preparation for the 1968 Grenoble Winter Olympics. This was a golden opportunity that made Saint-Lary-Soulan known throughout France.

Situated on the Spanish border, Saint-Lary-Soulan benefits from the Néouvielle Nature Reserve for its ski area with more than 100km of pistes! Facing the Massif de la Néouvielle, the resort has an incredible natural setting thanks to the Aulon regional nature reserve which surrounds Saint-Lary-Soulan as well as all the neighbouring lakes such as Cap-de-Long, Orédon, Aubert or Oule.

Throughout its history, the resort has always put ecology and respect for nature at the centre of its development. With more than 80% of the communal land classified as a natural park or reserve, Saint-Lary-Soulan has been awarded the Quality Environment label thanks to its ISO 14001 certification. One of the village's greatest prides is their gondola line, which has reduced the resort's carbon footprint enormously by reducing vehicle traffic.

Now that you know everything, all you need to know is what to do in Saint-Lary-Soulan! In summer and winter alike, the resort offers a wide range of activities that will delight young and old alike.

During the summer, Saint-Lary-Soulan has many canyons and white water rivers and offers many canyoning, rafting and via ferrata circuits. Enough to go on an adventure several times for the most daring! If you want to stay in the Pyrenean heights, get on a mountain bike or a mountain scooter and ride on the bike park and its 10 tracks which can reach 2215m of altitude. On your return to the village, discover activities such as golf, with an 18-hole course a few kilometres from Saint-Lary-Soulan, tennis or axe throwing in the Louron valley. Finally, if all these activities are not enough for you, climb the trees on an accrobranche course which will delight adults and children alike!

When jackets and hats are out, Saint-Lary-Soulan adapts its range of outdoor activities to please everyone. On land, in the air and even in the water, you are bound to find something to suit you in the long list of activities on offer! Go to the foot of the slopes to ski or snowboard in the Saint-Lary-Soulan ski area. Besides, who says you have to be on the slopes? Then go on an adventure during off-piste excursions for maximum thrills! Take off your skis and put on snowshoes for a hike in the Néouvielle nature reserve to discover the resort as you've never seen it before with breathtaking views of the Massif de Néouvielle. And if you just don't want to walk, then let the sled dogs pull you along and just enjoy the scenery.
Off the slopes, Saint-Lary-Soulan offers you the chance to try some unusual activities such as zip-lining through the snow-covered forest or climbing an ice fall! For even more frosty activities, discover winter canyoning in the Aure valley. If you want to take to the skies of the Pyrenees, go parachuting from Sailhan, 5km from Saint-Lary-Soulan, and admire the beauty of the resort's surroundings! At the end of the day, after having done all the activities on offer, rest at the village SPA to be ready to go on adventures the next day!

From now on, you won't be able to ask yourself what to do in Saint-Lary-Soulan given the number of activities on offer! But you will have to choose which one to start with!

Although there was not a lot of snow originally, we had a great time and made the best of it!

Kids (both 15) loved it. It's a proper gorge with deep pools and high waterfalls, all safely negotiated with an experienced instructor.

Avoir pu réaliser de raquette m’a permis de me dépasser physiquement dans un lieu idyllique avec toutes perte de notion de la vie de tout les jours.
