Train de la Rhune

Le 27/08/19 à 11:23

10 km from Saint Jean de Luz, between Ascain and Sare, is the mythical peak of the Basque Country: La Rhune. You will succeed thanks to the little train of La Rhune, one of the few rack and pinion railways in France still in service. In 35 minutes, in its perfectly restored period carriages, it takes you to the summit at an altitude of 900 metres where you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Pyrenees chain to the ocean. There are pottoks or free ewes that will particularly seduce children. You can also buy souvenirs or eat in Spanish ventas, small shops located on the French-Spanish border. Recently, during the summer season, yoga sessions and "sunset evenings" have been planned. And for the bravest, equipped with good sports shoes, a one and a half hour walk down a marked path to the station is possible, allowing you to discover the flora and fauna, with a splendid view.
