The Pyrenees Animal Park
The Pyrenees Animal Park
Our Park is located in the land of bears, in the heart of the Pyrenees. It presents the animals and birds of our country in vast spaces where, bears, wolves, lynx, chamois, marmots, ibex, deer, otters, squirrels evolve in semi-freedom.
Since 1999, the date of its creation, the Animal Park of the Pyrenees did not seek the constitution of the richest animal collection possible. His choice fell on a new formula of animal park that offers you the opportunity to share the intimacy of animals while maintaining their natural behavior. This vocation has been maintained over the years and the park has continued to grow. Today more than a hundred species share a territory of several hectares on the side of the hill overlooking the valley and opens to the high mountains.
