PYRINEUM, TOURIST HUB
Pyrineum is located at the foot of the Pyrenees, in a spectacularly beautiful natural setting with cultural attractions, in a bordering land between France and Spain.
Specifically, we are located in Lumbier (insert map), next to the gorge that shares its name, at the gateway of the valleys of Roncal and Salazar, bordered with Aragon. Pilots that land on our facilities are very close to the first glacial valley of the Pyrenees, Belagua, or the vast karst massif of the Natural Reserve of Larra. From the air we are also just moments away from the Javier Castle, the millennial Leyre Monastery, the Yesa Reservoir and the Mallos de Riglos.
The Navarran Pyrenees take up the western third of this mountain range, which gently descends from east to west until it reaches the sea. They are accessible mountains, ideal for exploring the impressive forests and admiring gorges such as that of Lumbier, with 150-metre walls, or the nearby gorge of Arbaiun, almost 6 km long and with a slope of up to 300 metres. It is a natural territory par excellence that has been able to preserve its traditions and culture.
