Hautacam, a mountain resort in the Pyrenees, is opening its doors (or rather its slopes) for you this summer, with a series of outdoor activities. If you were wondering what to do this summer, no need to look any further. Head over to Hautacam!
What does summer in Hautacam look like?
Rediscover your favourite resort… without the snow! If the landscape is very different, so are the activities! The resort is transformed into a real leisure park for the greatest pleasure of young and old alike, with a wide range of activities. Up there, there is something for all tastes and especially for all ages. It even happened that some adults fell back into childhood…
The Hautacam leisure park opens its doors from 1st July to 31st August 2021 from 11am to 7pm. One of the main activities for children at the Hautacam mountain resort (older children have access too, don’t worry!) is the mountain sledge, available from 3 years old.
A 800-metre descent that will give you unique sensations in a dream setting. For the less adventurous, or for those who wish to contemplate the scenery, the speed can be regulated to make the most of the rail sliding experience.
Mountain activities that bring smiles to the faces of young and old at Hautacam
Electrically powered machines such as tractors, motorbikes, quads and baggies are also available on safe tracks! An ideal opportunity to clear your head by climbing aboard one of these machines and hurtling down the tracks.
Talking about downhill, do you happen to know the so-called déval’kart? We can explain. It looks like a simple little car with four wheels, but it’s much more than that! This little machine is all-terrain and allows you to hurtle down the slope at full speed. This activity is also available for children over 1.30m during the two summer months (July and August).
The Sherpa is also one of the most popular activities at the Hautacam mountain resort during the summer season! This machine will amaze you as it is a combination of a scooter and a bike. But the result is worth the surprise! Equipped with a helmet and protective gear, you will be ready to ride down the track provided for this purpose. Don’t worry, you can use the ski lifts to go back up the slope.
On Tuesday evenings, you can enjoy activities such as astronomy evenings where you can gaze at the stars in the Pyrenean sky, go tobogganing until 10pm, or attend concerts in the restaurant. It promises to be a great time to be shared!
The tacam, this summer’s novelty
The novelty of this summer on the resort of Hautacam, is the implementation of a local currency. To simplify payment and make it fun, the Pyrenean mountain resort is innovating with a local currency. You will no longer exchange euros but tacams to participate in the activities of your choice.
The Pyrenean mountains: breathtaking landscapes
Hautacam is a small paradise for lovers of wide open spaces and leisure activities. No need to look for the performance stage, it’s right in front of your eyes! Whether you are on foot or by bike, take the time to look around you 360°. The Pyrenean mountains are full of surprises and treasures to discover. Stroll along the lakes, paths and trails and breathe in the fresh air of Hautacam.
The Lac d’Isaby, for example, is an easy family hike that can be started from the Hautacam mountain resort. It allows you to discover the joys of hiking without excessive effort. And the result is well worth the effort. The arrival at the lake will bring you a little fresh air during the beautiful summer days. Along the way, you may be lucky enough to come across cows, horses or sheep in summer pasture.
