Mines of high mountain in the Val d'AranThe miners of high mountain in the Aran Valley, an ideal family adventure
Mines that they remind us of the mining step of this territory. Roads of miners and smugglers. The “bocard” or laundries. An ideal family adventure to live.
– Victoria mine: Mining of high mountain that has been recovered so we can make a fun hiking route and learn a little more about mining in the area. The route will allow us to discover the harsh working conditions of miners during the first half of the century XX. It is a bucolic route, between meadows, canals, forests of black pine and spectacular views. And at the end, we will enjoy a picnic next to the “raft of Arras” and we will distinguish the offspring of newts (endemic to the Pyrenees) of common tadpoles.
– Liat mines: For photography lovers. The most important mining activity of the Valle de Aran. Today you can visit the complex freely and the infrastructure, including the mine basics elements of working which are still in place, giving us the possibility to imagine all this mining complex in fully operational and in a really fascinating place. You will observe the Liat Long lake to our feet and numerous peaks around with Mauberme, its 2.880m.
