The turquoise-blue waters of Gaube Lake are surrounded by intensely beautiful Pyrenean peaks over 2,000 m (6,560 ft) above sea level. Getting to the lake is an adventure in itself. First, park your car in the free parking lot, then ride the green cable car from Puntas to the Clot plateau. Next, ride the chairlift up to the lake. If you prefer to walk, hike for an hour on the trail that starts at the foot of the bridge. The trail is also enjoyable by horseback; horse rentals are available in town. The top end of the valley leading to the lake is closed off by the north face of Vignemale, the culmination of France's border with Spain. Using our international travel planner, Cauterets attractions like Gaube Lake can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Absolutely stunning scenery, accessible from Pont d'Espagne by a relatively easy walk (about 1 hour) or a cable car. You will be greeted by a beautiful lake surrounded by sharp mountains that make for an incredible view. The café there is a good place for a coffee and ice cream before heading back down. Beware the toilets, however!
