Tour-Guides Tour-guide partners; Détours Pyrénéens, 46 rue de la Tour d’Oléac, 65350 Boulin, Hautes-Pyrénées,  France. Détours Pyrénéens Guides have been exploring and explaining the history of the region’s emblematic monuments and secret places for years. They enjoy informing you about lesser-known but equally fascinating tales and legends.

Visit the main landmark of Lourdes and the goal of thousands of travelers, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. It was built on the very spot where the Virgin Mary first appeared to St. Bernadette. The so-called “Domain” includes two basilicas. The Rosary Basilica (Basilique Rosaire) is built in neo-Byzantine style, and the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (Basilique Supérieure) is a true Neo-Gothic monument. In the immediate vicinity is the Massabielle Grotto (Grotte Miraculeuse) where more than one and a half centuries ago the first healing source was discovered. At present, separate baptismal fonts for men and women are organized here. Bathing remains one of the kindest and most symbolic traditions for travelers.

At the heart of the site is the famous cave of Massabielle, a place full of stories, as well as the basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Discover the Cave of Apparitions and the miraculous water source discovered by Bernadette, the Sainte-Bernadette church, or the impressive basilica Saint-PieX, built underground, which encourages reflection and spreads a sense of serenity. Détours Pyrénéens Guides can help you create your dream tour. Located in Lourdes, Pyrenean culture is flowing through their veins. They guide you around towns such as : Tarbes, Lourdes, Bagnères, Cauterets, Argelès, or Arreau. They also offer the keys to many of the tiny villages lost deep in Pyrenean valleys such as the valleys of Gaves and Adour, or further afield to Aure and Louron, or to Spain, Portugal and/or elsewhere.

Discover the most breath-taking landscapes in the region with the impressive Cirque of Gavarnie, the Peak of Midi or Gaube Lake! Tours are offered in other areas all over the South-West of France, from Bordeaux to Toulouse, and also into Spain and the Basque Country! They offer many ideas for potential excursions so don’ t think twice – come on over and discover the hidden mysteries of the Pyrenees!

As one guide put it; after trekking in the Alps and Himalayas, I finally found my base camp in the Pyrenees, in the land of 2000 lakes. I continue to explore these wonderful mountains as a qualified guide. I was very interested in the rich Pyrenean heritage, as I opened the doors of many churches, and was stunned when I found golden baroque altarpieces and many other fascinating artifacts. It was then that I decided to share my passion for the stories and the history of this land to visitors. After you have experienced the magnificent Pyrenees, you will understand why I never want to change my job! 🙂 Your guides can host groups of up to 50 persons per guide, though 30 or less is the preferred group size. The ideal tour is a 2 ½ hours walking tour of Lourdes, the sanctuary, and Basilicas. A second day’s tour may include visiting the 1000 year-old Le Chateau fort de Lourdes, Bernadette’s home, other pilgrim attractions and a ride up the funicular railway to the Pic De Jer Le Pic du Jer has a large cross and can be accessed by the 100 year-old funicular railway reaching the summit in minutes. The ascent is stunning, taking you through the pine trees and offering magnificent views over Lourdes, Pau, and Tarbes and of course… the Pyrenees. It’s well worth a trip.
