Hike: Pont D’Espagna to Frutiere by Vignemale

This is an AMAZING hike. If you only have time for one (long) hike, do this one.
It starts at Pont D’Espangna and goes through Lac De Gaube, Refuge Des Oulettes, Lac D’Estom and ends in Frutiere! So basically, you get to see most of the big attractions in the same day.
Duration: 8-10 hours
Difficulty: Medium

Here’s a little map that shows the general route if you follow the directions above:

The entire hike is absolutely gorgeous! Definitely save this hike for a sunny day so that you can see Vignemale without it being covered by clouds. Vignemale is now one of our favorite mountains, so rugged looking!

Here are some pictures from our hike:
