Luz-Saint-Sauveur campsite

Visiting the Hautes-Pyrénées? You’re bound to hear about Luz-Saint-Sauveur, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Pyrénées.

Have you been to Luz-Saint-Sauveur?


A stunning destination. This might be just what you’re looking for on your camping holiday in the Hautes-Pyrénées. But it’s also essential to describe the exact location of Luz-Saint-Sauveur. Given that the village is nestled between the Pyrénées National Park and the Néouvielle massif, the surrounding landscape is simply magical.

No matter which way you turn, you’ll find breathtaking scenery. This makes Luz-Saint-Sauveur a must-visit destination for all nature enthusiasts. A place where holidaymakers come to “go green”. The destination’s proximity to nature makes it possible to try many different activities.


During the winter, skiing and winter sports take precedence. But the resort has just as much to offer on sunny days. During the warmer seasons, skiing and snowboarding are replaced by hiking and cycling. Tour de France fans like to pedal up to Luz-Ardiden to imitate their idols and push their limits.

Last but not least, Luz-Saint-Sauveur is also a spa destination. For both health and wellness purposes, the town is one of the leading places for spa treatments in the Pyrénées. Indulge yourself in the waters’ natural benefits.


Did you know…?


While Luz-Saint-Sauveur has all the advantages of a Pyrenean winter sports resort, it also has a medieval past, rare in this type of destination. You can admire the ruins of Château Sainte-Marie, which was once a place of refuge for the local population. The building was occupied by the Knights Hospitaller, members of the Order of St John of Jerusalem.

Situated at the summit of a rocky outcrop, its position was obviously strategic. Today, it offers visitors a pleasant view of the village and the surrounding valleys. It is now listed as Monument Historique (historical monument) in France.

Another interesting fact: the Templar church... was not actually built by the Templars. The local population has long believed this. Like the château, for that matter.




Whatever your preference of activity for a camping holiday, Luz-Saint-Sauveur has something for you.

As explained above, cycling and mountain biking enthusiasts have the perfect playground to explore as they pedal. Follow in the footsteps of legends like Miguel Indurain and climb to Luz-Ardiden. Afraid you might not be fit enough? No need to panic! You can also hire electric bikes. Just as much fun as a traditional bike, but you’ll have more energy to admire the scenery.


Luz-Saint-Sauveur, like any other Pyrenean resort, is an excellent spot for hiking. Explore the signposted paths of Pays Toy, where you can discover the natural beauty of both the mountains and the valley. In addition, some of the routes have fun elements. During your walk, you might come across selfie posts, poems and even quizzes. A nice touch, which adds originality.

Would you prefer an adrenalin rush? No problem. There are plenty of ways to achieve that! The first is to take the plunge… and bungee jump! Alternatively, you could try canyoning and rafting, for a cooler, more refreshing option.

And after a busy day, switch off completely with a moment of relaxation. Immerse yourself in the thermal baths and enjoy the soothing effects of their warm water. Beneficial for both the mind and body.
