Le pont suspendu d'Holzarte

  • English
    • Suspended 150 m above the void, the Holzarté bridge is the most spectacular of all you can meet between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean! Accessible after a hike of about an hour, the suspension bridge jumps over 70 m into the canyon of Olhadubi to reach the other bank. The panorama is breathtaking, you don't have to be dizzy to cross so much you have the impression of walking in a vacuum.

      History: The suspension bridge is a technical work which dates from 1920. It was built by Italian workers who were employed in the workshops of the Lombardi Morello steelworks in Tardets. It allowed lumberjacks to cross the other bank and quickly reach the cutting sites installed in the surrounding forests.

      Restored in 2010 after the damage caused by the Xynthia storm, it is now completely secure, to the delight of hikers. You will thus appreciate a grandiose landscape, formed by torrents for millennia, in the limestone of the Pyrenean massif.

    Great Great and free. A very steep climb, for the sportif. I loved it, would highly recommend it!

    Great view from this impressive suspension bridge. The path up from the car park can get really busy in the summer so I'd suggest using the other longer route (5.5hrs) that traverses in from Larrau. Its well worth the extra effort and the views are spectacular.

    It's a long way from my home, but I'm SO glad I made the trip there (actually, I've been there twice). The general environment there is impressively beautiful, whichever direction you look, but the bridge over the river is quite special and the walk to get there from wherever you are camping is a wonder. Go there.
