Revered as a spa town and ski resort, Cauterets is a leisurely place well known for its abundant, naturally warm thermal springs and winter sports, such as skiing. The springs are warm due to the presence of sulfur and soda silicate, which many attest aid in the treatment of respiratory ailments, rheumatism, and skin diseases. The most popular thermal baths called Thermes Cesar opened in 1843, and they continue to offer treatments today. Cauterets also provides 36 km (22 mi) of cross country skiing tracks at Pont d'Espagne and 25 downhill pistes at Cirque du Lys that are between 1700 m (5,577 ft) and 2500 m (8,200 ft) in altitude for beginners and intermediates. You're sure to enjoy the modern new cable car that efficiently transports up to 2,000 skiers per hour up to the Cirque du Lys run. When using our France road trip planning website, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
