La Rhune is a mountain in the Basque Country. Take the "Train de La Rhune'' and discover the breathtaking views at the summit of La Rhune (awarded 3 stars in the Michelin Green Guide).

The first summit in the Pyrenees mountain range, La Rhune overlooks the Basque Country from a height of 905 metres, thus offering one of the loveliest panoramic views. Look around you, and see the seven provinces of the Basque Country, the peaks of the Pyrenees, the outstretched beaches of the Landes region, and the Basque coastline from Biarritz to Saint-Sébastien. At the summit, also enjoy the three ventas (Spanish restaurant and souvenir shop), and experience the Spanish side.

This authentic vintage rack railway train dating from 1924 will take you on a 35-minute ride at a speed of 9km per hour through the heart of wild natural settings. As you go up, you will be able to discover the specific fauna and flora of the Basque mountains.
On the massif live the pottok, a small and sturdy Basque pony that roams about freely, as well as the manech red head sheep and the Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus), an emblematic bird of prey of the Pyrenees.
