The route to this zoo is very well indicated and the climb to it is spectacular, a road mountain stage of the Tour and La Vuelta with wonderful views and with reminders in the revolts of the Spanish cyclists who have won some Tour Parking is large but it is convenient to arrive early because it gets crowded The wonderful thing about this zoo is that its animals are those that are in their environment, animals of the Pyrenees, no lions and kangaroos, there are bears, wolves, deer, fallow deer, bearded vultures, fauna of the area with the natural vegetation of the area , no artificial wetlands The animals are in semi-freedom, you walk among them on marked trails, only the most dangerous bears and wolves have some protection such as pits or lines of high voltage cables So much so that my wife was accidentally pecked by a griffon vulture, they can appear at any time and my daughter was able to feed the marmots with her hand At the end of the tour there is an interesting very educational museum of the fauna and flora of the Pyrenees as well as these were formed through the decades

We have visited the park before. The animals are great and easy to spot due to The layout of the paths. The forest is truly beautiful and very tranquil. It offers great shade from the hot summer sun even at the height if the day. The cafe half way round is great value for money. There isn't a huge range of animals but why they do have is quality. Vultures who are close enough to touch but don't. Wolves and bears too.

The park is set in mountain terrain among trees, rocks and numerous streams and waterfalls and the setting itself is lovely. There is a well-made path for the whole tour and we took someone in a wheelchair along with relative ease (there are a couple of steep slopes). The animals are free to roam and not all are fenced off so you feel genuinely connected and have the chance to be close to them. Highlights were the deer, wolves, goats (they loved the attention),lynx and the bears. We were treated to a twenty minute spectacle of the bears playing, rolling around, biting each other (for fun) and generally having a good time. Marvellous. They seemed very happy indeed and there is an observation point where you can get very close to see them. A truly awesome experience. Approximately a 90 minute walk but we spent about three hours enjoying the gorgeous landscape and animals.

The park had a good selection of local animals in reasonably large enclosures. Some time is required to see the animals resting in the trees away from the pathway. We had concerns that at one point there is an enclosure of wolves beside an enclosure of deer, and the animals are clearly aware of each other's presence. When we visited the wolves were looking hungrily at the deer which appeared rather nervous. The big problem is the bears. Visit spoilt by the sight of 2 bears pacing backwards and forwards along a short stone pathway trying to avoid each other. The enclosure is far too small for them and they are clearly both bored and stressed. Be aware that the snack shop is not always open when the park is. When we visited it was closed and no refreshments were available during our visit

A lovely zoo that has made great use of the natural habitat. Both the drive to it and the views from it were stunning and we spent a fun filled few hours there. The only gripe was that the bears appear to have been shortchanged and didn't have as big a habitat as some of the other animals and one of them looked rather sad! Other than that, all the animals had plenty of space and looked in really good health. A great day out and recommended
