To enjoy the fauna and flora of La Rhune
, there is no substitute for walking. Starting from Olhette (an area in Saint-Jean-de-Luz), walkers will go up about 900 metres of uneven ground over five hours and will then come down again, tired but delighted to have approached some pottoks
(small Basque horses) and sheep, to have seen fossilised ferns and enjoy a drink of water at the Col des Trois Fontaines
. From the top of this mystical rock, there is a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside, the Bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz and the Landes coast. At the summit, ventas
(shops) offer food. Those who are not brave enough can take the little train of La Rhune.
