Le Petit Rhune

We doubt you’ll have the place to yourself, but it’s popular for a reason, and the reason is clear once you see the view – and two countries – from the top. The trip on the way up and down is quite a treat too: it’s a genuine old rack and pinion railway train (built in 1924) and the summit, which is 905 metres, will take you 35 minutes to reach.
