Air France has several daily options, and early bookers may find cheaper flights with EasyJet although these are less frequent. From the airport you can take a taxi to Lourdes: from Tarbes the taxi is approximately 30 euros and from Pau expect to pay between 70-100 euros.
As the trip ends in Grenoble, we recommend booking your return flight from Lyon (LYS) or Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG). You can take a TGV from Grenoble to Paris Gare de Lyon station or Lyon. This journey is approximately 3 hours to Paris and 1 hour to Lyon. For tickets and schedules please check www.sncf.fr.

The summer months can bring warm days, ranging from the mid 60s to low 80s, with evenings dropping to the mid 50s to mid 60s. When traveling in the mountainous regions of France, it is best to be prepared for variable conditions, as weather can change very quickly, and there is always the chance of snow and rain. We recommend always traveling with rain gear, as well as plenty of breathable layers to provide warmth should the temperature drop. Packing List

Visit the famous grotto where apparitions of theVirgin Mary are reported to have occurred in 1858.The spring water from the grotto is also believed by some to possess healing properties. Lourdes is a fascinating destination unto itself. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:
If you have the time, consider staying in Grenoble after your trip to further explore the diverse activities this French town offers. Grenoble has numerous outdoor activities, including via ferrata, a mountain route equipped with fixed cables, ladders,and bridges providing access to otherwise isolated routes to climbers with a variety of skills. Not to be missed in this Rhône-Alpes town, is a ride up the télépherique: egg-shaped cable cars, les bulles, take you across the Isère river to the bastille, a series of ancient fortifications. Enjoy the view from the summit, then wander the many trails leading down to the city. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
