The Cheeses Road
Discover a gastronomic road where paths and small roads lead you along the valleys...
Driving along the "Route des Fromages AOC Ossau-Iraty", you will admire changing landscapes and different sites of production : from Pau and its surroundings to the Atlantic Facade, near Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, through the Valleys of Baïgorry, Soule, the Iraty Forest, the "Pic du Midi d'Ossau", Saint-Palais, the Labourd province and the Arbéroue.
Follow the posted signs and meet the producers who will be happy to share with you their passion for their know-how and activity. Shepherds, milkers, artisanal dairy producers, cheesemakers (particularly sheepcheese makers in the mountain during summer) will welcome you. And don't forget to participate to the sheep milking ritual !
