From the Col de Saint-Ignace, you can take the Petit Train to discover the Rhune. The Little Train, but also for walkers a climb up. Climbing the Rhune is a memorable hike: it combines legend, nature, history and culture. Empress Eugénie led her court there in a picturesque ascent on September 30, 1859! And the Empress's road, it goes through the Rhune. It should be noted that the Rhune dominates the Basque Coast with its 905 m, offering superb panoramas. It takes a good 3 hours to climb the Rhune. It is necessary to take the time to contemplate the fauna and flora, the pottoks, the Manech sheep, the griffon vultures... and drink from the three springs. La Rhune actually belongs to four municipalities: Sare, Ascain, Urrugne and Vera de Bidassoa in Spain. The ascent can also start from Ascain or the station by following the green markings or by the GR10. And if you find it difficult, at least enjoy the pleasant descent.
