What we love About Pyrenees Cycling Holiday

We love...Following in the Cycle Tracks of Legends
The Pyrenees is one of the most famous cycling destinations in the world. Experience climbs made famous by Le Tour, ride the roads that have been battlegrounds for the yellow jersey and immerse yourself in French cycling culture.
We love...The Views
Whether you're climbing mountains or riding through valleys, there are stunning views everywhere you look in the Pyrenees. Lac d'Estaing is a beautiful place to ride to whilst the views from the mountain peaks are unsurprisingly awe-inspiring.
We love...The Climbs
The abundance of iconic climbs makes the environment the perfect place for seasoned riders. The Col du Tourmalet is probably the most revered but you can also ride the Aubisque, Soulour, Hautacam and the list just keeps going!

Suggested Holiday

This trip is entirely flexible, allowing you to arrive and depart whenever you like. The best airport to arrive is either Lourdes, Tarbes or Toulouse, and you will stay in Argeles-Gazost. Check in to the hotel, relax and collect your bicycle.

Surrounded by iconic climbs made famous by Le Tour De France, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing where to ride. You will be given the choice of many great routes, available in GPX, before heading out to tackle the famous cols including the Aubisque, the Soulor, d’Aspin, Luz Ardiden and Hautacam and the most iconic of them all the Tourmalet.

Ridden more than any other pass on the Tour de France (83 at the last count), Col du Tourmalet is as iconic a climb as you will find. Connecting the Bagneres de Bigoree valley to the ‘Pays Toy’ the Tourmalet pass offers stunning scenery and an unforgettable day in the saddle.

The beauty of this area is you don’t have to spend everyday climbing. There are some beautiful rides to places including the stunning Lac d’Estaing or ride through the valley following the old railway line, now a cycle path, to Lourdes for a religious pilgrimage.

After an incredible few days riding you will be taken back to the airport.
