    BIKe itinerary

    Welcome to the FRench Pyrenees

    We will meet you at Toulouse Airport at 2 pm, before taking you to your hotel in Gèdre-gAVARNIE the heart of the National Park of the Pyrenees. We take advantage of this first day to adjust your bikes and discuss the stay.

    Gèdre-Gavarnie > Col d’Aubisque 

    The steep and uneven slopes lead to a spectacular stretch of road, towards the Col du Soulor (1474 m) and then to the Col d’Aubisque (1709 m). Often in the shadow of the Tourmalet, the Col d’Aubisque  is nevertheless a must in the Pyrenees and in the Tour de France

     

    Gèdre-Gavarnie > Col de Tentes & Cirque de Troumouse

    Right from our hotel, we challenge the panoramic Col de Tentes (2208 m) at the border with Spain climb the slopes of the majestic Cirque de Troumouse (2088 m), the largest of the 3 cirques of the Pyrenees National Park.

    Gèdre-Gavarnie > Saint-Lary-Soulan 

    The Col du Tourmalet (2115 m), the most sacred mountain of the Tour de France, has been climbed more than 80 times by the riders since 1910. This mastodon, which has become a monument over the years, dominates the Adour and Campan valleys from a great height. We then take the direction of the unknown but very bucolic Col de la Hourquette d’Ancizan (1564 m).

    Saint-Lary-Soulan > Natural Reserve of Neouvielle 

    Lakes of the Natural Reserve of Neouvielle (2203 m) are waiting for us today. The road leading to the lakes is a pure jewel, in a wild and quiet environment.

    Saint-Lary-Soulan > Col de Portet

    First let’s challenge the Col d’Azet (1580m) linking Loudenvielle and Saint-Lary. Then we face the Col de Portet (2215m) and its 1400m of elevation gain. It is the highest pass in the French Pyrenees crossed by the Tour de France. Enjoy exceptional view of the Pyrenees National Park at the top, where Nairo  Quintana got a solo win in 2018.

    It is the end of this Wild French Pyrenees Bike Tour with Veymont Travel. After breakfast we will take you back to Toulouse Airport.
