HighRoad Pyrenees

Rustic Charm and Legendary Riding

8 Days Reviews

The Pyrenees are the 2nd of France’s great mountain ranges (after the Alps), forming a natural frontier with Spain to the south. These mountains are even more steeped in cycling history than the Alps, having hosted the Tour de France for well over 100 years. Tourmalet, Aspin, Aubisque, Peyresourde are mythic cols with legendary stories being added every year (like Chris Froome’s amazing attack on the descent of the Peyresourde in 2016).

The Pyrenees are completely different in character from the French Alps, too; with much of the central range being a National Park, we ride through unspoiled nature, dotted with rustic villages and lively spa towns. But your HighRoad Pyrenees tour is no outback camping trip! We have scoured the range for excellent hotels and quality restaurants serving fresh, local cuisine. After a day on the bike in the high mountains, you deserve the comforts of home.

HighRoad Pyrenees starts in the central Hautes Pyrénées, crossing the range in a westerly direction to finish in the bustling resort town of St. Jean de Luz, on the Bay of Biscay. Like our other HighRoad tours, once you arrive in the mountains, you will be on your bike, not sitting in a van – after your airport pick-up (Toulouse) there are no more transfers till you fly back home.

My husband and I took the self-guided tour through the back roads of Languedoc. Gerry and John’s attention to detail was outstanding: bike fits, route choices, maps, GPS, baggage transfers, welcome drink and send off, great lodging and food. We were gobsmacked at the beauty of the countryside along the way. The trip was satisfying for both the semi-professional and the novice. Can’t recommend it highly enough!
