TRAMCASTILLA -> CARCASSONNE -> AVIGNON

A true climber's start to Hannibal as we take on the best the Pyrenees has to offer - Col de Pourtalet, Col d'Aubisque, Col du Soulor, Col du Tourmalet, Col d’Aspin & Col de Peyresourde.
Spectacular scenery throughout, compare the rugged beauty of the Pyrenees to the peaked majesty of the Alps!
Tour de France routes many times over including in 2018 all the way to Carcassonne.
Cathar country past another of their amazing fortresses Chateau Montségur.
Regroup in Carcassonne.

We created this route for the BBC back in 2009 and have run this tour since 2012 - it is an amazing journey. However, it was time for an update so we have reviewed, re-shaped, revamped and rescouted every section of the journey - routes, restaurants, sites and experience. There are better locations to visit, better roads to ride, better rest day, more optional cycling challenges and lastly, better history - in consultation with the L'Association HANNIBAL BARCA we have adjusted our route - we now ride ever closer to Hannibal's route - our Apennine crossing now reflects this and as ever you will have archaeologist Sam Wood's Hannibalic story telling to accompany your journey.
