Travel on the most beautiful roads in the Pyrenees

Free-wheeling through the Pyrenees

We love our dear Pyrenees, their varied altitudes, their landscapes that comfort us and bring a smile to our faces. Because everyone has different tastes, we can’t recommend one destination in particular, but one thing is sure: you should take advantage of the Pyrenees’ most scenic roads to see what our area has to offer.

The Col d’Aspin road

 

Travelled numerous times by the Tour de France cyclists, the Col d’Aspin is wilder and less frequented than its neighbour, the Col du Tourmalet. On your ascent along the pass, take a break at Payolle Lake, surrounded by pine trees, and be enchanted by the view. Accessible all year and to the whole family, you can enjoy a wide range of sports and tourism activities there.

The Col Hourquette d’Ancizan road

 

The Hourquette d’Ancizan is a mountain pass that culminates at an altitude of 1,564 metres. It connects the Payolle Valley and the Aure Valley. Less busy than the Col d’Aspin but equally remarkable, it’s a great place to admire the stunning landscapes and animals in their summer pastures.
