EPIC PYRENEES

Tour Description

July 2025 – ENQUIRE TODAY – Here is a classic cycling tour to challenge all recreational cyclists looking to tick off a full bucket list of epic climbs straight from the Tour de France pro-cycling race. This Pyrenees cycling tour starts from San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain) and begins through the Atlantic Pyrenees. From ‘St-Jean’ one of the most challenging climbs in the Pyrenees awaits ‘Larra-Larrau’. It is full of history and intrigue as Spanish legend Miguel Indurain (5 x TDF champion) saw his rein unravel on this monstrous climb way back in 1996. On the way to the Midi-Pyrenees this backroad cycling tour takes you over numerous classic TDF climbs including Col de la Pierre St Martin (Stage 10 summit / 2015 TDF), Col du Marie Blanque (Stage 5 / 2023 TDF) and Col d’Aubisque (Stage 18, hors categorie, 2022 TDF).

The tour bases itself in the Midi-Pyrenees for three nights and towering mountain peaks are all around. Col du Soulor, Col du Spandelles, Hautacam, Luz Ardiden and that other climb that goes by the name ‘Tourmalet’ are all in easy striking distance. The Pyrenees is also home to several pristine national parks which the TDF is unable to access. You will be in awe of the gigantic landscapes as you ride to ‘Cirque de Troumouse’ and ‘Cap d’Long’. Here we are talking about old glaciers and reservoirs which sit at heights hovering around 2000m elevation. What an amazing ten-day holiday through the best of the Spanish & French Pyrenees!

As good as it gets for switchbacks and road cycling in the French Pyrenees
