Loop around
the Pic du Midi

On our way to a detour into the heart of a sensational territory. Rich in vitality with varied and intense countryside, it’s the Grand Tourmalet. This loop around the Pic du Midi has elements of thermal spas, cultural and pastoral heritage and will encourage you to relive the historical adventure of racing cyclists that forged the history of this area counting among the most characteristic of the Route des Pyrenees.

From the departure point in Lourdes we will head towards Argelès-Gazost, the charming thermal hot spot. Then we’ll continue to ascend the path of the river the Gave of Pau, and its famous gorges until we reach the very typical mountain village of Luz-Saint-Sauveur. Luz is also a dynamic town and thermal station and it’s located at the foot of the Col du Tourmalet. Several kilometers higher, the pass crosses the highest thermal station in the Pyrenees, Barèges. Only a few kilometers further before we reach the summit of this giant of the Tour de France, and the highest pass in the French Pyrenees. From this terrace, the panoramic views will take your breath away. From the other slope of the pass, we’ll cross the ski station, La Mongie, which is the departure point for the excursions to the Pic du Midi. Next we’ll descend little by little into the verdant valley of Campan with mountainous and pastoral scenery, finally reaching Bagnères de Bigorre. The city of beautiful thermal architecture is known for its relaxing and curing thermal water.
