Beginners or seasoned cyclist, Luz is your base camp for taking on the challenge of the “Giants of the Tour”!
The variety of climbs here means that you can cycle all year round – pitting yourself against mythical ascents and mountain passes made famous in the Tour de France: Col du Tourmalet, Luz Ardiden…
At your own pace, here at the gateway to the Pyrenees National Park, your efforts are rewarded with magnificent views such as the Gavarnie Cirque and the Pic du Midi de Bigorre.
You will also be seduced by the more secret “off the beaten track” routes such as Cirque de Troumouse, Cauterets-Pont d’Espagne or Aubisque-Soulor.
