Toulouse to Girona
The challenge of the Pyrenean cols
Our cycle tour from Toulouse to Girona combines stunning scenery and the challenge of riding Pyrenean Cols. This tour is not for the faint-hearted but among its many rewards it offers breath-taking views. The very first day starts with an ascent of the Col de Peyresourde which has frequently featured in the Tour de France We finish in Girona, home to many professional cyclists attracted by its climate and the fantastic training opportunities offered by the surrounding countryside, including the famous Rocacorba climb which presents an enjoyable extra option for your last day.

We offer an optional day at the beginning of the trip, riding from Toulouse to Arreau as a leg-stretcher. For those who would prefer to avoid cycling this section (90km on flat roads), given the already demanding itinerary, the tour ‘proper’ begins in Arreau rather than Toulouse itself.
