Coast to Coast Pyrenees

Experience this unforgettable Pyrenean adventure with us; In six stages you will experience all the beauty of the Pyrenees. We start in the afternoon of the arrival day with a prologue in the picturesque Basque coastal village of Hendaye, on the Atlantic sea (the west). The next morning the tour starts with which you cycle from west to east through the Pyrenees in 6 stages. For the evenings we have our regular restaurants with good menus and there is time to exchange the stories of the day and the briefing for the next day.

For groups of up to 13 people, one of our Coast to Coast guides will accompany you and for groups of 14 or more, two caretakers will accompany you. Our enthusiastic caretakers organize a coffee stop and a lunch stop every day, the necessary encouragement during the stages, moving the luggage and organizing breakfast and dinner. You don't have to worry about the organization and just enjoy the incredibly beautiful mountain landscapes and the suffering on the cols.

A good condition is required for the 6 stages in the mountains (ask us for advice if necessary).

You will receive the route book with the GPX tracks from us in advance (with possibly a loaner Garmin). For most days we have two route versions where you take one extra col with route "black". You can choose which route you take per day.

We advise you to travel by train to the starting point and also from the end point back to the Netherlands by train. These are comfortable journeys and both the hotel in Hendaye (starting point) and Cerebere (ending point) are close to the train station where the TGV goes. In Hendaye, your Bianchi rental bike is ready and waiting for you and you return it at the end of the week.

Be on time to book as we work with small hotels that have limited availability. Suitable months (because of the temperature in the high mountains) for this trip are June, July, August and September.
