A unique cross-border adventure

The Haute Route Pyrenees epitomises the ultimate two-wheel adventure. Starting in stunning Girona on the Mediterranean Sea, and traversing all the way across the raw Pyrenees peaks to Pau, this five-day event will be one to remember. Riding point-to-point with full support from the Haute Route team, ticking the Pyrenees off your bucket list has never been so easy.

Simple logistics and premium services

Traversing across the Pyrenees, you’ll be riding from one city to another each day. While the logistics of a point-to-point adventure can be complicated on your own, our premium services make sure the only thing you need to think about is the ride. Make the most of your recovery time and rider services at the end of each day, while we take care of everything from moving your bags, to accommodation. Then, at the end of an incredible week of cycling, we will come together for a grand closing ceremony in the ballroom of the exquisite Palais Beaumont in Pau.
