Mountain biking in the Pyrenees

Barèges is a paradise for the mountain  biker with mile after mile of  trails in spectacular mountain scenery.

In July and August the La Laquette chairlift takes you and your bike to nearly 2,000 meters with a variety of exciting routes back down to the valley, there’s even a great cafe at the top.

Experienced descenders will want to ride the Pic du Midi. There is cable car access to the summit at 2950 m for a mouthwatering 1700 m (6000 ft!) 100% off-road descent back to Barèges. (see the video below).

Upon arrival we explain the possibilities and you will receive our own trail guide.

There are 200 kilometres of way-marked and graded mountain bike trails in the Barèges valley alone.

Our very own trail guide has all our favourite routes graded — easy rolling bridleways for beginners, long, long descents, lots of technical stuff and single track for off-road experts.

Bike hire available (full suspension).
