7 Days (Sat - Sat)
The Raid Pyrenees, also known as the Raid Pyrenean, is a historic route from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. Our one week Raid Pyrenees tour is the perfect way to experience it. We ride this spectacular route several times a year, so you can be sure that the information we give you on the route is up to date and accurate, as well as easy to follow.
As cyclists who have cycled all of the Cols en route, we know what it’s like on the tough climbs, and when you are most likely to need support. Our Raid Pyrenees cycling tour follows the exact route of the original Raid and all of the Cols we climb were on the original route. Plus, there are a couple of extras if you’re up for even more of a challenge!
This one week Raid Pyrenees tour is 720 km total with 11,000 metres of climbing. There are other Cols on this trip that can be done along the way if you want to do more.
