The Pyrenees are famous for the likes of the Col du Tourmalet, but we think that they save their very best for when the tarmac ends. The gravel riding in the high mountains is simply mind-blowing. Read what Cyclist Off-Road magazine thought when they rode with us.

The network of gravel trails is massive, criss-crossing the forests and zig-zagging up the peaks, often way higher than any road, so the views are spectacular. We have an incredible set of routes; a typical day is 85km, 2800m of climbing and 5-6hrs, nearly all on gravel.

 

Gravel riding in the Pyrenees is as exhilarating as it gets and virtually every guest returns to the house each day saying the same thing: "That was epic!" It doesn't get better than this. That's why we call it Peak Gravel.
