Barèges, Grand Tourmalet: What to do when you get there?

Discover the activities to do in Barèges! A few kilometres from the Pic du Midi, Barèges is an obligatory stopover in the Pyrenees. Its setting and landscapes on the highest mountain in the Franco-Spanish mountain range offer an infinite number of activities to discover.

Known for its thermal waters, Barèges was founded in 1946 and quickly became a must-see place in the Pyrenees. At the foot of the Tourmalet, the village benefits from an exceptional natural setting. On the edge of the Néouvielle nature reserve and a few steps from the Pic du Midi, Barèges is very popular with cyclists, particularly thanks to the many stages of the Tour de France that have taken place around the town.

A summer resort, Barèges has been able to evolve and offer its visitors all sorts of winter activities! So discover the activities to do in Barèges, in any season!

When the Pyrenees are covered in snow, put on your skis or snowboard and take advantage of the 100 km ski area. But you don't have to stay on the slopes! Cross the boundaries of the Barèges ski area for a sensational activity: off-piste skiing. To take advantage of the priceless natural setting offered by the resort, what better way than to discover the surroundings during a dog sled ride, a real moment of conviviality to share with friends and family and the animals! If you still want to visit the forests and mountains of the Pyrenees, but are looking for more thrills, opt for a snowmobile trip. Great activities to do in Barèges in winter!

During the summer season, put away your skis and other gear and get some hiking boots and head off to discover the heights of Barèges and its incredible natural setting. You will be able to gain altitude and enjoy breathtaking views of the Pic du Midi and the Tourmalet. If you want to go even higher, book an unforgettable paragliding flight. From the sky, a unique panorama will be offered to you! You will fly over the entire Pyrenees and be able to admire the most beautiful reliefs of the region.
Back on the ground, explore the rocky paths of Barèges on a fat bike or mountain bike and discover the local flora and fauna!
