What is the weather going to be like?
The summer months in the Pyrénées are typically warm with daily temperatures ranging from the mid 60s to low 80s, dropping to the mid 50s to mid 60s in the evenings. When traveling in the mountains, it is best to be prepared for variable conditions as weather can change very quickly. We recommend always traveling with rain gear as well as breathable layers to provide warmth should the weather turn and the temperature drop.

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Etape du Tour is best suited for our Type 4 Riders. Type 4+ Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.
What are the options for a non-rider travel companion?
This destination is best suited to guests who want to cycle every day. Because of the terrain and/or remoteness of the hotels and riding routes, there are few, if any, non-riding options available. If a non-rider wants to accompany a rider guest on this trip, they would need to spend many hours in the van and/or at the hotels on the trip. Due to this, we strongly discourage non-riders from this destination.
As an alternative, call a Trek Travel Trip Consultant at 866.464.8735 for trip suggestions where more non-rider activities are available, such as Provence Luxury
, Tuscany Explorer
, or Costa Brava
