  • 18 km from luz St Saveur is a long way. Yet I above by simply by cycling:-). Views are beautiful. Village of here a village there. And then finally over after two and a quarter hours. The col itself is a real col. .. Straight up and straight down. One terrace/bar where the pressure is, of course, bere. Have good facilities to your bike in the braces. But then French hospitality ... To one-minute speeches on two, the kitchen is close ...

  • Legendary and impressive. Terrifying ramps, beautiful landscapes of high mountain, admirable effort of cyclists. The Tourmalet is the Tourmalet.

  • It's the legendary col of the tour de France, we understand the efforts of cyclists when we travel by car. The road is wide enough to not really realize the slope, it's only when we go down there, Yes, indeed it is no joke for cyclists. At the top of the pass, the plates recall the epic of the first rider to be passed at the Summit, as well as the former Director of the tour de France J.GODET. As a bonus, a great point of view.

  • Awesome. Scenery fantastic.
  • It's the Col du Tourmalet so obviously must see for any cyclist or fan of cycle road racing. However, for the rest there's amazing views on both sides of the col and a number of hikes from this point. Plenty of parking - so long as the Tour de France isn't passing that is!
  • Simply fantastic ! Great panoramas, one of the longest and harder climb of tour the france
  • Classic col to climb
  • Nice Place to Grab a Coffee at the Top.
