The most beautiful balcony in the Pyrenees - Le Pic du Midi

The mountain offers us the setting...
It's up to us to invent the story that goes with it!


The peak not to be missed

Are you on vacation in Occitanie or in the Pyrenees?

Then you are very close to the emblematic site which culminates at an altitude of 2,877 meters in the French Pyrenees beauty.

The Pic du Midi was classified in 2003 as a national natural site for its landscape.

It is easily accessible thanks to the cable car that will guide you to the top.

La Mongie, the Col du Tourmalet, the peaks of the Ariège, up to the first peaks of the Soule (basque country), you will be amazed by the spectacle that awaits you.

Choosing the perfect time

Accend early in the morning for maximum visibility and a panorama of 300 km. Or at the end of the day on a winter's evening to admire the sun setting on the 12 m long footbridge suspended above the void.
