93 km / 2h07
Our adventure continues and today holds many surprises. From Saint Lary follow the RD929 towards Arreau to reach the Pic du Midi by crossing the Aspin mountain pass. After a thrilling cable-car ride you enjoy the greatest panorama in the Pyrenees from the top at nearly 3000 metres. You then cross the famous Col du Tourmalet, scene of so many dramas of the Tour de France before spending the night in the sensational setting of Gavarnie. But do not be impatient, you will have plenty of time tomorrow to discover this World Heritage site.
