Taking Lourdes as a starting point, cyclists have a wide range of routes; from the discovery of la Vallée des Gaves following the Coulée Verte (actually an old railway converted into a path for cyclists, rollers and walkers) to the famous passes used by the Tour de France: Aubisque, Soulor, Aspin, or Tourmalet.
The several marked mountain bike routes start already at the outskirts of Lourdes, and as you ride along, the Green Path (la Voie Verte) will reveal to you the various possibilities towards Argelès-Gazost Valley, the climb to the Pic du Jer or the Henry 4th path that leads to the northern part of the city.
We offer bicycle and mountain bike rental service on site.

The area is particularly and ideally suitable for rides on a motorbike.
From Lourdes following the mountainous paths, you will discover breathtaking landscapes, and from the Vallée des Gaves (The Gaves Valley), you can ride up to the passes of Soulor and Aubisque taking the cliff road of the Cirque du Litor and continuing as far as the Spanish border. It is worth following the superb scenic road that leads to the Tourmalet pass and goes on to the Aspin pass and the Aure Valley.

The roads that lead to the famous sites of the area (le Cirque de Gavarnie, le Pont d’Espagne, les lacs d’Estaing or du Tech, le Pic du Midi de Bigorre and more eastwards to the Basque Country…) will allow you to discover a preserved nature and typical and traditional wonderful rural villages where it is nice to stop for a fresh drink.
We offer a secure, closed and covered garage with small prices for our guests with motorbikes.

Walks and hikes are our area’s greatest asset and richness.
From Lourdes, La Voie Verte (the Green Path along the Gaves) will open up the gates of Argelès-Gazost Valley; in a green and natural setting, you could just admire and enjoy the surrounding mountains with their impressive peaks.

The Pic du Jer is directly reachable from the city, and from there you have a 360° view over Lourdes and on the Pyrenees.

For the mountain lovers, whether they are children or adults, you are offered many possibilities. From a simple walk on a flat ground in Hautacam, around the Lac d’Estaing or at the Cirque de Troumousse to the more sportive hikes to reach the Pic du Pibeste or the lac de Gaube
