Cycling in the Pyrenees

The Ariège has much to offer for every type of cyclist. There are beautiful valleys to explore, and mountains to conquer. Hotel “Auberge Les Myrtilles” serves as a great base for all of your cycling trips.

For road cyclists there is lots of choice in the surroundings of Salau, such as the “Col de la Trappe”, “Col de la Core”, “Col d’Agnès” and the “Portet d’Aspet”, all well known from the Tour de France. We offer a vast number of well described road tours, varying in difficulty. The routes lead to known and less known cols.
We can also offer mountain bikers a very enervating time at our place. During the last years we have put together a number of challenging trails in our surroundings. For bikers that like to climb and are not afraid of many meters in elevation, our hotel is an ideal place to stay.
