Pyrenees & Occitanie
Long tours combine two or three medium tours or extend one of them to reach more remote areas. This tour combines our two tours in the Pyrenees area, the Pyrenees tour itself and the one in southwestern France that focuses on the Occitania region.
While the Pyrenees area is well known to most bikers, the Occitania region is not at all, so this tour perfectly combines the two perspectives from which you can plan a motorcycle trip, tour the Mythical areas you have heard from your friends and discover new areas for you to tell them about.
But, as always in our tours, also in the most popular areas we have included some fantastic roads that we are sure no friend of yours will have ridden. We consider that this aspect is the one that gives added value to our trips and we spend a lot of time and effort to go deeply into each region so that our trips are different from those offered by other companies.
In the biker aspect, the word Pyrenees is already a guarantee that the trip will be fantastic. The roads of the Pyrenees are characterized by being one of the best mountain roads in Europe, and also with an aspect that should be highlighted especially and this is that they have much less traffic than the Alpine roads. This aspect will allow you to enjoy the motorcycle much more than in any other European mountain area.
In the landscape aspect, this tour combines high and medium mountain areas with many forests and even some coastal road, so it is a very varied tour in terms of landscapes.
It is not a monumental journey, because it hardly passes through cities with a great cultural heritage, but even so, there are some like Carcassonna where, if you wish, you can add a day of rest.
In the hotel aspect, we have taken special care to find exceptional accommodation in the vast majority of the stages, but, as always, we can also adjust to your budget, and in the gastronomic aspect you can combine popular mountain cuisine with sophisticated French cuisine.
