The Pic Saint-Barthélemy is undoubtedly one of the finest viewpoints in the Pyrenees. For the sheer pleasure of discovering an absolutely breathtaking 360° panorama, the peak is well worth the climb. Perched at 2348 m, it offers a breathtaking view of the entire eastern Pyrenees and the Ariège plain. The route takes in the heart of the regional nature reserve that bears its name. Although quite long, it is accessible to the slightly trained walker, with good shoes and in the absence of snow. In winter, this summit can only be discovered with a guide, and is reserved for very experienced, well-equipped hikers.
This long-distance hiking route takes you to the highest point of the Tabe Massif.
In addition to the incredible views, you’ll be able to enjoy superb stops at the lakes along the way:
- Lac des Truites (angler friends!),
- Lac du Diable (of course, there’s always one)
- Lac Supérieur (the highest lake?).
An absolute must!
