The Pic Saint-Barthélemy is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful belvederes in the Pyrenees. The sheer joy of discovering an absolutely breathtaking 360° panorama is worth the climb alone. 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 accompanied by a guide and remains reserved for very experienced and well-equipped hikers.
This long-distance hiking route takes you to the highest point of the Massif de Tabe.
Besides the incredible views, you can enjoy superb stops around the lakes that line it:
- Trout lake (fishing friends!),
- Devil lake (of course, there’s always one )
- Upper lake (the highest?).
A must do!
