Your day out high up in the Pyrenees

Bonjour , Le Pic du Midi ouvre au public pour la journée. 19/02/2018 — 10:54

Come and discover a magical, majestic place high up in the Pyrenees with your friends or family. Accessible to everyone by cable car, the Pic du Midi is one of the Grands Sites de Midi-Pyrénées and is a must-see place to visit if you are travelling in our beautiful region.

Your program

  • The ascent

    Your day at the Pic starts with a memorable cable car ride from La Mongie. And once you get to the top, you have access to the panoramic terraces with views stretching out over 300 kilometres of the Pyrenees range.
  • At the top

    You will be able to identify the various peaks you can see with the help of the information boards with their landscape graphics. And other panels will tell you all about the environment high up in the Pyrenees. Build on your knowledge of the mountains with a telescope installed on the terrace. Or enjoy our team’s presentation of the panorama, when you can also look safely at the sun through our coronagraph.

  • A museum

    The highest one in Europe awaits you! It recounts the amazing adventure of the men who built the Pic. Builders, scientists and the people of the valley have always made and continue to make the history of the Pic.

  • dessertA break for lunch

    Everything’s laid on. A relaxing place whether it’s a quick snack or traditional lunch you’re after, the choice is yours. If you opt for the restaurant, then you will tuck into our chef’s specialities as you gaze out over the Pyrenees. Whether you’re with friends or family, it’s a moment you won’t forget. Finish off with a coffee on the terrace or a little time to relax before taking the cable car back down to La Mongie. (Tables can be reserved on arrival at the summit).


    New: the Pontoon in the Sky !

    Suspended over nothing but thin air a 10m metal walkway brushes up against the clouds and provides a unique and dizzying view. Visitors undertake an adventure with the feeling that they are flying. They focus on the horizon to brave vertigo and avoid getting dizzy.

    Opening programmed on Saturday, February 10th. Free access.

Practical information

Lunettes de soleil


Radiation is three times greater at the Pic than at sea level. The Pic enjoys 300 hours of sunlight more than the towns at its foot (Bagnères, Tarbes, Lourdes). So it is important to make sure you have sunglasses and sun block.
