Le Pic du Midi

18 images

At the southern edge of the Occitanie region of France are the Pyrénées mountains, where the rolling hills and gentle rural landscapes of this region become remote wilderness and rocky peaks reaching 10,000 feet in altitude. This rugged and beautiful mountain range offers incredible camping and hiking.

The Pic du Midi de Bigorre serves as a space research center, ski slopes, and a museum, all built on a mountain peak. It is not the highest point in the Pyrénées but at 9,438ft, the Pic du Midi offers unparalleled views of the true magnitude of this mountain range.
