  • Always a bit impressive, but the result is beautiful very beautiful view. We were lucky the sky was clear. If you have the courage to climb even higher after the resort it's even more beautiful. And if you have late or hot coming back to the station to arrive you will have something to take a break.

  • From Lourdes we took the circular S4 (1.20 euros per way) that leads right in front of the entrance of the funicular for Pic du Jer. Get your tickets... 12.50 a/r we take the vehicle that is now 30 minutes and after a fascinating ascent with the 56%slope we got to the top. Bikes also have the place. On the Pic they also made the World Mountain Bike Championships. Up you can go around x 40 minutes to the caves. I think with 4 euros. Or make the different paths that take you down the mountain and to the top. Pleasant walk, short no particular slope and non-binding. Arriving at the top the view is spectacular.

  • Extraordinary views. Amazing ride. Cafe on top. To get to the top you need to walk a bit in maze of trails. It is worth it. Would go there again.
  • Beautiful location. Clean with great guides.
