Col de Portillon

Accommodation & Hire



  Lunch by the church and fountain at Bagneres de Luchon.  


  This was a hot climb towards Spain, and steep in places.  


  Luckily there was plenty of shade afforded by the trees, but they also made it impossible to see anything beyond the first tree at the summit.  


  A quick descent to Bossost, then a smooth descent to the border and on towards Fos. The next junction we took a right and started to climb the Col d'Artigascou.
