Hautacam

France

A beautiful climb that demands attention.

Hautacam is a 13km climb, ascending 1170m to 1635m altitude with sections of 15% gradients and an overall average of 8%. It has made special appearances on the Tour de France and can be considered a gentle giant.

From Argelès-Gazost, the climb begins through farming fields and green meadows. The road is narrow and ascends with wide bends through small hamlets.

The final few kilometres are not without stunning views of the Hautes-Pyrénées.
