Garmin and Active 4 Adventures decided to join forces to create the challenge of a lifetime: an epic crossing of the Pyrenees, one of the world’s most impressive mountain ranges.
Cycle from the Atlantic coast to the Mediterranean by climbing up the many passes of the Pyrenees and in particular the Col du Tourmalet, made famous by the Tour de France, during which this pass has been climbed more than 75 times, and the Vuelta a España. You’ll cover more than 700km from Biarritz to Collioure in nine days, accompanied by a Garmin GPS that will be yours at the end of the trip.
“Garmin have always been involved in sports and outdoor activities; it’s a real pleasure to work with Active 4 Adventures and their wonderful tours,” says Grégoire Neimari, sports and outdoor marketing manager for Garmin France.
Since 1989, with their high-tech communication and navigation equipment, Garmin have enabled us to travel safely. The company have always met the requirements of their clients, and in particular those of cyclists. They also have a Tour de France team: Garmin-Sharp. From the beginning, they’ve anticipated the success of GPS navigation, and that’s also what they do with the crossing of the Pyrenees.
Active 4 Adventures, formerly known as Discover France, have been creating cycling trips for 17 years. They have many guides who have their own specialties and favourite regions of France. The company pay close attention to your needs and do everything possible to turn your holiday into a great adventure.
“Our partnership has been going for years, and Garmin’s involvement has never decreased. It’s a way for us to offer our clients the best service possible, including the best access to GPS navigation,” saysThomas Boutin, CEO of Active 4 Adventures.
So take on the challenge of a lifetime and cycle safely through breathtaking landscapes thanks to Garmin technology and a tour created by Active 4 Adventures. For more information on the tour see the Active 4 Adventures website.
