About us

The Col du Tourmalet, well known to cyclists in summer and skiers in winter, welcomes this summer 2023 “La Maison du Tourmalet”. The Pic du Midi wanted to enhance its surroundings by building this tourist reception structure in this emblematic place which becomes the gateway to the summit facilities.
NEW: The Maison du Tourmalet is made up of a reception / information / shop area and the Coupole de la Nuit, the center of operations for this cross-border program around the themes of the impact of light pollution on biodiversity for the general public, including a 15-minute show under a 360° dome.
“NOX, THE JOURNEY INTO THE NIGHT” is an immersive 360° journey, lasting 15 minutes, which raises awareness of the impact of light pollution and offers a new look at darkness. The traveler lives a real experience which starts from Toulouse towards the Col du Tourmalet, then the Pic du Midi and rises towards the planets beyond the summits. From the wildest dreams to the scariest nightmares, night is a mysterious and yet fascinating time.
Important: show not recommended for people prone to epilepsy.
The Pic du Midi, the Instant Science Association and the CPIE 65 (Permanent Center for Environmental Initiatives Bigorre – Pyrenees) have joined forces to also offer an entertainment program so that visitors can go in search of 'history. This summer, the Pic du Midi has decided to revive, through historical photos of the Alix background in black and white, the Tour de France which made the Col du Tourmalet famous internationally. Ascension, elevation, combativeness, surpassing oneself, are the key words of this ascent to the Col, just as the construction of the Pic du Midi was.
