Something wonderful to see
On Route 260, each curve is like peering into a viewpoint. The orography accompanies the road throughout its journey.
From the beginning of this route, nature invades the landscape to brighten the view of the biker who enters its curves. Also, its charming stone villages where time seems to have stopped and traces of Romanesque architecture are visible will enchant you.
This motorcycle route in the Pyrenees runs along a quiet road without much traffic, which has been completed not long ago in some of its sections. Making it a real pleasure to drive the motorcycle.
Circular route through the national 260
In Pyrenees on Motorbike, we have developed a circular proposal of the legendary Route 260 that will leave you with an exquisite taste in your mouth.
This motorcycle route in the Pyrenees crossing the wilder and more natural pre-Pyrenean area begins its first stage in the town of Sort. This town, besides being famous for its lottery administration “La Bruixa d’Or”, is protected by majestic mountains. From its Castle of the Counts of Pallars you can enjoy spectacular views of the Cerros de la Costa Negra.
La Seu d’Urgell, also known as the capital of cheese, and Puigcerdá, where Romanesque art is present throughout the town, are two of the towns you can visit.
These well-known towns in the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees, are followed by La Molina, Ribas de Freser, Lladurs, Tremp or La Pobla del Segur, which is one of our last stretches of this motorcycle route in the Pyrenees before returning to our starting point in Sort.
For those who love mountain routes by motorcycle, Route 260 more than meets travel expectations for all senses. In addition to enjoying a quiet road with spectacular views, this national N-260 runs through villages where it is worth making a stop.
