Col de Caralps

Driving the wild road to Col de Caralps in the Pyrenees

Col de Caralps is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.501m (8,205ft) in the Pyrenees, on the French-Spanish border. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

The pass links the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France and Girona, in Catalonia, in northern Spain. The road to the summit is totally unpaved and usually impassable in winters. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road.
