Coll Midós

Coll Midós

Coll Midós is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.193m (7,194ft) above the sea level, located in the comarca of Cerdanya, province of Lleida, Catalonia, in north-eastern Spain, near the French border. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

Located in the Pyrenees mountain range, the road to the summit is unpaved. It links the villages of Arànser and Bescaran. It’s 20.5 km long, and recommended from late spring to early fall, since you´ll go through mountain roads where there is often snow. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime and can sometimes block some sections of the road, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. Along the way you can enjoy a high mountain environment typical of the Pyrenees area.
