Climbing Canigou in Winter and Summer

Post by GrahamC »

Hi all, this is really a question about the access options to le Chalet Les Cortalets. I’m finding it hard to get definitive info so I hope someone can help!

As I understand it, the mountain access road is restricted in summer to 4WD taxis only, and is closed completely in winter. Can anyone confirm this?

Also, the chalet is non gardee in winter but is the door still open, allowing you to bivvy for the night?

All info gratefully received!

Apparently yes. It has a perfectly serviceable website, here
