Has anyone used this tunnel back into France. Tried to get information re weather and size of vehicle allowed and with gas tank or not but failed miserably so hoping one of you kind people has used it and can fill in some info !
Articulated lorries use it daily. gas no problem. Normal sized excellent tunnel.
There is normally a camera for som port although it is actually above tunnel in the Col du Som port itself.
Spanish side is CanFran or Candanchu for weather & som port the French side http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-montagne/somport/64490
We did it a couple of years ago. It was easy and pleasant. There's a good aire at Sabinanigo a few miles before the tunnel on the Spanish side. When we were there it cost 4€ for two nights including services and electric. A nice town with some shops and restaurants and views of the mountains. Enjoy!
Used it many times...
No issues, as mentioned Artic trucks use that route all the time..
Go on youtube and you will find plenty of video about it.
Nice road in summer but in winter make sure you check weather forecast, have known them to place temporary, compulsory snow chain requirements along that route when snowing.
Spanish side is better than the French one...
There were no tolls in October. The roads on the Spanish side are excellent although considerable re-construction was taking place. On the French side I had to wince a few time as large trucks wound their way around the sometimes fairly narrow bends. It really is an excellent route otherwise.
Scenery is stunning on Spanish side.
