Incredible nature spots

Stunningly beautiful, it's hard not to remain amazed at a view of the Pyrenees from the Pic de Saint Barthélémy, stay glued to the color of the Bethmale Lake near Saint-Girons, or Montbel, fall in love with a warm sunset at Prat d'Albis on the heights of Foix. Ariège is finally lucky enough to have so many wonderful spots, that it is possible not to meet anyone on the way to get to one of them.

A green lung in the HEART of the Pyrenees

Walking in the middle of forests like that of Sainte Croix Volvestre or Belesta, moving forward following the sound of streams, waterfalls, being amazed in front of a chamois, roe deer, or our dear marmots, this is how a journey to the heart of Ariège. It is the promise of wide open spaces, of course, but it is also the promise of a reconnection to the essential, to nature. 

To be able to breathe deeply again, to be able to freshen up the mind, cut off from everyday life, this is what Ariège offers to each of us.
