The Pyrenees are known for their amazingly beautiful nature spots. In Gavarnie, Cauterets, the Bouillouses Reserve, lakes, peaks and forests are nestled in the heart of unspoiled mountains, bordering Spain. Ideal for hiking and trekking, whether for the day or roaming over several days, the Pyrenees are the opportunity to discover real natural nuggets!

In Ariège, grandiose hikes, out of sight

Ariège is the least explored part of the Pyrenees, the least known, the one where we will have the chance to observe a quiet, preserved fauna, lakes nestled in secret valleys, summits from which the view will leave speechless! In short, where you will do your best hikes ! And all this 1 hour from Toulouse and Carcassonne!

Among these hikes, the most emblematic are certainly that of the Mont Valier, Lord of Couserans, the Pic du Mauberme, border with Spain, the Peak of Tarbesou and the ponds of rabassoles, the Montcalm and the Pique d'Estats, and the Bassiès ponds ...

Ariège is also the perfect destination for multi-day trekking, with its many loop or return itineraries, whether cross-border with neighbors such as Aude, the Pyrénées Orientales or even Spain! The most beautiful roaming hikes are:
