It is hard to overstate the beauty of this part of France. The rolling plain of the Languedoc transforms into the rugged majesty of the Pyrenean peaks within half an hours drive.

This terrain offers every type of scenery. Open views to the North and Toulouse. Gentle, verdant, forested foothills scattered with picturesque villages. Deep shaded valleys carrying mountain streams into the Ariege river. And the stately granite peaks of the true Pyrenees.

Every type of walking is available from gentle strolls to adventurous "randonnée sportif" (requiring some knowledge of climbing).

Walking is well organized in the Ariège. Many routes are laid out, marked and maintained taking you through some of the most spectacular scenery you will find in Europe
