Cathar Castles or the Pyrenees : From Carcassonne, via the Canal du Midi and the Med to Montségur.

From the Mediterranean to the Pyrenees Ariegeoises in the heart or the sun blessed Corbieres region, or at Montségur is where you can find the secret trails and Cathar castles. Imposing stone castles built high up in rocky crags of pogs. These fortresses are the symbol of a tragic, political intrigue and drama that shook the South or France.

This walking holiday combines a historical interest that stirs the imagination as well as some memorable cycling through lush unspoilt mountains and valleys.
We offer the Cathar Tours as 5 to 12 days standard** packages(this page) or as superior*** packages , starting from Carcassonne.
