Exploring Cathar Country on foot, on horseback or by bike

Tranquilly discovering the sights of Cathar Countrye

It’s quite possible to enjoy a gentle exploration of Cathar Country, taking in the scenery at your own pace! Go walking, horseriding or cycling along the Cathar Trail (GR®367). From the Mediterranean to the piedmont plains of the Pyrenees, the 250 km itinerary features a succession of dizzying citadels which you can visit along the way: Peyrepertuse, Quéribus, Puilaurens, Aguilar, Puivert, Montségur… From the bottom of the valleys to the top of the castles, alone or with a group, on sections or in its entirety, the Cathar Trail experience is not to be missed!

Sites that anyone can reach.
Physical effort and plenty of energy are often required to visit the high-perched Citadelles du Vertige… along with a good dose of courage and a bit of spare time. But if any of these ingredients is lacking, you can enjoy the sights without having to make the climb. You don’t have to miss this!
