Things to Do

Pack as much or as little into your stay as you wish.

Whichever of the locations we offer you choose to stay in there are walks nearby – with the foothills of the Pyrenees offering you a diverse range of terrain to suit all ability levels. Trails are well maintained and way marked. Follow the grand randonnes of the HRP or GR10 that cross the local area. Information is available from the local tourist information offices and there are links below with lots of information about what is on offer.

Walks to the summit of the Canigou

 A challenge for those brave enough!

You can drive yourself or get a lift in a 4 x 4 up to the Refuge at Marialles and then the walk to the peak of the Canigou and back again in about 4 - 5 hours. The very last bit is more like climbing than walking I have heard but worth a go for those who like a challenge!
