activities » hiking & climbing

For walkers and climbers the region has some truly unique and exceptional landscapes with constant views of green valleys, snow-capped mountains, river gorges and sea.

This is Grandes Randonées country: the famous system of GRs - or long-distance routes that traverse the Pyrenees. They are marked by their distinctive red and white waymarking on stones, trees and on the ground.

They make for some of the most beautiful walking, on routes that criss-cross the French and Spanish border.


Self-guided walks
Canigou offers intermediate hikes as well as climbing. On its flanks you will find exceptional views east across the Roussillon plain towards the Albères, Perpignan, the Mediterranean and the Côte Vermeille.

For more mild walks, try the Corbières across Cathar country through Peyrepertuse, Puilaurens to Montségur.

We highly recommend that if you are going to go walking that you obtain a good quality map. Rando Editions produce maps at a scale of 1:50 000. The 'Top Series' provides more detail at 1: 25 000.


Organised walks and hikes
During the Spring and Autumn months, Can Llouquette is used as the base for organised walking holidays with a company called Outbreak Adventure Holidays.
