Walking holidays

In the French Ariège, close to the Spanish border, you will find one of the most unspoilt walking areas in Europe. It is unlikely that you will come across a black bear, but actually some still live here! Nature is really dominant in the Ariège and the area is quite popular among holidaymakers who are fond of walking. A large part of the population depends on agriculture and livestock and the Ariège is one of the least populated areas in France.


The Mont Valier Massif is one of the largest nature reserves of the French Pyrenees and has a population of around 900 Isards (Pyrenean chamois).

The Pont Valier is one of the highest peaks in the Couserans (2838 meter) and absolutely worth climbing!


The famous GR10 also crosses this region, with the Mediterranean on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Take a look around places like Seix or Oust or the bigger towns of St Girons and St Lizier. There is something special to be found in each town or village: an old Roman church or a busy market, a little vineyard or a dairy farm making its own cheeses. Visitors are welcome and it is often possible to taste and buy the products.


On www.wikiloc.com you will find numerous walks in the vicinity of Daumazan-sur-Arize!
