Cycling travel in the Cathar Chateaus Area

Cycling travel in the Cathar Chateaus Area

Bike Tour to visit the Cathar Castels in South France

7 days / 6 nights

The cathar castles were built on the top of mountains, so if you want to visit them you need to be firm on the pedals !

At Languedoc Nature, we know pretty well the area, so we organise quality routes. It means that we design the itinerary throughout roads with low traffic to let you discover peacefully the landscapes in Languedoc.

The choice of the hotels, gites, B&B, restaurants and other suppliers is one of our main concern. We are willing our clients to experience the best during their holidays with us.

Trip highlights: 

- bike trip from the shores of the Mediterranean to the Ariegean Pyrenees passing through the wild Hautes Corbières.

- the pleasure of cycling on small, unpredictable roads

- A rich heritage through the Cathar castles along the route.

- the encounter with an exciting story

- typical and welcoming villages

- the pleasures of the table and the good wines of Corbières... once the stage is finished!



Freedom formula

- You have the IGN maps (1/25000th) and a detailed topo-synthesis of the hike (cartographic documents).

- Your accommodation, your meals and visits are reserved by us.



This biketour is intended for people who are used to cycle on hilly routes. It is better to book this trip if you practise regularly sport all year long.



Tremendous itinerary which takes you from the Mediterranean Sea to the Pyrenees throughout the Corbieres vineyards and garrigues.
