La Meilleure partie du Sentier Cathare

8-day self guided walk with a medium level of difficulty overnighting in the best hotels and chambre d'hotes on the route. We have chosen this part of the Sentier du Cathar because we believe that it is the most beautiful and interesting part. Nature that slowly passes from the Atlantic influence through to the tough vegetation of the Mediterranean, the spectacular views and of course the quietness.

Self guided walkers can start on any day of the week and book as many additional days as you want. Of course you can also walk larger parts of or perhaps the entire Sentier du Cathare. We can arrange this for you.

Full board arrangement including: accommodation, breakfast, lunch-picnic, dinner, unlimited spring water, relaxation massage, bagage transfer, maps and route description, toerist tax, transfer Tuchan - Puivert.

€ 990,- p.p.

Day 4
Rest day or climb the Pic de Bugarach (1230m.)

The Pech de Bugarach has inspired many stories and legends. In 2012 this mountain was in the international news because according to a small group of fanatics the world was coming to an end on 21/12/2012 and salvation was only possible by being on or near the mountain. The fact is that the rocks on top of the mountain should actually be sitting at the bottom...
