Pyrenean Cathar Unaccompanied Freedom Trek

Description Schedule Dates Photos Guestbook 

Description

For confident riders with trekking experience, every week from mid-June to mid-September, we offer treks without a guide. We will assist your orienteering by providing a GPS unit with the route and the map. We take care of the transport of your luggage as well as the accommodation and meals. We provide you with horses well experienced in travelling the routes of the Pyrenean Cathars.
Swimming in Montbel lake, visiting Puivert Chateau, the Gorges de la Frau, galloping along mountain ridges: you will follow the routes taken by the last Cathars fleeing the Inquisition. An unforgettable adventure!
