walking with climb09

It's hard to know where to start to introduce walking in this region, there is just so much to do here in the Pyrénées. The countryside surrounding us offers walks for all levels of ability and lasting from a few minutes to a few days.

The 'Tour des Hameaux' is a well marked route taking in the pretty hamlets of the area around Serres-sur-Arget and can be started from the house. The ridge overlooking our house gives incredible views over the peaks and valleys to the south, enjoyed on a variety of day walks. This ridge forms a major part of the Tour de la Barguillere, a multi-day route which tours right around our valley.

Further afield the Pic des Trois Seigneurs and the 3000m summits of Montcalm and Pic d'Estats provide excellent challenging walks.

This website gives good information for a range of walks in the Foix area and in the Ariegè as a whole.
