Activities around Carcassonne

Besides visiting the world-famous medieval city of Carcassonne, vacations in Cathar country are incredibly diverse.

Welcome to the countryside! Enjoy the surroundings of Carcassonne, the quiet little corners, like the Canal du Midi, and its towpath, connecting Toulouse to the Mediterranean, also classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll enjoy its coolness and surrounding shaded areas.

In the same vein, the Narbonnaise Regional Nature Park, not far from Carcassonne, France, is an extraordinary park where you can observe 300 species of birds!”

Other animals (3,800) await you in the large reserve of Sigean, where they live in semi-liberty.

Extend the coolness by visiting caves and chasms (Cabrespine chasm, soft eye in the Clape massif, Aguzou caves, Limouzis caves) and the Corbières massif.

Once you’ve descended from the mountains, reach the sea by sunbathing on the beaches of Leucate, near Carcassonne, a mecca for kitesurfing.

For lovers of old stones, there is an embarrassment of riches on the agenda for visiting the region’s Cathar castles.

The Cathars were Christian religious who dissented from and were persecuted by the Roman Church.

The castles of Puilaurens, Peyrepertuse, Lastours, and Queribus are some of the best known, in Occitania.

These medieval sites are exceptional, as they are located on rocky spurs, isolated from everything.
They tell the story of French history, in a troubled time rich in tragic events.

The Montagne Noire, located further north in the department, is also known for its beautiful hikes, its cool waterfalls such as the 90-meter-high Cubserviès waterfall! This mountainous massif, located in the extreme south of the Massif Central, bordering the departments of Aude and Tarn, offers a peak at 1211 m altitude, the Nore peak, allowing you to discover a superb panorama of the Pyrenees, the Corbières, the Mediterranean Sea, the Toulouse plain and the Lacaune mountains.

You will also discover castles, for example that of Saissac, located at the entrance to the Montagne Noire.

The Villelongue abbey, built in the 12th century, by Cistercian monks, offers a majestic example of the southern Languedoc Gothic style of the 12th and 13th centuries.
