Sports and wilderness in the Ariège mountains

Ariège is a hotspot for sports lovers and adventure seekers. Countless footpaths take you to mountain peaks or you can do something different like a horse or llama ride!

Hit the slopes on a mountain bike or cycling tour to experience the magical Tour de France stages.

Home to streams and 400km of signposted riverside paths, Ariège has stacks of sensational sports such as canyoning, canoeing and even cable skiing at Mercus water sports centre.

Reach new heights and ascend the 1800 equipped paths which have made Ariège climber heaven.

Fly like a bird and go paragliding for an incredible and unforgettable experience.

You can also try your hand at treetop adventure, caving, paintballing and dog sledding.

Every Sunday evening (July and August) the Camping des Grottes campsite invites new arrivals to get together for a welcome drink where you can get information from mountain sports professionals in attendance presenting their activities.
