Cycling

Whether you’re an on or off-roader, there are more than enough cycling trails here to keep you happy.

Our favourite is the Canal du Midi trail which runs alongside the canal for 240km from Toulouse to the Coast. You don’t have to do it all – but however much you do, we’re pretty confident you’ll love it.

Argelès Adventure

Argelès Adventure, Argelès-Sur-Mer

If you have a head for heights you’ll love this adventure park in the tree tops with zip wires, Tarzan wires, swings and bridges. Start practising your jungle calls.
