Do you feel like escaping? Discovering a mystery land where eagles fly above unique forests, where the enchanting charms of local wines get mixed with honey and garrigue flavours? Going in search of adventure on steep paths through genuine landscapes that host a millenary heritage? Welcome to Fenouillèdes!

“Adventures” mean … an adrenaline day in protected natural areas: via ferrata (free or with guide), hiking, MTB or trail in the morning; canyoning or speleology in Galamus gorges in the afternoon, and Saint-Antoine hermitage.

“Mysteries” mean … a day of myths and legends from Fenouillèdes, history and heritage: Chapel of Notre-Dame de Laval (listed 12th century altarpiece), Castel Fizel (defence tower), Château Saint-Pierre-de-Fenouillet, reliefs of Saint-Jaume gorges and visit of the area of the ancient fort of Caudiès-de-Fenouillèdes.

“Encounters” mean … a day of contact with the inhabitants of the villages of Haut-Fenouillèdes: discovery of ancestral know-how (leather and wood working), visit of farms and tasting together with the producers, encounter with the Fajas d’En Baillette, a unique tree, and with the furtive wildlife, if you are lucky.

“Sensations” mean … a day in a rich protected land full of feelings that will rekindle the hunters and gatherers you have inside in the company of the local wine-growers (discovery of grape varieties, lunch combining food and wine) as well as some intense moments offered around the four elements: pottery, landscapes along the lake, introduction to birdwatching.
