 At a glance

This is a beautiful route, along ridges that overlook the Mediterranean and play leapfrog over the coves: every day you can choose between a coastal path, or a climb to the Pyrenean foothills to enjoy stunning vistas, then a descent through vineyards and fragrant maquis that go down to the water. 

Here is the daily menu for this holiday where the sun is king.
Your hike goes along the Albères with their fourteenth century signal towers, and then descends down to the sea where you will find the most beautiful coves.You'll be surprised how peaceful and quiet this lovely region is, from its trails to its fishing ports.

The Plus Points 

  • 2 levels for every stage: a coastal path or a path through the mountains.    
  • GPS data available.
  • Comfortable accommodation.
  • Circuit invented in 1996 by La Balaguère !
