Things to do in the Languedoc:   Land Sports:   Horse Riding (Fr Equitation, US Horseback riding)

The area is ideal for horse riding (or walking or cycling or mountain biking) all year round.  There are many routes to discover in the Pyrénées and the Corbières.  Among them are:

Le Sentier Cathare.  From Port-la-Nouvelle on the Mediterranean Sea along the Pyrénées to Foix in the Ariège.  This is the most famous track in France.  Along it you will pass the ancient fortresses of Queribus, Peyrepertuse, Puilaurens, Puivert, Montségur and Foix.

The Transéquestre. The Transéquestre crosses the Aude département from North to South, from the Black Mountain to Carcassonne then Limoux and to the castle at Puilaurens
