Welcome to the Ariège Pyrenees!
THE DEPARTMENT OF ARIEGE nestles in the central Pyrenees, next to Andorra, its highest peaks visible from Toulouse. It is one of the most unspoiled regions of France, whose inhabitants have held fast to their traditions. The countryside is wild but easily accessible. Top grade trout streams rush down forested mountainsides into rivers where kayakers paddle. Waymarked walking trails lead to 3000 metres peaks where isards (chamois), marmots and even bears roam. Cyclists can take in a stage of the Tour de France, mountain bike down tracks or gently pedal in the valleys...
Our departmental capital Foix is just nearby and offers visitors a wide range of exciting activities.
The Lèze and Arize river valleys:
If you take the scenic route from Toulouse the tranquil Lèze River valley is your first introduction to Ariège with sweeping views of the countryside and the mountains. This area is a good base for visitors who want to divide their time between the the charms of Toulouse (45-60 minutes away) and the pleasures of the mountains (30-45 minutes). Also good stopping point if you've just arrived by air (via Toulouse or Carcassonne) and don't want to drive too far the first day.
