HIKING – TREKKING – NORDIC WALKING
– Mountains, Deserts… and on Earth
The pleasure of discovery walk.
Hiking in the Pyrenees-Orientalesit is a privileged destination thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate and terrain between sea and mountain. The Department has kept a predominantly agricultural (wine and fruit) leaves a large part of the territory in a preserved nature. Former province of Catalonia, is a heritage steeped in history area. Many medieval fortresses with the Cathar castles are the remains of these ancient times.
During the geological history, during the formation of the Pyrenees, nature has shaped an eventful and varied relief with a multitude of mountain ranges that stretch across the Western Pyrenees:
- In the North, the Corbieres and the Fenouilledes
- From the West to the centre, the chain of the Pyrenees with the Canigou massif, Cerdagne, capcir and Conflent and the Aspres
- To the South, the Alberes and Vallespir, extension of the Pyrenees to the sea on the rocky coast ( Collioure, Port-Vendres, Banyuls…)
Between these different landscapes and reliefs, the hiker is here all the ingredients for a hiking trip rich and diverse in our Mediterranean sunshine holiday.
Hiking in the Canary Islands – Spain
A few hours of flights of the metropolis, of the Canary Islands offers a tropical exoticism in European territory. Gran Canaria (Gran Canaria), part of his round and mountainous configuration, is an unexpected paradise for hiking. More watered by the trade winds than its neighbors, its half North is very green, in contrast with its southern half more arid. Of volcanic formation, the island of Gran Canaria has such a diversity of landscapes and landforms, that every day is a new journey, with similarities with the ile de la Réunion, Cape Verde, or even the Sahara with its erg dunes plunging into the sea.
I propose you a stay with a selection of walks highlighting the landscapes, the picturesque and the nature of the island in all its greatness.
