Day 1: Arrive at Carcasonne

The walking spirit in Carcassonne is the desire to discover the Medieval City, the Bastide Saint Louis, the landscape or the banks of the water in a different way: from the edge of the Canal du Midi, the Aude. There’s a lot to explore with your family and friends! The town and the surrounding area can be discovered through the hiking routes like the GR36, which joins the Bastide Saint Louis to the Lac de la Cavayère and passes by the Medieval City, or the GR78, which is the Piémont Pyrénéen route towards Saint-Jacques de Compostelle…
