Discover Ariège differently with our unusual tour
For this new escapade of discovery, we take you to the famous town of Foix.
To make the most of the day, we recommend getting up at dawn and being in a good mood…
As the journey from the campsite takes around 1 hour, the ideal time to leave is around 8.30 – 9.00 am.
The Groundhog’s reminder:
- Bring a pair of sneakers
- A sweater (yes, I know it’s summer, but where we’re going a little wool won’t go amiss)
For an early-morning appetizer, head for the Labouiche underground river.
For a voyage to the center of the earth that Jules Verne would not have denied…

Let’s go on an incredible adventure in the last century…
If you’re curious to know how people lived in the past, this immersive tour will be very instructive.
Stroll through the village streets and meet the artisans. They’ll share their passion with you. Here, you can watch these artists practise their art, and hear them speak movingly about it.
