A tour through History

During a trip with Occitanya, history literally comes to life. Even small children will not forget a trip to the dark ages! A tour with a diverse range of castles, abbeys, medieval fortified villages and cities with fascinated stories about the Cathars, Templar knights, Troubadours, and life during the middle ages will charm you and your companions

A nature tour

Whether your preference is mountains, countryside or coastlands you will discover it all in this region. . Within a driving a driving distance of less than 60 kilometres from our departure point, you can visit a diverse range of nature reserves: vineyards, canyons, caves, salt lakes, “garrigues” and mountains. Our walks are adapted to suit every level

Adventure tour

Because of its variety of wonderful natural phenomena, there is plenty of adventure to experience,. There is a big range of nature walks, such as the ever popular river canyon walk, and we also offer bicycle tours, along the canal, as well as in the mountains. It’s also possible to do horse riding, kayaking

Relaxation

Vacation also means “relaxation” to a lot of people, so what about a picnic in the unspoilt countryside on the edge of a river, while children can play in the water? Or a relaxing day cruise aboard a beautifully restored sailing ship, enjoying a glass of wine in the shade of the plane trees along the banks of the "Canal du Midi" and the stunning views over the picturesque vineyards

Gastronomy and hospitality

Thanks to the Mediterranean climate, a number of typical regional products will always be somewhere on the menu. Both the gourmets and the kitchen princes (and princesses) will want to learn more about the Provencal herbs that you can find here in the wild "garrigues". Not to mention the wide range of wines from the Minervois, or the growing of olives and oysters, and learning where exactly the truffles comes from
