A trek on horseback around the Pic de Bugarach
From just 480€ per person in a dormitory, 540€ in a guest house for 2 people*
*Accommodation included (excluding guided tours and drinks outside meal-times)
The Pic de Bugarach became famous due to the interpretation of the Mayan calendar (21 Decembre 2012, The end of the World), but above all it is the highest point in the region overlooking the village of Bugarach from the top of its 1230m. It’s also a geological mystery, known as the “inverted mountain” but more than anything else it will give you the chance, in three days of trekking, to go right round it via ever-changing landscapes, from the gigantic fir-trees of the Forest of Fanges, the vineyards of the Fenouillèdes valley, the abandoned hamlets of the Plateau de Malabrac and the source de of the salted river Sals.
