The Perics tour

Sport, Pedestrian sports, Hiking itinerary in Orlu
49.0 km

    There are several possibilities... Think of it as a warm-up.

    From Ariège :

  • Guidebook with maps/step-by-step
    The Tour des Pérics is an itinerary devised by the refuge wardens themselves, who use it from time to time to visit their "neighbors". It can start from any refuge, but in any case the variety of landscapes on the dividing line between Ariège and Capcir, and the presence of a rich flora and fauna (Orlu National Reserve, PNR des Pyrénées Catalanes) are a feast for the eyes! This incredibly diverse massif is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in the Pyrenees!
