The Ariège offers a wide variety of landscapes, the Couserans region lies in foothills of the Pyrenees where open landscapes and gently sloping hills alternate. You can also walk in the high mountains along the French - Spanish border. The Montcalm with its 3077 meters is the highest peak in the region. Something for everyone. Besides the exceptional flora, the fauna is also very varied, from wild boars, chamois to griffon vultures. The GR10 crosses the department from east to west.
