Pyrenees Walking

 

How to get here

Pyrenees Walking is based in Biert in the Couserans area of Ariege, a departemente in the Midi-Pyrenees region of the south of France. Most of our treks are based in this area. Before booking flights etc please check that your trek is based in the Couserans.

Getting here by air from the UK or Eire:

Toulouse Blagnac international airport. You can fly to Toulouse from

Heathrow (BA)
Gatwick (Easyjet)
Birmingham (BMI)
Bristol (Easyjet)
Leeds-Bradford (Jet2)
Manchester (Jet2)
Edinburgh (jet2)
Glasgow (Go Voyages)
Dublin (Aer Lingus)
Shannon (Go Voyages)

We can arrange to have you collected from the airport. If you wish to travel independently or spend time in Toulouse before joining the trek, you can get a “Navette” shuttle bus from the airport to the city centre for 5€. They run every 20 minutes and take about 20-45 minutes depending on traffic. The navette takes you to the Gare Routiere (bus station) which is next door to Gare Matabiau, the main railway station. From there you can get a ticket for 16.80€ which takes you to Saint Girons via Boussens. The journey to Boussens is by train and from there by coach service. We can pick you up in Saint Girons.

Carcassonne Airport

Currently only Ryanair fly into Carcassonne. You can fly from:

London Stansted
Glasgow Prestwick
Dublin
Liverpool
Bournemouth
East Midlands

We can arrange to have you picked up. Travelling independently will probably necessitate going to Toulouse by train,which is easy and takes about 40 minutes. See above on how to get to the Couserans from Toulouse.

Getting here by air from other countries:

Please go to the Toulouse Airport official site or the Ryanair bookings site for more information.

 

Getting here by train

It is perfectly feasible to come by train from the UK or elsewhere in Europe. The normal route from the UK is via St Pancras on the Eurostar to Paris, then by TGV (High speed train) to Toulouse or Foix, Note that you have to change stations in Paris, and that TGVs MUST be pre-booked. If you select an appropriate train you can stay on it from Paris to Foix, where we can arrange to pick you up. Currently the Eurostar leg of the journey is 69 return. If you book ahead the journey from Paris to Toulouse costs under 20€ and the journey back under 30€ !
