Salon Rando Pyrénées-Méditerranée
26th October - 27th October
As the last of the tourists head home and the temperatures drop away, autumn/winter is the perfect time to get out and explore the wild beauty of our region.
s’informer – s’équiper – préparer
Whether you’re taking an invigorating walk along the coastline or exploring the hidden gems of the Pyrenees, la randonnée (hiking) is a hugely rewarding activity, open to all budgets, all ages and all abilities.
Leisurely strolls, day hikes, multi-day hikes, Nordic walking (walking with poles), hiking holidays and treks; there is truly something for everyone in our beautiful region and you will find all the information at the Salon Rando 2019.
With over 2 million bikes sold in France each year, cycling has now established itself as a firm favourite with outdoor sports fans.
Cycling, racing, electric bikes, mountain bikes, group package holidays or bespoke trips created just for you, whatever you cycling interest, there will be an expert on hand over the weekend to answer your questions.
Between 10am and 7pm each day, you can take part in conferences, chat with guides, pick the brains of equipment specialists, meet with clubs, associations, nature lovers of all shapes and sizes… everything you need to prepare your next adventure!
