Ancient and mysterious, the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France is blessed with rich history and pleasing landscapes. Hilltop castles, Roman ruins and rocky outcrops dot a gentle landscape of sunbaked vineyards and shrubby prairie, pristine national parks, tree-lined canals and busy Mediterranean beaches.

Join us as we walk and cycle down ancient paths through vineyards, orchards and medieval villages, exploring Roman roads and aqueducts and the famous cliff-top Cathar castles. Discover the delightful scenery and intriguing history that make this a rewarding destination for hikers and culture buffs alike.

Visas

Visas not required for citizens of Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand for up to 90 days in a period of 180 days for all Schengen countries (see www.schengenvisainfo.com/schengen-visa-countries-list/ for countries part of the Schengen). Please ensure your passport is stamped on arrival in the Schengen area. For all other nationalities and for longer stays in countries covered by the Schengen Agreement (Australian New Zealand, Canadian and US passport holders), please contact the relevant embassy. Stays of longer than 90 days in the Schengen area require a long stay visa for the country you are spending most time in. However long stay visas are unlikely to be issued unless there is a valid reason (eg. studying in country). Unfortunately we cannot assist in obtaining visas for long stays due to individual country visa requirements.

Money and valuables should always be stored safely when travelling. Keep your passport with you at all times and do not leave it in your main luggage.
