On this Cathare Trail (Camping) 4×4 tour, we start our journey at Dover and board the ferry to Calais. From there we have an eight-hour drive to Limoges for our first overnight stay. Sunday morning we leave Limoges for a six-hour drive to Foix. It is from Foix that we start exploring the foothills of the Pyrenees at a gentle pace to allow time to visit the many castles and medieval towns en route to the Mediterranean sea. We have a day to ourselves sightseeing in Collioure, a coastal town where the food and wine are outstanding, as you expect in France.
From Collioure, we head back inland to Carcassonne, and from there to Le Mans and on to Calais. In between the main destinations on this tour, we will be traveling the back roads and trails, and camping under the night sky, so please carry all-weather clothing and adequate food and drink, although there will be ample opportunities to stock up en route.
