Stay at a Pyrenean holiday chalet for your winter sports holiday, a superb location for skiing, cross country and downhill or even try white water rafting. Outside the winter sports season, the Catalan Pyrenees Regional Nature Park has a wealth of mountain biking and hiking tracks, horse riding and an aerial walkway. A superb location for photographers, artists and bird-watchers too. Not far away are lively resorts such as Argeles, with wide sandy beaches. Or visit the French Catalan city of Perpignan, full of bustling markets and quaint squares where you can browse for Catalan ceramics and textiles or marvel at the amazing thirteenth century Palace of the Kings of Majorca.
