Occitania and its surrounding areas are becoming increasingly popular. More and more people are coming here to enjoy the stunning natural beauty and the interesting historical sites. Both individual tourists, companies, schools and tour operators are interested in organising tours to this beautiful region of France. We are here to help you organise them.
Cathar Country Tours
The most popular tours include a visit to the enigmatic village of Rennes-le-Château, Alet-les-Bains, Rennes-les-Bains, the Cathar strongholds of Montségur and Puilaurens, the troubadour castle of Puivert, the Gorge de Galamus, the largest medieval fortified city in Europe; Carcassonne and the coastal town of Collioure. Around these and other highlights in this gorgeous region (e.g. Vals, Mirepoix, Foix and Tarascon-sur-Ariège) we can build a custum made tour for your group and help you find the perfect accommodation. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
The French Pyrenees have played an important part in European history. The area is therefore rich in important historical sites, all set against the backdrop of the breathtakingly beautiful mountain range that forms the border between Spain and France. During this tour you can combine some of the popular highlights with e.g. the Hermitage of St. Anthony of the Desert, the rock church of Vals, the prehistoric caves and park, ancient abbeys such as St. Michel de Cuxa, fortified towns like Villefranche-de-Conflent, the Donjon D'Arques, Château de Termes and Villerouge Termenes. The choice is yours.
Photography & Gastronomy; Tours with a Theme
More and more people come over to Occitania on specially designed wine & gastronomic tours. And of course, Barinca can create such a tour to your wishes. But there is also a growing demand for photography tours, e.g. from photographic societies. Occitania is a wonderful place, filled with excellent opportunities for photo enthusiasts, presenting new, breathtaking views around each corner. We can create a tour with multiple photo stops and take your group to the most amazing sites. Your guide, Anneke, is herself an enthusiast, so she knows all the best spots. And while you are at it, why not combine a photo tour with gastronomic meals and wine tastings? When in France...
