There’s no shortage of things to do in the unspoilt Têt Valley, where you can enjoy your fill of exhilarating experiences based on the region's terroir and wines – all to the great delight of the curious visitor!
Dominated by the iconic outline of the Canigou on one side, and bordered by the Mediterranean on the other, this fertile region is an out-and-out land of plenty nestling in the hollow of the hills of Roussillon. In this outstanding setting, where nature provides the most impressive spectacle, winegrowers and producers make the region pulsate with their passion. What better way to meet the key players than heading out on one of the four trails on the Route des Vins et des Terroirs that crisscross the valley?
Walking along the different circuits is the ideal opportunity to discover a wide range of local products designed for visitors. The local cottage industry is also rich and diverse: cheese, olive oil, honey, Catalan charcuterie, fruit and vegetables from market gardening – not to mention the wines, of course! The vineyards around and about put the spotlight on AOP Côtes du Roussillon, PGI Côtes Catalanes and natural sweet wines.
As you travel through the villages with their Romanesque architecture and bucolic roads, winegrowers and wine merchants will give everyone the warmest of welcomes. On your visits to the vineyards and tastings in the cellars, you can share a convivial interlude and interesting discussions with enthusiastic, exciting professionals. It’s also an opportunity to discover the full range of regional wines from the exceptional terroirs made with down-to-earth know-how.
From the vines to the flowering orchards, from mountainous landscapes to coastal beaches, from markets in village squares to the lively narrow streets of Perpignan, the Vallée de la Têt offers nothing less than a complete change of scene. Anyone who is a fan of outdoor activities, loves wide open spaces or adores gastronomy – not forgetting backpackers in search of adventure – are sure to find what they are looking for in the heart of this welcoming, bountiful destination!
