Vermillion Coast Trek (Collioure – Cadaquès)
This is a beautiful and quite scenic self-guided walking tour along the so called Vermillion Coast (La Cote Vermeille) of France and Spain, along ridges that overlook the Mediterranean and play leapfrog over the coves. The hiking trails follow the edges of the Pyrenees from French Catalunya over the border to Spanish Catalonia. Every day you can choose between a coastal path, or a climb to the Pyrenean foothills to enjoy stunning vistas, then a descent through vineyards and fragrant maquis that go down to the water. The options vary between 3,30 and 7,30hrs with accumulated height gains and descents of 450m to 1100m. Your walking trail goes along the Albères with their fourteenth century signal towers, and then descends down to the sea where you will find the most beautiful coves. You’ll be surprised how peaceful and quiet this lovely region is, from its hiking paths to its fishing ports.
