GLR 15 Route info
GLR 15 Region
The GLR 15 leads you through the eastern part of the French Pyrenees. It crosses the Departments of Pyrénées-Orientales, Aude and Ariège. Read all about this region down below!
Adventurising isn’t only about getting as fast from A to B! A Region has so much more to offer! That’s why I give you some suggestions about things to do while Adventurising the GLR 15.
Les Orgues d’Ille-sur-Têt
The organs of d’Ille-sur-Têt are some natural phenomena to visit in the Pyrénées-Orientales department! These towering pillars have been formed throughout the years. To visit this place, you need to pay for parking. During the evening hours, you’re able to see the pillars dance during sunset!
The House of Wolves
Have you ever encountered wolves on your adventure? Well, this comes close to it! This wolf sanctuary houses wolf packs from all over the world. Here you will find out that you probably don’t want to encounter them in the wild!
Located further to the west of the Pyrénées-Orientales department you find Mount Pic Carlit (2921m). This mountain is something to behold! Visit during sunset to enjoy the shifting colors of the mountain.
Cascades De L’Artigue
These waterfalls are an hour walk from the parking spot, offering a nice midday break during your adventure!
