Feel like a riding day? Don’t miss the “Voie Verte” connecting Perpignan to Thuir!

A Voie Verte is a path reserved for pedestrians, cyclists, rollerbladers, people with reduced mobility and sometimes horseback riders. Prohibited from motorized traffic, it is suitable for tourist, leisure, and everyday travel. Its aim is to ensure optimum accessibility for a wide public, while guaranteeing an appropriate level of safety.

This magnificent cycle path, built on a former railroad line, offers a smooth asphalt surface that begins near Perpignan station and continues to the Cémoi traffic circle. Passing through urbanized areas, the Voie Verte then climbs the hillsides, taking you through the region’s picturesque vineyards. The panoramas that unfold at this point are nothing short of spectacular, offering breathtaking views of the Aspres and the majestic Canigou on the horizon. The Voie Verte from Perpignan to Thuir offers an unforgettable cycling experience, where nature, culture and adventure come together in harmony.
