The newest and most exciting addition to our French Rugby Tours is Perpignan. Separated from Spain only by the Pyrenees, the city is a colourful blend of inter-twining streets, large squares, numerous cafes' and some bars championing the local passion - Rugby.
Perpignan’s friendly locals provide a warm welcome to one of the most fascinating areas of Europe, blessed with a wonderful climate, rich wildlife, a spectacular coast, beautiful scenery and astonishing history. Located on the South coast of France, bordering Spain, the Catalan city is worth a visit.
The local team of course is USAP Perpignan, they used to be a force to be reckoned with but now they play their rugby in Pro D2. The Catalan club are at the top of a huge tree of rugby across this stunning area of France. It isn't just rugby that is booming in the South of France, several sporting events are held here each yeah and the state of the art infrastructure is exceptional, from Olympic sized swimming pools to cycle tracks, Perpignan is a sporting hove within the Catalan City.
It is a truly amazing experience to play a fixture in this region, as the competition and hospitality post-match are second to none. Whilst on tour, we strongly recommend a day in the Pyrenees for some outward bound activities.
