The Ariège department is a largely unknown department which is situated next to Aude in the southwestern part of the Occitanie region and shares its borders with AudeAndorraHaute-Garonne and Pyrénées-Orientales.

It is predominantly a farming area as the soil is rich and fertile but more than 50% of Ariège is mountainous, with 490,965 hectares being covered by forests.

The region was originally part of Aquitaine and has retained many hallmarks of the Gascon culture and Gascon language. The department is also well advanced in the field of organic farming.
