Does your rugby league team need inspiration? Why not train with Catalan Dragons, the only non-British team in the Super League? This lovely area of southern France, on the border with Spain, is the best place to play rugby league in the Northern Hemisphere, outside the UK.

Not only will your team have the opportunity to train with the Catalan Dragons, they’ll also get to watch the pro’s in action. Away from the pitch, the Pyrenees offer a great range of exciting activities, including white water rafting, paddleboarding and canyoning.

You’ll stay in accommodation specifically designed for sports groups. The facilities here include pitches, a pool and a beach volleyball court – so your team will have plenty to keep them busy and active!

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

We chose Halsbury because everything has been excellent for us for the past 15 years and we especially love the personal touch. The answer is always 'yes, we can do that for you'! As always, the experience of working with Halsbury on this tour was very good - everyone was very pleasant to talk to and helpful. They were always able to solve problems for us both in the build-up and during the tour. We consistently recommend Halsbury to other tour organisers, as they care about the tours they prepare and make sure they are tailored to our needs. — Brighton College , August 2023
