Overview

One of the world’s premier horse racing events, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, known to enthusiasts as the Arc, always promises an electric atmosphere.

Held at the spectacular Paris Longchamp Racecourse, the world’s top prize never fails to deliver top-quality racing. This is one of our favourite horse racing holidays at Spectate, and we truly do pull out all the stops.

Our experienced team has attended the Arc for many years, and we’ve built up strong contacts and plenty of insider knowledge.

We are delighted to offer packages to the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe 2024. Our packages include Finish Line Enclosure admission to the racecourse, with a choice of upgrades available to further your enjoyment of the day.

We offer a wide range of hospitality and race viewing options including complimentary champagne, access to private betting areas, paddock access, finish line grandstand seats and more. A dedicated tour host will be on hand throughout the weekend, so you’ll always have a point of contact for any assistance or recommendations you may need.
