The Pyrenean Haute Route
By Ton Joosten
The Pyrenees are on e of Europes prime walking areas. This detailed guide to 800km trek along the Franco-Spanish border, from Hendaye to Banyuls-sur-Mer. The unwaymarked route is described in 45 days, with 500 GPS waymarks, information on villages, mountain huts, guesthouses, hotels and campsites and variant routes to avoid difficult sections. Also ascents of ten classic Pyrenean summits beside the route.
The Pyrenean Haute Route is the most beautiful, spectacular and challenging walk in the Pyrenees, and has become one of the classic walks in Europe. Unlike the GR10 and GR11 the Haute Route crosses the French–Spanish border many times, exploring both sides of the mountain range and staying as close as possible to the main ridge of the Pyrenees. As a result the Haute Route leads the trekker through landscapes of immense variety and impeccable beauty.
The second edition of this guide is fully updated, with three minor changes to the route, which is described in five sections: through the Basque territory (9 days); highlights of the Parc National (7 days); Gavarnie to Salardu (9 days); Salardu to l’Hospitalet-près-l’Andorre (10 days); and through the Eastern Pyrenees (10 days).
