The Spanish Pyrenees: Gr11

Walking the GR11 (La Senda) trek takes you through Spain's Pyrenees from the Atlantic at Iruns to the Mediterranean at Calaques - one of the world’s great trekking routes. Through wild country of great beauty and with good facilities and waymarking the 840km, 46 stages and 40,000m of ascent and descent make for a great expedition.

The Spanish Pyrenees present a wonderland to the holidaymaker, whether backpacker, botanist, canoeist, cyclist, entomologist, ornithologist, mountain biker, skier, walker or simply anyone with a love of mountain scenery. In recent years the mountain organisations and authorities in the administrative districts of Guipuzxoa, Navarra, Aragón, Andorra and Cataluña have got together with local villagers to arrange the waymarking of a coast to coast (Atlantic to Mediterranean) long-distance footpath through the Pyrenees on the Spanish side. Designated the Gran Recorrido 11, GR11 for short, it mirrors the French counterpart, the GR10. This has opened up miles of waymarked footpaths and tracks in an ever-changing environment, often in remote and high area, to numerous enthusiastic walkers of many nationalities, though the vastness swallows them up so that those seeking solitude will also not be disappointed.

The GR11 is now a truly high quality, high-level mountain trail, affectionately known as 'La Senda' (The Track). A combination of spectacular high peaks, glistening tarns, deep green valleys and expanses of wild beauty as yet unseen by many visitors make the range an excellent choice for the adventurous walker – in addition to a moderate climate and easy access.
