THE PYRENEES’ HIKING SHOULD BE YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE
Hiking in the Pyrenees can be the perfect way to escape the city and improve your mind and spirit. Besides, any sort of activity holiday is a great way to improve your fitness levels. A hiking holiday in the Pyrenees is a great introduction to high altitude climbing.
Hiking, running and climbing in the mountain environment takes a unique combination of stability, mobility, coordination, strength and endurance.
There are numerous nature parks in the Spanish Pyrenees, suitable for walks from a few hours to a few days. You can go on your own, but an organized walking tour is of course also a possibility.
Explore Spain’s Pyrenees on a walking holiday
Being a natural border between Spain and France, the Pyrenees region offers magnificent scenery and outstanding trails for hiking and cycling.
Through rocky scenery, past blue lakes and through Medieval villages you get the chance to hike through the Central Pyrenees. While crossing the main crest, you get to know the Atlantic North side as well as the Mediterranean South side of the mountain chain. There is hardly an area in Europe featuring such an array of high-contrast landscapes, such as the ‘Gran Bucle‘. During your hiking holiday you not only come across unusual natural beauty, but also get to know the culture and history of the local people.
With idyllic pastures, and deep forested valleys that are framed by jagged snowcapped peaks, with the incredible alpine scenery elevated by the medieval castles, historic villages and hill monasteries that dot the landscape. Can you think of something more beautiful?
