The traverse of the Spanish Pyrenees
This comprehensive guidebook to the magnificent GR11 trail, which runs 820km from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, provides everything trekkers will need to take up the challenge – detailed route description, excellent photographs, lots of background information and unique, custom-produced maps. This glorious traverse of the Pyrenees, on the Spanish side, is a serious challenge – passing over a succession of high alpine passes where boulderfields, scree slopes and occasional snowfields may need to be crossed. It is presented in 47 stages of 8-31km.
It is well waymarked and has regular opportunities to top up on food and drink, described within the routes and in a detailed place-by-place appendix at the back. Also included are bad weather options – although the weather is often good along this route – detours to find accommodation at some points, and advice on where to stay, supplies, language and logistics, as well as a glossary including Aragon, Basque and Catalan words, to help you find your way.
