The Pyrenees offer breathtaking and varying walking opportunities in a walker’s paradise. Indulge in casual strolls through beautiful villages or serious trekking in the rugged mountain terrain. The majestic mountains and stunning wild flowers offer a unique experience, ready to thrill you with natural beauty at every turn. For those more accomplished, there is the GR10 walking route.The GR 10 is one of the extensive Grande Randonnée (or GR) network of paths and trails. The trail crosses France, from the Mediterranean coast to the Atlantic coast, and runs almost entirely through the Pyrenees. While the trail is in France, much of it is near, or even on, the border with Spain. The trail can be walked in either direction, though some suggest that the West-East route is easier in the beginning, as it is both cooler and less steep than the corresponding start heading East-West.
