Overview

This is a second edition guide to the Pyrenean High-Level Route – probably the most beautiful, spectacular and challenging trek in the Pyrenees. 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 on its way from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean.

This complete guide from a leading writer on the region covers the 800km route and breaks the unwaymarked route into 45 day trails, plus 500 gps waymarks. The guide includes practical information on villages, mountain huts, guesthouses, hotels and campsites, with variant routes and the ascents of ten classic summits.
