The Pyrenean Haute Route is arguably the most spectacular and
challenging trek in the Pyrenees. The 800km high-level route
follows the main ridge of the Pyrenees from the Atlantic coast to
the Mediterranean coast, crossing the French-Spanish border many
times. It is a tough and unwaymarked route over remote and
challenging terrain, and is suitable only for experienced and
well-prepared trekkers. In this guidebook the trek is divided into
5 sections, with each section broken up into graded day stages.
Numerous variants are also described, including a three-day
alternative to avoid the third section for which mountaineering
equipment is required. The HRP is a serious undertaking and an
unforgettable challenge and this guidebook includes all the
practical information you need on facilities, accommodation and
equipment. It also describes optional ascents of 10 classic summits
in the Pyrenees: Grande Fache, Vignemale, Le Taillon, Pimene, Pic
Perdiguere, Pico de Aneto, Montardo d'Aran, Mont Roig, Pic de
Certascan and Pica d'Estats.
