Trekking in Spain: explore the best National Parks in the Pyrenees

The Pyrenees are a mountainous system that extends in an east-west direction for 491 km, from Cap de Creus in the Mediterranean to its junction with the Cantabrian Mountains in the Pamplona fault, serving as a natural border between France and Spain. On its northern slope, we find the French regions of New Aquitaine and Occitanie, while on the southern slope there are the Spanish regions of Catalonia, Aragon, Navarra and the Basque Country. In its center, we find Andorra, the only country nestled in the mountain range, also called the country of the Pyrenees.

The Pyrenees have a lot to offer. They are a paradise for lovers of nature and sports, which can be practised 365 days a year with activities such as skiing or snowshoeing in winter, and hiking, biking or adventure sports in spring, summer and autumn.

 

There are a large number of hiking trails along its numerous path networks. The best known and larger is the GR11 Pyrenees Trail, which crosses the entire mountain range in 46 stages and offers us all the possible landscapes of the Pyrenees.

We also find popular trekking routes between mountain refuges:

Carros de Foc: a circular route that joins the 9 shelters of Aigüestortes and Lake Sant Maurici National Park, and that can be done between 5 and 7 stages, depending on the time and physical condition of each hiker.

Senda de Camille: a 7-stage cross-border route that runs through the Natural Park of the Western Valleys of Aragon and the French Pyrenees National Park.

High Route of the Lost Ones: a cross-border route that passes through the highest calcareous massif in Europe and runs through Ordesa & Monte Perdido National Park, as well as the French Pyrenees National Park.

Cavalls del Vent: circular route through the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park that shows the two slopes of this mountain range located in the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees.
