GR10

The GR10 is a wonderful & dramatic 415km long distance trail following the length of the Pyrenees Mountain chain between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. You'll amble through stunning scenery that varies enormously, with flower filled meadows, sparkling lakes, cirques and high summits. You’ll get a taste of many different cultures, from the Basque country in the west through to Catalonia in the East. Each valley you pass through has its own distinct flavour. It is a great way to explore local life and to discover different cultures and traditions as you head through the Pyrenees.

Our GR10 trek is split into 8, one week parts which vary in difficulty and character. Overall the trek is strenuous with many long and difficult days. The different walking holidays can be put together to form a longer trek if desired. The first section through the Basque country is easier than the sections which follow as you head into the Bearn and then the higher mountains of the Bearn. Just like the Basque country, the Bearn has a unique culture and identity. On the second leg of the trek you'll disover the canyon of Holzarte and its famous bridge and the beautiful glacial cirque at Lescun.

Part 3 enters the Pyrenees National Park and traverses beautiful mountain scenery including the Ossau, Arrens and Estaing valleys with picturesque lakes and high summer pastures surrounded by high peaks.
