Pyrenees Competition

Win a copy of Sunflower Book's Pyrenees - Car Tours and Walks

This pocket-sized guide covers the entire Pyrenees range in France, Spain and Andorra, and describes well over 400 kilometres of walks - the equivalent of a coast-to-coast traverse.

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy walking in the Pyrenees with this guide book. None of the hikes require special skills (under summer conditions) and, if you are not very fit, simply turn back when you feel like it (although there are also specific short walk suggestions with most of the itineraries). Nevertheless, the authors (who have lived in the Pyrenees for 30 years) believe that “experienced and fit walkers will find much to enjoy, for we have included some of the wildest scenery in the Pyrenees, walked pilgrim routes and World War 2 escape routes, climbed to summits (like Canigou), enjoyed the habitat of marmots, vultures and lizards (the Pyrenean chamois), and not neglected the great and the famous (like the Breche de Roland)”. Paul Jenner and Christine Smith have also written the Rough Guide to the Pyrenees (1st ed) and the Berlitz Explorer guide to the Pyrenees.

Sunflower Books publish the ‘Landscapes’ Series, the ‘Walk&Eat' series and the Sunflower ‘Complete' series. Their authors know their chosen landscapes intimately; many live in the area, others visit frequently. They have written these books because they see the beauty and interest in these regions and want to share it.

If you are considering a holiday in the Pyrenees, then why not take a look at these independent walking holidays:

Cerdagne Explorer: Lakes, Mountains and Hot Springs

Pyrenees Balcony Trail: Azun Valley

Pyrenees Coastal Trail

We have 3 copies to give away.
