A Spectacular & Diverse Paradise for Walkers
Wonderful walking in the majestic Pyrenees
The spectacular mountains of the Pyrenees stretch for 480km from the Atlantic coast across to the Mediterranean forming an impressive natural frontier between France and Spain.
They rose from beneath a shallow sea millions of years ago when the European and African continental plates collided. Since then the gigantic glaciers that covered most of Europe during the last great ice age have shaped the magical natural features we see here today – hanging valleys, vast cirques, sharp peaks and rugged crests.
The backbone of the range, the frontier ridge, lies just to the north of our base in Panticosa. It is a chaotic jigsaw of wild rock formations and crags, which reach for the sky with many soaring effortlessly above 3000m. A little lower down a majestic mountain landscape unfolds with a heady mix of lush green meadows, abyss-like canyons, awe-inspiring cirques, azure blue lakes, u-shaped valleys, pristine woodlands, sparkling tarns and cascading streams.
Not surprisingly, walkers have been coming to the Pyrenees for years, venturing into this magnificent terrain from picturesque mountain villages.
