Historical crossroads

To discover the real Pyrenees you have to go beyond the traditional stereotypes.

Sometimes is it necessary to go off the beaten path to find new surprises around each corner. Criss-crossing trails and links between the mountain and the plain. A land full of character with plenty of routes to explore it from top to bottom. One thousand kilometres along the GR 11, the star of the southern Pyrenees, along the GR 211, full of history in its role of connecting the people of Val d’Aran, along the GR 107, which follows the old route of the Cathars, along the so-called Camí dels Bons Homes (Route of the Cathars), or along the GR 92, which starts in Portbou and contains long coastline stretches, many of which use the old camins de ronda (coastal footpaths).

Walking for the joy of it through history and nature along the many sign-posted trails that can be found in the natural parks. And if you prefer pedalling to walking, there are special cycle touring routes that follow the old cog railway line: the greenway of Vall Fosca, right next to the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, the Cog Railway Route, the Iron Route or the Coal Route.
