Pyrenees

Midi-Pyrénées, France
 (36 votes, 36 reviews)
The Pyrenees (also spelled Pyrenées) (Spanish: Pirineos; French: Pyrénées; Catalan: Pirineus; Occitan: Pirenèus; Aragonese: Perinés; Basque: Pirinioak or Auñamendiak) are a range of mountains in southwest Europe that form a natural border between France and Spain. They reach 3,404m (Pico Aneto). They separate the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of continental Europe, and extend for about 430 km (267 mi) from the Bay of Biscay (Cap Higuer) to the Mediterranean Sea (Cap de Creus).
For the most part, the main crest forms a massive divider between France and Spain, with the tiny country of Andorra sandwiched in between. Catalonia and Navarre
have historically extended on both sides of the mountain range, with
small northern portions in France and much larger southern parts in
Spain.

Collioure to Banyuls-sur-Mer, France

10.1 miles
This walk at first follows streets and lanes but the last part is along trails on the cliffs and beaches. The last part has a lot of up and down traverses of the rocky head lands. But the scenery is fantastic, and there are pebbly isolated beaches along the way. I wouldn't want to do this in the hottest months. September was a great time to do it.

Comenzamos la excursión desde la localidad de Espierba enclavada a 1350 m en el centro del Valle de Pineta. Sobrepasado el pueblo, en dirección Oeste, dejamos el coche poco antes de un barranco. Más adelante un cartel recuerda que no está permitido circular con vehículos a motor por la pista.Es necesario estar atentos para localizar la senda, la pista la corta en varias ocasiones y no siempre están los mojones. Tras caminar...

Subida al Aneto (pico más alto de Pirineos) el 19-03-2009.Ibamos Pedro, Javi y yo.Subida dura por el fuerte desnivel a salvar, aunque el único punto objetivamente peligroso es la cresta final que antecede a la cima, el famoso Paso de Mahoma, donde hay que prestar mucha atención y cuidado pues a los lados hay sendos precipicios de más de 100m.Fabulosas vistas de todo el Pirineo español y francés desde la cima.

Esta ruta discurre totalmente por territorio francés. Pasamos –en coche- la frontera por el túnel internacional de Canfranc y atravesamos la población francesa de Urdos. A unos tres kilómetros, cruzamos el puente de Cebers situado a la derecha y ascendemos por una pista asfaltada en dirección contraria a la que llevábamos en la carretera (en dirección sur) hasta una curva en la que hay un espacio para aparcar ocho o diez coches. Allí mismo aparecen los primeros carteles para seguir –sin...

Le chemin de la Mâture est un des plus pittoresques passge du GR 10 qui traverse les Pyrénées. Ce chemin a été creusé dans la roche au 18 ème siècle pour exploiter la forêt du PAcq. La randonnée facile si l'on ne parcours que quelques mètres dans la falaise, elle est plus longue et difficile si on fait le tour par le Col d'Arras . La boucle par le col d'Arras prend...

La excursión se hizo el 29 de mayo de 2010 y partió desde La Sarra (Sallent de Gállego) hasta el Ibón de Respomuso (y regreso). Se había previsto ir hasta los Arrieles pero fue imposible debido a la gran cantidad de nieve y a no ir lo suficientemente equipados.Las fotos está bien ordenadas (tanto a la ida como a la vuelta), la ubicación es aproximada.Más fotos de este día

Première sortie de reprise pour le VTT au cyclo-club castanéen.Beau temps, terrain sec et 9 participants...Parcours roulant avec essentiellement du single en sous bois.A faire en cette saison car rapidement impraticable en cas de temps humide.Par je ne sais quelle sorcellerie, le profil apparaît à l'envers.Le tour se fait dans le sens des aiguilles d'une montre.

A great time of year to visit the Easter Pyrenees in either Spain or France. The end of vintage festivals are on, there are no mid-summer peak crowds. The views from the high points along the coast or west into the mountains are great.

La Cordillera de los Pirineos enlaza el mar Cantábrico y el Mediterráneo a través de 435 km de escarpadas cimas, profundos valles, ríos turbulentos, glaciares, ibones, extensos pastos... La variedad de sus materiales unas veces calizos, graníticos, esquistosos, del Flysh, conglomerados...permiten surgir una gran diversidad de perfiles montañosos, de valles, de praderas y de coberturas vegetales y poblaciones animales muy diferenciadas. El Aneto, su cima más elevada con 3404 m, se encuentra en la provincia de Huesca (Comunidad Autómoma de Aragón). Es una región maravillosa con magníficos y espectaculares valles y con preciosos rincones apenas visitados.
