Pyrenees High Route (HRP) Hiking Guide


One of the most dramatic mountain ranges in Europe, the Pyrenees mountains are located along the border of France and Spain.

These big mountains are home to several long-distance hiking trails, including the GR10 (on the French side), the GR11 (on the Spanish side) and the Pyrenees High Route (HRP, along the middle). The GR10 and GR11 travel at an elevation slightly below the mountain peaks and tend to pass through villages each night. The HRP, on the other hand, follows the highest elevations of the Pyrenees mountains, thereby providing more dramatic scenery and the opportunity for wild camping! The HRP is definitely our pick of the bunch.

You can read all about this epic long-distance trail in our Pyrenees High Route (HRP) Hiking Guide. But in case you don’t have time to complete the entire 497-mile journey(!) we suggest some shorter sections that cover the most stunning parts of the trail.
