The GR10 Trail: Coast to Coast Through the French Pyrenees


FranceGuide to walking the long-distance GR10 across the Pyrenees from Atlantic to Mediterranean. This classic walk takes a lower route than the more arduous Pyrenean High Route. Nevertheless it passes through striking mountain country and gorge scenery. The easy ascent of the Pic du Midi d'Ossau is described as an excursion. The route takes about 50 days to complete, but the author divides it into sections conveniently tackled in a fortnight's holiday, with details of accommodation and transport. There is also invaluable practical information included for British walkers visiting France for the first time.

The GR10 is one of a number of official long-distance paths (Grandes Randonnees) in France. The GR system is very extensive and some 25,000+ miles (40,250+km) of footpath have been designated and waymarked. Each GR route has been allocated a number. The GR10 runs from Hendaye on the west coast through the mountains of the Pays Basque, Bearn and Hautes Pyrenees to Luchon. From here it continues generally in an easterly direction to pass the sparsely populated Ariege, then across the Pyrenees Orientales to end on the Mediterranean coast at Banyuls-sur-Mer. The total distance is some 538 miles (866km).
