FAQs: Hiking in France

What should I know about Hiking France?

Forming a natural northern border with France and Andorra, the knife-like mountain range of the Pyrenees stretches 3,000 meters from north to south. It connects the three great mountains of the Mig (2,995 meters), the North Besiberri (3,008 meters), and the South Besiberri (3,023 meters). The Pyrenees is geologically older than the neighbouring mountain range of the Alps, having been created approximately 100-150 million years ago.

Why should I choose France for my Hiking adventure?

Breathtaking natural beauty

The Spanish Pyrenees is packed full of incredible natural highlights. The rush of rivers, whispers of legends swirling through the valleys, picturesque peaks dominating the Spanish wilderness. Fields of orchids and bellflowers give colour to the mountains, while eagles and vultures swoop over the heads of marmots, boars, and foxes that roam the wilderness.

Majestic trails

Classic trails and routes zig-zag and climb up and roll down the Pyrenees in the northeast of Spain. The Catalan mountains all offer quality climbing in the national park of the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici. This protected national park is home to winding meadows and forest that blankets the mountains, which soar over large lakes.

Rich and rugged culture

Resting at the foothills and in the valleys of the Pyrenees are numerous communities that call the mountains home. In Catalonia, diversity spreads from the mountains to the customs and traditions, which has cultivated a strong regional culture. The mountainside is scattered with Gothic buildings, castles, medieval murals and museums.
