Hiking in Spain - The Pyrenees (Chapter)
This is the Pyrenees chapter from Lonely Planet's Hiking in Spain guidebook.
The Pyrenees have an edge of both Spain and France to them, and possess a character and flavour all of their own. Each valley has a distinct look, life and climate; each trek is an unforgettable experience. No wonder these mountains are among Europe's hiking highlights.
