The Pyrenees offer great variety to the walker. Serious hikers will love the opportunity to explore challenging peaks and off the beaten track valleys whilst those who prefer an easier pace can stay closer to towns and villages and enjoy the Midi Pyrenees' wealth of culture and history. Hiking ideas here include the recently developed coast to coast trail that links the Atlantic and the Mediterranean whilst the French GR10 and Spanish GR11 offer spectacular, unspoilt scenery. Head to the central Pyrenees and summit snatchers have no fewer than 60 peaks over 3000m to explore. Alternatively, the lower slopes, valleys and lakes make beautiful days out.
