Detailed walking guide with route maps and plenty of background information.
The Pyrenees is accomplished walker Kev Reynolds’ large-format Cicerone guide to one of Europe’s most famous and impressive mountain ranges. The guide gives a valley-by-valley description of the High Pyrenees from west to east and is a very useful reference to help identify the best locations for walking, mountaineering, skiing and climbing. Reynolds explores the entire stretch of the 400km long Pyrenees- from the Cirque de Lescun on the edge of the Basque country in the west, to the Carlit massif and Cerdagne to the east of Andorra.

The guide is divided into five main chapters - The Western Valleys, Cirques and Canyons, The Central Pyrenees, Enchanted Mountains and Andorra and the Eastern High Pyrenees - detailing the diverse outdoor opportunities throughout the Pyrenean chain. Classic walks and climbs are identified, as are routes up the classic peaks of the range. The guide is a useful reference tool for those intending to walk the longer routes of the GR11, GR10 and the Pyrenean Haute Route, as well as for visitors wanting to plan shorter trips or a variety of mountain activities. An extensive introduction gives practical advice on when to go, weather, getting there, travel within the Pyrenees, accommodation, maps and guidebooks and health considerations. Detailed area descriptions are accompanied by information boxes describing the best way to tackle certain routes and the varying possibilities available at each peak and valley, in addition to colour photographs illustrating some of the highlights of the Pyrenean chain.
