So for those of you who don't know I'm Arthur.
And a week ago and some finished the GR 10.

It's hard for me to summarize this article short Trek is just that was long and full details and experiences.

OK my contractions myself near pic d ' Ossau

Technical data and an explanation of the track click here


What is actually going on prinas?
Nice question.
Above all it prinas variety. This huge area and just everything.
That's exactly why it's so hard to survey the entire Trek.
Once you arrive, you will be able to select and utilize your time in there what you want. For example:
1. do you want to see only the high and snowy mountains with glaciers? Go to prinas.
2. you love green valleys with lakes and forests? Go to the Basque country.

And so on and more options. The hardest thing is to decide what you give up in the time of course.

Prinas trip options are varied.
You can concentrate on one area and do short trips in the area, find a cabin in the Woods and make into the wild or something. Or a specific area in 1 large. And a large variety.
But I concentrate in GR 10. That's what I did.

How to reach us
From beginners. Most comfortable to reach by train from Toulouse to 34.10 train price andai from Toulouse. Age under 25 so I had a discount (I think 25 percent)

For beginners. The city begins the Trek in the Mediterranean called banyuls sur mer has a railway station with a variety of options. Evidence caught away direct train to Paris.
In short you can get there from almost anywhere.

As the walking Greece
From the Atlantic to the Mediterranean Sea:
Advantages: as the weather gets more comfortable.
Finish in the Mediterranean resort town beautiful.
Written guides.
Cons: always in the eye this morning.

From the Mediterranean to the Atlantic:
Well just flip the f.


For quality
Very high.
If you stay on the Trek (and do/links to HRP variants) can always be safe for Bush.

Check quality

In general it is good check, but as always long for problematic regions. The regions growing fast or doing all sorts of earthworks and destroy.
So don't give up quality guide and maps of all regions. It saved me countless times.

Where buy maps
Everywhere.
Every souvenir shop and tobacconist (already?), even in the smallest village sell topographic maps quality of IGN.
But almost always only where they are located. So don't forget to buy a map when you arrive in the village in a new area.
I've never been in a situation where I went without having a map of the area and it was not difficult at all.

There are two types of maps:
1.1:25, 000 map very detailed blue but more expensive than other car about 30 institutions and to make the Trek. Average price 12 EUR
2. Orange/1:50, 000. Have 11 demands to end all Trek listed. Average price 10 euros

Degree of difficulty

As a rule I set for hard alpine trail On the other hand can be played with difficulty level. You can with the hunters and the rafiog to make you life easier with relatively short days or vice versa to get high and difficult variants or connect some sections section 1. Or each option. The ridge is at its peak and so you can get in shape with the trail if you smart, learn your body and your capabilities and set the pace and length of days.


When you arrive to the major areas of practice already prinas to highs of above 1500 meters a day.
Sometimes 3 very high daily passim. The length of the Trek also affected greatly.




What is the best season?

The prinas season begins in mid-June and ends in late September.
Generally 100% of apassim will be accessible in a season without any special equipment. Yet things more flexible space, and therefore should always ask for the nearest rafiog is the next segment is dangerous or not.
I went from late July until late September and the only encountered the need for special equipment whether made what sections or sections high HRP invented myself.


Special equipment + special abilities
If staying all the time just on the GR 10 don't need no ice equipment or other equipment or special abilities, such as climbing or surfing capabilities.


Logistics

Water
The accessibility of the water varies from region to region — of course it hasn't Israel trail in the South drier sections too, so it's important for me to stress here the importance of buying quality Guide to which indicate the points at which you can full of water throughout the day.
I'm good with 2 liters of water per day, not including washing and brushing in the morning and cooking at night.
I didn't want to carry too much water and so I order that I always sleep near a water source that I can be sure of quality.



Food
The Trek passes through many villages, especially in the first trimester.
Each course of the average of buying food for two days when the most I need to carry all the Trek was to 4 days.

The selection of food.
Purchases of food in villages along the Trek. (There are very few known רפיוג'ים supplies and not rely on this) that reason depends on the selection of dining there that day in the grocery store/supermarket in the same village. In large settlements probably can expect large stores with select, small villages further up the valleys do not expect large variety and sometimes even shop.  I learned to ask the locals in the village where I was about containers or places you can eat them in areas where I'm going to go and explain me where and what has Highly recommend this method in order to plan how much food to take with you.
Those who do not eat pork waiting for him the unpleasant surprise because all the sausages in the region may return.

Breakfast energy bars, chocolate spread or peanut butter.  For lunch, I eat cheese or ham sandwich and a couple of energy bars also been cooking pasta for dinner often and adding cheese, sausage or a can of tuna.

In prinas as in my home using a lot of dried sausage and cheese land that can be preserved for a long period without a refrigerator.

Weather
The prinas also very rainy season. Especially in the Basque country and prinas. As you begin to approach the Mediterranean the weather heats up and becomes drier.
I took over for two weeks in two months. Although rare, locals claimed it.
I highly recommend (can't have) for protection from rain.
I reached the beginning of the trek with the following equipment: hard covers, rain's case.
Buying during the Trek giiters too.
I got it without a storm although it certainly could help.

The bone-in a controversial topic. I've seen people even in storms. And don't go even if it drips. It all depends on the ability of the person in his equipment and most importantly the self-confidence to be the same person.
What I was doing? If I wake up in the morning and see that it's raining hard the walk home the same day. Fold the tent and a hard rain it's torture for me.
On the other hand if he catches me rain-either in the middle of the walk was completed that day no matter what. Demands that I be blila and near a water source that were most critical.

Low clouds/mist.
For that matter, it's exactly the same. Go inside a white dream without seeing anything. Usually comes with bad weather.
Could be dangerous because it reduces navigability.
Therefore-it is compulsory to take compass saved my life several times.

Snow
In season, you shouldn't run into this phenomenon considerably. Only in very high and passim for big stacks don't don't melt of winter.
If you remain on the Trek always snow equipment is not needed at all.
If your heart's set on high uriantim you probably notice them when you purchase your map. Duty to inquire at the nearest rafiog if the pass where you want to go can be special without crossing! Don't play with that saw people ptziyut severe injuries!



Wind
Another thing quite dangerous not anticipated.
Twice I went to dangerous situations because of the wind.
Once the wind picked me up and threw me a few feet in the air and rolled me on the side.
And the second time was almost a ridge.
So learn from my experience if you and you feel the wind probably get several times when ascending.
Me if I was feeling that I had to resist the wind in order to keep moving or it can't deflect me from my gait is a bit too strong wind can already do high/dangerous thing.



Sun
The season most of the time the weather and Sun.
But those who used to serve, wouldn't say too hot.
The average tmprotora is about 25-27 degrees. Relatively comfortable for us. There were only a few isolated days I need to apply sunscreen. And I'm a white guy. The long sleeve t-shirt (which I use in the Israel National Trail (INT) to shield myself from the Sun) I sent in the last packet in the Trek because I used it at all.


Well continue.


Where sleep
There are several accommodation options at prinas.
1. Refuge. A cabin in the mountains where you can buy a meal (usually don't sell food only meal), fill water to the shower and to bed.
Sample menu:
A can soda-3 euros
Beer-4 euro
Sneakers/Mars/toicas-2 euro
Omelette with vegetables and ham 5 euros
Coffee-tea-2 euro
Dinner 14-15 euros

Appendix rafiog dinner: it's important for me to emphasize the experience of eating at rafiog. Yes it's expensive I agree but if you really want to taste something unique (literally) treat yourself to a meal at least once rafiog 1. Why Because the food is home-cooked food and restaurant food. Serve a considerable amount of food (refill until you can't anymore) and the food is food that optimized for walking in the mountains. Another important thing is to eat in the dining room and always fun and funny name and know new people, share experiences or routes and areas.
Don't remember her meal 1 and don't laughed her people.

Sample menu for dinner at rafiog includes: always 3/4.
First packet will always be rich Chowder.
Her second full juicy meat dish with dressing changes, plus any carbohydrate rice or mashed potatoes or pasta.
Then serve any hard cheese (not everywhere).
And then a pie or cobbler katloni cream or floating Island (dessert prini type) depending on the region where you are.



This is the rafiog near VIGNEMAL mountain at a height of 3100 m. A variant of the GR 10. I'm a photographer from (previous image)



In the rafiog Canal between 14-16. Dormitori bedroom. Large bedroom with sleepers. By old people who don't know.
Advantages: * new people.
* Sometimes the girls look good.
* Not dull evenings (wait 3 months only get be how difficult it is in the evening when what to do)
* Cozy

Disadvantages:
* It's hard to sleep because someone always snore or something.
* Sometimes too hot.
* No privacy.
* Expensive.

Gite ' Detap.
In plain English-Inn. Same as rafiog in the mountains (Trek falls as much to the valleys and villages).
A night in the jungle.

    Guys, I owe you an apology for update every time some just don't like to be at your computer for a long time. It's really hard for me to write a lot.

    Excellent description, thanks for the post.

    What is the cost of a trip. Every few days? With this directory. If you had the option been going in the opposite direction (East to West)?

    What are the main differences between the Spanish side (GR11) (GR10)?

    Very variable cost, days not spent anything because I slept in, went all day and went to sleep.
    On the other hand, some days I ate dinner before and at 30 euro that was hungry and alone.
    See detail up rates and understand more or less about how it comes.
    Remember that almost every day you can sleep in the rafiog or this type of hostel and eat at the same places or small restaurants in the villages on the way (if that).
    It's all a question of how much you want to spend per day and some want to trek out from you. I also bet you very quickly find the style preference. For example, I'd eat a while 2 breakfast one very early and one a little later, then made myself lunch and evening trying to eat dinner in rafiog 'cause it's filled with carbohydrates and proteins and the way makes communicating with humans that was missed.

    -Neither have the rest, when I arrived to the village is impressive having nothing to do with it or it has interesting people (remember I was alone the whole Trek) so I stayed. Assumed even when the weather was very wet, and not lacking in certain areas.
    On average would get one rest day a week and a half.

    Directory-never used the manual, and I can't help you on this one, but I did see some travel groups with guides. Suggest you search online.

    To go from East to West – in my opinion it doesn't matter so much where to start, you might even be easier to start in the East because the Sun didn't bother. Although finishing the Trek in the Mediterranean more fun than.

    The main differences between the 10 and 11
    I wasn't Spanish side therefore tell you what I know of the rumors and what was my guide on the Trek.
    There are fewer humans (although I hardly saw people in 2010 in spite of what they say and went in season)
    Spanish easier physically, meaning there are fewer ups and downs.
    The Spaniard goes through fewer villages and therefore harder to swarm.
    Marked as good from the Frenchman.

    About the difference between ל11-10 I went the HRP and so I got to see a little of this and a little of that.

    According to my impression-the main differences are:

    The northern slopes (France) big steeper and therefore is a bit harder.

    Overall, the French side weather-i.e. more humid with rain and fog.

    About hard check me because I wasn't fully not this and not that, in these passages I met actually trails highlighted 11 was better for my taste (even the Spanish to check).

    According to the comments, the gr11 magician.

    What you decide or delicate 10th 11th will be in the beautiful and scenic views and also his special culture, so I'm not worried about your pleasure.

    About the tutorial, I was looking for but couldn't find that friendly outside request relative to find it for sale in stores. I bought instead of manual teriilbliser. I really enjoyed him. Apart from the story, and the explanations of each and every day including ascending and descending accumulates it also has commercial attachיs stationed the culture and fauna and more useful information about each area.


    The flights to the two sides that want to save money.
    Anyway I knew I could stay in Europe just three months because of an agreement to play between the two countries and as a result I have no visa.
    And appreciated more or less that 20 10 GR and GR won't take over 3 months. Arthur 40948.0903125

    Hi Arthur,
    Although it's been awhile since I posted that message, but I wanted to ask.
    I think doing the GR10 in full in the following semester break us. I limited financially and would like to save as much as possible. Therefore, for me to give up on the bed not my tent, and hot food (except to buy raw products and cooking gas burner).

    Would love if you could give me an estimate for how much we can download the daily budget in the most efficient

    Thanks in advance

    Must ask what does that mean? This thread allowed to die. Another 26000 views and I go through with the ALTA VIA available

    Well, about your question.
    If you're planning your trip, so it will be very cheap.
    It is difficult to give an estimate about the cost of the day because you don't get most days money. But once in 4-5 days when you stop at the market institutions to replenish the food and gas.
    Purchase of two three days in containers in the villages along the Canal around the 15 euros (looking at my book where I put all the expenses during the trail)

    If you can resist the temptation of eating in a restaurant/a beer after a day walking with 3 passim tell me how. Arthur41083.6472453704

    Thank you
    I got the answer I wanted to hear!

    I'm not strong in front of culinary temptations.
    But whenever I stand against temptation, I remind myself.
    It instead another trip next year.
    Hope this works.

    There's no way.
    I'm really in favor of saving that total pick money neither from the trees but may not need to economize.

    Listen, what I liked so much the path and I think him so much? Not only because of the amazing views but also because he simply pirinith experience.
    In one village I dance celebration slepton Basque mountain with the sheep herder, who works alone on the mountain each summer, the church built 900 years ago and spoke about God with Christians, ate local food and drank local beer, slept in youth hostels managed by local families, ate dinner and drank 2 liters of beer at the small village opened an Anglo-Saxon couple with a strange love for mountains ... ... ... ... ...
