Hi, looking for assistance in planning a trek in the summer. Plan on seeing my son (16 year old) for 12 days. Last year we did the TMB and admirable. I have several of the GR11 CICERONE. I plan to fly to Barcelona. Where should I start, and how to get from point to point without accompanying vehicle? Also how to get from Barcelona to the starting point?

Hi rose,

As you probably know, the GR11 long pathway takes about 50 days to complete from top to bottom. If 12 days, I recommend to go Park igooastorts Park Ordesa. If I remember correctly from our trip 12 days is exactly the time it takes to get from Espot (village of the Park ad) to Torla (Ordesa entrance village), on the main route of the GR11. People, this is the most beautiful part of the Pyrenees. I was just there, and I can tell you it was amazing.

About getting-public bus from the main bus station of Barcelona (Estacio del Nord) town called Vielha Alsa company. It costs something like 30 euros. From there, in the summer, private service of minibuses called Bus to take you to the Parc del espot for 5 euros. Keep in mind that every arrival from Barcelona take at least half a day.

Thanks BIKI87. Would like to know more:

1. the book of talking about Greece GR11 Trek from West to East, while all visitors, including you, talking about Greece from East to West. There is a difference? There is a recommended (in terms of UPS/offences) such as on TMB? There is a difference in degree of difficulty?

2. I have read that there are also very well preserved near the French village of ג'יווארני (hope btathi). Is it part of the GR11 trail? Did it or a serious anomaly should give it up

3. public transportation tickets can be ordered out of the country or to buy in Barcelona's bus how come The bus frequency or there once or twice a day?

4. you slept in huts or camping

5. If a postponement of the cabin-is an estimate of 35 euros per night, as in France, relevant to Spain? Do book in advance? How is this really necessary? In France, I ordered every morning with her cabin-cabin accommodation? It is also common in Spain?

Thanks in advance for all the explanations. Rose and coat

There is a site in English on favourite company made a trek of 7 Park Ordesa

Http://www.timburnett.co.uk/pyrenees/route.asp

I wasn't spectacular, but I heard there (look at the Gallery on this site).

Because you have a few more days I joined in recommending the heat agoastorts made a short Trek there for three and a half days. Pick a espot as recommended and after 3 days can "cut" Refugio rstanka down Valley walk of two hours and a half.

On govrni (and Giverny he village of Monet and Normandy is in General) can give. Commercial town. A half-hour walk has a waterfall that is as high as in France, in Europe, in the milky way. Not dropped admiration. I think "the reserve" you mean.

Another point-on but some TMB posts I read, I think the conditions there improved accommodations far surpasses the Refugio in Pyrenees. At least agoastorts which was the Refugio Spartan, dormitori accommodation 30-8 beds. Double room or even four can forget There is no Refugio (as for example on AV1)

And Trek agoastorts

Day 1 – espot through Lake maurycy Refugio אמיטג'ס.

Day 2-Refugio אמיטג'ס Refugio kolomers.

Day 3-Refugio rstanka. Refugio kolomers

Half-day leave the Lake and Refugio above it (something like 3 hours round trip) and then descending with supplies from Refugio Valley Arne rstanka (2 hours). Come to the village, I don't remember his name and from there take a taxi or bus to the Viale "capital".

If you want to do all this I think torts Aguas 5 or 6 days. Starting from espot and end up in a town called in Feng Shui. (Or vice versa)

Hey,

Answers:

1. we in the direction described because we started in Barcelona and after the Trek we hike some Basque country so that East and West made sense. Beyond that, I haven't given any thought to the matter and I would recommend you to do what is easier logistically. If I had to think about the npkoyoth, so I say pay attention to Bielsa Valley Ridge Perdido counter that counts the most difficult Trek over a horizontal distance of vertical is very short. I guess if steep rises very bothering you so much, I think I might go in the opposite direction.

2. gaoorani is not straying too far. We weren't there, but I have a friend who was just nice and said there. Probably not different magnitudes of other views in this area (which are awesome).

3. it may be that Internet can be ordered out of the country, not checked. Anyway I don't think there's a reason. Frequency — as told here, once daily in the morning.

4. We slept most nights in the tent that we took with us. Most people don't, and for good reason. If the penny is in hand and/or not in exceptionally good shape, I recommend sleeping in huts.

5. it sounds like something in this range. As mentioned, we were in, but I remember vaguely that accommodation costs about 20 euros per night per person and dinner for about the same price. In General, prices in Spain should be slightly lower than France. About the reservation, from what I've read, it's best to book in advance in high season. Can't say how, i.e. whether one cabin to cabin phone, i.e. days in advance or less.
