Hello everyone,

This summer I plan to go the entire Pyrenees mountain range from West to East.

From browsing the Forum seem to have 3 trails you can walk on them.

I have experience and I have no problem with the weight on your back, but I'm not climbing and walking in the snow.

What is the difference in terms of scenery/logistics/difficulty/length/price between the different paths?

And which one is best?

Thank you

Yotam

Hey being, I start from the end.
Everyone recommended, the answer to this question will always be POV and only relevant to the season. (Also, you want to hear an answer to a question from someone who went to all three, and I know about someone like that in the Forum).

Regarding the comparison:
Along the large differences in length between the three

No one hiking trails – requires no knowledge of climbing, the hrp undoubtedly considered difficult of the three (topographic and logistics) has several sections that may be covered in snow until late in the season, is relatively similar and 11 in terms of difficulty.

Landscapes and climate-10 passes on the north side of the ridge and therefore in General (very general because the climate changes also and not just along the Ridge width) where green landscapes (lots of forests) and steep (affected Party than shaping by glaciers).
11 which runs on the South side of the ridge is big and less steep, dry (again).
Both generally designed cottages go and villages and thus cost less in high ridge
The principle of the hrp is tracing watershed, from this you can see that they view higher in General (he's had with both parts of course) and less predictable climate.
It is important to remember that each of the trails from Miss divide-11 views for example runs in two other Park Ordesa not him but misses the Gavarnie which is across the border.

Logistics-10 enjoying French planning and logistics where simpler (village every two or three days and is almost if not every night), also runs in 11 villages in the high urgency but passes through less.
The hrp however more problematic logistic with 5-7 days once villages (the edges slightly less) and very few cabins, which requires carrying much food and equipment.

In short, I have no doubt that all the track you choose!

Being peace,
I walked the GR10 in 2011. And incorporated into numerous sections what HRP.
Join the opinion of me. The French side villages even more frequent than me said. Alpine zone sections have disconnected from the world, but mostly through the village every day (in the lower sections in some villages in 1 day). If not then in alpine village.
Logistics shouldn't worry you, what is a very difficult path. Mainly because he passes villages-villages should descend from the Ridge into the Valley and then go back and sometimes up and down above 1500 m 1.
P.s.
The GR 10 "steal" from you more money because France more expensive than Spain. But it is steep in your ability to handle what we have; If you know how to buy groceries and Cook yourself or enjoy sleeping in a tent than in a lodge or cabin you can make every Bill. The Pyrenees allow very flexibility and costs.

When you say you're not climbing what exactly do you mean? The term climbing is very wide. It is possible that during the trails either the 10 or 11 and especially in HRP should know not to go on the trail, it is easy and especially technical climb. Fold the walking sticks and use my hands to move boulders or field on PAS or Summit like that. The person who used to walk on the trails across the alpine trails also increase to kolis may seem problematic.
For the season, also can be generated that condition remain not aggregated of snow in the mountains. You can avoid using interest beforehand with other travellers or cabins along the way. Map of the area will help you to choose an alternate path and exclude shorter walk in the snow.

In conclusion-me said it best. No matter what you choose you will enjoy a very this amazing area. I still think a lot about the Pyrenees and I have no doubt that one day will return to either go the GR 11 or HRP.


You are welcome to visit the thread opening on the GR 10.

Hello

My wife and I walked the GR11 in summer 2013.

From what I understand from research I've done before, and people who I met on the road:

(I use underlying GR11):

The GR10-1) much more expensive. More cabins, more organized and labeled. Steeper, more green and rainy. Frenchman.
HRP-2), not marked and therefore need more navigation. Less cabins, villages, and therefore need to carry much more. Less steep because it remains relatively high.

I supposed I went on relatively steep GR11-who was in the middle section, 1000 m ascent and descent per day is standard. You can go without making a tent larger distances (met), but it's standard with a tent.
In most cases there is a cabin village, every 2 days at least. Yes there are places with no one except the other travellers. There aren't many cabins. This year should go in the snow to cross the tracks, but it wasn't hard and short pieces.

Join any of the foregoing.
August 2011 planned to go weeks on the hrp but physical difficulty and went undefeated on the GR11.
(Not disappointed it was from and lottery!).
Recommend to exploit the fact that cold and much rain falls, and save weight as possible (which is all the not only to the hrp also no GR water park hayarkon)
Logistics can be a simple planning by buying maps (topographic, and you can buy online)-grocery store in almost every village/ski resort, and works in the village/resort gr11 every two or three days,
But I didn't see anywhere in gas canisters. (I used bnziniia).
The Spanish side's advantage is that the field is (in most places), and therefore can sleep on the ground.
The French side is more complicated in this respect.
And everywhere there's marmots and cute as hell.

Thanks to all respondents,

Than it seems right now, the best choice is GR11.

I started reading a bit,

Good day

A good choice. (And others too)
Congratulations, you enjoy bad.

Just don't take too much weight.

Add to above: the Spanish side advantage is convenience and also return to Earth (Barcelona) and the beginning and end of the Trek (Catalonia's very open in this piece), at the end of the Trek can relax in Costa Brava.

If you speak one of the sofas in these countries is a very serious consideration because in rural areas unless at all if you don't speak English speakers consider to learn basic words or even take some Pocket Dictionary.
