I would like to receive recommendations for a circular orbit (or almost-circular) for 5 to 7 days (even a little more), cabins, when the starting point is flights to Toulouse and car rental for the period. The vehicle is the cause that should be circular, or at least one that allows to reach very easily by public transport from finish to start.

Read some forum post and around the Web and came to the conclusion that the two relevant areas are: Aig?estortes National Park and on the Spanish side of the region around Gavarnie. Other places by car from Toulouse is less than three hours it was completely reasonable.

So first of all, if there's more reserved, parks which are good candidates for the trip as described-I'd love to hear.

Secondly, I would like help in deciding which area to go, from what I read here on the Forum is prone to Gavarnie area, but maybe I'm wrong.

Finally, in this apparently trivial Aig?estortes make a circular route of about a week, but does anyone have any recommendations for a similar route on Gavarine? Study maps of the HRP GR10 and I couldn't find a good way especially to connect them into a circular path without having to spend all week in the same corner of the mountains, it seems to me a bit.

Thank you.

An interesting question.

I throw here the idea on the table. That's what I did while I went the GR10.  Seen something interesting on the map and went for it.

Build you a sketch of the track:

Http://routebuilder.org/1op4

It is a combination of interesting and GR10 and challenging of HRP.

You can hang out in Cauterets and sleep well. There is also a library, don't ask me why I know this.
Away we go down South and high mountains, hills and forest at first then through some beautiful lakes between mountains. There are 2 chalets and you can sleep in a tent near one of the Lakes. (No zoom on the map to see the cover)

However the walk can be divided up to VIGNEMALE for two days because it is really a long day, if you insist so you can get there on day 1. (I got the 8 mountain area)
The mountain onto pass impressive mountain with glacier and walk on the ridge to gabrani area. Taking 1 too long, finished the day at about 10 pm. It of course also can be divided into 2 and sleep in a tent on the way.

The Gavarnie start walking North on a wooded Ridge with farms until arriving to Luz saint sauveur. A kind of desolate ski village on the way-summer story ate pizza and half there alone since the walk from Gavarnie until there was long and had so much food. The night I went with a group of international volunteers, especially with a guy from Uganda who runs against cutting off the clitoris. We sat and had our discussions the subject until 4 in the morning.

If going calmly and rate it a 6-5 days if going faster then 3.

Run here in the Forum I choose here to go from gabrani to LESCUN HRP-based and he really went for it. I'm not sure what the insistence of Toulouse-direct flights from Israel also doesn't have much logic in the transport vehicle leasing there fine and keep the car going for a week every day cost of at least EUR 50 is just a shame.

Rather a lot more to fly to Barcelona and the French Pyrenees and the way would be cheaper. To lscon from Barcelona to canfranc greeting and lscon. Search on ROME2RIO routes.

Gaggag, anchor of Toulouse has nothing to do with the trip-we will be there for other reasons, and you want to add. About the car, checked rentals all the time (nine days) will cost 150 euro. From what I checked on Rome2Rio public transport isn't a hit, at least in the French side, and raise the price considerably so worth hiring.

I'd love to thoughts about some trails in the area as recommended. Gaggag, I think I saw the thread, but the route you suggested, and very long. Arthur, thank you for the idea. We are looking for a course based on the cabins, but I saw you could do what you wrote (an excellent site: http://www.pyrenees-refuges.com/ ). Thank you.

If you only want this cabins also available. It simply means that car to get up early and go days. Take into account.
I went for the option of doing the rounds in three days because it was the only variation I didn't want to get into a situation that I can't finish the trail because of my eyes.
