    You have a nice web page!
    I am inquiring if the high resolution vector map version is still available.

    It would most helpful to acquire a copy of the vector map for my personal use.

    Thanks!

    Howard

    Hello Howard
    I’ve sent you one by email.
    best wishes

    Hi steve,

    I am hoping to meet my cousin in benasque. I am flying to toulouse and was planning to go on public transport to luchon. How far is the walk across to the gr11 from luchon?

  4. steve says:

    Hi Jemma,
    The best way of crossing the Pyrenees from Luchon is to take a taxi or hitch from Luchon to the Hospice de France refuge and then climb up to the Portillon de Benasque and down the other side to La Besurta or the Hospital de Benasque. From there you will be able to get a bus to Benasque. It could be done in one day but it would be much more fun to stay at the Refuge de Venasque.
    I hope this helps.
    Steve

    Hi steve, we will be walking the gr10 from merens les vals to banyuls hut to hut. What’s the best hard copy map to take do you think? I cannot imagine the need for greater detail than 1:50k having trekked in alps Balkans etc. Any thoughts. Cheers simon

    Hi Steve,
    Me and my partner are planning a trip to the Maladeta in the Spanish Pyrenees in the beginning of September. We were thinking of starting the trip with a two day walk: from Hospital de Benasque to Refugio de Portillon, spending the night there, and continuing to Refugio Estos back in the Spanish side (and from there to Biados…).
    Do you think these walks are reasonable or are they extremely strenuous? How long would you estimate the walk to refugio de Portillon for two moderate and experienced walkers? Do the walks require extra gear such as cramp-ons?

    Thank you very much, Neri

    Hello Neri

    I’m not sure what you mean by a trip to the Maladeta because at the start you are heading away from it, but hey.

    I haven’t actually done the section from the Hospital de Benasque to the Refuge de Portillon via the col de Litérole but it is one of the four hardest on the Pyrenean Haute Route (steep, 1300m of climbing).

    On the other hand I have walked from Estos to Portillon (and last year from Soula to Portillon which takes in part of the same route). Coming from Portillon there is a lot of confusing boulder-hopping at first and probably some ice to cross after the col du Pluviomètre though at that time of year you will be able to do more boulder hopping to avoid it. After the col des Gourgs Blancs there is a steep descent and (at least the way we went) some easy hands-on stuff.

    Estós to Biadós will be a piece of cake. But Portillon to Estós then Biadós will make a long day (9 hours +)

    I would think Hospital de Benasque to Portillon would be 6.5 hours walking plus rests, assuming that your experience is in the mountains.

    Crampons are probably not necessary but if you take them and ice axes they will enable you to descend from the Pluviomètre on the ice much faster than you would on the rocks (assuming you know how to do a self-arrest on ice).

    I hope this helps. Please let us know what it was like.

  9. Neri says:

    Thank you very much for your elaborate reply!
    What I actually meant by writing “Maladeta” is the Maladeta park 🙂

    The walk from Hospital de Benasque to Portillon sounds a bit to much for us on the first day of the trek… would you recommend walking from Hospital de Benasque to Estos via Refugio du Maupas in two days?

    Thanks (a lot) again, Neri

  10. steve says:

    Hello Neri

    Hospital de Banasque to Maupas is more difficult than going directly to Portillon and after that it would take you another day just to get to Portillon. Your best option is to follow the GR11 which will get you to Biadós in a single day. On the other hand you can go up the Eriste valley to the Angel Orús hostel and then over to Biadós on the Posets Three Refuges circuit.

  11. Carl says:

    A few of us are considering walking the GR11 taking approx 6 weeks in 2018 (after we finish with Tanzania this year) are there any specific guide books / maps on the GR11 that you would recommend?

  12. Sarah says:

    Hi there!

    I am currently living in Madrid and I plan to do a two day hike through the Spanish Pyrenees. Any suggestions on a hike I should do and if I can stay in refugees in October?

    ThNks!

  13. steve says:

    Hi Sarah

    many refuges are closed from 1 October but I will try to help. Could you please let me have more info. Are you driving to the Pyrenees or coming on train/bus? Have you walked in the mountains before and if so how much? Thanks.

    Steve

  14. toby says:

    Steve –
    I am a pretty experienced hiker – I need to get away for a few days (5, lets say) to clear my head –
    I wonder if you have any recommendations as far as a route with refuges being open still (I am looking at last week of October).

    Thank you so much – your site is awesome!
    Toby

  15. steve says:

    Hi Toby
    Unfortunately very few staffed refuges in the mountains are open at this time of year. Some will have open access to certain areas but no staff and no facilities so you would have to carry your food and cooking gear. Try in the Basque Country, perhaps.
    Good luck
    Steve

  16. toby says:

    Steve –
    Thank you so much – I have decided to head to the Appenines (Italy) where temperatures are still reasonable. Not so high but looks beautiful – Next year to the Pyrenees!
