TREKKING PASS ARAN: Cross-border crossing of the Pyrenees
We present the Trekking Pass' Aran. A cross-border circular tour that covers more than 70km in 5 days. We will climb peaks of almost 3.000m and cross beautiful beech forests a little more than 900m high. Each day we will have the opportunity to stay in isolated shelters both in Spain and in France.
On both sides of the border we find majestic lakes, peaks with permanent snowfields and high mountain fauna. Undoubtedly, the perfect route to explore and get lost in this quiet corner of the Pyrenees.
We will begin our journey in the Valley of Aran, in the province of Lleida, but a large part of the route takes place in France.
Meeting in Vielha. Accommodation in the Valley.
