Hikers can expect a significant difference in altitude, but their efforts will be rewarded by incredible landscapes.
PYRENEES NATIONAL PARK
It is difficult to contain all the natural wonders of this high place of the Pyrenees in a small sentence. The Garvarnie cirque, the Vignemale and its glacier, the Lac de Gaube or the Brèche Roland are among the must-see places on the HexaTrek.
The Pic du Midi d'Ossau, Lescun, the Pic d'Anie... you will come across as many natural wonders in this section as there are days in your walking schedule. A detour on the Spanish side will take you to Aguas Tuertas and its winding waters. The red colours of the Castillo de Acher at sunset are equally unforgettable.
Among the most emblematic villages of this region of France, there are Ainhoa, Sare, Espelette or St-Jean-Pied-de-Port. But the Basque country is also an environment of medium mountains where the green hills of the surroundings will welcome the Hexatrekkeur of long date until the finish line, at the edge of the Atlantic, in the town of Hendaye.
