Something a lot of people notice after spending time in the Spanish Pyrenees is that when they return to ‘civilisation’, it all seems so much… louder. Wonderfully tranquil even in peak season, these mountains stretch 450km from the Mediterranean to the Bay of Biscay on the Atlantic, through Catalonia and the Basque Country, and forming a natural border between Spain and France, with tiny Andorra tucked in between.
The Spanish Pyrenees is the type of place where, once you’ve discovered it, you find yourself going back, over and over again.
The Spanish Pyrenees lend themselves to a wide range of active breaks. You can walk here of course, in fact it’s probably one of the best places in Europe for walking, but you can also combine that with photography, wildlife watching, yoga, snowshoeing in the winter, or a whole swathe of other adventurous pursuits on a multi activity holiday. As Spain’s cities and coastal resorts swell with tourists, it’s little wonder that many people are now starting to look up instead. Find out more in our Spanish Pyrenees holidays guide.
