GR11 – Crossing the Spanish Pyrenees 2016

May 26th – July 16th 2016 – Hendaye to Cap de Creuz – 51 days


On May 9th 2019, I will be starting the GR11 again, this time solo. I understand May 9th is very early to attempt the GR11, but I will spend 2 weeks in Torla [ The Odesa ] with a very special person… Stay tuned..

On May 26th 2016 we [ Zoe & Paul ] started the GR11 crossing the Spanish Pyrenees fro Atlantic to the Med. The distance was about 860km, we started at the train station in Hendaye and we successfully arrived in Cap de Creus 51 wonderful days later.
We had 5 rest days and  had to find our way around, thus skip 2 sections due to too much snow.

GR11 My Gear

There is no better way to test your gear than hiking 860km through the Pyrenees. For 51 days [ and nights ] the gear was used and abused every single day. Rain, Sun and Snow – what gear passed with flying colors and what gear would I definitely not waste my money on..

Cumulus Lite Line 300 Sleeping Bag

This is definitely a 3 season bag, and in all honesty, I could have gotten away with a 2 season bag, however there were days I did need the warmth, and the Cumulus definitely did the job. It's very light, and packs away to the size of a 1 liter drinking bottle.
