GR1 in Spain – GR7 Spain – GR10 France – GR20 Corsica – Kungsleden Sweden – New Zealand Trails – Chilkoot Trail Alaska / Canada

GR 11 - May - July 2019

Wanting to hike the GR 11 and looking for company?
I will be hiking the GR 11 from about May 26 – July 18th.. 2019

The GR11 is an adventure of a lifetime, and should not be taken lightly.

It starts at sea level and about 860km further it ends at sea level, in between is stunning ancient hamlets & villages and spectacular mountains.

The preferred route starts at the Atlantic side and ends at the Mediterranean side.

The GR11 passes through The Basque region Navarra, Aragon, Catalonia and of course Andorra. The highest point on the actual GR11 is about 2800m, however there are numerous higher peaks that can be reached while on the trail.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I really need a guide?

The simple answer is NO, the GR11 is fairly well marked and Cicerone’s  GR11 Guidebook is really good. However, that does not mean it is an easy hike, and a lot more people [ are forced to ] quit the trail, than actually finish it.

A lot of people prefer to walk alone, but a lot of people much prefer to have company on the trails. Not everyone can take about 2 months off to cross the Pyrenees, so a lot of people haven’t got the opportunity to walk with a friend / partner.

Walking with someone that knows the trails, is a huge benefit, and in a lot of cases peace of mind.

How much do you charge?

I actually don’t make any money from this, all I ask is that it doesn’t cost me anything either..

Please contact me for a quote.

How long will it take to hike the GR11?

That really depends on weather and snow conditions. I average about 51 days, that includes about 5 rest days

Are the trails mentioned here the only trails you guide?

I love hiking, but there are certain trails, or parts of the world I have no interest in. As a guide I will only commit to hikes / regions that I know I will enjoy – please contact me with the details of the hike, and when you are wanting / able to do it. 

The other international trails I guide are :

  • The Camino Frances – Spain [ starts in France ] an about 770km Pilgrimage from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela

  • The GR1 – Spain – about 1200 km historic trail from the Pico’s to the Med
  • The GR7 – Spain – about 1900km from Andalucía to Andorra – there is also a shorter about 735km version possible ending in Puebla de don Fadrique
  • Via de la Plata – Spain – +1000km by far the longest Camino de Santiago route that crosses the whole of Spain from Andalucia in the South to Galicia in the North
  • The GR20 – Corsica – about 180km traversing Corsica diagonally from north to south. Arguably Europe’s finest mountain trek
  • The Kungsleden – Sweden – about 440km trail between Abisko in the north and Hemavan in the south
  • All New Zealand Trails – without doubt the best trails network in the world.
