Feel the crunch of gravel under your feet. Follow ancient shepherd paths and medieval pilgrim trails. Hear the occasional cries of a bearded vulture as craggy peaks loom and teal ibones (mountain lakes) twinkle in the valleys below. Pause to inhale crisp air scented by silver fir and pine. It won’t take long to see why the rugged Pyrenees are best traveled on foot.
