Pyrenees Border Trail

Pyrenees Border Trail
Pays Basque France

The Pyrenees Border Trail is an exhilarating route, with thrilling scenery over wild valleys framed by rugged peaks, as eagles and vultures soar overhead. Discover the culture of the Pays Basque people and the reasons why they wish to live apart from France.

From St Jean-Pied-de-Port, former capital of Basse Navarre and Unesco World Heritage Site, to  the village of Sare, listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France, we will follow both the path of St Jacques de Compostelle and various mountain passes in the tracks of the infamous smugglers throughout the Quint region, discovering  the lovely Gulf of Gascogne in the background.

Saint Etienne de Baigorry...St Jean Pied-de-Port…Urepel…Les Aduldes…Bidarray… an indescribable feeling! Here, the countryside is green as Ireland and more harmonious than Tuscany.  Explore primeval virgin forest, spruce villages and hamlets, fresh and hidden valleys filled with thousands of sheep and wild ponies, putting the finishing touches to the countryside, leaving us to believe we could live to be one hundred years old in such spendor! Unquestionably one of the most magical places in the world and an unforgettable trek on horseback!
