He listens to protagonists on both sides of the argument over the reintroduction of bears. And goes searching for ibex imported as part of a rewilding programme. My new book on the Pyrenees is about to be published.

But behind all the beauty lies another story, intimately linked to the history of the 20th century and its refugees. Just like those who cross the Mediterranean today, many failed to arrive at their destination. Today, climbing up to the passes is a pleasure but the interpretive panels tell a different story. In general there are few restrictions on dog walking in the Pyrenees, except in National Parks, Natural Parks and Reserves see below for details.

In some of these areas dogs must be kept on a lead; in others they are prohibited. Even when there are no specific rules, dog owners need to be aware that stray dogs are the second most important cause of death for sheep in the Pyrenees after sickness. A shepherd has the right to kill any dog which menaces his flock. The only dogs which are allowed to roam freely are the patous , specially trained sheep guard dogs. If your dog approaches a flock guarded by a patou it will attack.

A red-and-white waymark like this indicates that you are heading in the right direction. The first explanation I heard was that the waymarks are based on symbols used on the Way of Saint James. The pilgrims used chalk for the white upper stripe and blood for the red lower one.

In their minds this symbolised the clouds above — the heaven at the end of the pilgrimage — and the bloody feet — the suffering — involved in getting there. GR flowering pastures above Estos; in the background the Maladeta massifmassif de la Maladeta. First on the north side, then on the south.

The walker has a choice of three paths from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean along the length of the Pyrenees. It is a mid-slope route with the highest pass at m above sea level. If you chose to take in the Aneto, the highest peak in the Pyrenees, you will be climb to m. The Prames maps are good for planning and only contain very occasional errors. If you confuse the two you will be up to m out! Again, although the maps are mostly very accurate, I found some incredible errors. If you stray off the route they will be very little help — the scale , is too small and the detail insufficient in rugged mountain terrain.
