HOLIDAY IDEAS:PYRENEES GR11 -Benasque
HOLIDAY IDEAS: PYRENEES GR11 -Benasque Area
Benasque area is the ideal places for many sports. The village itself is surrounded by high peaks including Aneto peak 3404m, therefore not ending possibilities for walks, hiking and cycling. I was here twice and still want to go back as there are so many beautiful places here. And therefore I want to share with you the idea for hikking holiday in that area.
So I would reccomend GR11 hikking in that part of mountains so kind of circular around Benasque – kind of hut to hut trial. Trial is well sign (painting on stones or small pile of stones) Maps can be purchased in nearly each shop. There are lots of gpx tracks in internet. My tracks are not complited as phone was loosing connection constantly, therefore I don't post any tracks. I bought garmin recently so I will have tracs next year!! :)

day 1. Eriste (1.300 m) - Ángel Orus mountain hut (2.148 m) Distance: 3,5 km. (2-3h)
day 2. Angel Orus mountain hut (2.148 m) - Ibones de Batisielles - Estos Hut (1.890 m). Distance: 14 km. (6-7h)
day 3. Estós Hut (1.890 m) - Puerto de Chistau or Estós (2.700 m) - Biadós Hut (1.740 m). Distance: 12 km. (5-6h)
day 4. Biadós hut (1.740 m) - Forqueta de Eriste Hill - Ángel Orus hut (2.148 m). Distance: 15 km (7-8 h)
day 5. Back to Eriste (2-3h) or Benasque 12 km (5-6 h)
