Not all great expeditions need to take place in far flung places like Antarctica or on the face of K2. You’ll find plent of great trekking in other parts of the world. Take the Pyrenees for instance. You’ll find spectacular views, amazing mountains, rugged trails, and a nice warm lodge with plenty of great food and wine wating for you at the end of the day. Don’t want to take my word for it? Then check out this article over at Andy Howell’s Trek Blog.
There is something to be said for a hut to hut trekking tour through the Alps or the Pyrenees. You get to experience all the fun of a big adventure in the mountains, while not missing out on the creature comforts nor the culture of the region. What a great way to spend time in Europe, although your friends may be asking you why you didn’t go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
