Walking is the safest way to access the real. Self, other, countries. The 30 routes proposed and described in this book are all colored by the love of an author for a space designated as a true paradise for hikers. These routes are not specialist matter: this is for everyone here and now, in the evidence of not followed by another not in the discovery of an intimate territory - much more than decoration - in happiness so simple to be there. A veil lifted on the visible, a time which, admittedly, is measured, but also expands the satisfaction of accomplishment at breast height or woman.
Du Vic-Bihl, north, collars and Somport Pourtalet (and beyond, for four routes, Tena Valley) let the charm work, the ocean breeze and the wind from Spain will combine to tell you a generous history of Bearn, a story today revealed in thirty hikes. Thirty walks like so many places to visit, to go to land in a palette of beautifully preserved landscapes.
Let your eyes get lost in the first mountains of fleecy blue Bearn. You will hear that the country of the good King Henry knows how many, generous, emotional.
This guide will lead you to the cool glades of beech to the crests of gaunt mountains. It will take you across the great fields of heather, walk under the saligue sin which gaves the egret and heron, get lost among the honeyed vines vineyards Jurançon, do not you stop to admire the truncated cone of Ossau , move you to the flight of the vulture neck Marie Blanque.
The shortest of these routes (approx. 3 hours) you will discover the peaks of Orthez and the heights of Lanne-en-Barétous when the longest (6:45 ET 8:30) are the result of two loops of the plain of Buzy. The vertical drop is the largest meeting of the loop of the Mast (1600).
