Event Details

This stunning but demanding trek in the Pyrenees starts in France, following the route of the ‘Chemin de la Liberte’. You will trek in the same footsteps of the many servicemen and Jewish refugees and see memorials to some of the people who risked their lives to help them.

The trek is challenging and steep, the hardest day sees you ascend 1500m. The route provides some spectacular mountain scenery, through beech forests and past mountain lakes and along rocky ridges.

You explore remote trails ascending to 2522m before descending into Spain. By carrying your own kit for part of the trek we are able to get away from the beaten tracks of the Pyrenees and follow an exact wartime escape route. This truly inspirational trek offers an insight into the hardships and bravery of all those who escaped, those who helped and those who sadly did not make it to safety.
