Travel through the Pyrenees is a feast for the eyes and a treat to the senses. I mean that in every way.
The food, the drink the company and most importantly the scenery will give you sheer pleasure every day.
A Journey Through The Pyrenees in Photos
Days were jam-packed from morning until the night where we rode horses and donkeys, Segways and ebikes.
We drank wine and more wine ate cheese and more cheese and ate so much cured meats that we started to actually start to cure a little bit ourselves!
It was two weeks of absolute indulgence and in the process, we took some pretty amazing photographs.
It’s amazing to witness just how close this mountain range is to the coast. At times, you can see the coast from the mountains and at others, you can see the mountains from the coast.
One minute you feel as if you are deep in the middle of the mountains far away from civilization until you are reminded that you are only a couple of hours away from everywhere.
We were transported from untouched medieval towns to trendy boutique hotels, quiet resorts inaccessible by road to Michelin rated gourmet restaurants.
The Pyrenees has it all. One need not vacation anywhere else when they choose to visit the Costa Brava region of Spain.
You can be on the coast one-minute basking in the sun or hiking an ancient trail along a mountain pass the next.
It is a destination that has something for everyone.

Wow ! amazing place simply beautiful. Great Photography so creative and beautiful very unique.
Love your photos are breathtaking! I’ve just shared this “journey” on our company Facebook page (Spanish Trails, Barcelona). Thanks!
Thanks! So glad you liked it, you live in a beautiful country.
I’ve been living in La Costa Brava, where the Pyrenees touch the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a magical place with many small towns and hidden beaches.
Ooh, Hoihe, you are very lucky. I am always impressed with how diverse the region is.
Stunning! You’ve really captured the trip perfectly. Love all of these!
Thanks Michael, nice compliment coming from you, as you were there. 🙂 Cheers!
Oh my goodness, these are amazing photos D&D!!! 🙂 Shaming myself right now for not having made it before, and putting it on my resolution for 2013 — living in Madrid, I have no excuse. Thank you for the tantalizing bait and the push to make this dream trip come true!! 🙂
Thanks Brandy. We’ll try to make it to Madrid this year. We’ve never been there and we’re feeling the same way about Madrid that you are about the Pyrenees.
Absolutely stunning captures, all of them. My favorite though is the hot air balloon one!!
Thanks Arti. We missed out on flying that day, but at least we had the opportunity to capture this beautiful shot! 🙂
Oh… my … gosh. Amazingly beautiful.
Great photo story guys
Amazing high quality pictures! The Pyrenees are breathtaking!
I really love the stained glass shot. Beautiful!
Love the all the photos especially the one of the stream.
Your photos just get better and better. We were planning a trip to the Pyrenees in 2011 but ended up in the Outer Hebrides.
Thank you John. That sounds like a great trip too. We haven’t been to the outer Hebrides. Would you recommend them?
Ohh my ..my …my I am so amazed by the scenery of Pyrenees, It makes me feel like I am watching a wonder place , If heaven would be somewhere on earth, The Pyrenees is the Heaven.
Thank you Suzzane, The Pyrenees are quite beautiful. At times it did feel that way, especially when viewing the mountains.
Beautiful photos, guys. I’ve always wanted to go the Pyrenees. Wanted to go there for our honeymoon, but we opted for Croatia instead. Can’t complain. Thanks for the visual inspiration — maybe I’ll make it there one day after all!
Ooh, Croatia is a great choice as well. We loved it there and definitely want to see more. Maybe you will make it to the Pyrenees next and we’ll go back to Croatia. We’ll do a vacation swap:)
Wonderful shots! I’ve been hiking in the French Pyrenees but there is clearly much to explore on the ‘other side’!!
Yes, there is so much more to them than we expected as well. We are looking forward to a good hike through them one day.
Fantastic pictures, the first photo is breathtaking!
Thanks Angela. we had a great subject to photograph, the entire region of the Pyrenees.
Wow beautiful images – I love the medieval village feel of some of the photos – seems like a nice place to relax and get away from the city for a while
We stayed in a lovely villa just near the Port de la Selva, and one of the highlights was visiting that amazing monastery on the hill 🙂 Spectacular photos as always!
Italy never ceases to amaze me! You’ve really captured some beautiful moments here. Thanks!
Stunning! Spent a day or two driving through them with my Dad awhile back. So peaceful there.
Congratulations D&D, some of the best photography I have seen in a long time. Beautiful!
Fantastic shots! Vall de Nuria and the Dali house are my favs. You did a great job with visual story telling
Wow, those photos are a feast for the eyes, for sure! Thanks for sharing!

Wow.I love the pictures you shared.Awesome and looks like a paradise.Makes me wish to visit that place too.Thanks for sharing.
Fabulous photos guys! It looks like a great place for trekking. Every time I go on your site, I end up putting a new destination on my list of places to see…but that’s not a bad thing!
Cheers for the post.
Wow! Amazing. And when I see that hot air balloon, it just makes me wanna fly more again….

Amazing visual journey of Pyrenees. Love the photos, especially the Sant Pere de Roda Romanesque monastery photo.
Definitely these photos give a sense of quietness!
Stunning photos, especially the first one. The hot air balloon ride looks like a trip that everyone should have on their bucket list. There is nothing more beautiful than looking back from a coastal beach at the rising peaks of a mountain range.
Looks beautiful – thanks for sharing the photos.
