A Journey Through The Pyrenees in Pictures

Written By: The Planet D

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.

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.

  5. Oh my goodness, these are amazing photos D&D!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 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.

  7. 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:)

  8. Wonderful shots! I’ve been hiking in the French Pyrenees but there is clearly much to explore on the ‘other side’!!

  9. 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

  10. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Spectacular photos as always!

  11. What gorgeous shots! I’ve been to Europe many times but never The Pyrenees before. My favorite shot is the last one with the blurred background. Amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Some of the most beautiful images I have seen of the Pyrenees. You guys are good. really good. Next time come see us in Perpignan France. Send us an email.
