Re: 2018 Picos & Pyrenees - 10 days - All route days attached

Simon thanks so much for all this information will now spend some time adding your suggestions, seems very cheeky but if you have any road numbers I would find that useful; on the point of why staying in Sort it was really to do the Smugglers trail and have a trip into Andorra, but is by no means se...
