Next week I'll be heading to spain for a hiking trip. were planing to hike a 5 days trek on the gr 11 trail . I don't have much experience with hiking this time of the year, so perhaps some people here can help me answer some of the following questions:
- Are the winter rooms in the huts open? how do i contact the operators?
- If so, what is provided in the winter rooms (matress, blankets?) and what is the procedure? Do I need to get a key, where and how do I need to pay? is there a fireplace or a posibilty of lighting fire inside the huts?
- Does anybody know about the current conditions? Is there already a lot of snow (compared to other years)? What is a good place on the web to find out about local conditions?
Any further general tips from experienced people are always welcome. Many thanks in advance!
I'm looking for ideas for short trips (using public transport) around the pyrenees. I'm flying to/from Barcelona at Easter and would like to travel from there to a smaller town where i can stay for a few days and do some day long walking trips any suggestions?
