The Pyrenees is a mountain range that originated during the great Alpine-Himalayan fold 30 million years ago. Located between Spain and France, it acts as a natural border along 430 km from East (Mediterranean Sea) to West (Cantabrian Sea).
The Aneto with 3.404m is the highest peak in the mountain range. More than 200 peaks exceed 3000m in altitude and some important glacial strongholds are still preserved, such as Ossoue (Vignemale), Monte Perdido and Maladetas.
Due to the complex phenomenon of its geological formation, in the Pyrenees we can find multitude of minerals, highlighting the granite batholith of Maladeta and the immense limestone massif in Monte Perdido (World Heritage Site by UNESCO). The volcanic contribution in some cases, is remarkable, as in the Midi d'Ossau, Larrún or the Garrotxa.
The mountain range is cover by snow half of the year. During the winter, the snow level is around 1500m in some valleys. The climate is really diverse between the northern part of the range (wetter and colder) and the southern part (drier and warmer).
In the Pyrenees there are three National Parks: "Aigüestortes and Lake of San Mauricio", "Ordesa and Monte Perdido" and the "Parc National des Pyréneés", this last one in France, North. Many other protected areas and natural parks show the important natural value of the mountain range where TUC Mountain Guides has its Base Camp.
