National Geographic's Pyrenees and Andorra Adventure Map provides global travelers with the perfect combination of detail and perspective in a highly functional travel tool. This map includes the locations of cities and towns with a user-friendly index, plus a clearly marked road network complete with distances and designations for roads and highways. Beaches and yachting harbors dot Spain and France's Mediterranean coastlines while the location of golf courses, camping sites, waterfalls, caves, and ski areas make it easy to enjoy the region's abundant outdoor activities. National parks, World Heritage sites, scenic viewpoints, antiquity sites, museums, and more are included, making it invaluable to travelers hoping to experience all the history, art, and culture the region has to offer.
The front side of the print map shows the country of Andorra and the eastern half of the Pyrenees including the cities of Narbonne, Carcassone, Pamiers, St-Gaudens, St-Girons, Perpignan in France, and Balaguer, Manresa, and Figueres in Spain. The reverse side of the map stretches from the city of Biarritz on the Bay of Biscay eastward to include Pamplona and Huesca, Spain, and Pau, Tarbes, and the famed pilgrimage site of Lourdes, France.
Popular for alpine skiing and mountaineering, the Pyrenees are a scenic mountain range which form a natural boundary between Spain and France. Stages of two of cycling's epic grand tours - the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana - traverse the Pyrenees and three long-distance footpaths run the length of the mountain range. Nestled in the center of the Pyrenees is the ruggedly beautiful Andorra, the sixth smallest country in Europe which is roughly two and a half times the size of Washington, D.C. Its picturesque mountain vistas and easy charm have made Andorra a favorite destination for savvy travelers.
Every Adventure Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough -- capable of withstanding the rigors of international travel.
