More About the Author

Paul Jenner (born 1950) is the author and co-author of more than 30 books. After leaving school he trained as a journalist and had his first book published in 1979. But it was while working as a travel writer that a chance meeting with a duti (female Tantrika) in Bangkok led to a change of direction. A number of self-help books followed, including How To Be Happier, Kama Sutra, Get Intimate With Tantric Sex, Have Great Sex and Transform Your Life With NLP. In the 1980s he moved to the French Pyrenees and then to Spain where he lives with his partner, the writer Christine Smith, three ponies, two dogs and two sheep.

Pyrenees: Car Tours and Walks (Landscapes) We used this simple no nonsense guide to take us on a couple of fantastic walks last October. Without the book we would not have known where to begin. Simple, good directions, and timings just right. Best of all, no superfluous detail.

Hard to know how to rate this, I've been an avid user of Sunflower guides for years, my only complaint is that they tend to try and cover a too large a geographic area, and this one is the granddaddy of them all. From the Atlantic to the Mediterranean in 34 walks covering over 400km of mountains means the walks are spread a bit thin over the ground, so I think where this guide shines best is on a car tour along the length of the Pyrenees allowing you to sample the wonderful walks along the way. However if your holiday is going to be more centre specific then it is probably less useful and I would suggest you would be better off with one of the many guides concentrating on your particular area .

That said, the information, route descriptions, maps and insight are, as ever, up to their usual perfect standards.

I have been using the Sunflower guides for many years, and without exception they are, for me, what makes or breaks a walking holiday .Landscapes of the Pyrenees goes right across the mountain chain starting near the Atlantic coast and ending on the shores of the Med. From lowly hills to lofty peaks this guide is a "must". For the central Pyrenees Luz St Sauveur is a good base and all of the walks are achievable by the reasonably fit. The absolute must do here is the Breche de Roland, but preferably when the snow has gone! The walks in Andorra are much harder, but it is a beautiful place away from the town.Each walk has its own detailed maps, grading system and intructions how to get there by car or public transport where possible.also included are wonderful car tours. To be absolutely recommended. How do they get so much into a book that fits in your pocket!

I find this book a very good guide to explore new corners of the Pyrenees. Even I, being Spanish, consider the trails very well described and accurately guided.
You get all the information you need before leaving, know exactly what to expect at your arrival and timing is well measured (at least for my middle-aged kind of walking).
Weather you wish to explore by car or have a stroll during your excursion, this is a very good guide. The different walks are good graded from "easy stroll" to "extrenuous", and when rating, they bear in mind the average tourist, not the expert climber!

Format: Paperback
I wouldn't travel without it. The walks maps are good enough to do a walk without a separate map, and the general map at the back is good for getting a wider pespective of what is where. My only grouse is that we were unable to do either Car Tour 8 (Col de Tourmalet) or Walk 26 (The Grand Canyon walk) as both were still closed by snow in late May. There is a general warning about this in the introduction, but a more specific one in these chapters would have been helpful.
The update service on the internet is excellent.

We rely on these books as one of the best sources of walking and touring information. They are simple, descriptive and easy to correlate with other maps and guides. They are all round pocket powerhouses of information and save us lots of planning time. This was one of our first books and have since bought several more of them. Must see places are Cirque de Gavarnie, the Grand Canyon in Ordessa and the Aigues Tortes - sublime!

This book was a great help to me whilst on my recent trip to the Pyrenees, maps showing routes and places to visit on routes were informative and accurate. I had never travelled to this area previously needing all the help I could get and found this book filled that hole, helping with the planning before leaving home and during the tour allowing me to fit as much as I could into my stay. I would recommend using this guide book from the sunflower series, they would be a great help to anyone not familiar with this area, giving guidance and showing distances to travel and informative maps that were easy to follow and useful for planning. Overall I found this book to be of great assistance and would recommend to anyone travelling to the Pyrenees to see all of them or just a snapshot.

Format: Paperback
This is a good taster for the Pyrenees but most of the walks are too far apart to do many from any one base. (Walks 20 and 26, shown adjacent on the key map are actually 110 miles apart by road.) We came unstuck on walk 31 where the walk deviated from the waymarked route and despite an extra two hours circling around never managed to find the path and had to retrace our steps. The book could do with some warnings for dog owners - several walks in the French National Parks are closed to dogs.
