Guildford Travel Club Presents

Walks and Climbs in the Pyrenees

27th March 2018

Kev Reynolds

The Speaker

Creating a natural frontier between France and Spain, the Pyrenees display a wealth of scenic delights, with Alpine-style peaks, small glaciers, lush valleys, deep canyons and an amazingly diverse flora. In “Walks & Climbs in the Pyrenees” the very best of these mountains and valleys will be revealed in a visual record resulting from dozens of visits over the past fifty years.

Travel writer and regular speaker to the Club, Kev Reynolds has climbed all the highest summits, crossed hundreds of passes and trekked thousands of miles across the range. He has also written four books about them and in this lecture he will regale us with tales of his adventures and misadventures among what has been called Europe’s Last Great Wilderness.
