Between 2018 and 2020, we crossed Europe on foot. We accomplished a unique journey through the wildest and highest lands of the continent. An adventure beyond borders to better understand our world.

Portugal, Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Northern Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Turkey.

The crossing of each of these countries was full of surprises. Territories, encounters, cultures... everything contributed to make this experience exceptional.

2PVA - THE MAP 

We imagined a route crossing Europe from west to east, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea, passing as much as possible by the smallest paths.
Sometimes relying on long-distance trails, but mostly following our instincts, we drew this route as a guide for our crossing of Europe.
 
All GPX tracks are freely available and have already been used by many other European hikers. 
Download them, follow them, modify them according to your desires and do not hesitate to quote us if they are useful to you!

2PVA - THE INTERVIEW by OUTSIDE

Interviewed by Outside Magazine halfway through our crossing of Europe. We answer all their questions about the project Deux Pas Vers l'Autre.
Motivations, equipment, favorite spots, everything goes through it!
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE PROJECT
  • "Deux Pas Vers l'Autre is an adventure with figures that speak for themselves: a lot of courage, a lot of audacity, and a little bit of madness. But the numbers don't tell the whole story. Because Deux Pas Vers l'Autre is more than a journey, it is a project.

    THERM-IC
  • "Beyond the sporting challenge, their approach is also an act of sharing that led them to transport video equipment to the summits.

    Compressport
  • "This is no ordinary thruhike!"

    BLOG REFERENCE - THE TREK
  • "A unique human adventure

    French Hiking Federation
  • "I like this initiative which aims to meet Europeans and to highlight the richness and diversity of our continent".

    Antonio Tajani, President of the European Parliament
  • "Solidarity is the common language they have encountered".
