For planning walks on the GR12. With the different features on this page, parts of the GR12 can be selected and distances determined.
- Click on a name of a point in the table for a detailed map and more information.
- Or select your own start and end point on the map.
- Or select a start point and an end point in the table and press the start and end point button below the table.
- More options see the text below the table.
The route of the GR12 is displayed in red. The shortest direct connections between the GR12 and the start and end points are shown in blue. These direct connections may not be possible!

The route of the GR12 is based on openstreetmap.org data. The route is obtained from waymarkedrails.org.
The most recent version of the route can be seen on Waymarkedtrails and Openstreetmap. The GR12 route was downloaded from Waymarkedtrails on January 3, 2022.
Heights have been added to Waymarkedtrails tracks using the website gpsvisualizer.com.
The exact locations of Cities, Towns, Villages and Hamlets are based on the locations that Openstreetmap gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center.
The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the GR12 to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the GR12 is the shortest distance to the GR12 in a direct line.
The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows
Total distance = Distance point 1 to nearest point on the GR12 + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the GR12 + Distance between the two nearest points on the GR12
If points 1 and 2 are close to the GR12, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from GR12, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.
It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the GR12 and from the GR12 to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the GR12 and from the GR12 to the end point.
The track of the GR12 may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path!
