So, This Is The Game ........
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I've never had an issue with heights ... but it turns out maybe I do ... and I'm not as brave as I thought I was .... but I just got on with it and made it down safely from scrambling on Bernia Ridge .... with a smile on my face ... looking forward to a lovely meal with plentiful wine and great conversation with my fellow travellers!
What did you think of your group leader?
Jose was with us all week as the main Exodus leader, however he was ably assisted by Jaime on all activities apart from the hiking day. Both Jose and Jaime are very experienced tour leaders and you can put your full trust in their expertise and knowledge; they are patient and kind. I really enjoyed spending time with them and listening to their stories; they are great fun and work hard to ensure the whole group get the most out of all the activities. I would definitely book future trips based on knowing if either of these guys were leading them!
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
This trip is a great introduction to a range of adventure activities ... I've mostly done camping and hiking trips in the past and thought I'd try something different; I was not disappointed! However, if you are really experienced in any of the activities maybe you need to look at at a more advanced style of trip because you could be with complete beginners who need a little more time to learn new skills. Ultimately this is a holiday, and although challenging, there does still need to be time to relax, eat good food and enjoy a cold beer or two!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
My favourite activities were canyoning and sea kayaking .... the scrambling on day 2 was challenging for me, but not everyone. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and the food was tasty, plentiful and varied. Our hosts were friendly and attentive. The group dynamic makes or breaks a holiday, and I was lucky enough to travel with an awesome group who enjoyed afternoon beers, copious red wine, lots of laughs and on occasion, some nonsense chat! I would thoroughly recommend this trip!
