A great week

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Heading back towards the minibus after 2 days of hard walking up peaks and along ridges and an overnight stay at a Refuge just as the sun was setting. The golden light shining across the mountains was pretty special for me.

What did you think of your group leader?

Sara Bull is an amazing group leader and an unforgettable character. Vastly experienced, knows the region very well, and is always funny and entertaining with many tales from her many adventures. She has a genuine warmth and works tirelessly to ensure all members of the group regardless of ability have an enjoyable and safe holiday. Her passion for life and nature is very inspiring.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Be prepared for the long walks, especially on a challenging week - good footwear is essential. The refuge / hut are quite basic esp. bathroom facilities. Remember, there are no toilets or showers up the mountains.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The accommodation and food at Braccicorti was great, really homely and a lovely place to chill and relax after a long day. The meals out at local restaurants were also fantastic. I went solo and the group I shared the trip with were a lovely bunch, many laughs and great characters. I spent the free day in Lucca, a lovely unique little city. Overall a fantastic week and highly recommended.
