Sierra de Aitana Trek

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The sunrise over Puig Campana seen from our accommodation in Sella. The view from Puig Campana to Mallorca on our last day

What did you think of your group leader?

José Miguel García Fraile went the extra mile and a half to ensure we had an excellent walking holiday. He has excellent local knowledge on walks, climbs, history, culture etc and obviously loves the area and is keen to encourage others to do the same. I was really impressed that he had done footpath clearance work and is keeping open some old routes that could fall out of use. We had poor weather forecast on one day and he found a good alternative to the advertised route, he clearly has a lot of walks up his sleeve

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

You need to understand that while some of the walking was on 4x4 tracks and pleasant little footpaths there was a lot of walking on steep rough ground over scree and rocks and you should come equipped with reasonably stiff mountain boots with good ankle support.You will find poles come in handy and bring bottles etc for at least 3 litres of water, it can be hot even in October. If you want to send post cards buy them and stamps that at Guadalest, the supply of stamps at Sella is not great. If you like to follow where you are going on the trip get there is an excellent 1:20000 map that covers most of what we did.
