SIERRA DE AITANA TREK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

What was going to be put in the sandwiches each day!

What did you think of your group leader?

The local leader (Jose Miguel) was extremely informative about the area and brought great enthuasism to his job.  He managed the group well, ensuring that all members were able to participate in the walks.  He was also very helpful in dealing with medical dietary requirements, as were the two accommodation places.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Make sure you are fit enough and have some experience of more strenuous paths/terrain conditions and, in the cooler months of the year, have all the appropriate gear. Take walking poles, but ensure you have experience in using them properly beforehand. Be open-minded about the possible requirement to share bathrooms in the second accommodation.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Casa Roc (the second accommodation) had very good kitchen facilities and the opportunity to make hot drinks was really appreciated, particularly at the end of a day's walking.  The hosts (Steve and Liz) were very obliging and eager to help our stay go smoothly. Even staying locally in Sella on the day off enabled individuals to do a wide range of activities.
