SIERRA DE AITANA TREK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Great views across the Sierra to the coast. Wonderful Spanish home cooking at Benimantell. 

What did you think of your group leader?

Good fun, very knowledgable and clearly a local celebrity.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

It might just about be a B/C grade, but it's pretty close to a C; there are a couple of longer days, there's the odd short scrambly bit and sometimes because the area is so rarely walked the trail is a bit rough. The trip notes describe the walks very accurately, so read those rather than just go by the grade. This is all good, but it's best to know what to expect. April and May departures are likely to be pretty warm, although there was always a breeze up on the ridges.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Jose Miguel rather undersold the optional visit to Villa Joiosa on the coast on the free day - those that went really enjoyed it.
