SIERRA DE AITANA TREK
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Looking down on the tower blocks of Benidorm from the peace and quiet of the mountains. A quick February swim in Vila de Joiosa on the free day. Finding a Nutella sandwich in the lunch bag on a long day. The specatcular views on every walk. A cold beer at the end of a long day.
What did you think of your group leader?
Jose was an excellent leader. He is so enthusiastic about sharing his beloved Sella and the local area. However, make sure all your gear is matching!! He takes looking good on the mountain very seriously. However, he also takes looking after the group seriously as well, and he was really good company for the week.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
We were there in February and during a cold spell. We needed all our warm clothes on the mountain and in some of the accommodation. Bring walking poles, some of the ascents/ descents are quite steep and on rough tracks. Be prepared for fairly long (but really rewarding) days. Try all the food- it is fantastic.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
This is a great break away from it all, with direct flights from Dublin (very important). I would highly recommend this holiday.
