SIERRA DE AITANA TREK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

All of it really - two things in particular: reaching the summits each day to have lunch with stunning views and a real sense of achievement; and our guide Jose. Jose was ceaselessly motivational, passionate about the area, extremely knowledgeable, fun, sensitive to the group's needs, always aiming to surprise us with hidden treasures and delights of a view whilst being constantly concerned about our wellbeing. 

What did you think of your group leader?

As above - Jose was a real star.  He was ceaselessly motivational, passionate about the area, extremely knowledgeable, fun, sensitive to the group's needs, always aiming to surprise us with hidden treasures and delights of a view whilst being constantly concerned about our wellbeing. A top guy!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Lots of people advised taking trekking poles. Jose was happy to lend his out when needed, so that helped on the descents when I needed them but meant I didn't need to carry them most of the time when not needed. Jose had brought several pairs, so you could get by without taking your own, but if you rely on them do take some.   Make sure you take plenty of water bottles - we refilled at several springs but a few had dried up!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Highly recommended - catered well for everyone, whether solo or couples or more!  Go for it!!
