SIERRA DE AITANA TREK
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The entire trip was pretty awesome, The views are so varied, it is impossible to get bored with the scenery. It seemed that at least a couple of times a day, we turned a corner and all said "Wow! I didn't expect to see that!". The places we stayed were friendly and clean. The best has to be the last - a homestay with the lovely warm Violetta and her beautiful family in their rambling but awesome family farm home. You could stay a week in that place and still have cool things to discover.
What did you think of your group leader?
Jose was witty, knowledgeable, and a real people person. He was passionate about his local area (where we were walking) and even invited us all round to the little cottage and smallholding he was working do hard to build and grow.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Trekking poles are strongly recommended - there are many steep and rocky climbs and descents and your feet and knees do get a bit of a bashing! I would rate this more as a C grade trip. Long days and steep climbs / descents made for very hard work, albeit in stunning scenery.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
This is such a beautiful and undiscovered place. We saw almost no other walkers during our entire week. Strongly recommended.
