SIERRA DE AITANA TREK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

This was a good hard week of walking, but the sense of achievement in getting to the tops of the peaks was great and the views were stunning. The area is really unspoilt which was refreshing. All three accommodations were welcoming, comfortable and served excellent food and wine and allowed us to get a taste of the real Spain.

What did you think of your group leader?

Jose was knowledgeable, friendly, good company and enthusiastic about his local area. Very good!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Bear in mind that although the weather is mostly good (and was great for us for 4 out of 5 days walking) you may encounter adverse weather conditions in winter and need to be prepared for this. On the last day though we were in T-shirts on top of the highest peak in the area and that was early February!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

This is an excellent week of immersion in Spanish culture, great walking and a bit of winter sunshine.
