Beautiful Alpujarra

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Difficult to pick one - the views over the snow capped Sierra Nevada were hard to beat but also loved walking through the sunlit pine forests of Berchules Valley and wandering through the back streets of old town Granada.

What did you think of your group leader?

Excellent - welcoming and friendly, clearly passionate about the region, its culture and history and very willing to impart that knowledge which added enormously to the enjoyment. Great choice of local bars etc for good value tapa, beer and coffee too!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Don't ignore the advice about warm clothing on the trip notes! Berchules is at reasonable altitude and was definitely chillier than I'd expected in late March, even when the sun was shining, particularly on the higher parts of the walks - really could have done with a warm hat some days!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Particular thanks to the lovely hotel owners, who couldn't do enough to make their small family run hotel feel like a home from home for the week.
