Simply wonderful

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Taking the scramble to the summit of Mancondiu on the last day, and the Cares Gorge in fantastic weather (OK we were lucky there!).

What did you think of your group leader?

Alvaro is a true star. A local, with a fantastic knowledge of the Picos mountains, and a true dedication to protecting and preserving an area he truly loves. The only guide I've met with the ability to treat each of 16 people as an individual rather than just another visitor, Combine that with a great sense of humour and what more can you wish for?

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Watch the weather. It can be very variable and changes rapidly.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Not one for severe vertigo sufferers!
