A Beautiful and Undiscovered Part of Spain and Very Challenging Walking

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The whole area, stunning scenery and remote and challenging walking.

What did you think of your group leader?

We instantly warmed to Alvaro as soon as we met him. He is extremely knowledgeable, very motivated and passionate about his Country and knows how to deliver challenging walks to suit a challenge hungry group. However, he does also consider the shortfalls of the group and offers alternative shorter routes and short cuts to the less capable members of the group.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Remember, a challenging week is what is says and does offer higher mileage, altitude and longer days too. Make sure you are fit and prepared before you embark on the challenging week.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The day-off excursions offered are well planned, flexible and accommodating. Excellent return (there and back!) transport is arranged by the hotel staff at a moderate cost. We did the coastal walk to Llanes which provided us with contrasting coastal scenery, with views of the Picos in the background. We had an excellent lunch at Casa del Mer in Llanes, as recommended by Jim at the Hotel. A very rewarding trip in all respects.
