Picos de Europa - Recommended
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The panorama of the Naranjo de Bulnes from the La Mesa peak in the Main range of mountains
What did you think of your group leader?
Alvaro is someone special. He obviously loves the area and was able to find and identify plants, animals and birdlife for us as well as providing information on local history and customs. Where someone in the group had a particular interest he would pick up on this and point things out to them accordingly. He did an excellent job of looking after a group of people with different abilities, taking good care of the less capable/experienced walkers without frustrating those who wished to go at a faster pace
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
We were fortunate enough to have good weather, but it was obvious from the condition of some of the paths that it could get very muddy in places. Depending on the time of year it would be best to be prepared for this as you might not be so lucky as we were
Is there anything else you would like to add?
This was our first trip with Exodus. I very much liked the approach of using a leader with local knowledge of the area being visited
