Walking in the Picos

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

No magic moment it was just a great trip with nice people staying in a nice hotel run by extremely helpful owners for whom nothing was too much trouble .

What did you think of your group leader?

I work in the outdoor industry and he is someone I would be very happy to work with . His knowledge of the flora and fauna routes and mountain summits was excellent. He also gave us an insight into the life , culture and economies and politics of Spain particularly the North . He has what money cannot buy -PASSION.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

I looked at a number of weather forecast before leaving for a number of weeks before our departure date. They all said rain in parts throughout the day and they were ALL WRONG . We got wet once and the rest of the time it was brilliant sunshine ! The weather in the Picos is very localised and you need to be prepared for it .

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Food was excellent to the point of when faced with the option of eating in the village or another night at the hotel we all decided to stay in the hotel - no better recommendation !
