WALKING THE PICOS DE EUROPA

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The highlight of the week had to be walking the Cares Gorge with its ever-changing views of cliffs and peaks. It contrasted nicely with the mountain walks up Pena Main and Manciondiu which both offered great views across the rest of the Picos and down to the coast.

What did you think of your group leader?

Pilar was excellent, knowing the area and its nature well and with good English (our group Spanish being limited). She looked after us well keeping an eye on both front and back markers and her close connection with the hotel made for a very pleasant stay.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

If you like mountain walking this is an area you should visit. The scenery and walking are spectacular and different and it is not too busy.
