PICOS PEAKS & GORGES

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The most inspirational moment was a day when Victor took us out on a gloomy day but after quick a long walk and then a good scramble we rose above the clouds and could see all the major peaks. Also the Cares Gorge walk, although 12KM each way had some breathtaking views.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our guide Victor is a highly skilled, well qualified and knowledgable. Being a local man and 3-4 generations of his family lived and worked in the region he gave us a good account of the local history of the area as well.  Victor was a very good leader and left no body behind and respected everyone's abilities. Without any doubt Victor made the holiday a success and he is a credit to Jim, Pilar and Exodus.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Be prepared for a 2 hour 15 min transfer from Bilbao. Santander would be a better choice. 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

On warm days ensure you take enough water with you. One of the day's was about 25C and a number of the group were getting low on water. I took a Camelbak / hydration bladder and that served the purpose. I used the hotel tap water, no problem.
