Walking the Picos de Europa

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Just sensing my own insignificance in the face of the enormity of those mountains. One gains a whole new perspective on life.

What did you think of your group leader?

Alvaro is passionate and knowledgeable about his own region of Spain. Amongst his exceptional qualities as a walking guide is human compassion. My 76 year-old body was not always up to the challenge of those magnificent mountains. Alvaro knew exactly when to give me encouragement to go the extra mile. As a consequence I return home with a sense of accomplishment and very, very happy memories of my week
