What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Suddenly seeing a colony of goldfinches flitting about the conifers... Waking up to the rugged snow capped peaks outside the chalet window with snow and sunlight sparkling on them. Lying in the hot tub after a long walk. 

What did you think of your group leader?

A classic! Very funny, a master of puns, and a truly warm and sociable character. Lots of laughs all week, and some loud groans too. (We hope the nuns enjoy the Spencer Tracey moments).  Elaine's cakes are legendary, and there were generous slices in the mega packed lunches.  We were all sad to say goodbye to Oliver and Elaine

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Make sure you have all the gear, weather can be changeable from cold to or simply pouring! The walks are great though, so don't be put off. Lose weight before you go, they feed you well and you will GAIN weight despite all the exercise. 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you like walking, mountains and scenery, not too far from home, this is definitely it.
