Walking Picos de Europa

One of our best walking weeks ever. We were blessed with excellent weather and all the walks were able to be done as per the itinerary. Really enjoyed meeting all the other lovely people we shared the week with.

Picos de Europe

Spectacular mountain walking, sometimes through meadows, woods and on rough tracks. The walking got progressively harder each day, it was challenging without being difficult. The pace was well judged, those who wanted to walk a bit faster were encouraged to go on ahead with directions of where to wait for the rest of the group. Alvaro our guide was knowledgeable and caring, he made the holiday extremely enjoyable. The weather (in September 2014) was perfect. Hotel Torrecerredos was an excellent location, very close to the town. Jim's cooking was excellent with good vegetarian options. Really could not fault this holiday in any way.

'Picos de Europa'

I had a wonderful week walking and trekking in this stunning mountain area. Every day was different and the varied terrain and views were amazing. The hotel owners, Jim and Pilar and their staff made us feel very welcome and the food was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Our group got on really well and we shared many laughs especially over a cold beer or cider at the end of each day.

I went on the Picos de Europa trip during the first week of June 2014. On day 1 we were driven to the hotel and pretty much left to our own devices. Then over the next 6 days we had 5 days of trekking with 1 day off in-between for R&R. The walking was challenging but there were no technical difficulties and everyone completed the walks. The scenery every was stunning and we were pretty lucky with the weather. This is apparently the wettest bit of Spain and it did rain on 2 of the 8 days but on every other day it was warm and sunny with excellent visibility. Temperatures generally low 20s C. Warm but not uncomfortable. The hotel is pleasant with very friendly staff and the food is excellent. The hotel bar is good value,, however but there are a number of good bars and restaurants (and touristy shops) in the town of Arenas.

A wonderful week

This is a fantastic opportunity to walk in dramatic limestone country. The routes are varied and not too challenging, the wild flowers amazing and the accommodation, food and staff first class. I have travelled with Exodus many times over the last 16 years and this is one of the best.

Picos de Europa

This is an excellent trip for the moderate walker. It combines fantastic scenery in which to hike, a well informed, diligent and capable tour leader, excellent rural village accommodation with superb food and incredible local hospitality. The Picos de Europa is a beautiful region of Spain and rivals the better known ranges in Europe for scenery and grandeur. It is well worth the visit. The Hotel Torrecerredos is a perfect base from which to enjoy the daily hikes. It provides suitable rural hotel style accommodation but it also provides superb food, wine and hospitality. The local value for money was phenomenal, the last night night team meal in the Cafe Restaurant Cares was just 15 Euros for three huge courses with wine included.

Walking in the Picos de Europa

The holiday was better than expected. The Picos are a spectacular range of mountains, and the Hotel, Hotel staff, and Group leader made the holiday one of the most memorable we've had.
