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.
Standing on one of the very high peaks and feeling on top of the world.
Alvaro was excellent. His heart and soul belongs to the mountains and he is an inspiration. His attention to detail and his very caring attitude is second to none. A truly lovely young man.
Before going check what is currently available in your room at the hotel. For instance.......during our week......there were no hairdryers in the rooms (although Pilar did provide some for those guests who did not bring one). Also there is lovely shampoo, soap and shower gel provided in the bathroom............so no need to use your weight allowance for these items.
A perfect week from start to finish.
last year I went tot de PIcos de Europa and thought this was the best holiday I ever had.
this year in september I returned and quess what; perfect can be even more perfect (as a matter of saying)
I'm from Holland , a journalist of nature and know my wishes

alvaro saiz is 'the best that can happen to you'
just one: go!
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.
Can't pinpoint one moment, the Cares Gorge was spectacular and the higher ascents were breathtaking, it is just such a worthwhile experience.
Outstanding, extremely knowledgeable on the local area (born and bred nearby) and passionate about the Picos, he took great care in looking after those who needed extra help.
Carry plenty of water and take a sunhat. I took poles although I'd never used them before and was grateful for them. I definitely recommend this trip.
There's really no restiction, whatever feels comfortable for you. Whether that's a wheelie case or a rucksack, you won't be carrying it too far so don't worry!

Great! You will usually get a packed lunch - bagette, fruit and chocolate for example. For dinner, they rustle up some lovely, homemade local dishes each evening. You will also usually dine out at a local restuarant one night of the week for some local flavour!

The Torrecerredo is a small family run hotel, and the only hotel in Arenas with views of the highest peaks. It has a very pleasant garden terrace attached to the café bar and the panoramic restaurant gives views right up to the mountains. All rooms have ensuite facilities and the hotel is situated in a rural setting, a five minute walk from the centre of the village, which is well serviced with banks, cafes and shops.

Exodus client Phillip Beck travelled to the Picos and you can read his article here to get a personal viewpoint of the holiday.
Yes, this trip is centre based so if you would prefer to take off any of the days, you're free to do your own thing. Obviously we hope you'll take advantage of all that is on offer, but it's still a holiday, not a forced march!
