Walking the Picos de Europa - a very special part of Spain
We all think that Spain is an arid country with every town heaving with tourists, music blaring from every club, drunks roaming the street !!
Well think again. The Picos de Europa is the northern mountain range in Spain, with lush flora; fantastic gorge and mountain views; small villages and hamlet, and a so very different part of Spain.
We spent the last week of June on this trip and enjoyed every minute.
The hotel may only be 1 star, but is comfortable, has fantastic buffet breakfasts (cereal, fruits, drinks, meats, cheese, bread, etc), ample packed lunches (with choices of baguette filling, chocolate and muesli bars), and sublime 4 course evening meals (with 3 choices of main course).
The tour leader Nacho (Ignachio) was extremely proficient and friendly, ready with useful information and, very much, part of the group. The variety of landscape, local flora, long gorges, wonderful mountain peaks lead to some great experiences and unbelievably beautiful views.
One of our best Exodus trips so far, and so close to the UK
