    PICOS PEAKS & GORGES

    Beautiful mountainous scenery, but be sure you are fit if you book on the 'C' grade holiday as the days are pretty long (7 hrs) and there is a lot of UP...

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Well standing on the peaks of course

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Victor is a very friendly chatty guy, full of stories.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Its a pretty straight forward walking holiday but does require a good level of fitness if you go on the 'C' grade holiday otherwise you may feel you are keeping the group back.

    PICOS PEAKS & GORGES

    A challenging walking trip to a beautiful area that's relatively close to home.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The area around the Picos de Europa National Park has some breathtaking views that I didn't expecting to find so close to home.  I was also pleasantly surprised at the lack of any tourist activity in the area- to the extent that we didn't see another walker for the first 4 days walking (although this was March and still the low season) 

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Victor, the group leader was excellent. He tailored some of the trips based on his assessment of the groups ability on the first day. This meant that we saw some views that were additional to the standard itinery.

    PICOS PEAKS & GORGES

    Comfortable, friendly, 'laid back' hotel with great food - loved the generous provision of packed lunches as well as the evening meals.  Very competent and knowledgeable local guides.  Stunning walks and scenery well worth the challenge of the steep uphills!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Standing on the peak of Macondiu and slowly taking in the astounding 360 degree panorama of the Picos ranges.Taking a well earned lunch break on a high sunny meadow and hearing nothing but the sound of cow bells.Taking off my hot sweaty boots and feeling the lovely refreshing icy cold water on my feet as we picked our way across a faster than usual flowing river.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Victor - an absolute gem. Fantastic local knowledge personalised through his family connections.  Excellent communication skills. Sensitive to the needs and varied abilities of the group.  Hot on health and safety without belabouring it.  I had complete confidence in him.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for some challenging but rewarding walking.  Check the dates on the trip notes as some weeks are upgraded from 'moderate' to 'challenging'.  I didn't and got a bit more than I bargained for, but I'm told that even the 'moderate' rated weeks are still quite tough if you're not at your fittest and/or used to long, often steep uphill walks.  The clue's in the name, really "Peaks and Gorges"!
