Step Into Summer

A glorious time to walk in magnifcent mountain country!

From Saturday May 05, 2018 to Saturday May 12, 2018
Cost: £730.00
Availability: Full

Our routes take in the peace of high meadows and pastures watered by Arab acequias, as well as the local colour of the mountain villages. The new leaves of pyrenean oak and chestnut give shade and freshness to hillside walks. The air is scented with many varieties of broom and mountain herbs. We see shepherds on their way to summer grazing and pass sheepfolds of ewes and lambs, nanny goats and kids.

Graded EASY to MODERATE, the walks take us into the National Park mountains as well as the pretty whitewashed hill villages. Trails are seldom flat, so expect a reasonable amount of ascent and descent. No experience is necessary, but good health and reasonable fitness are important. (Ask us for details.)

Start the summer with this refreshing week of walks to suit, al fresco picnics and good company!

People Say…

"I've walked with Paul and Fiona several times and have always enjoyed it. They are very skilled and experienced and have a good deal of knowledge about the local fauna and flora. I feel safe with them, as it's clear that they are conscientious and responsible but can have fun too. They are both keen, experienced walkers themselves,as well as being knowledgeable, responsible, friendly and fun. The walks were varied and beautiful and being able to enjoy a little refreshment at the finish of them was perfect. "
