Information for walkers
What should I expect in a typical week?
Groups meet, after breakfast, outside the hotel ready to go at 09.30, and board our own private coach with professional driver (No more waiting/queuing/standing on public buses). The journey to the start point takes about an hour and has been described by our walkers as “a treat in itself” with terrific coastal and/or mountain scenes.
(If you have any problem with coach travel try some ginger tablets.
(You can buy them from a homeopathic shop in England before you come. They work without any side effects)
The walks start at any point between sea level and 7,000ft and are generally undulating. However there are one or two steeper acents/decents. If this would give you a problem check the walks list carefully and contact us if you need clarification. The higher altitude walks tend to involve less ascending/descending.
All four walks in each week last 4+ hours, with stops for drinks/picnic lunch and we return you to Puerto around 4.30-in time to swim in the hotel pool or to shop, etc. (Shops open between 9am-9pm)
This is a walking holiday and as such our main consideration is providing outstanding walks. Non-walking partners are welcome. We provide a balanced and varied programme in each of the four walking areas with occasional opportunities to swim and invariably a bar/café at the end.
There are four main walking areas. If you book for two weeks or three weeks you will visit the same area again but the walk will be very different. If you arrive on Friday the first walk will be Saturday; if you arrive on Tuesday the first walk will be Wednesday. Should you need to arrive on a different day you might need to add an extra day so that you can be included in all four walks. You can come for any number of days 7-8-9- etc one, two or three+ weeks.
