Well I am always up for something new. Decided to try a walking holiday with Ramblers UK and plumbed for this one week in northern Spain with a group of unknown people – a dip into the unknown.
Arr here April 1 after joining up with group at Malaga Airport. Flight from Glasgow was with Jet2.com leaving at 06-50. Group assembly was made with fellow Ramblers UK clients and guide Ursula. The group members came from London, Manchester and Canadians.
A journey by coach of about 1.5 hrs up into the Axarquia district from Malaga got everyone introducing themselves to within the group of 19 persons. Ursula the guide gave us an update of the surrounding area and what was to happen in the evening before dinner.
After checkin and a short rest it was off to do a check of the town of Competa with Ursula and the group.
Back to hotel Balcon de Competa for our nightly debrief for the day ahead.
Full instructions of the week ahead and the task/objective for tomorrow April 2.
Day one local circular walk via Canallis.
Day two up via Peuteo Collobro and then upwards before descending back into Canallis.
Day three short taxi ride to begin route around to Arabic town of Salares.
Day four was a rest day.
Day five a route to Frigiliana about 17km.
Day six a high local ridge route.
There will be spelling errors and photos to add at a later date.
After reading I will update as and when possible.
