We started at a lovely traditional hotel at Aguimes. We did a walk along the Guayadeque canyon on the first day. Then moved on to the west to our next hotel in La Aldea. The highlights of the week for me were, climbing up to Roque Nublo, climbing over the Aldea Pass and walking through the lovely villages and cave dwelling areas.
Our guide, Bert was excellent, he had all the right qualities to make the trip enjoyable for keen walkers. The walks were chosen well and at the right level for abilities. He was always attentive and in good spirits. It became clear also, that wherever we went he was well thought of by locals as he was greeted warmly. Always a good sign.
I would recommend this holiday highly.

This walking holiday requires fitness, but some of the walks had steep narrow zig zag paths that were covered in loose rock which was tricky to negotiate if you were used to walking on broad paths in the Lake District. So more difficult than the brochure would suggest. However the reward for this was spectacular vistas of the mountains and valleys. Highlights were the walk to Pico Castellet through the Canarian fir tree forest of Inagua, and an optional walk to Guigui beach on the west coast, a wild and unspoilt area.

The guide, Viktor, was brilliant. He really made it with his personality, encouragement of all participants, even up the steepest hills, local knowledge, suggestions for activities. The scenery was stunning and the walking routes superb. This is a walking trip and people need to be prepared to do serious hiking. Also where we were staying was not big on nightlife, but Viktor always organised good restaurants for us to go to. It's a busy trip.

Highlight has to be the panorama walk that was later in the week. As the tour leader said every step is gold! The scenery is unbelievable and the people so nice especially when you have a go at speaking Spanish

The walks were amazing just like a mini gran canyon. Take all weather gear as very cold at the top of the mountain. Take swimming gear great indoor pool at the end of the street.

I've already reported on this tour. Last March is a long time ago!

I didn't like the hotel. We had a room with a view of an internal staircase. There was no outside terrace where we could sit comfortably. There was no bar. There was no comfort.

The town was boring. We found one café where we could sit outside. There is a sports centre with a pool but I'm no swimmer. I need a bit more entertainment when the walking is over.

We had four organised walks. And two free days. Our leader said there was nothing to do except go for another walk. Well, four or maybe five were enough for me, really. The brochure suggested going to the capital for the day but our leader said that it is not a good trip on two buses each way. And on the last day we went to a tourist resort (not Explore's thing, I thought) because we had a lot of time to kill before catching the plane. I'd have preferred to go to the capital but apparently the bus company won't do that.
