More Alpine Overland holidays for 2014

General 2013 Posted on 22 October 2013 18:45

Just wanted to add Jackie’s post on holidays. A small group of us recently went on an Alpine Overland holiday to the Picos in Northern Spain. We had a great time – stunning scenery, amazing wildlife and fabulous walks. Val and I enjoyed Spain so much that we have booked to go back inh October next year but to the Pyrenees this time.

On the Pyrenees holiday we will have a local guide which should sort out the difficulties with Spanish maps. We will also have the wildlife expert who came with us to the Picos leading walks. So we should not only have great walks but also know which birds, plants and animals we are seeing!

It would be great if we could get together a small group of Sheffield people – it would balance out all those Lancastrians….

Happy to have a word with anyone new to Alpine Overland or indeed to anyone else thin king of going.
