    The itinerary was not accurate in terms of ascent & descent heights each day. Compared to other explore trips I have done, this one was definitely on the upper end of ‚Moderate‘. A head for heights is needed for the Cares gorge, as the walk is on the... Show more

    This was the most enjoyable hiking trip that I have been on with Explore. The views are stunning and the sense of achievement for completing the walks is fantastic. The grade of walk is described as moderate, but we all agreed that it veers towards... Show more

    The walks are a bit more difficult than they seem as the ascent isn't always included in the description so others not used to walking holidays found it hard going.

    Food at Sotres was plentiful and tasty, but as part of an active holiday it wasn't that healthy as there was a distinct absence of vegetables.eg one dinner was meat chips AND boiled potatoes with no vegetables. However, given the rural mountain aspect I... Show more

    Exceeded my expectations. What a fantastic area. Lots of tough, steep walking, much of it downhill. Some of the best walking I have ever done, including the best footpath I have ever walked - downhill from Tresviso to Urdon.
