    personally- I thought with the exception of the ascent of the highest peak the walks were easy, not Moderate as they are flat in long stretches. I would prefer the walks to have been longer with some more interesting climbs.

    All in all a fantastic holiday. Slightly more challenging than I was expecting as it was classed as moderate but I enjoyed pushing myself and the rewarding views were worth it.

    We had a great group with everyone up for trying everything, joining in with meals, doing all the walks etc. This makes a real difference to how you feel towards the holiday overall. Benny set the tone on the first evening to help achieve this.
