After leaving Lanjaron on Friday morning, we drove along the coast and stopped off at the caves of Nerja. I think Nick (and possibly you as well) had told us that they were worth a visit if we were passing, but not to expect too much. In fact, we were very impressed and thought they were well worth a visit! (If you go with fairly low expectations, you can often be surprised on the up-side!) For anyone wanting to fill in a few hours between Lanjaron and Malaga, we felt that this was a good option.
The flight was uneventful although Bristol airport was in thick fog (welcome back to the UK!) and so we had to circle before we could land. And then the battery in our car had gone flat – but great service from Silver Parking at Bristol – they had a man with a charger circulating the car park and he had us started within minutes.
All in all, we had a great holiday – our thanks to you, Kiersten, Nick and Andrew – great walks with good company!
Review left on trip advisor:
We booked the 6 days Alpujarras Escape walking tour, then allowed ourselves a couple of rest days before we did the 2 days Mulhacen ascent. We stayed in the Hotel Espana in Lanjaron, which was clean and friendly (and seemed to be popular with the locals!) We could not fault the organisation of our holiday in any way. A great variety of walks with three different leaders – Kiersten, Andrew and Nick – all of whom were great – good company, attentive to what we wanted to get out of our holiday and knowledgeable in their different ways (e.g. bird watching, farming and local customs). The walk up to the Refugio Poqueira was delightful. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t so good on our summit day and the top of Mulhacen was in thick cloud with strong winds. Thanks to Nick for getting us to the top and back down again safely! A great holiday – we will return!
