Denise, Andrew & Caroline – Mulhacen Ascent (30th – 31st May 2017)

Hi Richard and Kiersten

Just wanted to say a huge thanks for facilitating a wonderful experience for Andrew and Caroline when climbing Mulhacen last week. Everything was so easy and straightforward to arrange and Jens was a great guide for the trek.

Andrew’s school are putting an article on the school website, facebook and hopefully the Derby Evening Telegraph and Derbyshire Life in which Spanish Highs gets a mention – everyone was very impressed with their acheivement!

I’m sure Andrew will get back to you with news on how he does with Kilimanjaro – Mulhacen has been good preparation for this.

Hopefully we will get back to you at some stage in the future to organise some more treks.

Best Wishes

Denise

Just wanted to drop you an email to say thanks to you and your team for making our trip up to Mulhacen a very special one. If you can pass on a particular thanks to Nick for us that would be appreciated. He’s a top man and a great guide.  Nick mentioned the alpine training course you do and it might be something we are interested in trying in the future. Thanks Again

Added comments from Damir B who joined the same trip

By the way, Nick rules, he’s the best guide on the planet. I had some fantastic time. I am grateful to everyone in Spanish Highs.

Cameron M – Mulhacen Ascent (6th December 2016)

We just completed a 2 day trek to the highest point in Spains mainland with Spanish Highs. This was such an amazing experience and to make it even better the guides Felipe and Nick were the best. When the times got tough Felipe and Nick got the group going and our entire group summited. We felt in safe hands the whole time and the view from the top was worth the slog. Highly recommend them!

Kennith B – Mulhacen (6th December 2016)

Going up to climb Mulhacen, Spain’s highest main land mountain…and quite high for Europe. I did it over two days. 1000m up day one, 1000m up day two, 2000m down day two.

Everything wasn’t a problem, email and the answer was almost straight back.

Walking. Don’t get me wrong, you need to put in the effort, but you will be rewarded,

A camera is a must. The views are spectacular. Clouds at 2000m and you are at 3500m.. Sunrise next day… Imagine the ground can’t see what you see.

Be prepare to wear snow shows… never done that before. still got to the summit and never went over the side, but you do walk differently.

Eileen Kelly Group (Walking Alpujarras, October 2016)

Came home to a full mail box and a stack of post, so am only now finding time to thank you for the excellent service provided by you and your team during our recent stay in Lanjaron. I know you were somewhat taken aback when you realised our ages, but you dealt with that admirably and tactfully. You managed to push us beyond what some of us would have thought of as our limit, and in doing so gave us a memorable holiday. In particular I have to mention Jose, who gave most of us our heads, and then slowly, patiently and cheerfully got the slowest of us up Mulhacen. His love for, and knowledge of his country was very apparent, and he was a very interesting and informative guide. Although this was not a particularly arduous climb, it was one which we probably would not have undertaken on our own, and the fact that all 6 of us reached the top was wonderful – a day that we will not forget, and that will be talked about for a long time to come.

I have sung your praises to Jeremy of Camino ways, posted a review on Tripadvisor, and recommended Spanish Highs to all and sundry who enquired about our holiday – hope this might result in some well-deserved extra bookings for you next year.

I got there in the end! Mulhacen has been scrubbed from the Nearly Mountaineering Club’s record books! Jose was excellent and got us all to the top as a group. Thanks for the pictures.

Regards and many thanks for being part of my being able to accomplish an ambition and also to have enjoyed an amazing day in the high mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

All of us had a brilliant time so huge thanks again to you, Andrew and the whole team. The trek was exactly what we were after and Andrew’s knowledge and guidance, along with the circular route, made it all the better. I’d recommend Spanish highs to anyone looking for a great mountain experience.

Lenneke and Sander (Mulhacen May 2016)

We would like to thank you for an amazing experience. It was by far the most exciting experience we have ever had. Philipe and Nick where an amazing help, which we truly needed the last 400 meters to the summit. Amazingly challenged would be out way to describe out emotions now, and very very scared at the time. We will definitely recommend you to our friends.
