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

Stewart T – Walking, Scrambling & Via Ferrata Week (April 2017)

Had a great time with Sam and Laura, as you say they are really good people, and I enjoyed my time with them. I’ve offered them the flat in London for Christmas and New Year so they can experience a bit of grey dampness away from all your end to end sunshine.
Just written a review for Trip Advisor.
Thanks for everything, I came a bit stressed and wired and had such a great time with you both, and of course Ms dry martini.
Best wishes to Jose and Felipe, and I’ll be in touch about both trips!
Stewart

Jules A – Walking Alpujarras (20th April 2017)

I just wanted to say what an amazing day I’ve had. Stewart was lovely and Jose is such a fantastic guide. I really can’t apologise enough for the series of cock ups leading up to the trek but it really was wonderful and I’m very grateful. I will be recommending you and would love to come back sometime.

Richard B -Ski Touring (January 2017)

A quick thank you for a great hike on Friday with Martin.

We ski-toured Cartujo which was brilliant! Conditions were varied and my skiing needs so work but Martin was an excellent guide and we had a great day. Felt pushed pretty hard but that’s what I wanted.

Thanks again – look forward to coming back again soon.

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.
