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.

Carly Brooks – (Scrambling, October 2016)

I went on a scramble with my guide Victoria. We had a great day, she pushed me and encouraged me all they way. Victoria is an amazing and confident guide with great knowledge on the area which she’s more than happy to share as well as taking tons of pictures along the way that i can take back with me!

Can’t wait to come back.

Laurie Priebe – (Los Tres Miles & Via Ferrata October 2016)

My thanks to Richard, Jane and Felipe for 4 excellent days out that fulfilled my expectations. The via ferrata was an enjoyable and exciting novelty but mountaineering routes are more my style for multiple days out.

Anthony Dean (Scrambling, October 2016)

Cheers for the photos. And thanks for the guiding and help during the trip. I think all three of us found it to be a great experience.

Had a great time in the Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Cogollos, guided by Spanish Highs. All the scenery and landscapes are brilliant and definitely worth visiting. There is also some great fun to be had on the rocks and slopes of the mountains, with multiple scrambles and hikes to choose from. Our guides, Richard, Jose and Victoria, were all very accommodating and informative, making the trip even better. Whether you’re new to being in the mountains or more experienced and looking for new adventures, Spanish Highs’ accommodating style, organization and openness will make sure you get a brilliant and enjoyable trip.

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.

Alena Jirasek (Alpujarras Walking, September 2016)

Hi Kiersten & Richard, just wanted to thank you both for your most wonderful support & so also my enjoyment on the recent Alpujarra walks! You possibly have less idea of your contribution than those of us at the receiving end.. you made it feel easy when it wasn’t, so I would like it not to be understated or estimated, Best of luck in your next adventures & don’t forget Slovakia or Tasmania in your next considerations!

Jim Roache (Mulhacen, September 2016)

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.
