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

Shaun W & Damir B – Mulhacen (March 2017)

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.

We made a two day climb of peak Mulhacen for my 50th birthday. It was a great experience! Everything was perfect! The guides, Filipe and Nick, were very nice, helpful, supportive, and fun ☺

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.

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.

Thank you so much for this donation and thank you also for looking after our 10 volunteers last week and returning them to us safely. It was a really tough challenge and we know that they all feel very proud of themselves that they were able to complete it.
They have raised a lot of much needed funds for our charity. Thank you so much for helping them and this donation is a really nice touch.
Warm Regards
All at L.I.P.S.

Clare Moran family (Trekking Sierra Nevada, July 2016)

Yes, it’s brilliant! He took lots of lovely photos, please thank him for that. All proof that a good time was had by all, at least some of the time! We were lucky to have that sunshine as it’s cloudy today. Thanks for organising our trip, I hope we can return to do some more walking in the future, maybe without unwilling children!


David Abbott (Tres Miles, Sept 2016)

Richard, many thanks for your very kind donation and a brilliant week. Really enjoyed myself and will definitely be back to try another challenge. Please say thanks to everyone including Steve, Jose and of course Snoopie.
