Hi Andy, glad you had a great time on the villages of the guara holiday – it really is quite a special area. Hope to see you back in Spain in the future, Phil

We did the Guara National Park self guided village to village trip. It was wonderful. Hike Pyrenees has designed an excellent hiking vacation in a beautiful setting. The hotels were great and the Hike Pyrenees associates were extraordinary. The people are knowledgeable and helpful – giving great detailed directions and advice. Each hotel was unique and each provided really fine morning and evening meals – plus a lunch for the hike. If you plan a lay over day I suggest Rodellar where you can watch world class rock climbers in the canyon and the rooms are more like small apartments rather than hotel rooms.

And so it comes to an end… Where has this season gone! We had a celebratory paella along with a couple of very social drinks yesterday to celebrate the end of our 9th season of guiding here in the Pyrenees. Ken, Hannah and Inca head off back to Scotland tomorrow to relax a little before their Scottish winter season starts. The rest of the hike Pyrenees team will be busy working hard behind the scenes on new holidays for 2017, next year’s brochure and much much more including some interesting ideas to celebrate our 10th year!
Many thanks to everyone who joined us here this year, we’ve had a ball!

October – AUTUMN COLOURS – flowering bulbs, Spanish Ibex, resident and wintering birds.

The flowering plant seasons starts afresh as the temperatures drop and humidity rises, with autumn bulbs setting the scene; Yellow Autumn crocus grows between the rocks close to the village, Narcissus cavanillesii can be difficult to locate as it is such a tiny plant, the same goes for the delicate Autumn squill. Both Autumn colchicum and Autumn crocus are more visible and although very similar in colour and form, you can tell them apart by counting the stamens (3 for the crocus).
