Five days optional centre-based walking and one free day.
A one week trip, including five days gentle walking in the heart of the Picos.
Accommodation throughout is at the Hotel Torrecerredo, all rooms are en suite and the majority of meals are included.
7 nights at the family-run Hotel Torrecerredo.
All breakfasts, 5 picnic lunches and 6 dinners included.
We grade the tour as 'Leisurely/Moderate'. During the course of the week, we will do 5 day walks in and around the Picos Mountains.
There will be around 3-4 hours of walking per day, plus plenty of stops to take photographs, admire the views and, most importantly, take in the wildlife of the Picos. On occasion the walks may need to be adapted if we are presented with adverse weather conditions. The walking on this trip is not technically difficult and should not present difficulties for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and accustomed to walking in hilly areas.
Throughout the course of the season, the weather can vary greatly. If you are coming on the earlier or later dates, it can be cooler and we would advise that you bring warm clothing.
The area is also subject to rain at any time so it is best to be prepared for this before you travel.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 12, plus local leader photographer. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
