Schöne Wandermöglichkeiten an den Ausläufern der Pyrenäen
Runderherum schöne und erholsame Reise. 2-3 Wandermöglichkeiten pro Tag ist ideal, wenn man jeden Tag neu entscheiden kann, was man sich für den Tag zutraut und wie lange man wandern möchte. Die Ortschaften waren auch alle sehr nett, vor allem die erste und letzte Station.

Erstklassige Tour. Schöne Unterkünfte, noch bessere Verpflegung.
Schöne Tour aus einem Guss. Kein Transfergedöns, einfach nur Wandern und den Kopf frei bekommen. Berg-oder Meerlastige Varianten je nach Gusto und Tagesform. Hotels, bis auf Eines, alle nett und mit eigener Note. Jeden Abend Menü im Restaurant inklusive. Schwerpunkt Fisch und Meeresfrüchte auf hohem Niveau. Start und Zielort sehr schön, aber auch im Touristen-Focus. Auf den Etappen ist man aber praktisch allein, was wir sehr genossen haben.

Frühlingswandern im warmen Süden
Eine wunderbare Reise, um dem kalten Wetter in der Heimat zu entfliehen und Sonne und Meer zu tanken. Allerdings war es noch deutlich zu frisch zum Baden. Unterkünfte und Essen waren hervorragend, die Tour absolut sehenswert. Insgesamt absolut zu empfehlen!
