A Collett’s mountain holiday in the Picos
2 walks a day – 5 days a week (+ 1 walk on Saturday) – free of charge – totally optional
low / medium & high level
Your stay in the Picos de Europa will surely be enhanced by our Organised Walks. Six days a week (not Wednesday), our Walk Organisers organise wonderful walks, one more demanding than the other, in the spectacular walking areas in and around the Picos de Europa. You can join as many Organised Walks during your stay as you like at no extra cost. Simply drop into Office Hour to discover what walks are on offer and arrange to take part in whatever takes your fancy. Our Organised Walks set off soon after breakfast and we generally return to the village mid/late afternoon.
Our routes vary from rambles through low level flower strewn meadows, to breathtaking itineraries through the dramatic Picos massifs. Low and medium level walks follow woodland tracks and riverside trails that link picturesque hamlets. Some of our medium level walks also take place on easier high level trails. Our harder walks are on stunning high trails which give wonderful panoramas and breathtaking itineraries.
Two key attractions for walkers coming to the Picos de Europa are the Cares Gorge and Fuente De. Once a week, we shall visit each of these. This should ensure that all guests have the opportunity to enjoy both of these breathtaking itineraries during their stay with us.
Throughout May and June the easier of our two Organised Walks is likely to provide walkers, who are also flower enthusiasts, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the stunning wildflowers that are on display at this time of year.
Finally, Collett’s is used to looking after walking groups and clubs and can help put together memorable holidays. We are happy to offer larger parties a dedicated programme of Organised Walks or, if you prefer, plenty of Ideas & Information from which to walk independently.
At your own risk
You join our organised itineraries and make use of our ideas & information at your own risk. It is important that you understand that whilst our own walkers have substantial local knowledge and are familiar with the routes which our organised walks follow, they are not qualified mountain guides.
