The Alpujarras and Granada

I really loved this walking vacation! It has everything: culture with Al Hambra, beautiful villages and nice walks in nature. The hotels are all very nice and clean and the baggage always arrived there before I reached the hotel. The trails are not always very easy to follow so make sure to have both a gps and the route notes (I used my garmin phoenix 5s watch and it worked perfectly). It is also nice that you can chose how long you would like to walk on some days. I never really got lost and I am not a great navigator! I did get a few scratches here and there from some bushes but nothing too serious. I was travelling as a woman alone and never felt unsafe. Even though I did not meet a lot of other hikers on the trail, mostly there is phone network and the one place where there was no network (siete lagunas), there were plenty of other hikers. Also all of the hotels were aware of my imminent arrival so if I would not have come I am sure they would have inquired after my progress on the trail. Niall always replied to me very quickly to my inquiries and the local travel company in Spain was really helpful when I informed them that my luggage had gone missing by the airline.The hotels are aware that I am vegetarian and most of the meals were really amazing (and really a lot) All in all definetely worth booking this trip!

North Sea Trail: Løkken - Skagen

We had a stupendous experience hiking the North Sea Trail! The unspoiled natural scenery was unforgettable, including miles of pristine white sand beaches and stunning dune moorland. The accommodations were quaint with friendly and entertaining owners who took pride in welcoming us to their country and its traditions. The highlight was standing at Grenen with feet in both seas but equally moving was the scenery on the way to Rabjerg Mile, where the trail ran along the spine of some high dunes with views of the North Sea on one side and crystal blue lakes on the other. Niall was easy to reach and answered all questions effectively. We will treasure our memories of this hiking adventure and hope to do more in the future!
