Feedback Favourites: Drop dead gorgeous & thoughtless walking
We have received some excellent feedback this week from two tours in particular, Majella National Park and the Camino Inglis. They've both made our top trips radar!
Majella National Park Trail
"This trip really is off the beaten path and really could not have been more beautiful."
is how Avid Adventurer, Julie, describes her self guided walking tour through Italy's Abruzzo National Park. "The hikes are so beautiful and different. The scenery is drop dead gorgeous. We loved the small lodgings and the women who ran them and their accommodations."
Known for its dramatic mountain scenery and untouched nature, The Majella National Park Trail will provide a truly authentic Abruzzesde experience. This trip gets 5 stars and also described as "a magical world, almost a secret to the rest."
"As any pilgrim knows, it is the journey as much as the destination."
Fred from Michigan, USA, offers tips for walking the Camino Ingles
. "The first and last days are physical and emotional transition days. It takes a while to leave Ferrol itself, and to leave the world behind. And the last day to Santiago is shorter in length with half being the greater Santiago area. Both cities are fine places, but the middle three days of this walk are the prize, with alternative paths and back roads, villages and woods. There are some steep roads and paths. Being less popular as a route to Santiago you may be alone on the way all day, which may be exactly what you wanted (like me) or precisely not. Even though I had two days of rain, the path was very muddy, but there is a fair amount of stone pathway that could turn an ankle if you are not attentive. As the information indicates, you will not find much English spoken, even at hotels. But as it is a pilgrim route people do expect strangers to walk through town and you will get locals wishing you "Buen Camino" as you go." The other tips Fred kindly offered included: carry dry socks, carry a walking stick, and take something for nourishment.
We value your feedback and look forward to reading your reviews. So, again, thank you. You are keeping us on track as we continue to successfully organise thousands of self-guided walking, cycling and activity tours across the UK, Europe and Worldwide.
