I’ve Been on My Hols27th June 2012 • Places to Visit • Stephanie Donaldson
Most years we try and go on a walking holiday looking at flowers and birds with Naturetrek. This year it was the Picos d’Europa in Northern Spain which was a complete revelation. Awe-inspiring mountain landscapes, limestone gorges, green valleys with rushing rivers where the salmon still run, eagles and vultures wheeling overhead and sublime wildflowers. It was everything we had hoped for and much more. Our guides Lee & Jim knew what to look for and where to find it which meant we saw much more than if we had been travelling independently. It was a real treat. This is a taste of the scenery.
