Premiumwege zum Wandern
im Sommer und im Winter!
For many years I have hiked once a year with friends in Germany or elsewhere in Europe, usually on trails we have not previously followed.
This year we opted for the Pyrenees, the mountains on the border between France and Spain.
However, it proved difficult to plan the tour. By chance I then received an e-mail in which a hiking guide offered to organise and lead hiking tours in the Pyrenees!
Naturally, this mail was very helpful for our plans, so I got in touch with its author. A short time later, Alvaro de Andres visited me in our office in Dillenburg. Alvaro studied and completed his doctorate in Stuttgart, speaks excellent German, and lives in a quiet side valley of the Pyrenees, which to date has been mostly spared from mass tourism.
The plan worked out by Alvaro appealed to us, and we departed for the Valle de Hecho at the end of July. It was a wonderful week of hiking!
Our guide, who was completely familiar with the country and its people, had found a small, cosy mountain hotel for us. Imanol, the hotelier, brews his own beer, and his wife Luzia is in charge of the kitchen. Only local meals are served.
Our group really enjoyed it, and so I decided to include this hiking trip in our catalogue. The tour is described in more detail on page 109 and online here. If you have any further questions, you are welcome to call me or send an e-mail.
