Walking and Trekking Trip Reports

In July 2018 Fiona, Sam, Robert and Zara combined a guided hut to hut trek in the central and eastern massifs of the Picos with a self-guided route, the Liebana Skyline. We're looking forward to seeing them again in the winter for ski touring! Here are some of their lovely photos.
