The View From Spain



This photo of the Pyrenees comes from our longtime guests, Aubrey and Diane Whitear. Aubrey and Diane hiked our Pays Basque and French Pyrenees tour last summer and returned to the Pyrenees this spring to explore the Spanish side of the range. They shot this photo near the village of Santa Pau. 

Where have you hiked this year? Please send us your photos or share them on our Facebook page. 

Thank you Aubrey and Diane, for sending us this shot!

Here's a hint. You'll find water and inspiring vantage points. (Check out the guy playing his guitar!)




The mountains are BIG. 




Adventure components abound.






There's culture. (What's a Ryder-Walker hiking tour without miscellaneous sheep?)




Of course the hiking is great, and the views go on forever.
