There is nothing like going back to the basics: the outdoors freshness, the nature in full, the personal satisfaction of a completed challenge, all the good that exercise does to our health. And all of these in the most natural way possible: walking.
Therefore, it is only logical that the passion for mountain and hiking is gaining more and more followers throughout Spain. What do you need? Well, very little, besides ourselves and our disposition: just some equipment, a path and the desire to have fun.
So today from Walkaholic we want to applaud and thank those who have become true hiking and mountain gurus in Spain, and have taught and helped us to develop our passion.
We can’t mention all of them, of course, and it would be impossible for us to give them an order of priority. Behind each one of these blogs there is lots of time and effort of the people who help us to place trekking and mountaineering among the preferred outdoors activities to get to know the natural wonders of our country.
