In response to those interested in Spanish trips here’s an account of a great trip we made to Galicia with #offroadadventuretravel in September last year
We only had a week so kicked off with overnight ferry from Portsmouth and landing in Santander the following evening stayed locally At Santillana de la Mer. Day 1 was a long drive initially south then west to get us over to the general area we wished to explore but largely we found ourselves following the Camino de Compostela- a long distance pilgrims path culminating initially at the impressive Santiago de Compostela and then for the hardy the headland at Finnistere – all worthy of a few hours exploration.
Plenty of tracks in the hills and round the coast offered a huge variety of terrain and vistas, and with the luxury of having them pretty much to ourselves. With time of the essence we opted for hotels to save time on camping/cooking/packing which was a genius of an idea. Hotels were generally very good and the local food was outstanding and incredibly reasonably priced . Reckon our most expensive meal was £30 a head for 3 courses including wine!
Unfortunately the 110 let us down at quite possibly the furthest point from the Uk but here is where you really appreciate the benefit of a guided trip. Adam @ offroadadventuretravel really stepped up to the plate here. He knew exactly how to deal with the situation and the likely sequence of events that would ensue so his decision to get us to civilisation to wait for the AA was inspired- because at least we had access to food, toilets and WiFi! Despite the loss of the vehicle we were able to transfer our gear to his car and continue our trip. Although a few hours of off-roading were lost he took it all in his stride and was quick to quell any embarrassment we felt about the vehicle letting us down. The vehicle was returned 48 hours later with Adam dropping us at the garage and then he stayed with us as we embarked on the 350 mile return trip to the ferry with a clock very much ticking. Although the repair failed half way – even at 2am in the morning Adams professionalism shone through, staying with us till the AA recovery reappeared, hotel accommodation had been sorted and ferry travel rearranged. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable week despite vehicle challenges because of a 5 star service. We will definitely be returning to Galicia and we will definitely be customers of #offroadadventuretravel again – having just secured our place for the Pyrenees this June!
