From Pyrenees to the Sea Walk by Rich, 11 Oct 2017
Holiday Rating:

Catalonia's wine regions

The holiday is essentially a few trails from this site: http://www.itinerannia.net/en/ which is a regionally organised hiking trail network. All the accommodation is listed on this site as well so very easy to scope out what is on offer and the scale of the hikes. The walks are varied and pretty with lots of ridges providing views across the landscape. It is all fairly close to the coast so often these views reach all the way out to the beach...

The holiday is essentially a few trails from this site: http://www.itinerannia.net/en/ which is a regionally organised hiking trail network.

The walks are varied and pretty with lots of ridges providing views across the landscape. It is all fairly close to the coast so often these views reach all the way out to the beach. The route planned by Inntravel is not too demanding and around 4 hours walking each day, and due to the website listed above, it is all well marked out and easy to follow. Very nice villages but be aware that they are small so options for restaurants in the evening can be limited especially if you are not in the main months of summer.

I found Inntravel slow in their service and overall their communication was unclear and not always helpful. They seemed to imply that aspects of the trip were covered but it surfaced over time that some things were not included which required additional costs and effort to solve. As a solo traveller they charged more than their website outlines for their services and they do not provide marked up maps, or GPS for their roots, leaving me feeling like I was doing all the work for this holiday myself. Disappointing.

We are pleased that you enjoyed the holiday itself but sorry you were disappointed with our services. As per our direct communication, we feel that our information is clear that our prices are based on 2 people sharing a double or twin room and also sharing the fixed costs of luggage transfers and taxis. A link to this information is provided on each individual holiday web page. In line with our information on this, and based on the requirements outlined by you on your booking form, a price was quoted, which you accepted; it was further adjusted as a result of availability issues, which you also accepted, all of which occurred prior to you being committed to the holiday. There were no further additional costs beyond this.
Our detailed route notes include an 'On the Map' section which allows customers to mark up the maps with the routes themselves, which also serves as a familiarisation exercise with the route prior to setting out. With regard to providing GPS information for our routes, this is under discussion and we are in the process of collating this information to provide it where available for our routes as and when this is requested.

Excellent

A thirteen night self guided walk from the Pyrenees to the Sea. Luggage transfers and almost all meals were included. A wonderful experience.

Best travel experience ever!

We did most of Inntravel's "From the Pyrenees to the Sea" in Catalonia (time did not allow us to do the entire route). We could not have been happier. Every logistical detail was covered, the hotels and inns were delightful and varied, the walking notes were complete and the meals, from the simplest picnic to the fanciest dinner, were delicious. Our holiday was filled with delightful surprises. We are looking forward to our next walking vacation ...

Excellent organization as always and a very genjoyable walk in the Pyrenees.

A very enjoyable two days in Barcelona looking at all the sights and then a week of excellent walking in the beautiful foothills of the Pyrenees. The travel, hotel and food organization was excellent.

Inntravel as usual provided excellent information prior to the holiday and all their organization was spot-on. The whole holiday package worked like clockwork.

We're delighted to hear you enjoyed the holiday - one of the aspects we most like about this walking route is the constantly changing scenery as you descend from the hills to the Mediterranean.
