An excellent short hiking trip, with the convenience of staying in the same place each night with a hot shower and proper bed. Hiking days were long but not too difficult. Amazing views in good weather! And great to be able to look out to where we had hiked on the other days. I was the only person booked in my group, but the trip still went ahead and was awesome.
