The week is not for complete beginners. You need at least level B2. You can read and understand the newspaper and the TV. You can express your opinions individually and in a group. An intensive learning experience out of the classroom recommended to upper-intermediate / advanced spanish speakers and over all, to hiking enthusiast and lovers of spanish history, culture and way of life.

2.- Hiking grading.

What it requires is and adventurous spirit and basic fitness. The route follows long distance path GR-8. You walk on ancient footpaths and drovers routes used for generations by villagers and farmers. Paths are good quality ones but rough underfoot in places. There are no vertiginous sections.

A EASY: You walk for 2 to 4 hours during the day. Easy treks are short at altitudes (less than 400 m). Experience is not necessary at this level. Anyone who is in good health can manage an easy grade.

B MODERATE A walking day would normally be between 4 to 7 hours long. Altitude gain is +600 m. Experience is not necessary at this level but you need to be in good health and reasonably fit.

The hill walks are taken at a gentle pace. Your unforgettable local experience.

Sure you have. In some proposals you even can, if you wish, not taking part in the excursions or visits of the day. In this territory, the traveller will not find noisy streets full of other traveller, only time for stroll, contemplation, for an exciting book or chat it with companions and locals.

Guiris in Mastrath-go combines nature as well as cultural immersion. Outdoor Learning: Spanish listening and speaking during hikes and excursions.

It is a guided tour village to village: Day hikes in the region may last 4-6 hours and are suitable for outdoor novices and above. The programme of daily activities also offers round-the-clock informal Spanish conversation and vocabulary-building too. All the activities are run in Spanish and organised with local experts.
