It is possible to combine a full sailing experience with marvellous trekking sessions in some of the best spots you can imagine.
We are passionate ski tourers and trekkers. In the winter we have our base in the Pyrenees, at our www.thebaqueiralodge.com. From there we ski tour and climb many peaks. Over the time we have developed a very close relationship with the mountain guides there. During the long winter nights we have spoken of combining two of our most loved activities and have come with this proposal.
We have studied which places offer the best combination of pleasant sailing, good overnight shelter, and trekking opportunities to match from the beginner to the advanced level, including full rigged climbing. Menorca, Mallorca, Corsica are some of the ones we have identified with very good opportunities.
For this trips we enrol Isidro a very experienced mountain guide that will lead the trekking activity. In a typical day you will add to the sailing activity a 3 to 6 hour trekking one.
We will access the trekking with our dinghy, and most likely you will end your activity in a different place, where the boat will be waiting for you.
