  • I recommend to all of nature and hiking lovers! The route is well marked and tracks in good condition. Wilderness cabins are clean and equipped as to be really good. Options include a gas cooking as well as some at least perusruuanlaitto-making facilities. Tent places can be found in the vicinity of Andalucía. The firewood can also be found in Andalucía. Landscapes were really great! 3 3 < <
